09-02-20 - Latitude have started to ship their new driver trio Striker, Trident and XXX to the shops.
Striker, 21.4 cm, is a new fairway driver, very easy to control with great glide and moderate fade, the stability rating is set to +0.5, it behaves similar to an Innova TL in the air. The rim is 1.9 cm wide and the configuration is 29.00 mm. Striker is already released in a limited edition (100 discs); all signed by new team member Jesper Lundmark. It is available in weights between 168 and 176 grams.
Trident, 21.4 cm, is a blunt over stable driver which is similar in flight to an Millennium EXP1 (1.7). The rating is set to +2.4, the rim is 1.9 cm wide and the configuration is 36.75 mm. The Trident is available in weights between 173 and 177 grams.
XXX, 21.5 cm and a really over stable slab, comparable to an Xtreme (!), rating is close to +3.0. Rim width about 2.0 cm wide and the configuration is 32.50 mm. Available in weights between 168 and 175 grams.
All discs are molded in the Opto plastic.
The Trident looks interesting to me. I'm a Banshee thrower, it's been my "get out of trouble" disc for about 10 years. IMO, the best Banshees ever were the 1.7 EXP1's. The Champ Banshee is too much of a pig for me, but the 1.7 EXP1's (which essentially is a Banshee L) were made from the CE plastic and were a sweet, sweet bit of sunshine on a cloudy day. A bit more stable than a DX Banshee and super durable. It's probably all hype, as the Trident has a bigger diameter and a wider rim than the EXP1. I might have to give them a try, though. The Opto plastic feels sweet, although I'm not sure how durable it is.
