Technifibre Triax 1.28 is the truth (Golf Elbow recovery)

Hi from Vancouver,

i'm a 45 yrs old player, ex 5.0, i was struggling, literally, with a very strong Golfer Elbow, during months and months.
Using Big Banger Original and then switched with a Alu Power. (double mistakes !)

First of all, the only solution I found is : Rest / Shockwave Therapy on the elbow (10 sessions ), okay this s*** hurts a lot, but after a few weeks, the pain disappears ! Et voilà ! Eureka !
Other solution : Technifibre Triax (in my case , 1.28 ), I can play exactly the same than I played before with a Alu Power.
Excelent Spin and Control ! Absolutely no PAIN , I can hit the ball as hard as possible, and it's really really confortable !
(tension 45.2 lbs exactly / 20.5 kgs / I strung it 5 weeks ago, and didn't play for ... one month. The tension didn't drop at all, which I cannot say for the other clash in Luxilon )

Highly highly recommended.
 
I think its less the Triax is the cure and more that Luxilon BBO and Alu were the cause.

I think there are a lot of muted multis and syn guts that could provide similar benefits. HDX, PPC, Velocity, RIP control, to name a few.
Yes, you are also right.
There are other strings in the market, too many to mention, but the thing is..... that this string feels pretty similar to a copoly and bite the ball very well, much better than a Rip control for example.
The 1.28mm is not stiff at all.
Really impressed by this string.


I am obviously very happy to play again, you can notice it on my message ;-)

Anyone that can compare it to isospeed cream 1.28 ?

Which one has more power between GW and Cream?
Definitely Cream. It's a lot more bouncy than your average poly. I like it for its comfort and tension maintenance in a gut/poly hybrid. But for performance the Ghostwire is more crisp and refined. It's just not quite as good at comfort and tension maintenance. But if I had to play one match for all the marbles, Lux/Ghostwire would be high on my list of string choices.

@tennisintheeighties and @PigPen glad Triax is working out for you both.

{Triax or HDMX mains} and {YPTA or Cream or Ghostwire crosses} IMO, you can mix and match those five strings around to see what you like best. I wouldn't mix HDMX and Triax personally (as they are in the same family), or YPTA and Cream, but Ghostwire is the copoly jack of all trades like Head Velocity is as a multi. Ghostwire and Velocity mix well with many things.

HDMX - Triax:
Comfort: HDXM >Triax
Spin: Triax > HDMX

YPTA - Cream - Ghostwire:
Comfort: YPTA > Cream > Ghostwire
Spin: Ghostwire > Cream = YPTA
Tension maintenance/Playability: Ghostwire > Cream > YPTA

For some players, YPTA gets stiffer as plays. For others, YPTA is the softest of the YPTA/Cream/GW

Absolutely, it doesn't make sense to use HDMX and Triax together.
I will update this post in a few weeks (need a little time to heal my elbow 100%) - Ghostwire on crosses with Triax Main, I'm sure it works perfectly !

Did you use 1.28?
I tried it in a hybrid as a main, as a cross as a full bed.
Hybrid > Full > Cross.
It's a great string but should be like $8 not $20.
For ~$21, I'd rather do KLIP natural gut / PolyTour Air or Revolve crosses or something else as soft. You can even buy Element on sale now for $12 a pack on TW US.
Velocity is way cheaper and lasted ~3.5-4h although didn't feel as plush.
Yeah, was a hitting sessions so lots of balls (not a match).
Soft polys usually last me 5-6h, stiffer 6-8h mix training/match.

Agree about all the Technifibre Strings prices.
Triax should be the best on main, i believe it too.
Unfortunately, i cannot order anything from TW. Shipping costs for Canada are totally unfair. (@TW Staff )
And...i’m on the west coast too.-
That’s why I order in UK. Weird, but only £4 freight.

I use the thin version of GW 18g and 19g and they are as soft as YPTA and still keep good tension maintenance.

For some reason my experience a few years back with Isospeed Cream (big fan of Isospeed strings in general) is that it to me played stiff and I did not like the sound and plastic feeling.

I am tempted to get a few sets and try it out at lower tension, I have since changed racquets and Cream might need a 2nd chance.

BTW @g4driver did you ever try a simple sync gut (like Gosen OG Micro) as a cross string for poly ?

Cheers, H

Agree about the shipping to Canada. If they just gave a USPS option instead of UPS it would be so much better. I also order from UK because of the shipping issue.

I have a reel of 1.30mm synthetic gut for players who use with syn gut. The most common syn gut users I have use 1.30mm syn gut as a cross with a shaped poly main. This combo seems to works best for hard-hitting players 4.0+ men who use shaped poly mains, like Volk Cyclone, Black Widow and syn gut crosses which last longer than the same gauge multifilament cross. But some of these 4.0 / 4.5 men prefer 1.40mm (15g) Prince Premiere Control as a cross with a smooth poly.

For non-string breakers here are my two most popular setups:

a) 1.30mm Technifibre Multifeel mains / 1.30mm Head Velocity Crosses is a $9.50 setup that works well for beginning players, young juniors, 3.0/3.5 women. Sure a full bed of syn gut could work, but Multifeel Main/ Head Velocity for $9.50 is a much better setup than syn gut for these players and gets zero compliments of the strings sticking out of place like syn gut. Strings sticking out of place is #1 complaint from full bed of syn gut users. For less than $10 per frame, MF/Velocity lasts these players a year and solves the strings out of place issue.

b) 1.28mm Isospeed Cream / 1.30mm Head Velocity Crosses is $9 setup that works well for many older 3.5 men, and 4.0 women '30s and up
 
I wanna update the situation about the triax 1.28.
I played one hour on tuesday on indoor courts and it was amazing.
New update: i played 1:30h today. Same indoor court.
The string broke after 35 minutes.
Pic Here : https://ibb.co/4PcZqkq
So i only played 1:35H (with a friend of mine rate level 5.5, so I hit hard today)

complicated situation..... LMAO !

Triax More Spin, More Crisp, Doesn't get stuck out of place as much (atleast initially), Same Power....

Velocity is muted, especially on super soft rackets. Velocity has a better price and frays less.
Same power, comparable to any other polys ?
 
Yesterday, I brought my 2 clash tour.
One in Triax. The other one in BB original ( I was busy this week, so I didn’t go to the tennis store)
Broke the triax ( i was playing well, too bad)
Switched to the Clash in BB
First thing : better sensation in Triax, very good spin ( Spin comes definitely from your technique, not your string, but the spin was terrific yesterday in Triax no joke )
Second thing : Absolutely no pain on my GE (0/10). Not stiff at all to me. And this point is crucial to me because it gives me more confidence

Third point : pain level at the end of the game yesterday, with the luxilon BB (49 lbs ) : 2.5-3 /10, and didn’t seem I played better with it

Same Power As Velocity MLT.

Ive never played poly other than the prestrung rackets I bought and cut out soon after. I (probably) never will now that I have TRIAX and MULTIFEEL I can see more TRIAX type strings coming up in future as well...
