Testing with multiple players. The 1.28 1.33 and 1.38. Very good first reactions. Control, Powerful, soft on arm.
Need more testing on hours of play with a string job, with more players and more different game style players.

Initial conclusion: Very interesting String.

anyone using this string ?
BTW testing with high level players.
Players who break poly or top quality Multi's in less then 2 hours.
Players who play with poly for years.
Players who play Multi for years.

What gauge and what racket.
Triax 1.28
Blade 98 v7 16x19

And what can you compare it with, so what do you use.
What string tension?

I strung it at 22-23kg
Tried it full bed, as a main and as a cross.
It's similar to Head Velocity MLT.
Clay - ALU Power 1.25 / Element 1.25 hybrid on clay -- lasts 8-10h - 22kg/22kg
Hard - Babolat VS 1.30 or Wilson Gut 1.30 / Element 1.25 on hard court -- lasts 20-30h+ - 25kg/22kg

Your NG / Element last 20-30h and Triax breaks at 2h?

this is very odd...

I tried Triax 1.34 amd 1.38 with Isospeed cream and Ghostwire 16. Really happy with it. Used to play NG/ Irukandji and broke mains in 6h

What tension you dialing in your Triax/Cream setup?

My test result: comfortable & soft string, poly like spin, breaks in 2 hours for $21 (€18) per set.
Use a thicker version and it will last quite a bit longer. I have a 4.5A ( Appeal Down from 5.0) client Will Shelley (confirmed on the USTA website) who could easily be bumped back to 5.0 based on his results.
Will uses 1.38mm Triax / Yonex Poly Tour Air 1.25mm and gets roughly 13 hours out of Triax mains before he breaks them. Will broke 1.30mm Hyper G in roughly 12 hours for two straight years, so yes the 1.38mm Triax last him longer than 1.30mm Hyper G. Six Yonex Ai 98 frames. He plays out of Mt Pleasant Rec. (a suburb of Charleston SC) His name, level, and frames all easily verified by several members on this forum. Your mileage may vary, but thicker strings last longer.

Just to give you some more data, I had Will using both 1.35mm BabolatTonic Gut / YPTA and 1.30mm VS Gut / YPTA 1.25mm, and the 1.38mm Triax / YPTA 1.25mm last just a little longer than both of the NG/YPTA setups and is cheaper.

I have a thread about how he got to his current setup. He will have surgery after his son graduates high school to fix a torn golfer's tendon. But as you can see from his results he is playing at a remarkable level considering he has a torn tendon. 7-0 at 4.5 USTA this spring with a torn tendon. Laid back guy and all around great person!

 
I want to thank Greg (g4driver) for introducing me to the Triax/Iso and Triax/Ghostwire.

similar power to NG/irukandji or NG/lux Alu, more comfortable (plush, pocketing) and even better Control.

i must admit i was reluctant at first to use such a thicker gauge (as i used 1.30 gut). I am happy I did. Tension lasts significantly longer, and what’s strange is that after 5-6 hours of solid hitting the bed has settled and althouh power does not drop significantly, control is even better!
