 (12 hrs.)
I mainly played it indoors. Just one session outdoors.
It lasted 12 hours, then I cut it out. It started to fray early, but that didn't seem to affect playing characteristics nor durability. I guess it would have snapped after 13 hours, or after 7-8 hours outdoors, just like the Isospeed Control+.
The string provides particularly good control. I felt very good against hard hitters and on the returns. I think it could also be interesting in hybrids. Spin was also quite good, especially for a multifilament. I had better access to spin compared to the Isospeed Control+. It worked very well on my backhand cross.
Overall a very interesting multifilament with great control and very good spin. Still it provides good comfort and a typical multifilament feel. Durability is among the best in the multifilament segment. Tension maintenance was excellent. Initial DT was 39 or 38, and after 11 hours it was still at 34 DT. That is awesome. OK it wasn't hot and I played indoors, but still great values.

Comparison relates to Isospeed Control+, my favorite string so far.
The strings are quite similar, but the Triumph has something special to it. It provides better control and crisper feel than the Control+. Especially on hard strokes and returns. The other characteristics are equal. Maybe the Control+ provides a tad better feel and comfort. The Control+ is almost too lively at times, that's when control suffers. But both are great strings.

I played with Wilson NXT, Gamma TNT2, and Gamma Live Wire Professional strings. I felt the Triumph offered better feel, control, and comfort than those strings with similar durability, spin, and power.

I had clamps too tight at begining and had some ghosting but easy to work with. Should have strung 56/54 next time.

Excellent power, control, spin and comfort. Less stiff than Prince Premier Attack. Better feel, more pocketing. Good spin on short angle shots. They have started to stick but still have good feel at 15/20 hours of hitting.
