Wilson went environmentally friendly in 2019 with the Wilson Triniti balls. Now they launch the heavy-duty Wilson Triniti Pro.
Tennisnerd contributor and racquet tester extraordinaire, Henrik Wallensten, reviewed the first Wilson Triniti ball here. Now Wilson launches the Wilson Trinti Pro, which is a bit more expensive and tailored towards advanced and heavy use. The Triniti Pro features premium woven felt “for a consistent bounce” while the ball will feel fresh for hours of use thanks to the Engage Core of integrated plastomer material.
What’s different from a traditional ball? The Wilson Triniti Pro comes in a octagonal container, which is 100% recyclable after use. Wilson calls it a “better ball for the planet”.
How does it play?
I have not yet tested the Wilson Triniti Pro, so I can’t say, but I am going to order a can, sorry sleeve and do a review. A few facts about the Wilson Triniti Pro ball:
- All court surfaces
- Fully recyclable packaging
- USTA approved
- ITF approved
Wilson has made a few strides in the “save the environment”-direction for their product marketing (besides launching a bunch of different design collaborations for their standard racquets). I’m thinking mainly about their Wilson Naked racquets , which created quite a stir due to their stiff price tag (about double a standard racquet). These balls are a bit more expensive than your standard can, which I personally would like to understand why. Is it the packaging that costs more? Or is the engineering of the ball more expensive?
No matter what, I think it’s sensible to pay a bit more for quality tennis balls. You will get better playability and durability out of them, so I wouldn’t try to be too budget conscious around tennis balls if possible.
Keen to hear if you have had any experience with the Wilson Triniti and the Triniti Pro. I’m quite picky when it comes to what tennis balls I use and although I think it’s important to be environmentally conscious, I’m not sure how much of a sacrifice in performance you have to make when choosing the Triniti ball over a regular tennis ball.
