So guess it boils down to either ordering another trinity at 86.5 grams and bp of 287 to be make it over 9's across the board or living in the garage having been exiled by your wife. If you can hook up a tv and it is cool in the garage you know what I would do.
Easiest would be sell it to a friend who will buy it right after the game he tried it in and buy another as wife would never know.

Forget TV, I need internet access so I can read BC

Initial impression of the new toys is as follows (both are unstrung at this time):
(1) Ultra - mother of all stiff shaft . . . bar none (mass: 88.7 grams; bp: 292 mm)
The shaft is noticeably thicker than the Trinity and hence the stiffness.
The frame is also very thick.
The whole thing is a meat clever.
(2) Trinity - what most folks would use (mass: 89.2 grams; bp: 290 mm)
Not as stiff as the Ultra but still very stiff.
Overall, the two models' fit and finish seems very good. However, the U grommets better fit against the grommet holes.
Can't wait to string them up and test them out . . .

The Ultra should be GrandMaster TwoBeer's dream!

But to be honest i am neither looking for über-durable or a "new" ti-10 :-)
I am looking for max power+control+agility :-)
Twobeer does seldom break shaft frame on racket when wacking shuttles, and most high-end rackets today I've tried (apart from some YY models) have not really had any issues with up to 35lbs string jobs..
Racket breakage due to string-breakage and clashes are just he order of nature, so I learned to live with the risks :-D
I have no doubt that the Ultra and Trinity are great rackets, but techonology wise there isn't really something "new" that tickles twobeers buying reflexes :-)
I will follow the progress closely, and are more tempted to take a more detailed dive into future efforts, like models using woven + tapered shaft (tapered frame?!?) etc.

Just tried the Trinity with 2g each added to 3 and 9 o'clock this morning. WOW, a world of difference. The clear is great and smash is crisp and direction is there. Much easier.
So yes, Dear Sir DinkALot is right. Pick the heavier Trinity and you will not be disappointed...
Still I will not trade my Cab30ms with it. Because I am more used to the Cab feeling...

Let me clarify, Dear Mast guava...
I had a conversation with Sir Dinkie last week. We had a minor miss communication. The Trin I got was a light version and I was having trouble with it. After I spoke with Master Panda, your partner in crime, I realized I need the heavier version. Without asking an exchange and restring the racquet. I add weight to the head and that makes the racquet tick and plays much better than before. However, I will not say it is better or worse than Cab30ms because I still gets better shot placement on my Cab30 and more use to it.

Had StringFest 101 last night at Optiblue's place. Many thanks to Optiblue and bro for setting up the mounting. I was able to string up the Ultra to 36 X 38 with NGY-95, no pre-stretch.
