Thread: X-Core 3 Spoke Wheelchair Wheels

  1. #21
    The weight isn't that much more. Are you using a tennis elbow strap? Can you play with one? I was scheduled for surgery until a PA suggested I try one and explained how to use it. The pain went away as soon as I positioned the button between the tendons. He said they rub across each other and the button keeps them apart long enough for the to heal. I guess he meant the swelling to subside.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

The Spinergy is 3.35 lbs with tire and the X core is 4.30 lbs with the same tire. I did know someone who ran 8 degrees of camber on a everyday chair for a few years with no issues, so that is a good sign. I played some pretty hard tennis tonight and no cracks yet, time will tell. The thing that worries me even more is I have tournament in a couple weeks and have redeveloped tennis elbow after being rid of it the past couple of years.

    Thanks, my doubles partner immediately went to his bag to grab me a strap but It did not seem to help out much, dunno if I might have had it on wrong. I had a couple straps at home that I will start to use again, not playing again until Friday so definitely gonna where the strap, it still hurts today and I suspect it will for quite sometime.

    I may end up going with those if one of the X cores breaks. No way can I go back to the old wheels. I think I will put them on my everyday chair and have them ready as backups incase one of the X cores breaks during a tournament or something. But I am impressed with the feel of the X cores on the Tennis chair so far.
