I've built two sets of triplet laced wheels and have a third on the back burner. My first triplet rear was a H Sons sl42. The spoke holes were ever so slightly offset. Much less than other rims I've seen. It laced up fine and rides without any issues but I'd have preferred the spoke holes be drilled straight or drilled for triplet lacing. My second was a Kinlin 380. It's drilled straight. It worked out perfectly. I have a third in the works for my wife. A Kinlin XR19W. It's also drilled straight.

The DS/NDS spoke tensions come out at less than 10% difference. It really works well.
