Are you using a poly string? because the ink is made pretty much just for syn/nat gut.

I found Babolat Stencil ink to be quite long lasting.

I think Wilson makes a "Super Stencil Ink" which is promoted as being longer lasting on poly. I have not tried it however. Good luck.

It's odd that they only have it available in red. Well, it's odd to me at least. I would think black is more popular, so if they were going to only have the "super" version in one color, black would be it.

I pretty sure Wilson did it only in red as the red W is Wilson's stencil on strings. They would not want other manufacturer logo to last as long so they only made it in red to highlight their logo

Interesting - the rationale certainly makes sense. Thanks Chris.
