    it could be possible, but maybe TW just does not stock these colors. by the way, there's also an amber color that TW stocks

    They do have colors, and unlike other colored strings, Laserfibre and Gosen are the only ones where the color's not supposed to affect or change the playability. The Gosen colored strings are BEAUTIFULLY orgasmically prismatically colored, like something you'd see the robots from Transformers using. The only reason you haven't seen them yet is because most online retailers don't carry them.

    I bought a big batch (for me, 25 sets) of teal blue OG Sheep Micro off the auction site awhile back, and have been using it to hybrid with Cyber Flash mains. It's pretty good string and was very cheap to buy. The only thing that's been a surprise is that the color can leave "grill marks" on the tennis balls sometimes.

    isn't the "grill marks" cause by something else? i see it on new balls alot and never know what it is. The strings or the hard court or the fences.

    In the case of my blue Gosen string, it's definitely the string causing the marks. The color and spacing on the balls could only be from the string. And it goes away when I string up a full set of Cyber Flash instead of my usual hybrid.
