    The Black psgd seems a lot greasier than regular PSGD. It would slip out of my hands a lot more and crosses were a pain (18x20 racquet btw)

    I noticed that too. is the black just painted on? I heard from some people that the black PSGD leaves black "grill-marks" on the ball after contact. Good thing i only have 1 black PSGD left.

    Greasy? I dont know i dont string, it does however leave black marks on the ball, that doesnt bother me, in fact it helps me distinguish my balls from the people playing next to me

    i used once a gray psgd 16 and it was very greasy, while the other colors of psgd i use like blue and white are not greasy at all.

    I thought the same thing with the dull yellow color. The black Head Syn. was kind of greasy too.

    i don't know why, but my white one was sort of greasy, i think the one from the reel is greasier than the one in packs, well for the white color it is

    I have only used the white and fluorescent green colors and neither of those are greasy.

    Hmm, maybe waxy is a better word. or slippery.

    The white wasn't bad. I use that one often without trouble. Maybe it was the string pattern that bothered me.

    Silicone! The coating on some colors react different to silicone. Transparent Gold is different than coated Black!
