    Do any of you use a stencil ink that seems to "stick" on poly strings?? Mine wears off in like 2 hours of hitting....

    Thanks in advance!

    Not only that, it leaves marks on the balls. I stopped stenciling my racquets.

    Exactly! There must something out there that works... most of the pro's use the poly strings and I don't see the marks on the ball during play

  4. I used to use an all poly setup, and the ink would go everywhere. Now i have a hybrid with a poly/multi or syn gut, so it sticks now, and there is no need to re-stencil before every hitting session.

    My stencil ink stays on for quite a long time on my poly strings! It's not any special stencil ink...

    i just tried sharpie green ink on my nylon strings on my PS, i noticed it went pretty fast and the balls got the green marks on them, but i knew i was hiting the sweetspot a lot since that was the place that the ink went off from

    I'm afraid, that is not solution. I've use the same stencil for Pro Hurricane, Luxilon Alu Power and PolyPlasma. Only on PolyPlasma exists problem.

  10. Most of the pros switch racquets every 7 games or so, therefore the stencil doesnt really rub off, because it usually doesn't happen that fast.
