    Hi i heard alot of reviews on the Gamma black stencil ink and that it keeps fading. I use the Head FXP Tour string and i was wondering if i can put a crystal clear coat on it so it wont fade too fast. Will the crystalmclear coat ruin the string bed and playability? Btw im willing to use Krylon Acrylic Crystal clear

    I think you should use 2 or 3 coats of the Krylon to make sure your racquet stays purdy.

    Try Wilson Super Ink. They all "fade," as you put it. Regardless, any ink will have limited adhesion to any non-porous surface. It will get on the ball. That is the way it is. Re-ink or if you play enough, and hard enough, you'll have to restring, anyway.

    Are you sponsored? or is it just a fetish?
    Have a lot of friends who stencil only for tourneys, not for practice.

    I hate stenciling

    Stencil something non-PC, or there's no point in it:)
