    i've been using my dunlop stencil and my dunlop stencil ink that dunlop sent me cuz of my partial sponsorhip and the ink seems to fade after only an 1 and a half of playing.

    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.

    wilson poly ink is the best but is available only in red

    for black, babol color is the best IMO

    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.
