    I would never want to use a string that marks up the balls. In your experience, which ones do that and to what degree?

    TIA

    Between the baseline and netcord.
    Well, black strings I would think leave marks...I've left a few marks in my day. Go with sterling or natural color string.
    Why does it matter if you leave a mark on the ball? If you stencil, you will leave a mark guaranteed.

    It has been many years but BLACK Prince Synthetic Gut Duraflex used to leave black marks all over the ball.

    Don't know, don't care (as you shouldn't either). ;-)

    I've read on here a few times that Genesis Thunderblast Black is a culprit. Does anyone know if Weiss Canon Mosquito Bite Black does this?

    The original Thunder Blast black bleeds a lot. There newer black version bleeds a little bit less.

    PPA black doesn't bleed, in my experience with it at least.

    Any string with color will leave marks.

    I have Volkl power fiber II black in one of my frames. Nice playing string, but it does leave marks on the ball.
