I made some stencils and don't have any proper ink....
Would it effect the strings in any way?
I believe it is fine. I used to do it. It is just really time consuming
It works, it just gets your balls reallly marked up
Man - I hate the smell of the ink from sharpies
About the balls getting marked up, that pretty much happens regardless of the stencil ink, especially if you use poly strings.
I remember my coach one time got angry at me as
i marked all of his fuzzy yellow things....then he remembered
that he was the one who strung my racket
JUst did it and put an OM symbol on....
3-4 minutes is way too long.....getting stencil ink!
what is an OM symbol?
It won't hurt your strings but as others suggested it will mark your balls (of the tennis variety.)
So, it won't last very long. Better off getting some stencil ink (which isn't permanent either but will last a lot longer than Sharpie ink)
Dint know this, I always used a permanent marker.
It's a hindu symbol representing the sound that was made when the universe was crated
Now everytime you mess up and about to get angry u can look at the racket and you will regain peace and max concentration!
oui oui...that was the idea
I lol'ed at the typo because it opens up some interesting possibilities.
woops just noticed that!
that looks sick. Did you use the the sharpie or the ink
this is sharpie.....doesn't look to bad,
I think it sticks to polys better as it seems to be clinging on!
Stencil Ink always comes off of my polys after a couple hours, but it's a lot easier to apply than sharpie.
But if you want to use colors besides white, black, blue, or red than sharpie is pretty much your only option.
dont forget green
Yeah, I've used sharpies but the stencil ink is much easier to apply and doesn't mark up the balls as much.
