Stencil on Kev/ZX

It doesn't affect movement. If it affected movement why would any pro player ever stencil? They're playing for hundreds of thousands of dollars if not millions. You really think they're going to sacrifice string movement for a bit of sponsor money?

never liked stenciling, but ready the branded stencil crap is usually water based ink which should not be restrictive ....
although if your stencil is say a stencil of a "Stop Sign", hell that may do it..lol
 
Maybe it was my idea: Once the ink dried, I moved the Kev over the ZX and it felt as if it was stuck momentarily at least. I played yesterday and felt no difference to be honest. On the other hand, Kev being like "cloth" the ink has superior adhesive behavior over it.

Most tennis players make more money from sponsors than from tournament winnings.
They also don't use Kevlar/ZX which might be more affected by stencils for all anyone knows. They may also use different stencil ink than the OP.

I still believe stenciling is the single silliest thing a rec tennis player can do since the only reason pros do it is as advertisement. It would be like me putting KPMG on my ball cap because Phil Mickelson does. Logos are widespread enough. Why would someone pay to advertise a company. I'm pretty sure every pro would stop stenciling if given the choice.

Yeah thats my concern. The kevlar is like a sponge. At least it did t seem to affect things for you
