What do you think of stenciling your racquet strings?
i typically stencil my strings because i sting myself and it looks better but it is pretty anoying that the balls get marked up so muchWhat do you think of stenciling your racquet strings?
guys very interesting...I stencil like superman1272, just for laughs usually. I do the playboy bunny sometimes or the transformers thing. I'm supposed to do the babolat lines but I'm pretty sure they don't have spies watching me...For tournaments I do the lines though.
You can buy official stencils from tennis shops normally, I got my Wilson stencil from some sports store online. However these custom ones are normally custom made by whoever wants them, print off the pattern on card, cut it out and stencil!guys very interesting...
may i know where i can find these stencils?
Please Post some pics to see it... sounds cool !!!I string for myself and others too. I'll only stencil if they ask me to, otherwise I don't bother as its a pain.
I sometimes stencil my own, but rarely. When I do put a stencil on, its never the standard racket logo. I instead prefer to put funny things on like smiley faces. I put the Linkin Park logo with some white ink on some SP Tornado a few weeks back - looked really cool.
YEAH... and don't go wearing things with logos like Nike or Under Armour or Fila or Addidas... Unless of course you are sponsored by those companies or can perform like you could be sponsored!Unless your sponsored or play like you could be sponsored don't stencil your strings.
OMG yet another poster gone wild. I ment why even bother stenciling if you don't have too.YEAH... and don't go wearing things with logos like Nike or Under Armour or Fila or Addidas... Unless of course you are sponsored by those companies or can perform like you could be sponsored!
Don't be a poser or a tool of the corporate machine. In fact, let's all wear the same colored clothes and shoes. Why not all play with a blacked out frame with no graphics. Hell, why not all of us use the SAME RACQUET! That will show 'em! We don't need any individuality in our sport! Let's not be swayed by corporate logos or what we might think of as fun! That crap is nonsensical and for a bunch of school kids that are not mature like us. There is no place in our sport for such frivolty.
NO SPONSORS? THEN NO STENCILS!!!!!
Among my crew (all hardcore 4.5's and up), you're thought to be a poseur if you arrive with a stenciled frame - unless it's a demo, of course.
I think our prevailing attitude is to let one's play do the talking; there is only a mild curiosity in our ranks about what equipment is being used, and none of us "advertise."
I apologize if my post seemed harsh. I was just trying to be funny in a sacarstic fashion. It is so hard to get sarcasm across in this type of medium. There should be a font for SARCASM.OMG yet another poster gone wild. I ment why even bother stenciling if you don't have too.
