Gamma Stencil Ink

Comments: I used the black ink with Head Intellistring Strings. The ink wore off in a couple of hours. But it is still visible for a few weeks. Not so good. I changed to the Head branded ink and the bottle looked identical except for the Head name instead of Gamma. The ink almost totally wore off in two hours. It's a waste of money. Maybe a permanent marker pen would last longer.

Comments: I'm using two nTours with Big Banger and Prince syn gut on them. I purchased all three colors, and they all have the same quality. They are all Gamma branded. They do fade a little, but not completely. It's a cheap way to enjoy the game just a little more without buying something over 50 bucks.

Comments: The black is far. But when I was putting the red on a racquet the applicator cap flew off and ink spilled everywhere!!! If you buy this, please for your own sake, be careful!

Comments: I ordered this just to add some fun to my racquet. I drew a smiley face probably 6 months ago, and it's faded some but just now needs to be reapplied (I need to restring anyway). I still get comments from my opponents. If you're just looking to add a little fun to tennis then you can't lose for 3 bucks.

Comments: Not too good for monofilament strings. But it's still good stuff. People who are unsatisfied, consider this, for a monofilament string, the ink has nowhere to go except around the string, therefore, hitting rubs it off. With multi's, the ink can seep into the string through the filaments, giving it longer life. If you use mono's, prepare to keep applying it, but it's still great and I love it. Easy to apply.

Comments: I use red on natural gut. It holds up pretty well. It is not that easy to apply, though. I would rather have a spray, if someone makes it.

Comments: This ink is not designed to work with polys. It gets rubbed off them after every hitting session. Thus, I would not recommend the black, Gamma stencil ink if you have a poly.

Comments: To me I hate this stencil ink. I got the black one and it keeps on fading away. Who knows maybe itís the strings. I use Babolat pro hurricane.

Comments: Beware; you're not getting the same brands for the colors... Red is Yonex, black is Gamma, and blue is? I forgot. The red and the blue are ok but the black is terrible! After one match I could see the ink already fading away! Maybe itís the string... I always use Luxilon BB Alu Power.
