    Hi there,I just needed some opinion about stencil ink being used on a string. Does it affect the performance? I have seen many people requesting for the stencil logo and many hating it

    I've used victor's official stencil ink several times. I've found no impact on my string's performance at all. I cannot say the same for other forms of non racket stencil ink methods though e.g. markers. But that's simply because I never tried that before and prefer not to risk it :)

    I find no impact when using victor or stringers world ink but for some reason the white yonex ink makes my string slightly dead, personal opinion

    I don't think it affects the performance of the strings, but many people hate it because it may color their non-stenciled racket from hitting shuttles which have been hit by a stenciled racket. Also it kind of looks ugly if the stencil wears of after a few training sessions...
