    when you see a babolat racket it has the 2 black lines at the bottom of the strings.

    Can you buy strings with it already painted on or would I be better stencilling it on.

    Cheers David

    that would be impressive if you could buy it with black lines already on the string in a pack but sadly not.

    stencil ink it is

    i dont know specifically the width of the line but u could just used a straight edge of a laminated sheet of paper run it down the edge for the top line then flip and do the other side of the line , if you understand what i mean then repeat for the second line

    from what i've seen on a tennis racket i thought it was just two rows of strings toward the neck of the racket, maybe it's different on a badminton racket? but couldn't you just use a sharpie and color it in?

    sharpies eat away at the string due to the chemicals in them so thats a no go

    oil markers dont eat strings so you could try that but iv now changed to stencil ink and its cheap and much quicker
