    I just want to creat a poll asking you people if you paint the Yonex Stencil (Logo) on your racquet. Or you just have it blank after you have your racquet restrung.

    Thank you:D

    I don't paint the logo at all because I don't like to leave colors on shuttles nor to see halfly gone colors on strings of my rackets.

    I don't like how the paint scrubs off on shuttles and fades on the string. Looks real ugly IMO so I just leave it off.

    That's a difficult one, I just have one with a fresh (black) logo just in case, in case of what I don't know.

    HeWww maybe thats in your head?

    I usually don't like the logo but I hate playing people with Carlton logo on the racquet as it looks scary. But then again that just in my head ehhehe

    Or the grips? I thought you started this thread just for asking the Paintings on Logos.....that's off the topic.

    For the grip question, you can refer to the Q&A section. G3 is bigger than G4.

    i put stencil only if the red ink is available. black ink on white or orange string makes it dull looking. all of my rackets have yonex logo on them.

    I paint Yonex

    I paint some of my Yonex rackets with red ink...some I leave blank

    Easy to get stencil ink in HK, just go to any racket/stringing store to ask for one.

    Carlton stencil can be downloaded from their website.

    I'm making a SOTX stencil card now...

    I just saw a dude in the gym today with the blue Yonex logo on his racket, and this is the first time I have seen the blue ink :)
    (Usually it's either red or black)

    I got stencils with the new badminton rackets I bought. You can also pick them up from several shops.

    They probably comes free if you buy racquets from them.
