Why would you? Epics get beat up so easily, I went through 4 last summer. Plus the plastic feels a lot like r pro plastic which doesn't seem to dye well or at least tends to bleed. Just my 2 cents

Judging from the plastic I say it will suck, but I have never actually tried it. Too porous, too soft.

Dont do it, i dyed my epic

let it soak in warm dye for hours, dye cooling obviously...

when i pulled it to rinse and check, the dye barely held
it dyed as well as dx...

i'll try to upload a pic here soon, i know i have one,
it fades really easy too, marker wipes off after sitting on it for months... so does pen

if i had my camera handy, i'd show the fade of a few months, that pic was pretty soon after dying, i dont' even know if its been thrown in months...

i know if i rub it hard with a rag the dye comes off - kinda - it bleeds, blurrs, and eventually rubs off

i'm sure i'm exagerating to an extent, i used rit and water - no acetone

but i know everytime i wrote my name it rubbed off,, 2 markers, 3 pens fail... i really want the pen innova uses to mark x outs... that seems to be irremovable
