Sensible or sensitive?

Re: Vibration Dampeners?

I refuse to use them, I absolutely hate them! I get no feel on the ball.

Emm no.
Sensible means making the right choices while sensitive means affected by slight changes.

I used a dampener for a while but my forehand went AWOL, I was late of everything and my dropshots were more like lobs, so I had to take it off.

Re: Vibration Dampeners?

I lost mine like a year ago and I didn't bother to buy another one, and I thought the difference wasn't that big until 2 days ago, when my mate found a vibration dampener on the court and gave it to me cause he already had one, my God I hit the ball with much more conviction and the match ended up in a tie, and I hadn't won a set against him in months First match in ages in which I hit winners of every kind: forehands, backhands, volleys, overheads, even aces And the occasional dropshots of course

MIRJANA LUCIC-BARONI ☢ | SAM STOSUR ☯ | MARTINA HINGIS ♚ | DANIELA HANTUCHOVA ✯ | MADISON KEYS ☢ | OLGA PUCHKOVA ❤

Don’t squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

Did you just compare me to Wozniacki? - Legend

Re: Vibration Dampeners?

I did use them, until I changed my racket

I remember when I was warming up with my old racket and I went to do some smashes then all of a sudden I couldn't smash, serve, forehand or backhand and I realised my vibration dampener fell off

Re: Vibration Dampeners?

I get no feel on my shots when I use a dampener, however I do not like the ping sound one bit. I had a Prince dampener that I really liked and played well with, but unfortunately lost it a year ago. Tbh, I now use a #64 rubber band as a "dampener" and they work like a treat for me. But yeah, weirdly I don't like playing without one.

Re: Vibration Dampeners?

Imo, Prince ones are good. Head ones tend to fall off a lot
And the Wilson smiley face ones aren't bad either

When I was playing with the head one it only fell off once (from a mishit smash )
