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

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 )
