Re: Vibration Dampeners?

By far the best one I've ever used:



It's a Prince, model TX208. I don't think you can buy them retail--mine shipped with a couple of old Prince racquets I bought 5 or 6 years ago, but I did manage to find one on eBay several months back. I think Prince is making newer models of this type, however--probably the same effect. I swear by them--the difference without and with is like night and day, never had one fall out, and I hit harder than anyone within at least a couple of counties....

Re: Vibration Dampeners?

I use rubber bands and now I have got addicted to them. Never thought I would trade my dampener for a rubber band, but I did. It actually dampens better and adds zero weight to your racket, whereas a normal dampener at least adds 3 grams to your racket.

Re: Vibration Dampeners?

I use a rubber band as well. They're super light in weight and still allow a tad bit of feel imo. I'll never use anything else.

Re: Vibration Dampeners?

I used to use rubber bands but ever since I switched to Yonex Ezone Ai 100 I haven't felt the need.

Re: Vibration Dampeners?

I used these two types ( see pictures)

And Prince is much better. Head is useless.
