Comments: I didn't think much about dampeners -- rubber bands worked fine, at least Andre used to think so. But
now that I play with a racquet that has a nondescript end cap (Babolat) I found that Kirschbaums Cherry dampener did the trick.
You see, they have their logo right side up and up side down on the dampener (the only one that does this I think) so that you can
use it to spin for serve. They do tend to fly out of the racquet if you use a smooth poly string, but at $1 a piece, you get 3 in a
pack -- swing away!
Comments: I'm not sure why but these fly off my racket occasionally. It might have something to do with the odd
strips connecting both sides of the dampener at the 12, 3, 6, and 9 positions. Hard to explain, but these were the cheapest shock
absorbers on the website and they get the job done.

Comments: Awesome dampener. It complements my Yonex RDS 001 mid, and it takes away the ping sound but
leaves some feel.
