Does someone know how many grams a vibe dampener is? 1) like this one http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageACWILSON-PF2.html. 2) like this one http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageACWILSON-NTRAP.html.

Thanks

They are all over the place. The Rubber Band has to be the least...others vary quite a bit. Just take a few over to the local post office and drop them on the digital postal scale

Regards,
Steve

You can certainly feel the difference in swingweight when adding one.

Yuppers,

Adding weight in most cases increases SW...

I heard somewhere on this board that the Babolat dampeners that Ljubo and Nadal use weigh somewhere around 2-3grams.

I weighed two of my dampeners on a laboratory scale for accuracy. A Wilson Profeel (the "W") weighed 2.57 grams = 0.09 oz.

A Gamma Shockbuster "Worm" weighed 3.21 grams = 0.11 oz.

I saw that a Technifibre Vibra Clip is advertised as 2 grams.

I seriously doubt that anyone could feel the weight of one of these. For example, take an 11 oz racquet. Adding 0.1 oz is adding 0.9%, i.e. less than 1%. And it's added pretty close to the balance point of the racquet, so it's not going to change the balance.

Changing to a thicker or thinner overgrip would have a much more noticeable difference, especially since it's at the handle.

Well, who am I to say it's all in your head. Maybe you're just a sensitive guy.

your high...

your high...

First of all, it should be "you're high" or "you are high". Second, maybe, some people are more sensitive than others, without getting high. For example:

i am using sppp right now in both my flexpoint rad tours at 58lbs...i am very sensitive when it comes to tension loss, and string movement...if you are like me then this is the string for you...holds tension extremely well, and no string movement after 12 hrs of play....

Well,

On the computer.. most young folks would only type "ur". Gotta love that shorthand of IMs and Text messages.

I can feel the difference, too! Aside from that, the vibration of the strings feels completely different without one! No, it doesn't vibrate my handle, but it feels so different! I guess I'm a sensitive gal ;)

SteveI, Actually most young people, for "you are" or "you're" would type u r and type ur for "your" which is completely different. People don't type ru for are you do they? ;) I type words out :shock:

You people that say you can feel the weight of a small wilson w logo dampener, or head dampener logo are thinking a little bit too much... LOL

a rubber band only weighs about 1.1 grams. [rubber band #64]

So, how does this work? We keep going until someone gets bored and surrenders? Then, the other one is declared the winner? Ok, then, you win, I have a small penis, I'm gay and whatever else you would like to add. You can ask the moderators for your prize, when they wake up.
