How many of you have quit using dampeners because you've found that feel is more important than sound like me?

i quit using one. but because i get more power without a dampner, to me it lowers the power on my racquet and even if u dont use a dampner u still get a nice pop sound from the racquet

I miss the pop sound. But i don't think dampeners cause the pop to go away. I think it's because people are playing with poly strings, including myself. Now i here a plastic like sound, instead of a loud thump.

I like the pop sound a lot, especially from bands like The Raconteurs, Oasis, The Bar Kays, Supersuckers, Supergrass, Cold War Kids, Gorillaz...and the like.

On a tennis racquet, I just use leather pads, no rubber band. Would not consider paying for an actual dampener. Sellout.

Sorry for the dickish response, I'm just chillin' until the Federer match comes on. The only part of the Chakvetadze/Paszek match that held my attention was the Guga cameo.

My racquet makes a ping :/ I hate it.

If I could make that pop sound, I'd take it.
