I bought 2 Youtek Radicals a couple of months ago and as is standard now they came with vibration dampeners. The only problem is that they are rock solid and so are completely useless.
Has anyone else had this problem?? If it is reoccuring then surely Head need to sort this out.

Yeah the Head dampeners are so stiff. I switched to one called Vibrex. Works great.

Yeah i agree the Vibrex dampeners are so much better than the head ones.

Oh yeah I barely can wait for the new orange dot djoko dampener...
It'll be way better than any of the current head damps.
I wanna get one...:cry::)

What is this orange dot dampener that people are talking about. I haven't heard about these before.

The only Head dampener I like is the Head Logo that is all black. The rest Head Logo dampeners are way too stiff and dont dampen anything, actually make the stringbed feel stiffer IMO.

Head dampeners create more vibration on my racket -_-

The best shock absorber I've found are the Babolat Cosmic Damp "alien head" ones, they're extremely soft and work better than anything else I've tried.

My favorite Head dampener as well. Definately softer than the clear Head logo dampeners.
