Hi ya!

After some years of inactivity, it's time to play some tennis again. I have a pretty old school racket, the Fischer VT PRO 98. Yes, that is the same racket a well known poker player used to play with:

When I picked up the racket yesterday, I noticed the characteristic Fischer dampener had disintegrated. I had to cut it loose, since it no longer 'unbuttoned'.
I have played with a LOT of dampeners back in the days, and this is my favourite by far, especially combined with the vacuum Fischer frame. I am talking about one of these (the white ones):

I've searched pretty much everywhere to find a new one, but to no success. Does anybody know if these dampeners are still available somewhere?

Cheers and happy holidays!

You could use a sampras O and tie it on with a rubber band.
