I Think The Rubber Band Works Better Than The Dampener Because Sometimes The Dampener Takes Away All Of The Feel, While The Rubber Band Dampens But Still Gives The Player Feel

use whatever you want, like i said before they will do about the same thing...the reason i use a rubberband is because it doesnt come flying off like most pop in dampners...and ofcourse agassi uses it as well...

Rubberband is probably the most effective dampener there is, and they are pretty cheap to get as well.

I dont think you should price as a reason to use rubberbands. You spend $150+ on a new racquet then you dont want to spend $3 on a dampender? I can understand if you use the rubberbands if you like it, but I dont think you should use it just because it's cheap.

BTW I use the rubberband, cable grommet, and no dampener on my main racquets. But mainly cable grommets.

i don't see why not, i mean over here in the UK, a Head Logo Dampner costs £4 ($7) for two (they come in pairs), however a pack of rubberbands costs 99p for around 100.......... and you can't compare a racket to a rubberband, rubberbands are more cost effective in terms of being a dampner, if your going to buy a racket, you'll search around (and get TW to match your best price of course ;)) however why would you want TW to match your price if the difference is only $10? i mean if your gonna spend that much on a racket you might as well spend the extra ten bucks no? its just the saying "save the pennies"

I tried using the rubber band as a vibration dampener one time and I found no noticeable difference between having it on and not having it on. It did not seem to reduce any vibrations at all. Not saying it doesn't work for some people, just relaying my experience.
