Used this vibration dampener many years ago and have only one left. I believe it was the 2nd or 3rd gen of vibration dampener designs after the Vibrazorb (or whateve that spongy thing was called); how's that for old school! I'm fairly positive Dunlop's discontinued it. This Dunlop gave me the right feel with the strings -- not completely deadened them but also took most of the ping away; it was just right. Good design with the clamshell lock and was discrete looking.

Volkl also used to have them for their TR and T9 series of frames and called them Swing Block. The DSG version of this from what I can see on old packaging of both a Dunlop and Slazenger one it's just called Vibration Asorber. They still sell them in Germany where they were a rather huge hit nad if memory serves right, were designed there as well. In the early 90s when I was there, I picked up a few in fluroescent colors as well.

Thank you Thomas. I'll look around the Net to see if any can be purchased in Europe.
