    I find this dampener really nice. I like the feel with the insert but it is heavier and I feel it in my swing.
    What do you prefer : with or without the insert ? And why ?

    Depends on the racquet/strings and how much pinging there is. Usually without if I feel the stringbed is too overly muted. The added weight of the insert doesn't really throw me off, but I actually do notice slight weight.

    I prefer them with, though I have a really hard time believing you can notice a difference in over all weight. Maybe perceived, but c'mon..

    I prefer them with, I dont feel much of a difference at all its just I dont fancy misplacing the insert if I dont use it and decide to go back to it
