    got a link to what you're referring to? If you mean this one I've tried it (using it right now actually) and it works pretty well. You can read feedback on it, also. The black/yellow one matches my RDS001, too. :)

    That's the same one Nadal has been using for a while right? Looks cool, but I'll probably end up sticking with the O that Pete used. It's simple and clean.

    i personally didnt like the bab one that much. it didnt stop the vibration as much as my head worm dampener (see sig). and yes, i put the little thing in the middle of the "O" as well, still not enough. im going to try it on my next string combo which should hold tension better then my last combo did (i tried that dampener when the string were losing tension). ill try it again just to make sure that its not good, just incase it turns out to be nice :D

    It's only supposed to kill the most vibration w/o the plastic thing in the middle. With the custom "O" thing its only suppose to kill the annoying sound and some vibration as to not mute the feel of the ball

    oh darn :( well, fi you really want to mute the sound go for something like a gamma shockbuster, those things really kill the sound
