    I'd like to purchase either a black Wilson W dampener (the old version) or the Gamma tri damp (that triangle looking one DLW posted). Or, I can offer... something in return (I don't know what)

    Anyone have those old, black, square-ish Dunlop dampeners, the rubber ones that have a hinge on the top and clasp near the bottom with a piece of plastic? If they're unbroken, I'll trade you 9 various ones (Wilson, Prince, Dunlop and Gamma), plus cash! gesimon1@msn.com

    You guys do know the word is "damper", right? NOT "dampener"?

    Technically speaking, the engineering term of what's going on is called "damping." They could call their product a gollywhopper, and it would still be damping the vibrations (not dampening). I learned this the hard way, when I told one of my professors (who specializes in acoustics) that I was interested in sound dampening. He corrected me, rather sternly, and said "it's damping, not dampening."

    Sorry, Bud. I know that the constant misuse of the word "dampener" has led it to be applied colloquially to vibration dampers, but the correct word is "damper". My guess is that TW calls it that just because they know most people refer to it that way. It's nice to be right occasionally... :) (Oh, and I don't use one, by the way. A damper, that is. The vibration is part of the feel of the racquet...)

    Perhaps... but the accepted term for these devices is now dampener. They are listed as dampeners on every site that sells tennis equipment.

    Yeah, well, people spell night "nite", and that's used all over the place as well. But it's still incorrect. Frequency of usage doesn't make it right.

    So, basically you're simply not willing to admit that you're incorrect.

    Some dampeners I'd like to trade...

    The first 3 links are pictures of the dampeners that I already have. the second picture is of the dampeners that I'd like to trade. If you have a dampener that I don't already have in my collection and want to trade with me for one that is in the second picture, send me an email to topspin34@gmail.com Once we come to an agreement, we can swap via mail. I will mail your dampeners to you asap. Hopefully you will too:) Now, let' s get to trading!

    These 3 links are of the dampeners that I already have
