    No; some racquets have dampeners built in, but if not, they don't come with them.

    I know the Speeds are at least supposed to come with the Djokovic dampeners...actually, thinking back, yeah all of them should come with a dampener. Jeez, all racquets should come with one!

    Ahh yes, built-in dampeners. Beyond pointless.

    up till this year all HEAD frames came with a dempener
    they were sealed to the handle or in a plastic case .

    BUT: in 2013 HEAD does not give a dempener with every frame!
    The new Graphene Speeds come without dempener for example.

    Graphene Instinct Rev did not. I'm thinking that, because of the shared holes, it's less necessary.

    I've hit with IG Prestige S, IG Instinct MP, Graphene Speed Rev and G Insinct Rev without---all of which have shared holes---and there's little to no string ping.
