    Wow! My threads have inspired you to try it! Roddick ties 2 strings at the bottom middle of the strings.

    Although I have seen new fangled methods of installing a rubberband to the strings of a racquet, I still prefer this method: using one's hands.

    Come up, cross, go back down, turn the racquet over and tie a knot.

    Don't tie the knot too tight.

    thanks a bunch for the article... I haven't used a dampener in months, but I'm tempted to try out the band method.

    Hehehe yeah... small pix, but also BLUE BACKGROUND + BLUE HANDS + BLUE RUBBER BAND... they really don't want you seeing that huh?!

    BTW, I thought dampening has no effect on shcok to the arm. I thought it merely muted the sound of the strings after hitting a ball.

    I'd say dampeners have a big effect on returns. The dampeners increase string tension. The increased tension keeps the balls in play better as opposed to hitting longer from looser strings.
