    I learn from this forum that Prince's silencer is pretty good, plus it doesn't come off. How is it compared to Babolat's IG?

    Any insight? Thanks!

    I've used the Price NXG silencer, it adds some air resistance to your swing. However, it can even turn the sound of a train ride into a soft "thud." Also, if the Bab's is a rubber tape, it'll crack and harden faster than the Prince Model. Finally, the Bab is twice the price. Pros and Cons. Depends what you like.

    Doesn't work for me. I need ones in an "O" shape that press hard against the strings. maybe on an 18x20 pattern it works.
