    Anna Chakvetadze was playing with one the other day. I think Wilson makes them, do you know where I can get one?

    LOL i was just making fun of this little kid at my tennis club because he had a ying yang dampener. Were friends though so it was only a joke, i have no idea who makes it but i just though it was a funny coincidence. If you want i can steal it from him when hes not looking ;)

    Search google and on the first page someone sells them out of the bowl individually.

    Keep your eyes peeled. I found a US flag from the Bowl O Fun in the leaves when I was digging a ball out from under the fence. :idea:

    I think Wilson did make the ying-yang and other designs as 2-piece pack available for a while. At least I still see some Oh-face & happy-face as 2-piece pack available at local stores (yes, stores exclusively for tennis usually have the whole bowl and let you pick whatever you like from the bowl, and usually the sad-face is the only thing leftover. Obviously you know why).

    Er... somehow I think these dampeners overdamp a bit. I won't use them unless the racquets (usually demo with old string) really vibrate a lot and make too much clanging at ball contact. Anyway, I always keep 1 solid dampener and 1 O-ring / Sampras dampener in my bag just in case (maybe I'll add a rubber band later as well).
