    This thread = a ridiculous amount of fuss over nothing!

    They're just silicone 'O' rings.

    Babolat do loads of these.

    Rabbit, I've literally emailed you through TW's host 5-6 times about those. Please email me at mweller23@comcast.net

    I'd love it if you could send as many as you see fit to me in an envelope--I'd pay for both the dampeners themselves and postage (I'm in the Chicago area). Thanks very much.

    Great advertising, considering the illegal placement of the dampener haha

    OK....let's do a little bud nipping.....

    I have tentatively sold 8 for $50.00

    Mdubb23 has set the price, $7.00/ea or best offer.

    23 - 8 = 15

    I will sell 7 more and then they go back in the vault.

    Offers begin, auction closes Sunday at 6:00 PM Sunday.

    Payment via paypal

    Anything not firmed up is freed up.

    :)

    i had 3, and now have none. :(

    When they fly off through the fence into mulch/pine needles/grass... good luck finding that sh*t. THEY CAN FLY IN ANY DIRECTION!

    I cried each time i lost one.

    Couldn't agree more.

    When I used to use Dampeners I could not find them when they shanked of my racquet, Somehow the little ***** manage to fly anywhere and to any distance.

    This is a pain in my ass*hole, I now use *64 Rubber Bands, Yeh son!

    True story. Agassi was so sick and tired of those god damn rubberbands that he decided to find some of my leftovers while Roger amused himself blasting some balls

    What a good place to lose that dampener. Really good place. You gotta be very happy. Does Agassi found it, because i will go to Dubai to take it.

    He found it and he texted me saying:
    'Hey Pistol what's up? Today i was asking an arab how many camels is Steffi worth and the strangest thing happened... He saw that pink luxilon dampener in my racquet and he said Steffi is worth 30 camels but the dampener is worth 40 camels. I've made my day right there pal. You can have Steffi now!'

    Lol i also have about 20 or so of those. They used to come free inside the big banger packs

    They start of as circles but turn into ovals if you leave them in for a long time
