    I notice Wilson offers two string dampeners -

    the nTrap

    and the Shock Trap

    They both look pretty much the same in the way they fit across the middle six strings...so does anyone know what the difference between these two dampeners are??

    Im pretty sure they are for people who want to match their accessories.
    Ex: Someone with an nCode raquet might want the nTrap dampener because it matches.

    Nope no difference exept possibly weight. I've hears the ntrap is a little heavier but surely not enough to effect play.

    actually..there IS a difference.

    the ntrap covers 6 mains while the shock trap covers 8. the ntrap is a bit rounder and beefier while the shock trap is a little thinner. im guessing weight is comparable.

    Good spotting, I didn't even notice that. I suppose 8 strings damped will give a greater feeling of dampening than just 6, which in turn will provide more dampening than a standard 2 string dampener. I've tried the 8 string version and decided that I prefer my racquet without one altogether.
