    To me, like a few others, vibration dampeners really do raise string tension on a racket.

    However, if strung at low tensions, w/o a dampener, I hit many shots long, and i put a dampener on, and everythings ok.

    So i really dont know anymore, im really trying to stop using those dumb things.

    why do you call them dumb? by the way, dampeners not only as you say tighten the strings, but literally dampen the vibrations by absorbing the shock of the shot.

    and maybe its just a mental thing for you. maybe you are dumb?

    IMHO vibration dampers is just to damp out the string noise. I don't really see a difference regarding shock.

    i was trying a worm out today and it really did dampen a signficant amount of shock from the vibration of the racket... without it i felt the vibration going up my arm... just my observation... i'm not arguing...
