    i think those shock absorbers are the same as the ones they were selling before. all they did was change the coloring on it.

    Rubber Bands or Neoprene Grommets do the job just fine as vibration dampeners

    they should be available, if not soon. i think i've seen them at sport chalet so you might just have to look around locally.

    They are a made of a harder material than the previous ones. The older Head Logo Dampeners are quite soft.




    Yes. I agree.. but the Babolat Custom Dampeners are an improvement over the Pete O-ring Dampeners, IMO. Still nothing beats the feel of a rubber-band tied nice and snug.

    I think the head shock absorber are too hard. I go for rubber band or something soft
