rubber band tied a bit differently
i tie it on the normal way, but instead of leaving the loops, i tuck the loops in on the backside so theyre not sticking out, i dont like how that looks
when its tucked in it looks like a solid mass of rubber,
i used to use no dampener because i liked the extra feel, but i started using a lighter racket and it began to hurt my wrist, the lighter racket and the switch when i went from graphite shafted golf clubs that were perimeter weighted to forged steel shafted clubs
side note, i think the physics thing (a 2g dampener on a 300g racket striking a 60g ball) needs a citation, because i can definately feel a difference when i use a rubber band.
