Is dampener really useful considering all the improvement that had happened in the racquet technology that happened?
I was following the pro in US open to see what the pro do and found some pro use and some doesn't use dampener.
It's all personal preference. I prefer to use a dampener, but I know plenty of people who don't. If you've been playing 6 years and surviving without one, I'd say you are okay.
