Dampeners are only for string vibration and have zero effect on the comfort of the racquet.

Cortex and other shaft/handle technologies are about reducing 'bad vibrations' being transmitted from hoop to hand.

To get rid of cortex all they would have to do is reduce the stiffness to around 65, but that would not be a stiff Babolat.
