ShockShield is useful if you want to add weight to the handle, damp out some of the feedback and don't mind slightly increased thickness.

Good to have different options really, but I guess everyone's looking for slightly different things.
This is a perfect analysis of the Shock Shield.

I love it but have not been able to use it on my 200s as they're already heavy. Had to use the Comfort Hybrid instead.

Just bought a Pure Storm GT and the Shock Shield with OG will work perfectly adding about 0.5 to 0.6 oz together. Leaves plenty of room to customize further with lead in the head or under the handle before hitting my weight limit.
Only on Talk Tennis can you find people who believe
that 10 feet of lead tape has no effect on a frame...
