Hey all. I was wondering what would be the best dampener for a babolat pure storm? Right now i have the pete sampras damp. I was leaning towards a rubber band or RVS. I just want to know what would be the best. Thanks! :)

Why do you not like the sampras damner.?? I heard that Gamma ones are pretty good.:-D

Well it's been about 4 months since i've hit with my new storm racket because of the weather.:evil: I've only hit once with it for a short period of time. I think i felt a lot of shock going into my arm and my racket would shake after the ball being struck,(or possibly by my follow through or wrong tension.) Just not sure. And thanks.

Well you can try a rubberband dampener, that's what I use. The gamma shockbusters are pretty good too. Their the worm looking ones.

Anyways if you racquet shakes to much, I think it doesn't have alot of stability. If you want try adding lead tape to the 3 & 9 position to add stability to the racquet.

Try the RVS, works for me. There are some possible downsides though, do a search and you'll find the links.

I would not use the rvs, my friend had one and it moves up into the strings after 2 hits which defeats its purpose of dampening the frame. It works fine as a normal dampener though!

I'm just wondering, can you really tell the difference between damps? I've used the Head one that comes with the fxp's, the Wilson W, a babolat dampener, and the sampras O's. I can't tell the difference. Can you really tell the difference? I just thought it was interesting if you could.
