Can anyone sell me a luxilon purple ring dampener?
C'mon guys, that IS THE IDEA. it's like $.39!!!
Hey, dlw, I sent you an email about the shock faces.
I guess i'm interested in the yin yang if it's still available.
I'd like to purchase either a black Wilson W dampener (the old version) or the Gamma tri damp (that triangle looking one DLW posted). Or, I can offer... something in return (I don't know what)
best dampener ever
Anyone have the smiley/sad face dampeners for sale?
You can find some on the bay
Lol! Me too... like the ones that blink.
Anyone have those old, black, square-ish Dunlop dampeners, the rubber ones that have a hinge on the top and clasp near the bottom with a piece of plastic? If they're unbroken, I'll trade you 9 various ones (Wilson, Prince, Dunlop and Gamma), plus cash! email@example.com
I have some #64 rubberbands... anybody want one?
You guys do know the word is "damper", right? NOT "dampener"?
Actually... it's not.
For these tennis doodads... the correct term is dampener.
Technically speaking, the engineering term of what's going on is called "damping." They could call their product a gollywhopper, and it would still be damping the vibrations (not dampening). I learned this the hard way, when I told one of my professors (who specializes in acoustics) that I was interested in sound dampening. He corrected me, rather sternly, and said "it's damping, not dampening."
You are right about that.
Sorry, Bud. I know that the constant misuse of the word "dampener" has led it to be applied colloquially to vibration dampers, but the correct word is "damper". My guess is that TW calls it that just because they know most people refer to it that way. It's nice to be right occasionally... (Oh, and I don't use one, by the way. A damper, that is. The vibration is part of the feel of the racquet...)
Oh. Alright. Anyone on the boards have some for sale/trade though?
Perhaps... but the accepted term for these devices is now dampener. They are listed as dampeners on every site that sells tennis equipment.

— damp·en·er \-nər\ noun
Yeah, well, people spell night "nite", and that's used all over the place as well. But it's still incorrect. Frequency of usage doesn't make it right.
So, basically you're simply not willing to admit that you're incorrect.
