They are all over the place. The Rubber Band has to be the least...others vary quite a bit. Just take a few over to the local post office and drop them on the digital postal scale
since it will be close to your handle. you wont feel anything at all.
You can certainly feel the difference in swingweight when adding one.
you know the first dampener, I feel sacred putting it on my strings because you really need to push them apart. And i dont wanna break my BIPHASE
IS IT OK?
Adding weight in most cases increases SW...
I heard somewhere on this board that the Babolat dampeners that Ljubo and Nadal use weigh somewhere around 2-3grams.
I weighed two of my dampeners on a laboratory scale for accuracy. A Wilson Profeel (the "W") weighed 2.57 grams = 0.09 oz.
A Gamma Shockbuster "Worm" weighed 3.21 grams = 0.11 oz.
I saw that a Technifibre Vibra Clip is advertised as 2 grams.
I seriously doubt that anyone could feel the weight of one of these. For example, take an 11 oz racquet. Adding 0.1 oz is adding 0.9%, i.e. less than 1%. And it's added pretty close to the balance point of the racquet, so it's not going to change the balance.
Changing to a thicker or thinner overgrip would have a much more noticeable difference, especially since it's at the handle.
Well, I can. So, shoot me.
Well, who am I to say it's all in your head. Maybe you're just a sensitive guy.
First of all, it should be "you're high" or "you are high". Second, maybe, some people are more sensitive than others, without getting high. For example:
ROTFLMAO!!!!! Classic Ripper!!!
lol ripper is on an owning streak...
anyone know the weight of the yonex dampeners? just wondering, lol
On the computer.. most young folks would only type "ur". Gotta love that shorthand of IMs and Text messages.
fine, you're high...but you are still a ho mo with a small penis...
Not what your mom thought about me last time I saw her.
ROTFLMAO!!! Funniest thing I've heard on here for a while...love it, Ripper...
I can feel the difference, too! Aside from that, the vibration of the strings feels completely different without one! No, it doesn't vibrate my handle, but it feels so different! I guess I'm a sensitive gal
SteveI, Actually most young people, for "you are" or "you're" would type u r and type ur for "your" which is completely different. People don't type ru for are you do they? I type words out :shock:
You people that say you can feel the weight of a small wilson w logo dampener, or head dampener logo are thinking a little bit too much... LOL
thats right, she is the one who told me you had a small penis, she just happen to stumble across you packing your boys hole with your little pecker...
this is really disgusting... do you talk like this around your mates?
sometimes, but i am not about to be pushed around by some 15 year old jerk off on this board...
a rubber band only weighs about 1.1 grams. [rubber band #64]
So, how does this work? We keep going until someone gets bored and surrenders? Then, the other one is declared the winner? Ok, then, you win, I have a small penis, I'm gay and whatever else you would like to add. You can ask the moderators for your prize, when they wake up.
fine, i give too...its all good, no hard feelings
