    I take a minimalist approach to dampeners. My rationale is that the dampener really doesn't do much of anything besides deaden the sound so it's less of a distraction. It definitely doesn't make your arm feel any better. You also have to consider weight. A typical worm dampener weighs about 4-6 grams. That's like 20 inches of 0.25 inch lead tape, and unlike lead tape, it doesn't increase stability or plow, but it does add to the swingweight! That's a why I like the Tourna Sampras Dampener. It's light, convenient, and does the job. Yes, I lost a few of them because they flew off and I couldn't find them, but they are cheap enough that I keep spares. I tried rubber bands, and they work fine, but the Sampras Dampener is much easier to use because you don't have to tie it.
