Review on Amazon
I am a 5.0 tennis player and I tried every one of the vibration dampeners made by ADV. One thing that sets these dampeners apart from others is that they are grooved so that it fits flush on the last cross string(snaps in place). By having this groove, the dampeners will not fall off the racket like others that I have tried. Once in place, they will not move until you physically take them out! Big plus!
Out of the three dampeners, 2,4 and 6 string, I liked the 4 initially but moved to the 6. I get a very soft response and maximum vibration absorption when I hit the ball. Putting on the dampener for the first time takes a minute, but once you do it is no problem and easy to do. Tip on putting on. The dampener has inscribed on it in the middle ADV, as long as the ADV is upright then you have put it on correctly.
My racket is: The Babolat Pure Strike 16x19 98sq.in. String that I use is Volkl Cyclone 18 gauge strung at 48lbs on constant speed pull stringer.
My advice to you tennis aficionados is to give them a try and maybe down the road ADV will allow you to purchase a three pack of the dampeners that you prefer as well as the three pack of 2,4 and6.

Although no tennis string dampener will erase all vibrations, the ADV dampener does better than any I have previously used. First, it locks into place so there is never a risk of it coming off in the middle of a match. 2nd, its unique design allows it to grip strings tightly enough to handle much of the vibration. Not to mention it is attractive. Can't ask for much more than that, can you?

So far, it's not even close. These actually cover all the strings unlike most dampeners. They have a solid lock on the top strings as well. Design that fits all rackets. I've had a few different types, and these are my favorite.
Frequently asked questions
Will they help me play longer?
These dampeners will reduce harmful shock to your wrist, elbow and shoulder helping to prevent injury and reduce the wear/tear to your body over the course of many matches.
What exactly is "feel"?
The more "feel" you have, the more crispness there is to each shot. We did a lot of testing and surveying - many players didn't want too much dampening and wanted some more of the natural crisp, ping sound and feel. So we decided to give everyone the option to choose what sensation they prefer between dampening/muting and feel/crispness. The Touch dampeners will give more vibration than the Sorb or Max Sorb. I hope this helps!
Which type of dampener should I choose?
There are no cut-and-dry rules, it all depends on your playing style. ADV lets you to test/discover levels of absorption you might not have otherwise experienced. We'd recommend trying each one and see which works best with your racquets and strings. Message us here on Amazon for help - we'd love to help find your perfect feel!
Although there are really no cut and dry rules for which dampeners work best for which racquets, strings types/tensions, and string patterns - we did design each dampener with specific rackets and strings in mind.
Smaller racquets and head-sizes tend to produce more vibration throughout the string bed and frame - because of that, the larger dampeners (Max Sorb & Sorb) tend to be useful in reducing the higher levels of vibration. The Touch dampener works well with larger head-sizes as there isn’t as much vibration to dampen.
Stiffer racquets tend to produce more vibration throughout the frame - so again, because of that, the larger dampeners (Max Sorb & Sorb) tend to be useful in reducing the higher levels of vibration. More flexible racquets are generally softer/duller, so using the Touch dampener will help prevent too much loss of feel.
Strings and string patterns:
Through our tests, we found that string type and gauge didn’t impact vibration too much - but the string pattern did. The tighter the string pattern (the gaps between strings are smaller), the more vibration is produced - so using Max Sorb and Sorb can help reduce the larger amount of vibration. The more open the string pattern (the gaps between strings are larger), the more shock is already absorbed. In this case, the Touch dampener would work well to maximize feel without the “ping” noise.
Generally, the tighter the string tension, the more shock is produced. In this case, using either Max Sorb or Sorb would definitely help. Racquets strung a bit looser can benefit from Touch which will maximize feel without the “ping” noise.
We recommend that you try each dampener with all your racquets at different strings and tensions. Racquet feel is a very personal thing and we hope that our dampeners enable you to find the perfect feel. Hope this helped and please let us know if you have anymore questions.
What's the dampener made of?
It's made of poly-silicone materials. We combined different silicone densities to each type of dampener. The denser the silicone composite, the crisper the feel - while less dense silicone composites have a greater dampening effect but are designed to not lose the feel of the ball. We tested many different combinations of densities and are ultra-confident that we’ve served up ideal mixes.
