frequently asked questions
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. Or, message us for help- we'd love to help find your perfect feel! Here are some more specifics in case it helps:
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.
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.
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.
The dampeners are 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.
