i think most dampeners are similar and do a decent job. The rubber band (roddick uses) does a really good job, but for me the best by far and I dont know why except it seems to make the right sound i like when the ball hits the strings is the babolat with the whole in it. A lot of men on the tour use them inc Nadal, Monfils, Gasquet, Davydenko etc etc

Dampeners don't really do anything. the Vibrations are still there you just don't hear them anymore. I think that YOU Lose feel of the ball when one is used. I also think that Dampeners hide bad racquets because of the loss of feel.

Here is an example of why I use them. I don't play with Dampeners, but One of my racquets has something loose in it. I use the Dampeners to stop the sound but Now i have to put Them on all my racquets. that's how I make the racquets feel the same. This is my only reason for using Dampeners.
So its basically a matter of sound and habit.
And Feel.

Dampeners really take the "feel" out of the racquet if they work, at all. If you want a racquet to be forgiving to your wrists and elbows, then I'd suggest getting one that has a flexible neck. The Fischer 98 Magnetic Pro is an excellent racquet for this. Good balance, good weight, flexibility with power and one of the best "feel" in a racquet that is as forgiving as the Fischer.
Usually higher end(cost) racquets are flexible.

Relating to the post abovce: Lets have an example, shall we. Babolat Pure Drive GT is a higher end (cost) racquet and it is one of the stiffest racquets ever made.

Relating to vibration dampeners: I like to use the happy face one and an ocasional rubberband just tied to the strings. The dampener sometimes changes the balance of the racquet, if you have a heavy dampener in there.
