The HEAD® Smartsorb vibration dampener is a rubber elastomer compound in a wide tapered shape that absorbs more vibration than many other types of racket dampeners. It gives you more control after impact, helping reduce fatigue and injury.

This dampener is nice for players who haven't yet mastered the sweet spot, as it will dampen your shots almost all over the racquet. Traditional dampeners only help when you hit in exactly the right spot, which isn't often the case for newer players. For dampening purposes, I found this product to be effective.On the unfortunate side, they do not seem to last long. A poorly aimed shot (which, again, is common in the recreational player base that this product is likely targeting) can pop the plastic hook from one end of the dampener. For [$], it's pretty irritating to have these things break in under a month. Granted, my wife uses these and has only broken one. For me, they were breaking pretty much every 2-3 weeks (I play every day).
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
