Nadals Shock Dampner

Well the question is how is Nadals shock dampner different to mine as i bought the one whichhe uses as i have his racket but with his he has like a white thing in the middle of it ?
Also is it ok if the dampner stretches the strings to the side when it is in place ?

Thanks

the white thing is a little insert you can put into the middle of the babolat dampeners, though i dont know where you get them from, as they dont sell them with the dampeners. and its natural for the strings to stretch when a dampener is put in.

Re: Nadals Shock Dampner

Why does he use the insert then ? Is it to any benefit ?

The white insert comes with the dampner. The dampners are sold as pair, but they give you only one insert per pair. It is true that it contains small stell balls in it. By the way that dampner is a complete waste of time. It comes of in 5th minute whenever I play with it.
