I just noticed it says rubber band #63, preferred by Agassi.  Does he really use rubber bands for dampers?

Yes, Agassi does use rubberbands, so does Roddick.  I think the 64 is the rubberband size.

Rubberbands do the job cheaply.  They're my dampener of choice.  I skip #3 and tie twice, by the way.

Yes they are.  They also stay on much more securely.  I got tired of loosing all my Prince P.  For the price of a package of 3 P dampers, I can get 3 bags of 300 rubberbands ;)

I tried it today but I had the thin rubber bands and they kept popping off. I'm gonna have 2 go buy some of the longer, thicker ones and then try it again.
