Product Profile: Wilson Emotisorb Vibration Dampener

by: Richard Pagliaro September 27, 2012

MSRP: $4.00

Facts: No need to text your tennis partner—or opponent—your feelings before the match; let your racquet do the talking. The Emotisorb expresses your emotion on your strings. The smiley face emoticon, created by a Carnegie Mellon computer scientist, celebrated its 30th birthday on September 21st, and Wilson has a varied selection of Emotisorb dampeners, including the familiar smiley face, as well as winking, angry (bright red), puzzled,  and cool (sporting sunglasses) emotisorbs.

Impressions: Whether you feel stress or bliss on court, it’s comforting to know there’s an emotisorb to convey your emotions. Staring at a racquet face with an embedded emotisorb can bring a smile to the face of even the most intense competitor. The dampeners are ideal for juniors, doubles partners and chronic texters. Imagine the emotisorb possibilities if master mischief maker Fabrice Santoro faces renegade John McEnroe on the senior circuit?
