Hi everyone,

Yesterday, I bought two Babolat Pure Storm. One is 68.5 cm (normal length) and the second one is "only" 68.3 cm.

The first one is strung with Big Banger at 23kg but the second one is strung at 24 kg for the mains and 22 kg for the crosses with Pacific Force.

Can this higher tension in the mains be the cause of the "shortness" of my second Storm ???

Will my racquet be permanently deformed or can I fix it with a new string job ?

Nothing to fix really. Every racquet goes through some type of deformation when strung. Type of string and tension will vary the changes.

0.2 cm is nothing to worry about.
