    Just a quick question. Is it possible to retrieve a normal head look after restringing this racket? thanks

    It would change a bit but I wouldn't count on it too much. If your paying <$30, i would just pick it up and take some chances lol.

    Croatia?

    Might be one of Goran Ivanisevic's old frames... personally modified by him! :lol:

    I'm pretty familiar with these frames; I'm embarrassed to say I've modified a few when having a bad day. :oops: I am guessing there is a stress crack on the side(s) of the frame; otherwise it was strung very, very badly.

    I got one deformed Head PT690 (and one good one :) ). After cutting strings the shape is back, but after stringing deformation is back.

    Save your money unless you are constructing a "How Not to String a Racquet" exhibit.

    If you do get it, report its playability. Who knows, we might get a nice suprise.
