The stringbed got tighter as the crosses were applied. I also put on a white overgrip tape on top of the nice leather underneath and she looks good to go. I'm really looking forward to putting her through the paces.
For a novelty item (cold war era racquet), I'd guess it could possibly fetch $30-$40 here in the US??
I know some people who still playing with these racquets, it's not easy but if you have good old-school technique you will like it. Give it a try.
