Restringing will stop the flop as it`s the old elastic inside that has failed and it is now held in place by the cotton outer. (Take a peek inside, you`ll see what I mean, it won`t do any harm) Of course if you don`t want to tackle restringing just twist the torso around at the waist a couple of times, or even twist a limb around a bit. Everything will tighten up. You won`t get the elasticity but the body will feel tighter.
Restringing really isn`t that hard and you can`t go wrong, it`s just down to personal choice whether or not you can live with knowing it`s not original Mego elastic in there. Otherwise just be patient and as your collection expands and you buy a couple of job lots, pick the best of it out, swap a head here and there onto a good body and you`ll be happy.
