Think I made a racquet mistake!

So I went with my father to buy an early birthday present from the local sports equipment store last night. Up until now I've been using a Prince stick with a pretty large head size (103 sq in) so wanted to find something similar.

The guy showed me a $200 Head racquet with a large head size like I'm accustomed to, so my Dad basically pressured me just to take it on the spot without any research because he was buying and won't get a chance to go back before my birthday. I reluctantly obliged thinking that the price seemed mid-range and the head size was good for me. We got to the front desk and it was on sale for $99, so we thought it was a steal.

When I got home I did some research and can barely find it anywhere, let alone on the Head website, but where I did see it, the price was nowhere near $200. Now I'm thinking it's a cheap recreational racquet and regretting the purchase. I wish I'd just gone with something safe like a Babolat Pure Drive.

Does anyone know anything about it? It's called the Head Nano Ti. Sonic . Is there any chance it's a re-badged model with a different name in the American market?

Here it is:

Re: Think I made a racquet mistake!

Can't your return it? Where I bought my Pure Drive I had like 5 days to do so.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.
