    Hi all, can you please verify if my Victor BraveSword 09 is real or not? I just received it from BadmintonShopOnline and I understand that they're a legit vendor, however the design of the BS09 that I have is completely different from the photos that I've seen online:

    (see attached for photos)
    - instead of "Brave Sword" at 5 o'clock, there's only "Sword";
    - the print design at 12 o'clock is different - there's different lines and no "Square Head Shape";
    - there's no flex guide (ie. "Flexible -----|----- Stiff") on the shaft near the cone, only the engraved specs on the cone;
    - balance is mid, but I read somewhere that it was supposed to be slightly HL;
    - butt cap is blue (I understand this is true for "newer" model Victor rackets);

    Thanks in advance...

    I was wondering if they did the same to the SW35 as well, because my 1 month old SW35 says Aerodynamic where it said Superwaves on other models and it doesnt say square head shape on the top of the racket
