    Hi friends,

    I just bought a Victor Bravesword 10 from Malaysia a couple of weeks back. I bought it for approximately 400RM, and went to re-string at a local badminton shop.

    I need to verify whether it is real or it is an expensive fake :(

    I've took plenty of snapshots of my racquets and posted them here.

    Reasons why I think its a fake when i bought it or swapped during re-stringing!
    1) I can't seem to find a serial number on the shaft.
    2) There is a slight chip of the paint on the top right hand side of the racquet head, perhaps after I clashed it with my friend. But I find the black parts around it weird!

    Any inputs would be beneficial.

    Thank you!!!

    Hi guys,

    I did a quick image search of my bravesword 10, and i realized that the wording is different on the head too. Whereas mine is just SWORD, others are BRAVE SWORD. I need someone to verify if their racquets are different too! Perhaps Victor changed the design of the racquet?

    Need help!!!

    thanks!

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think there are many fake Victor rackets out there. Umm your racket says "SWORD" on it because it is the second generation of BS10's the first generation says "BRAVE SWORD". The BS10 also chips really easily due to the sword frame and from your pictures, the racket seems normal.

    My first gen doesn't or perhaps it's on the handle but I can't check cause of the grip.
