    I had spoken to a retailer last week, he has hinted me the BS9 is coming back. I would think this would likely be true. It will be interesting to see if the N version share the same spec as the old colour.

    Well, he did link to victors website so you won't find a better source than that.

    Thanks for making the thread ferrerkiko! I've been looking for a picture of the racquet for a few days now.

    I don't think there's a need for it tbh. It's just a repaint.

    I have one in my bag at the moment. I've spent some time with it and it's good. I'll be writing my review very soon. A number of players already wish to order this racket so it's attracting attention.

    Whilst i have no idea why it's been re-introduced, especially as Victor are winding down Bravesword production, it's been a welcome racket to keep in my bag.

    I have a chance to quick test a pair of the 09N 3 weeks ago and I am not sure it is "just a repaint" as I hope it to be. I have played with the old 09 for a long time, until my younger daughter starts to sport my BS09s and play more seriously and competitively.

    I didn't spend a whole lot of time on the 09N but it is very apparent that it is quite a bit head heavier then the old 09. Both demo racquets that I tried are very consistence in net weight and head weight. I did pull out the digital scale after, the 09N is a full gram heavier on the head compare to the old 09s that I have (which I have 4 of them). But then this could be the famous Victor manufacturing variance issue that we have faced all along; maybe Paul can confirm it somehow if the can get a hold of an old 09.

    I will be getting the new 09N in a few weeks for a friend who has been eager to compare it to the 5-6 original BRS 09s he currently owns. I am looking forward to his comparison and will try to weigh (wet weight) them all. Hopefully with the weight measurements will shed light to whether it may or may not be the "victor manufacturing variance"

    Looking forward to your review Paul.

    I know something has to be different even when Victor intended for a reprint. ;)
