    Germany will have some BS LYD's in stock in March 2012. But I don't know how limited they will be.

    They will be "DEL"-coded.
    Specifications out from the catalogue:
    abt. 92 g (Weight)
    G2
    HH O+OOO HL
    S o+ooo F
    incl. Set VS850 and fullsize ihermobag
    159.00 € (catalogue price)

    But I still don't know if the Germany coded BS LYD is 3U or 4U. I've heard they declare the weight of the racket AND string? :confused:
    Even Victor International (Germany) didn't answer my question. They just told me "yes, it's possible that there differences between the european and asian rackets):eek: - kinda unprofessional, imho.

    well, string weight is only around 3-3.5g. so it should be a 3u.

    maklike always says that if you going to pick up a BS. Make sure it is a 3U even if you are use to 4u rackets.

    i think there will be more later. but for the first batch, only 4. i think the guy probably carried the 4 with him on the airplane while the rest will come via boat.

    I already know this site. But the addition "3U" is new! For sure! :D But thanks! ^^
    I hope it's not a misinformation. Because a 4U would really s*ck... :p

    Well then. My preorder will be placed this week for sure :)

    Thanks for the link. Are you the shop owner of this website? :)

    I can confirm that G2 is a little bit too small. But I think this doesn't matter because the grips are customizable thanks to grips, which are available in different thickness?

    I´m only a badminton addict, and have an asian name, meanwhile the owner of the shop has a strange name http://www.badminton-shop-jena.de/catalog/impressum.php (for me, not sure Jauk is a european last name or not, but Steffi is sure a lady)

    Me G2 is suited, but for the most big tall people in my club it is very small, they always use original grip plus another thicker grip (tennis grip).

    Oh, thanks! I have to ask. I'm waiting for a response now. I'll let you know that.
    G3 would be better I think.

    Actually I have an Arcsaber10 with G4 (which is like Victor's G3) with a 0.70mm Overgrip. And it matches very well to my hand.

    btw: I'm asian too:p

    Just picked up a LYD today, it's a beauty but have to settle for a 4U instead of my regular 3U as with all other Victors that I had. At 4U it's already 87.8g dry, the 3U weighs 90g. I've gotten used to 87~88g all along, thus dare not take up the 3U... But from Victor Sports Taiwan site => 3U(85~89.9g) / 4U(80~84.9g) :confused:

    did you weigh with or without the plastic wrap on the handle?

    that plastic wrap weighs nearly 2grams!

    Yes, it was weighed with the handle wrap. But it is from the same shop, same weighing machine and same with handle wraps for all my past 3U Victors, they weighed 87~89g dry. I always make it a point to measure new purchases so that I know I'll be using similar weighted rackets.

    Btw, heard from the shop's boss, that there was another guy just bought his LYD last 2 days also had similar experience, also ended up choosing a 4U over his regular 3U because of LYD's heavier 3U weight. Perhaps if that bro happens to read this thread too could share his views.

    since the wrap is around 2g, then your previous 3U are also on-spec, leaning to the lighter end of the range.

    since this is a LYD specific racket, it could be the case that it was designed to be at the higher end of the range.

    I've found that the vast majority of my Victors have been in the 85-87g gross weight, with a SW3150 being the exception at 89g. They've all been TW coded, but from different batches and/or factories as denoted by the letter designation after the TW.

    It almost seems like Victor aims for 85g, and then QC's them into 3U or 4U.

    85g is pretty much the sweetspot for me for most designs :)
