    I posted photos of the LYD Bravesword on this forum somewhere. They were kinda 'accidentally' put up on their facebook page and I pinched them before they took them off. Anyone remember where they are? :eek:

    Are they going to increase the price of all new rackets or of all available and newer rackets?
    And from which date on?
    Any sources?

    Yeah, the LYD is still a bit 'soft' looking for my likings. It should look like this...

    A bit of BS10-esque grey/silver at the top of the frame, and we're done!:p:p

    Okay, had a mess around, regripped with RKEP Ultimate, all strung with VS850@25 lbs. Some surprises in there -

    BS10 - BP297 / 95g
    BG168 - BP290 / 96g
    SW310 - BP303 / 91g(!)

    Interesting points-

    1) SW310 looks awesome, and note, it's a really nice blue-grey colour, not bright aqua like it looks like on my screen at least. Accents are burnt orange. I'm most excited about trying this one out of the bunch.
    2) BS168 is essentially a regular Bravesword but with a couple of cost cutting measures, such as no hologram graphics, and no Shockless grommets. Feels stiffer than the BS10 just swinging it around, but we'll see.
    3) BS10 good news! The holographic graphics now has a clearcoat over it! I like the new SWORD font on the head, but it now doesn't match the lettering on the shaft, which is a bit weird. Still, something about the BS10 says 'I mean business'.

    Should also note that on the Victor website, it states that the 168 is head heavier than the 10 and the same stiffness, whereas in fact it's not as head heavy, and in the hand at least feels stiffer. Even if it is the same stiffness it will probably play stiffer because of the lower balance point.

    This is going to be one interesting session tomorrow night! Can't wait!! :D
