    I'll give a review as soon as possible.

    But what i've noticed is: The frame size IS SMALLER than my Arcsaber10. Both ways! Vertical AND horizontal! :-S
    Don't have a comparison possibility with z-slash, but it seem to be identically smaller than other rackets. Well, anyways. We will see how much this smaller head matters.
    It's not much shorter, but it seem to be that wide as other usual isometric rackets.

    Its finish looks great, btw
    looking forward to your review on the racket

    Is that 1 of the contributory factor for increase in price of Victor racquets?
    Not sure bout other countries... but prices of Victor raquets in Malaysia went up like sky rocket. For instance, year 2011 MX80 was around RM4xx(around $150); then this year 2012 went up to almost rm600(almost $200)

    But weird, if Victor is to produce their racquets in China I suppose their cost should decrease thus prices should be remain... AH! confused...

    I'm looking forward to getting a LYD for review although sadly the first batch into Europe are sold out so now I have to wait for the next shipment.

    I'll be testing Meteor 70 and Meteor 60 very soon and writing reviews on these within the next few weeks.

    Is there any LYD in M'sia yet? I thought Victor only raise 15% of its price?

    I thought this racket was actually good value. It is a really nice racket as well.

    changing manufacturing from taiwan to china should have minimal impact in cost of racquet (ignoring cost of relocation).

    For people in the Uk
    Central Sports is selling the Victor Bravesword Lee Yong Dae for 100
    http://www.centralsports.co.uk/shop....&product=12231

    I would also think twice before ordering it from Central Sports after an incident was experienced to someone on this forum with their Victor racket and Central Sports.

    What do you mean with "incident"?

    Had already a training-session with my BS LYD. No serious match. But the first impression is satisfying.
    The bp of 295mm (with string and overgrip) seem to perfectly for me, but next time I have to grip it with 50% overlap due the grip size S2. This probably will take some mm bp ;-(
    Whatever, it cuts quite nice through the air. I think it's a little bit faster than my Arc10. I also had no problems with the smaller head size - didn't miss hit that much. And what I really like is the feeling of the racket. Maybe the string (VS850) matters a lot.

    Whatever. 1 hour is not enough to write more about it. I just let you know what I'm thinking of this racket as soon as possible. But my first impression was nice.

    Thanks for sharing. Nice to know then...

    Btw: When I've received my racket, I've had it in the 1 racket bag. Unforunately the racket went behind my back and I didn't notice that when I was sitting down. Therefore I lied against the chair and at the same time against the racket
    That means I've bend the racket a little bit =/ Does this matter to a racket? The chair behind me wasn't "even". So I think that wasn't very "healthy" On the other side, a racket should stand a lot?

    Can anyone direct me where I can get a trusty retailer to ship internationally...

    Directly to Australia to be exact..

    LYD looks good and I could like the BS series.

    U can try Chris e-link from Singapore

    No tax, aust custom duty free threshold is aud1000. A long as the racquet below aud1000 u are not subject to any tax.

    Lucas Yao at the Victor shop in Clarendon St, South Melbourne has the entire Victor range.

    Sticker prices are out there, but you can usually haggle him down to within $20 of international prices.

    Otherwise, you can't go wrong with RKEP Eric in Taiwan, or Chris Aw in Singapore.
