We are all waiting for your review,mate.
If you don't mind, please compare it with your NS9900. I myself am a big fan of NS9900, your comparison review with NS9900 might give me an idea, on how does this beast perform.

I don't think anyone was under the allusion that this racket was not going to be huge for Victor.

does this model have any difference between the taiwan coded units and say CN coded units?

I can't wait to get a sample from Victor so that I can review it. From what I've heard it's turning out to be Victors most popular racquet ever.
As I understand it, it's only being offered in grip size 2 which is a smaller grip than usual. However, no doubt players can build the grip a little without too much loss of balance.

Popularity due to the association with 이용대?

You are probably right, however it may turn out to be a classic in its own right. Time will tell.
At the end of the day, the racquet manufacturers are in the business of selling product. All they are doing is copying what has worked many times before and that is using a star to promote a product. There is no difference to any other advertising we see on TV with stars promoting products. At least on this occasion we know they use the brand albeit they have custom made racquets and not the off the shelf ones we can purchase.

Looks very nice. I'll get a chance to test it as soon as my usual shop gets one back (as they're all being demo'ed). The choice I'll have to make is between the BS09, BS LYD and N55II.....and Voltric ZF I hope it's not too stiff, as I'm finally free of shoulder pain and I want it to stay that way!
In the meantime - continue posting yummy pics

OK so I was finally able to play with that beauty tonight... Please keep in mind that i'm injured at my right shoulder, and that i'm not used to the string. I usually play with NS9900/BG65 @11kg.
Here are my first impressions : BS LYD / VS850 @ 11.5kg / AC102EX Overgrip
More powerfull than the NS9900 as expected, clears from back to back are effortless. No vibrations at all, the racket is very quick.
For smashes, the combination of the new string and my injury made this review awkward. I mean i couldn't really be able to know if i correctly hit the shuttle I didn't found my smashes were more powerfull/fast than with the NS9900. My opponents said that it was faster than usual but i didn't have that feeling. I'm such in love with this racket (you'll understand it later) that i want to think that it's the string/my injury/the different head shape.
Net play is outstanding ! the racket is so precise for netshots. For fast play / drives... IT WAS AWESOME. I'm a double player that enjoys to be the front man. My game is made of drive and interceptions. That racket made my opponents sick of badminton. IT IS SO DAMN FAST ! Even if the BS LYD is a little more head heavy than the NS9900 (bp differs by nearly a cm, both rackets with the same overgrip), i found it easier to return drive with the LYD. I'm in love with it.
But was really stunned me more was the defense... I was able to return every single smash to the baseline without any effort. Flat defense were so easy that i changed my gamestyle and lifted every shuttle to be able to counter later... Blocks are awesome too...
My overall thoughts are that there is no huge diffences with a NS9900, but the LYD is simply more awesome everywhere. A bit more powerful, a bit faster, a bit more precise...
Highly recommendable racket !

It seems that BS LYD has taken down NS9900...One of the best rackets Evil Empire has ever produced....

Well. A little more head heavy than NS9900? A little more only?
Well, I don't use a NS9900, but the few times I've tested with it, there was no head heaviness in NS9900 at all. And my BS LYD is definitely head heavy. Not very head heavy, but head heavy. So it must be more than "a little more" head heavier than NS9900
Whatever. I've used it for 2 - 3 hours now. I don't know what to say. But it's really fast, it probably replaces my Arcsaber10 as go to racket.
I think the stiffness and its feeling is kinda similar to Arcsaber10. But it's a lot faster.
When I've said its head is smaller than Arcsaber10's head. It's still valid. But when I've compared it with MX-70, it had the same head size.
Whatever, the smaller head size - compared to Arc10 - wasn't a issue until yet. I think I was getting to used to it very quickly.
Someone here has mentioned that BS LYD is a little bit slower than other rackets from the same series. I can't confirm that. But I really wonder now how fast the other Braveswords could cut through the air, because BS LYD is already really fast
Notice: Its shaft is longer than other rackets. This may disturb some people, or not
My racket: strung with VS850, 10,5kg, 1 overgrip, balance point: 295 ~ 297mm

Get both and let us know how they are compared to each other
I'll post you some pictures this Friday or Saturday how the head comparison to Arc10 looks like.
