I don't know what year or version this is (does anyone know?), but it's the one that was mostly dark maroon with grey at the top and a small bit of white half-way up the head. It's seen it's fair share of work, paint missing in lots of places, even turns the shuttle red on mis-hits, but no cracks or chips, and I thought it felt pretty good. Freshly strung with BG65 @ 25 lbs. A friend wants to trade me it and $100 cash for another racquet I have that I was going to sell anyway. I was thinking about getting a Bravesword 12, but then this came up. Can anyone compare the two rackets?
