    Sorry I don't have any pics, but will have some soon. I have this 85 in a 4 3/8 with a white buttcap JUQ. However, there is no red primer underneath the paint, instead its black. The racket appears as if it used to be bumperless, until the previous owner installed a head guard in which he had to cut off the ends just so it will fit. But then the throat grommets are not 3 individual sets, its a one piece. The font is the same as the ones you typically see on other SV's (somewhat old fashion rounded letters). The finish to it is not a matte texture either, but instead has a slight shine.

    Hitting with it feels VERY similar to my other SV, but much more powerful at the same tension. I'm guessing it might be the 65-70 lbs range one. Its very solid and about the same flex as my other SV.

    Can someone please confirm whether its a SV or not?

    Actually I'm looking to trade it for a K90 4 3/8 US if anyone is interested.

    Look like a fake to me, possibly a paintjob done on a Wilson Ultra 2.
