Pro Staff 85 reissue from TW

Hi, I'm new here and I have a question for the Wilson addicted.

Last week I bought a Wilson Pro Staff 85 reissue from TW (TW-Europe actually, since I live in Italy). The specs on the website say it should have the BLX golden butt cap, but mine came with a black butt cap with the silver "W" (and a little "CHINA" sticker). Weight is 348 grams unstrung.

Does anyone know anything about those new PS 85 and this specific issue? I am just curious about it.
Thank you!

Thank you Byakuya, I didn't see the photos, my fault (I had only read the description "Please note this racquet now comes with a gold BLX butt cap rather than the traditional Wilson white and red butt cap. Racquet does not come with a racquet cover."). Today I'm gonna have it strung and I'll give her a try :).

The buttcap has changed since they were first brought back. Mine (from 2011) have the gold BLX buttcap described, but a friend of mine bought a pair earlier this year which have the newer silver-on-black buttcap you got.

I would like to change a Blx butt cap and replace it by the former White and red wilson one. Do you think that will be possible?
