So is this an upgrade or down grade?

Hard to say right now. Will have to wait and see when the kits come out. Both companies are based out of Australia and Paladin is relatively new. With X-Blades, some kits they hit the mark on and others not so much. You really got a mixed bag. The only team that has revealed their new kits are the Seattle Seawolves.

They should have went with a new logo, not just a recolor.
