Review by wickedyeti on November 20, 2013
I am comparing this blade to the Kreanga Carbon, Yasaka Synergy, and several intro level paddles I've owned in the past. This is definitely my favorite. I have used it with bryce rubber, bryce fx, and cermet rubber in the past and it's been good but right now I'm using it with Sriver G3 FX on FH and Sriver FX on backhand. With this I'm able to hit very consistently with a bit better feel as compared to the Kreanga Carbon. It is also lighter than the KC but does not get the vibration issues that my Yasaka Synergy or cheaper paddles had. I am approx 1250-1300 rated and I hope to eventually have a solid loop with this. Right now my primarily block, counter-drive, and push based game is very easy to execute with this blade. If you're careful with your paddles then I'd highly recommend putting the money down on a nice paddle. I feel like I've gotten more value out of the rubber that I would have been purchasing anyways.

I'm a returning TT player. Played regularly 15yrs ago, now have been playing about 6 hrs /week for 3 months. When people say this blade only for advance player, i can safely say they dont know what they talking about or it's just too fast (can't control the blade). My game is mostly pushes, blocks, and plays spin game but occasionally counterloop or smash when opportunity arise. All I'm saying is this blade can do short game just good as other blades, not to mention gears for back table speed monster. I beat a friend who usually tough to beat. That really sums it up really.

This blade is sure FAST! I mean it, REALLY FAST. But it can be played down up to the "ALL" level. If you have the control in your own hands and doesn't rely on the control a blade offers, you'll definitely love this blade! You can go Wang Liqin with power packed top spins, or joo se hyuk with thriller chops, fine, you can manage with this blade!! Some says it "chooses" right rubbers to play it well, but NO, it is a variable blade. It can be played from all- - off+++. Put euro rubbers, and you'll get the hell of spin out of it. Put chinese rubbers, and you're ready to make the ball rush in 5th gear, provided you can control it. Got mine previously paired up with hurricane 3 neo nat'l blue sponge (FH) and a donic coppa JO platin (BH), and I dominated many well respected players in our club. Anw, presently I'm fond of using my H-WL !
with H3neoBS (fh) and BTY sapphira (bh), my amultart is currently teamed up with yasaka Xtend HS (BH) and JO platin (FH) (I'm thinking of switching to H3 or Globe national.) If you have the dimes, Go for it!

good blade for direct offensive play, with low dwell time. not for loopers depending on variations in their loops. All in all a good blade but difficult to control. also quality diminishes over a period of time.
 External Review on February 26, 2013
My personal rate:
Speed: 9.6
Control: 8.5

This was my first blade, Fast, decent control, moderate dwell time, pair it with 2.0 or lower for better control

Magic touch with it and simply beautifull.Deadly loop,drive and chop very easy,smash is very speed spining.Tried with bryce rubber,then my game is going up,make me have a skill killer for my training partner.The blade is fantastic.Before,i'm used Kokutaku blutenkirsche and Butterfly Primo vittese,after using the amultart,then i using more the both of blade is very comfortable with good skill.Whatever,the amultart is super Fantastic..!! Thanks Butterfly...-)

Very good blade... my favorite without a doubt... very good for both wings loops.. very fast, a lot of power and superb control.. i found the combination fh T64 and bh Omega II (european) the best, incredible easy to loop and block with both sides.. Definitely worth every single penny...
 External Review on May 18, 2012
The ZLC with the wonderful outer soft wood laying help me much for upholding the ball at which I can feel fully and precisely control of my smashing and spinning line.

The components (core blade, ZLC and outer surface wood) contribute a perfect shock absorbing without any of vibration while maintaining a feeling of not so stiff. The bat itself is fast and good for blocking. It may less a bit all the hitting power while making up with high control is a worth deal.

The downside of this blade is easy to damage because it seems to me that its core is easy to rive and outer wood is flossy soft. However, I ultimately pick this blade and play it with a good care.

This is a great blade, but requires careful rubber selection. I started using it with Butterfly Tenergy 25 FH and Yasaka Razka 9 BH, but found the combination of T25 and this blade too hard to control on the FH. It's not as spinny as it is fast, and that takes getting used to. When I switched BH/FH, I found the R9 just right in terms of looping and control.

I'm used the amultart for two weeks,this blade is great in speed and spin at every my game,but for control i'm not good,because for 3 years i'm play the pingpong is otodidax,maybe i need a special training for controlable this blade,cause i haven't a trainer.On rubber i used Haifu whale 2 for my forehand and LKT torrent gold for backhand...

Seriously fast! I tryed this with Joola Energy x-soft (only 1.8mm) and it was unbelievably quick. Not recommended for beginners!
Review by tratluma on April 20, 2011
I've tried several blades but I was never satisfied the way this blade did. I never thought I would be purchasing a blade of this expense, but I'm telling you, It's worth every single penny. It has every playing fundamentals.. power, control, and speed, the ability to make the ball rampage with control in just a hit with even minimal efforts, excellent in countering loops. The ball will rush to your opponent before he could put his arm down!! it has the capacity making the spin in rage even in hard rubbers like hurricane series of DHS. it produces serious amount of spins.. so chopping as means of tactic defense is a good option. compatible with short or long stroke plays (long strokes may have to adjust a little though.). really a Top quality blade from butterfly.

Review by krishnak on December 3, 2010
One of the best blades that I have ever played with. It has speed when you want it and control when you demand it. It is great for mid to long distance play. My shots have gone from good to awesome. This is definitely a blade that needs the right rubber (soft) and some time when you first start playing with it. Give it about 4-8 weeks and you are going to be a nightmare for the opponents. Good luck!

I have been playing Amultart ZL Carbon since 2008. It is the best blade if compare with Mazunov OFF+ and Sardius. I am happy with this blade!
 External Review on February 18, 2010
Why it is said that this blade is exclusively for advanced players? My own & my students experience is quite contrary... right from intermediate up to very advanced & may be up to any level - this is a great blade - especially with T05... only thing is that one must have taste for what it offers - best for classic all-round offense
 External Review on January 10, 2010
If you're a hard hitter this is the right blade for you!
The best combo I've tried so far is
Fh Xiom Zeta european
Bh Joola Express two

Blocks, drives and counter-loops are a breeze!
It's worth every cent!

Superbe blade! My all time favorite! Excellent control!
 External Review on December 8, 2009
This blade is possibly the best thing out there. Looping with this thing is simply beautiful. Along with looping, close table play from smashing to flicking are outstanding.
Drives and power drives with the Amultart ZLC becomes an art with this blade.
The blade is very fast, but the feel is great. So playing with this blade requires skill.
But overall, this is possibly the best Butterfly blade in my opinion

 External Review on November 6, 2009
I have been playing with the Amultart for about a month! I use Andro max rubbers and my game has gone high up through the roof! Excellent blade! I have ben playing for 25 yrs and this blade is in my top 3! Excellent blade!
 External Review on October 2, 2009
Good blade. However, all out quick. Great in the offensive play if you are a well advanced player (USATT 2400 or higher). A nightmare when under pressure for players of almost every level excluding those who are at the table every day (reading: professionals. btw, even they prefer slower blades!). Don't buy it if you play not more than 10 hours a weak.
Nice looping characteristics, comparably good feel. Tremendous smashing capabilities. But way too fast for most of us!
Go buy a TBS, an ALC or a Mizutani if you're not among the very best! They are all fast, but way slower and will most likely enhance your game quite a bit more in almost all aspects!

 External Review on September 1, 2009
Its a blade with a gorgeous manufacturing quality. However, I find it very hard and stiff, with little dwell time in comparison with a Mizutani and a Photino. The throw is lower (with Tenergy 05) and the feeling for the ball is much much worse. This blade is not for the advanced nor for the intermediate player, its for very advanced players, which have a direct offensive style. If you use variable loops, sometimes direct, sometimes with a lot of spin and feel, choose a different blade. However, I assume it is the perfect blade for the type of players from which it is supposed to be used, meaning players with direct hard attack which do not need much feel for the ball.
 External Review on August 29, 2009
amultart is definitely a very good blade, but it is very very pricey. i am not sure if you want to spent 150 dollars on a blade, but i you do, do not worry because you will not be disappointed! it has very good looping characteristics. the speed is not outrageous, but it is more than enough to do very good loops. the control is very good too though. this is one of my favorite blades for blocking because the ball seems to sink into the wood and carbon of this blade, a feelign i like. i found this blade is real good with bryce speed fx and tenergy 64, as over tenergy 05. it is worth trying
 External Review on July 30, 2009
This blade is really amazing and worth every penny, you can create deadly loops with it from both wings.. Even though I use the penhold version but it is not that different. It is also heavy (e.g mine was 95g) which I really like!
 External Review on June 17, 2009
Butterfly Amultart ZL Carbon is an excellent blade for the two winged looper. Combined with excellent speed, control, and thickness, it allows for deadly loops,flips and controlled drives.

It is very similar to the Mizutani Jun, but it is relatively thicker, and weighs more. This allows for more acceleration of the head, allowing for more powerful shots. On the downside, you sacrifice the speed of your strokes and some control.

As usual, the Butterfly blade is top notch quality. It is a great blade for any offensively oriented player. The price is pretty high, but it's exelent blade.

Great blade for a two-wing looper without sacrificing good control. Very good quality, but with a high price.
Review by captginyu on November 30, 2008
Bought this frame in China during my internship,

First time i played like crap! Second time i played like i played like i did before, and now, i increased my level by multiple steps!

because of this frame i automaticly adjusted my backhand, i gained a lot of control (timing and stroke both better), and made me able to make powerful strokes with a lot of spin!

DEFINETLY WORTH THE MONEY!!!!

 External Review on October 22, 2008
I considered this blade a well balance in terms of speed and control. The control of this blade is very excellent compare to my previous carbon blade that is too hot to control. Bryce/Bryce Speed a perfect combination to this blade imho. BTW, I found SOLCION is a good try as well. The comtemporary design of Amultart is very outstanding.

This is a fast but controllable blade. Due to the effect of the ZL Carbon, it gives a soft feeling and it grips the ball longer, but on the other hand, it has the fast speed as a normal Carbon blade. Butterfly pushs the speed and control balance to a new higher level.
