FAQ: Does Megaspin sell Japan-made Butterfly blades?
Some Butterfly blades like Korbel and Grubba are produced in factories both in Europe and in Japan, so they exist in 2 variants. When a Japanese blade has a Europe-made version, we always carry the Japanese variant. Other blades like Butterfly Timo Boll Offensive are only made in China so we cannot carry a Japanese variant of these blades.

Reviews of Butterfly Apolonia ZLC (10)
I had 93 grams batch.
Too fast for me
I play with TBS then Freitas ALC and come to this one,because i miss that wood feeling.
Mine is 91 gr.FL heavier than average what i want bcs i think heavier examples plays better and with less vibration.
Medium soft and crisp,little vibration.
Woody feel and control on slow strokes,when you step away from table and loop and specialy counterloop,then you see the power of the blade and how the hard ZLC layers start to kick the ball like a beast.
Spin is very high on slow and very high on faster loops.Serving with high spin and low pace no problem.
Paired better with harder rubbers because outer limba is soft.
My combination 05 FH and 05 FX BH.
This blade produce more spin than TBS and Freitas.
Only the blocking is better with harder ALC-s.
Overall is the beast.
(i.e. it feels easier to tame to me)--even as it meets and perhaps exceeds the pace of the IF. Typically, I don't fall for blades that feel this hefty. So, I'm surprised by just how much I enjoy my Apolonia. It manages the trick of being both soft and crisp. Of offering both control and, when called upon, a dangerous kick. This blade is effective from any distance, and, like the Freitas, it emits an extremely gratifying "crack" when you crunch the ball correctly. Basically, this blade deserves is steep price
