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 Freitas ALC (9)
However, unlike the Garaydia alc, the Freitas maintains its bite at mid-distance and beyond. The blade's respectable pace makes its rock solid control all the more impressive. In fact, the control of the Freitas is not too far behind that of my beloved Basaltec Outer blade (which has nowhere near the speed of the Freitas). In my opinion, the Freitas has excellent feel for a carbon composite blade. For the sake of comparison, I find it to be noticeably less numb than the garaydia alc and even the tb spirit. At the same time, it possesses that glorious "crack" when you catch the ball just right. My short game (always a liability) was fine with this blade, but not spectacular. The Freitas pairs extremely well with both soft and med/med-hard rubbers. I use tenergy 80 on fh and vega euro on bh, and the blade gets the most out of both. This blade will best suit those who appreciate a spinnier, dwelly (you know what I mean ) blade that still has plenty of backbone and venom from any distance.
Update: my rating of the stiffness (7) is a bit higher than I'd like. The only options are 5 or 7, but, in reality, I'd rate the stiffness a 6
