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.

Overall First Impression: Nice size and weight (~90g), very well balanced. Adjusted very easily. I think the balance between Off (Speed, Spin) and Control allows the player to impose their style directly upon the racquet rather than the other way around.
Handle: I have slightly above average hands and thought the TBZLC was more comfortable. I ordered a butterfly grip tape for my TBS...huge difference, much more comfortable, and gave me a better grasp of the paddle (I even liked it better than the TBZLC without the grip tape, so overall I think if you have a normal hand size it should be fine, otherwise a little grip tape made a significant difference)
Speed: Slower than I thought for a a/c blade but again it allows you to control the shot without launching the ball. Don't read this to mean it is slow!, its just not as fast as the ZLC, which isn't necessarily a bad thing (Obviously the rubber you play with will make a difference). Great for close to table and mid distance. Looped well (work in progress so I cannot elaborate)
Spin: Again, just a well balance blade. With average stiffness and a medium hardness, your not going to be below or above par with the racquet alone. It will really depend on the rubber and style of play the one has.
Control: The above says it all! The balanced nature allows for a generally well controlled all around game
Overall: Great racquet to build a baseline from, especially if your starting out or upgrading (with an Off/All+ Style). Totally worth it and unless your switching from something specific (eg. a super fast or spinny blade and expecting that level of the same in TBS) you won't be disappointed! 9/10 (assuming a perfect blade doesn't exist)
Topspins/Loops-9/10 ( The blade has good dwell time so loops and topspins are very heavy and not easy to pick)
Chop-8/10 (Although This is a offensive blade not made to defence but then also chops are having so much spin)
Push-8.5/10 (Shorter rallies are easy )
Block-9/10 (This blade is stiff also that is why blocks are very easy)
But I will suggest this blade for a Advanced player because it is very fast made for the person who can control the ball.
