 External Review for Butterfly 3-Star Ball G40+ - Pack of 12 on May 18, 2018
Very solid ball, would definitely recommend.
Occasionally I would hit the ball against the corner of the table by accident, but this only resulted in scuff marks or paint smudges.
The ball is super reliable and does NOT break easily, compared to celluloid balls.

Excellent by Butterfly.

Not an awful ball. Looks awesome and durability seems good. However I feel it doesn't compare to xushaofa. Ball seems slow and tends to lose speed when playing long shots.

 External Review for Butterfly 3-Star Ball G40+ - Pack of 12 on December 27, 2017
I really love this ball, it is the best ive ever tried! Very hard, round and glossy. It spins very well but the best part about this ball is its speed. Its really fast and the first time I used this ball I actually shot the ball out of the table several times! However after you get used to it you'll find it amazing. Also it bounced higher and longer tham any other plastic ball I have. The only balls that came close was the Butterfly master quality training ball, the butterfly easy ball and the kingnik 3 star seamless ball.

The only downside is that aside from being very durable, sometimes it cracks in very weird moments. I was in a looping rally with my partner and in the middle of the rally it just cracked. And it wasn't even along the seam! Also overtime the logo wears down too.

one last thing is compared to other balls, the sound is very crispy and sounds almost broken. For me I do not mind it but some others hate the sound.

Aside from all the negatives, this is still a great ball! Good job butterfly!

Worst ball ever, no rotation, you have to play very close to table becouse even medium distance from table ball drops down, very slow of the table, no spin, you can loop hard, but no rotation

 External Review for Butterfly 3-Star Ball G40+ - Pack of 12 on February 5, 2017
The ball is supposed to weigh 2.7g (according to ITTF). G40+ is heavier than ideal. However, it is very round and it leaves no residue on the rubber when new unlike Nittaku Premium 40+.
Weight: 2.76 +/- 0.03g (ITTF requires: 2.67-2.77g).

Absolutely detest this ball. Seems to spin less and play a lot slower than the Nittaku Premium and XSF 3 star balls. If you exclusively flat hit, I think you will love this ball.

I just received my order of a dozen G40+ balls from megaspin and tested them for roundness. 5 out of 12 were imperfect. I also bought 3 Nittaku Premium balls and all were perfectly round. First of all, these new balls are over priced (including Nittaku balls). For this price, the balls should be perfectly round. Made in Germany vs Japan. There you go.

Very soft and quick to pick up nicks. These are one of the worst 40+ balls I've tried to date.

Soft and easily nicked. Pretty embarrassing for Butterfly, especially at that price. Buy Nittaku or XuShaoFa instead.

Pretty solid balls, actually. Been playing hard for hours a day (for about a month) and haven't broken one yet. They sound like jingles bells, which amuses me greatly.

this ball surface is some glossy which anti to get wet, many other ball surface is rough so water stick to surfaces easy.
compare to Donic 40+poly, Buttlefly 40+poly longer bouncing time and some sound tick pitch which Donic doesn't, but when playing Buttlefly's ball feel heavier. Haven't try Nittaku 40+poly yet, it's hard to find seller in my nearly local area. Buttlefly 40+poly always my first choice.

 External Review for Butterfly 3-Star Ball G40+ - Pack of 12 on May 3, 2016
I wanted to start by saying many have already observed in most poly balls, they left groves on the balls easily after say a couple hours of playing. If yours last days, like mines lasted for over 2 weeks (that's close to 10 days and 2+ hours of playing each day), by now the groves becomes finer and more worn in. And the logo faded too. Air still tight and bounce good. Hardness still the same.

That being said, I've had one ball literally cracked in half mid way through the air after hitting off my paddle/rubber sweet spot. It wasn't from a bad smash or contact. But I considered that as an abnormally. My other balls (like 4 of them now) last fine and a long time.

I gave the consistency only a 7 out of 10. Because 1 of the 12 ball carton I got has an unsmooth extra piece of plastic around the seem, as if it's not sanded or trimmed off properly during the manufacturing process. But all my other 11 balls are good. Yes, so I'm kind of a tough grader, well I better be, when paying $3.33/ball!

My friend's older G40+ did not crack or got soft or anything, but interestingly enough, it lost air! So it didn't bounce right anymore. He said he used that same ball for close to a month. Again, he's not much of a smasher or dead hitter either. So go figure! Not bad if $3.33 can last for 3+ weeks to 1 month from my average observation.

I like these 40+ balls, very durable and seem consistently round. I bought a dozen and only had one bad ball. Would highly recommend. My favorite is the Nittaku premium 40+ from Japan, but this is my next choice.

 External Review for Butterfly 3-Star Ball G40+ - Pack of 12 on December 18, 2015
Only tried 3 of these so far (Jan 2016), but very good so far in terms of playability, but not durability. Bounce drop test was almost identical and then bounced for a bit longer than celluloid ball.

Very hard and perfect roundness.

Sound is the most distinctive from other balls. Very high-pitched compared to others, including poly.

In-play does seem to "float" a bit more than celluloid balls but otherwise very consistent to play with.

Durability seems low though. I had one break in my bag (indentation) which while my have been accidental, never happened with any celluloid balls. The second ball broke after 20 minutes knock-up. For now, rating durability as "they break often" and will update as testing continues. Rating Consistency as 7 due to durability inconsistency.

My ratings: Hardness: very hard. Roundness: perfect. Speed: 9.0. Durability: they break often. Consistency: 7.0. Overall: 8.0
