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 Zhang Jike Super ZLC (38)
This is a fast, premium blade from Butterfly. If you want to win with fast blocks and punches then this blade is for you. Punish those slightly high balls. Banana flick any service with speed sending your opponent to various corners. Too broke to afford it? Don't worry. There are cheaper products that can do the trick: Butterfly Timo Boll ZLC or Xiom Hayabusa ZXi are good choices for this task also. Still too expensive? Then try Donic Persson Carbotec for $50. If it breaks you can buy 7 more of them for the price of 1 Zhang J.K. Super ZLC. So is it worth it? From a pure playing point of view: no. But if you like using the most successful brand in table tennis with an Olympic champion's name on your blade then yes. I played with this blade and I got nothing against it, but let's get real: control of an offensive blade is not above 9 by definition. Don't fool yourself. Unless you have the footwork and talent of Lin Yun-Ju this blade may not be for you.
The best blade i have tried. i use zjk Alc, Ma long x 5, xiom hugo calderano sal, but this one produce a really good feeling. the quality of the wood is unbelievable, and i produce a lot of spin. it s the gem of table tennis blades. The blade is also beautiful but the price is high. maybe the right price is 280 euros and they can sell more blade than now...i enjoy it. mine is 93 g but it feels like 87 or 88 because the quality of the wood
9.3/10 for OFF style. FH/BH: Donic Bluefire JP 02, 2mm, 47g (0.23g/cm^2), 45 degrees (ESN), 36 degrees (Shore A). Blade: Butterfly Zhang Jike Super ZLC, 90g, 157mm x 150mm x 5.6mm (Width x Height x Thickness). Plies: 7 (5 Wood + 2 Composite): Koto - SZLC - Limba - Kiri - Limba - SZLC - Koto.
I hope that one day people in this sport will become more concious and will realize that the role of an athlete is much more than just playing.What This blade and this company is saying is:" if you want to play table tennis with a good quality material you will have to pay more than 300 dollars just for the blade". Is this kind of philosophy that we want for our sport? Also is never clear how this wonder composite materials really influenciate the mechanichal properties of the blade... but the name they give is Super ZLC....so if its super it must be good... now the new harimoto blade is comming and this one will be Super ZLC with the inneforce (???) an if you play this one and dislike is because you forgot that it will only work good with the new dignics both sides. And who looses in all this? Table tennis looses.
Ratings for 90g. It's not the fastest, but still very fast with little feel. For advanced players. It's koto, super zlc, limba, kiri, 5.6mm. The price is ridiculous. You are better off spending the money on some coaching lessons.
No matter where you hit the ball, it feels like dead center... 95% sweetspot. Yes, it's a lot of money but it's definitely worth. This blade is on a level of its own!
Plies: 7 (5 Wood + 2 Composite)
- 2 * Koto 0.5mm
- 2 * SZLC 0.25mm
- 2 * Limba 0.5mm
- Kiri 3.1mm
Plies: koto 0.5mm - szlc 0.25mm - limba 0.5mm - kiri 3.1mm.
Guys, if you want to be a killer in speed, SPIN and control, use Rakza 9 both sides voila it is a monster. I have been trying tenergies but not as effective like Rakza 9. When I accidentally try My old Rakza 9 ...Wow perfect!!!!! Try it guys! update: changed the rubbers with tenergy 64 fh and tenergy 05fx or 05 much better.
Bought this blade along with JMSZLC directly from Butterfly. Compares to JMSZLC, the ZJKSZLC is slower, same spin, lower throw(med), slightly better control & more forgiving; little more dwell despite harder surface wood. The anatomic grip is wider than the JMSZLC and is perfect. Blade weighs 91.4g measured @5.6mm. I should have waited for the lighter blade but I wanted to get both blades at the same time. I have Fast Arc S1 max on FH & Razka Soft max on BH. Speed=9.3; Control=9.5; Spin=9.5; Feel=good, Flick=very easy; Flex=med+ firm; Hardness= med; Smash/Flat Hit/Punch/Drive=Excellent without too much vibration; Short/mid/Long Game=Very good; Push/chop=very good; Balance=good; AN grip=nice & wide; Dwell=good; Throw=med; Serve=ex; Sweetspot=huge; Overall=9.6
I am a beginner who s been practicing 5 days/ week for more than a year. I ve also taken private training with a certified coach. I just received my ZJK SZLC yesterday and played with it for 3 hours. Compared with my old blade Butterfly Photino ( both blades paired withTenergy 05-FX) I feel improvement a little in speed. The ZJK SZLC, however, gives me a huge improvement in control. Honestly, I was worried that my level could not adapt with this fast blade, but it turns out I am very happy with my purchase. I aggree with some reviews about the " sweet spot". Even the ball hits close to the rim of the paddle, it still returns with a surprised level of stability. I feel like I just stepped in a higher level with this beautiful blade. For the beginners like me, the ZJK super ZLC is realy worth your money
Beautiful blade. Too powerful/Hard to control. For collector. If you have a deep pocket then take this baby home. Very very nice. I like it.
This blade was pretty mediocre on the price value. I used it with Tenergy 05 on both sides, and although the contact was crisp, the blade was light, and in smashing the blade provided no feel, and when ever I wanted to do a speed drive, the blade did not come through at all. I changed back to my Timo Boll ZLC with Tenergy 64 on the forehand and Tenergy 05 on the backhand, and I immediately felt the ball hit more crisply, and the blocks and smashes were more accurate. I could also hit drives with more speed. I would not recommend the Zhang Jike Super ZLC. I myself really like the Timo Boll ZLC.
Hello! This is my review of the Butterfly Zhang Jike Super ZLC.
So first, here is a few generalities.
BH- Butterfly Spin Art 1.9
FH- Butterfly Spin Art 2.1
Straight with a grip
88g - very evenly distributed, even with rubbers
Throw Angle (the angle in which the ball propels):
Somewhat low, but not as low as what others have said.
-Sweet spot (SO AWESOME)
-Control (but that also depends on your rubber)
-The ZLC layer is very noticeable compared to paddles that are all wood
-The box and blade are sexy
I think the price is definitely a con, but if you have the money and you are looking for the highest quality paddle for an offensive player, then it is worth the money.
My personal review:
I love this blade. I will not be getting rid of this Butterfly Zhang Jike Super ZLC blade any time soon, and look forward to using it with different rubber combinations.
Immediately upon practicing with it for the first time, I could feel how it had a hard blade but extremely soft composition that gave it more power. Compared to things such as the Andro Temper Tech or other all wood blades, the ZLC had more control and power at the spin time. In addition to the soft composition and high spin/power rubber I used, the sweet spot of the paddle was INSANE, and added FURTHER control and power! In addition, the blade's weight contributed to the power of the paddle. The reason I am not worried about the power is because the throw angle with my high spin rubber resulted in a powerful blade, with lots of spin, that consistently landed where I wanted it to (even more so than my all wood blades).
To be completely honest, I didn't know how I felt about it for the first 30 minutes. I had to change my stroke and and stances so I could hit it properly consistently, but once I did, I realized the combination of any rubber with this blade could potentially result in a beast of a blade. Although I would categorize this blade as OFF+ instead of OFF because it is just THAT powerful, but I think it is also well suited for modern defensive players, as well as those who are gentle OFF (not to be mistaken with OFF-) or OFF/OFF+. I believe that this blade could also fit all around players if they use rubbers that focus on control. Really, this blade is a jack of all trades.
The price is really, really high. Was it worth the price? Yes, but I don't think charging $400-600 for this paddle (depending on when, what type, rubbers, etc) is fair.
