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.

Old big Grubba ALL + .Online dedicated to our Polish table tennis legend. There are several versions of this blade. The best known is the old black sign. Great for learning the game. Mistakes.In today's fast tennis unfortunately too slow.
It is best played with hard rubbers
I have been playing table tennis for about 2 years now but I am still a novice. I found that this blade was hard to adjust to at first since I came off of using crappy pre-made $40 Stiga paddles. The blade is very fast in my experience as someone who was used to low end equipment and I had trouble controlling the ball. I had a basic understanding of stroke mechanics and I practiced them a lot after purchasing this. I am glad to say that I can now handle this blade fairly well, it produces good speed and power for me. I've been using this blade for about four months now and my game has improved considerably and I hope for it to continue improving with practice over time. Overall this is a solid blade and I feel like it has lots of speed and power. (Although I'm not sure what someone who is used to higher end equipment would feel about it.)
I paired this blade with a DHS Hurricane 3 Neo on the FH and DHS TG Skyline 2 on the BH.
This is one of those funny blades. A diamond in the rough, if you will. I prefer it over my Timo Boll ZLF at 1/4 the price. I did some direct back to back comparisons with Grubba, TB ZLF and Viscaria (all with Tenergy 05) in the fields of touch(net play), hitting/counterhitting, service, looping, driving and smash. The Grubba led the way in all tests but counter hitting and driving. This is what makes it a funny little blade. In touch shots, I could easily get double, even triple bounce drops off of the opponents serve. Yet in counter hitting, the ball would rocket off the table somewhat uncontrollably, even faster than Viscaria. Looping, the Grubba had more spin, higher arc and more control than the other 2 blades and better feeling. I would use this blade 100% of the time if I could find a rubber to calm down the counter hitting and still yield good loop results. Otherwise, this blade fits my offensive loop oriented game perfectly.
I rated the blade at a speed of 8 due to the lack of control on counter hitting using Tenergy 05. Gave control an 8 also, which would've been 9.2 had there been no hitting issue.
It's not that slow as rated by now, it's all+ close to off-. Amazing control and feeling, very spinny. Recommended!
i really like this blade only problem with this blade just not fast but controll is amazing
About two decades ago, I played my first tournament using a Grubba. Helped me keep a lot of balls into play. The lack of speed also helped my opponents return my spins back to the table.
Great for service --- seems I scored on my services more with this blade than I did with my other blades. There's noticeable vibration when blocking and the short handle took me some time to get used to.
Great, great all around blade. I think in the ALL category, the Grubba is the best I have tried so far.
The control of this blade is spectacular! Actually it has the feel and the control of an ALL blade, but still with enough speed to set up your points with solid loops and finish them with smashes.
I played this blade for a couple of years, but exchanced it for a faster blade. What a mistaka di maka! Now I'm back with it and I'm delighted! So much feeling and control, all my shots landed on the table. Awesome!
I've played with blades from Donic, Skitt, Butterfly, Tibhar and Joola, but Butterfly is the best by far. Very high quality!
It is a thin and light blade for those who enjoy control style. It has vibration which is only not felt when hit with precision at sweet spots. The handle is not so appealing and appears soft to indicate its category: an all round blade. Good blade for those who start developing their styles of play.
