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 BalsaCarbo X5 (43)

Its a good blade if you are a starter but the price is up for a 3+2 blade. Kinda disappointed that the carbon in there doesnt speed it up. Not as fast a stiga all wood blades and its a big price for a blade with not enough speed but a positive sign is the great control.

Pretty good and really bad at the same time.
Feedback is horrible, like non-excistent. Also found it to light. Tried it with softer rubbers like Bryce FX... never again. Tried it with pips, not so great. Tried with harder rubbers.., finally got it to work. The rest of the review will be based on harder rubbers to keep things fair. The problem with this blade is that it feels inconsistent. It reacts differently to different types of speed. When you hit hard it acts fast, but when you hit it softly it feels slow. So far great... in theory. But then your opponent gives you a fast ball and you want to return with something soft. Suddenly it's weird because you're used to a slower feeling on those shots but the fast ball makes the blade feel fasters. Or vice versa you push a slow ball to the end of the table and notice it's damn hard to calculate how much power you need to put into the ball because it reacts so differently on every pace. Getting used to this is a nightmare that won't end. In general: Close to table it's hard to keep a tight play when either you or the opponent really loves to switch up the tempo. Away from the table I find it hard to chop but easy to attack with. It really gives an extra kick when you hit hard. Feels lacking when spinning and the sweetspot is small. Blocking can be done passively. Drives and spin can also be somewhat deceptively with this blade. When you play a diagonal shot but don't do through the complete motion it goes straight ahead.
