Additional Information

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 Freitas ALC (6)

 External Review for Butterfly Freitas ALC on December 27, 2017
Softer than any other Butterfly blade I have tried. Softer than the Primorac. Vibration and flex. The feeling of the ball is great, like the all wood Stiga blades. This is how a blade should be. I played with Hurricane 3 Neo in FH and Tenergy 80 in the BH. The flex creates a catapult effect that helps produce tremendous spin, similar to DHS Hurricane Long 5. Great looping blade, fast but very controllable. The flared handle is thick, but a bit squared. You get used to it eventually. This blade is nothing like the rest of the blades of the Butterfly family. Having said that, I am sure you can find a Stiga blade that plays the same for a fraction of its price.

I am an 1800 rated player who loops/drives both sides and have been using the MF ALC for a little over 3 months. The blade is made of high quality, yet the design is a little understated. The blade feels "woody" on contact compared to other ALC blades, it reminded me of the TB ZLF in that respect. Light contact shots are very controllable (pushes, blocks). Away from the table, harder contact shots (loops/loop drives) the flex of the blade is apparent, which reminded me of some of the 5 ply blades Ive used before, but with more power. The blade plays best with medium hardness rubbers.

Review by gianquittia (Verified Customer) for Butterfly Freitas ALC on February 4, 2017
Love this blade. Using Tenergy 05 2.1 on FH and Tenergy 05 FX on bh. Beautiful dwell time. Speed is sufficient. I feel like this has a bit more dwell time than the Timo Boll ALC, while being a touch slower than that blade. I like both blades, but I prefer this one because of the increased spin and control.

I have to compare popular Timo Boll ALC before buy this blade. I like Freitas ALC it softer better dwell contact that feel spinnier. Limba ply with ALC superb for top spin.

 External Review for Butterfly Freitas ALC on July 30, 2016
Recently, I experienced a serious equipment junky relapse, resulting in me buying the new Freitas and Apolonia blades. While my bank account is significantly smaller, both of these blades are actually worth the large cash layout in my view. My Freitas feels not too heavy and not too light (probably 82 or 83 grams). Close to the table, it's pace is very close to that of the Garaydia alc/iolite neo,
However, unlike the Garaydia alc, the Freitas maintains its bite at mid-distance and beyond. The blade's respectable pace makes its rock solid control all the more impressive. In fact, the control of the Freitas is not too far behind that of my beloved Basaltec Outer blade (which has nowhere near the speed of the Freitas). In my opinion, the Freitas has excellent feel for a carbon composite blade. For the sake of comparison, I find it to be noticeably less numb than the garaydia alc and even the tb spirit. At the same time, it possesses that glorious "crack" when you catch the ball just right. My short game (always a liability) was fine with this blade, but not spectacular. The Freitas pairs extremely well with both soft and med/med-hard rubbers. I use tenergy 80 on fh and vega euro on bh, and the blade gets the most out of both. This blade will best suit those who appreciate a spinnier, dwelly (you know what I mean ) blade that still has plenty of backbone and venom from any distance.

Update: my rating of the stiffness (7) is a bit higher than I'd like. The only options are 5 or 7, but, in reality, I'd rate the stiffness a 6
