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 (15)

The Butterfly Marcos Freitas ALC is a 5+2 OFF outer carbon blade (Limba-ALC-Limba-Ayous-Limba-ALC-Limba). This blade has the same wood plys as the: BTY Korbel, BTY Primorac, Tibhar Stratus Power Wood, et al. with slight variations in handle shapes, and placement/lack of fiber layers. The handle of the MF ALC fills the hand nicely with a larger neck and a moderate flare at the base. The blade has a good finish with the handle and wings sanded smooth. The blade I have for my review is 89g (self-selected) with a thickness of 5.9mm. This blade suited for mid-range looping characterized by MF's play-style. The thick outer limba plys allow for controllable slow gear for service, short game, and slow loops. When applying more power the thicker core provides stability, the outer carbon provides extra power, while the limba plys provide good control and dwell. The carbon reacts proportionally to the effort given to strokes. This is a nice feature as some carbon blades tend to be reactive where a stroke generates a ball that was not intended. The amount of kick and lethality when looping is proportional to the effort you apply in the low to mid-range, with a little extra kick in the high-power range. This blade has a medium feel, due to thicker limba outer plys. With the vibrations being precise and near the top of the handle at the thumb and base of the index finger. This blade is very stable, consistent, and controllable and is well suited for euro-loopers. The thicker soft top plys in combination with the outer carbon and stiff core pair well with medium/hard springy tensors providing a direct feeling at ball contact. For folks that have a compact loop stroke outer ALC provides more reactive speed and power that may be lacking in a wood blade. The Butterfly Marcos Freitas blade is an excellent looping blade and I highly recommend it to folks that are coming from Korbel type constructions looking for a bit more controllable speed.

Pretty low throw and speedy. Found it worked best with tenergy05 and high throw rubbers. short game had trouble being to low throw and couldnt flip or push with enough spin over the net. It was a bit hard to open since it was low throw. Overall, an average blade for those who can open well and like to keep the ball right on the net. Good dwell and feeling over other outer ALC blades.

It's got lots of spin, gears, control and feel. Paired up with Fastarc g1 for FH speed.
