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 Garaydia T5000 (8)
I am a beginner, with 1.5 years of practice, 3 times a week - I think it is important that in these evaluations there are also rookies who inform other rookies :) I am an aggressive player but still with bad footwork. I started with all-woods hinoki (Darker's 7 ply and Xiom S7), then Butterfly TBS. Three months ago I bought the Garaydia T5, which I like because it is very fast and forces me to develop the footwork - it is impossible to play with it without moving well. The feel has very little vibration and believe me, the blade is fast as hell, a little hard to control but helps to return the ball fast with small movements. At my club, two very experienced players have similar (old) blades: BTY Schlager Carbon, that has little more dwell time and similar speed, and a old Primorac Carbon that has even more dwell but less speed. For me, what is hard to do is the slow topspin, but both my colleagues are able to do it well with my blade with lots of spin and / or punch, even against "chop" short services - thats my fault my bad spin, because I was using bad techniques with previous woods that have lots of dwell helping to "grab" the ball.
In sum, I think this blade is now helping me to evolve, forcing me to devellop good footwork and to improve my topspin technique. I reccomend soft rubbers, now using Xiom Omega VII Euro and Stiga Calibra Sound lt, both MAX. And YES, that's my best blade!
BTY Garaydia T5000 is a off++, build quality from BTY is outstanding although a more premium box (like Dhs Long 5 box is better, but that is just marketing), throw angle is medium, awesome for smash and block but lifting heavy backspin balls needs some adjustments. Paired with Tenergy 05 for FH + BH is great combination.
Very speedy blade with a nice, thick handle (ST). It is extremely stiff, with almost no give to it. However, it is not the hardest blade out there. With the substantial hinoki wood layers on the outside, it does have a relatively medium hardness despite the high speed and very fast, direct rebound effect. A tremendous blocking weapon! If you like stiff and fast blades, the blocks will be returned as bullets! That being the case, the looping ability is sacrificed some. Harder to play soft shots over the table such as pushes. You can use less power to get more effect, though. It feels quite touchy as a result. You need to enjoy a powerful style of play. Not delicate touches or even really spin based games, since other blades do that better. It does spin wonderfully, still, just using a different approach to the game. Flicks over the table are terribly lethal! Chops are difficult to do yourself, as expected. But you can loop them back with tons of power!
Favors a forceful kind of player, one who either likes to attack with great gusto -- or for players who don't have big strokes, and want to utilize the blades built in speed to make up for their own small movements. The consistency is brilliant! Every hit does as you think it will. This is not to say the t5000 is easy to control... only that it behaves the same way each time, for better or worse.
This blade is surprisingly good with dhs h8 f/h and tinarc 5 b/h. The tackiness of the Chinese rubbers added a load dwell time and control for the blade while maintaining that extreme power. The ball just generates a ton of spin and power and just shoot out when power looping from close to mid table. B/h is also powerful with the control of tinarc 5. I find it very easy to counter loop against topspin with this set up. Is a lot of fun playing with it!
I just brought a second one with mxp on the fh,bh t 05 fx. My set up is t.05 fh,bh t05fx loops are incredibly fast and spinny on my first setup fh,and bh.i will definitely give you a update about the mxp in a couple of weeks.
Since 2 years I am playing with XIOM Strato. very good blade, very fast and good control. Now I am playing with Butterfly Garaydia T5000 St. Without rubbers, this blade is faster like Strato and it has a very large surface with the same control. Very good spin in combination with Donic Bluefire M1 Turbo 2mm (FH), very very fast with Butterfly Brycehighspeed 1.9mm (BH - amazing combination), very good for blocks. According to the Butterfly Matrix (2016), this blade is the fastest of Butterfly blades. In comparison with Strato, I think Speed= 9.7-9.8 and Control= 8.8. The weight of my blade is 92 g, with rubbers, total weight is 184 g. The wood layers are the same: Kiso Hinoky.
Excellent blade. The control is perfect as expected from a tamca 5000. The speed is good. Lift and throw is also good. Suitable for all intermediate players.
Rakza X Fh and Rakza 7 soft on the back hand. good combination. tried it with tenergys but not that effective. good for both near and away from the table. Perfect combination of Speed spin and control.
