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.

Very well balanced in terms of speed and control. I've used many blades, Viscaria, Schlager, Innerforce Layer ALC.S, Rosewood NCT VII, Intensity VPS V, Clipper Wood, and maybe only Viscaria comes close to such balance. Close to the table attacks are very efficient with strong support for away from the table counterattacks. Good dwell time to generate powerful spin. Short game gives all-wood like control. The best blade for my style of play.

Once you learn to tame the beast, so to speak, blocks are much easier! Really being able to utilize that "airiness" comes in handy, and soon the true control of this blade is unearthed! So, it may feel too fast to begin with for most.

-

Loops are stupendous! Heavy, loaded, and not super speedy. A good amount of dwell time really lets you load up on the ball. And despite its thickness, the ball doesn't actually rocket out all that fast. Sure, it has a quicker kick than defensive blades such as the innershield ZLF. But nothing like a hard 7 play all wood blade, where you feel as if you're playing with a 2x4 plank!

-

The short game, again like the blocks, is really fantastic! The backhand flick feels like a dream! Great touch over the table. I've never been a great pusher, so my opinion here isn't worth too much weight. Having said that, I didn't fare any worse with this blade than any other.

-

Smashes - not ideal, due to the airiness I keep mentioning. If that is your game, you may want to look elsewhere.

-

Chops - doable, yet not too forgiving as the blade is fairly fast

-

All in all, a truly magnificent weapon!

-

Pros: Light weight, spinny with good dwell, very controllable once tamed, large grip, solid blocking, soft 'airy' feel

-

Cons: price, too fast for some styles or experience levels, doesn't chop or smash very well, unforgiving during initial uses, you have to enjoy fast blades

Such a beautifully crafted blade. Of the 15+ nice blades I've owned, this one (along with the alc version, which I also own) feels by far the most premium. I thought that a control rating of 9 had to be exaggerated before i purchased it. However, the level of control and feeling is remarkable in such a quick blade. While promotional material describes it as ideal for close range play, I find that it is a fantastic mid distance weapon as well. While I love my garaydia alc as well, the zlc has that lethal extra kick away from the table that make a difference in a tight match. I play with T05 FH and T80 BH, and aggressively looping underspin is a breeze with this setup. While the short game will never be my strong point, i was pleased with this blade's performance in the short game. I am undoubtedly honeymooning with this blade, but I simply love it so far. The only caution I would give is that the Garaydia zlc would probably be a little aggressive for anyone under solid intermediate level.

Mine is a chinese penhold with 05 fh and rzkza x on the back. Excellent power with so many gears, esp so much power on the fh with soft feel. I've also have the alc it is also good but less power but still a very good blade, i've got nittaku h3 neo national on fh and provincial on the back. I've tried about 25 blades in 5 years I really like these two, worth every penny I paid.

I was hesitant to make the move to this paddle, as I was fairly happy using my donic black devil carbon, which was the fastest blade at the club, but it just seemed that my game had to revolve around the playing characteristics of that blade, so I was tempted to get the garaydia t5000, but speed isnt the say all be all, or else I would still be using the black devil. Once switching to this paddle, the price tag became obvious, well worth the money, there is a reason for that price. In the short game, it is very dynamic and controllable, with a light touch. For away from the table, it has enough power to rip the ball, and best of all, it is flexible enough to impact tremendous spin, and allows for easy looping. My game has now been able to evolve in all categories, as this blade CAN do it all, at a high level.

Just bot this marvelous product . Played once,and just one word for it-ASTONISHING! Due attack acts almost like off+. Exeptional spin and flat smash. Spin can be made far,close,or even from table.During passive game,you feel able to continue,or attack at once(as you wish). Flip goes easy,so i disturb my opponents quickly. In defence,feels smooth,mild ,very precise. I just love this one. In block,chop and spinning is very forgiving. Comparing to TBALC, everithing is twice better , even sound. Craftsmanship-i think BTfly just scored !Blade looks like piece of jewel...My Garaydia weights only 81gram,with rubbers exactly 180g. I use Xiom Omega IV pro max. Maybe with T05 would act even better,but i dont know how it is possible?
Update:
Was too amazed with speed that i was not thinking well about control. So,control is zero! I had at same time Innerforce ZLCZLC(old version), with same rubbers(T05) - 5 times better blade is innerforce in all aspect of play...
Be very attentive if you wanna buy Garaydia-does not worth money Butterfly ask(180eur). I switched to Xiom Vega tour and just now i see what is true quality of blade

Brand spanking new for 2015 is a very fine and exquisitely designed blade from Butterfly's latest offering. It has the latest cutting edge design technology with ZLC and this blade is absolutely gorgeously stunning as well. I really like the green jade jem placed on the lower part of backhand side of the handle - such a beauty to behold!

The 1.6 mm thick outer Hinoki plies on both sides feel like heaven and provides very little vibration. You can really feel like you're gripping the ball. I don't believe outer plies this thick are even available on any other blade in the market - let alone in Kiso Hinoki.

For me personally it is just a bit fast and harder to control when paired with Tenergy's. However if you're over 2200 you'll probably do just fine. That's when you can make the speed really shine.
