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.

FAQ: Do Butterfly blades come pre-sealed?

All Butterfly blades come pre-sealed from the factory. There is no need to add blade sealing but you may if you require additional protection.

Reviews of Butterfly Innerforce Layer ALC (26)

One of the thicker btfly woods. Due to the inner layers, it feels softer, but it is quite stiff and stable. It can be controlled very well, and it is fast enough for attacking play. A little faster than the Apolonia ZLC and softer. Highly recommended for varied attacking play. Harder covers work well on it. One of the best woods I've ever played with. My backhand cover is dignics 09c.

This is a masterpiece from Butterfly, a real beast at the table! It was a complete refreshment after my Korbel SK7.

Speed; This blade has a really good speed and power in it both close and away from the table. Some people were complaining about being slow or not quick enough away from the table. This is definitely not true or they were playing with a slower rubber. Smashes, flat hits and all kind of strokes requiring good speed all are possible with this blade. Powerful hits really activate the carbon layers, providing an extra boost to your ball.
Spin; Due the flexibility of this blade it offers you a good dwell time to impart spin on the ball.
Control; It really has the bigger sweet spot the ALC offers you making it a more than controlled blade. It has a good margin for error and great stability. It maintains that woody feel which helps and boosts your confidence in using both offensive and defensive strokes.
Feel; It has little vibration and great feel. I personally like a little vibration in my blade, this one just edges out the right balance between the great feedback and complete mute feel. It possesses a great and pleasant soft feel because of the limba outer layer.

To sum it up, I don't think I will ever try another blade in the next few years, this blade is just really well balanced in every aspects. If you want great speed with great control and high spin potential, you go for this blade. On a side note, I recommend you having a medium hard or hard rubbers to have all the energy and potential the blade gives you. Too soft rubbers might give different results than previously explained.

Just got this blade and tested it for 2 hours (My previous blade was 1st ver Mizutani ZLC). First impression is that this blade is very slow and it feels very 'trapped' and its not letting go for some reason, however the control and forgiveness is exceptional, after an hour or so, trying to throw more power into each shots, this blade suddenly taps into this power and unlocks itself like turning Super Saiyan. It will shoot lazer if you hit hard enough with the correct timing. If you compare this to a car, its like Turbo lag and when the Turbo comes in, it shoots off or like Vtec kicked in when certain RPM is achieved (the ALC carbon kicks in), which is actually a very nice feeling and will make you a player that can do sudden explosive shots when needed while also defend as much as possible when necessary. This is not a super fast blade, but fast enough with the right strokes and rubber, but with its amazing control.. The trade off isnt so bad. It gives you massive confidence to do what you want to do. It isnt like an open buffet free for grab for its power like the ZLC, but a 3 course balanced meal that you tab into as it goes.
