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.S (10)

I am quite positively surprised by the ALC.S, but with OX, close to the table. Especially with the rather thin synthetic fiber-reinforced woods, such as the Shake Defence and the shield of Yinhe, I found the control with OX on the table particularly strong, but with the shield I have made too many twiddeling errors because of the blade that protrudes too far into the handle and with the Shake Defence I have not warmed up, without really being able to explain well why. The shield was actually the best I could test from the play characteristics (Zeulloid).
The ALC.S was actually just an impulse buy, but it harmonizes extremely well with the Zeitgeist OX and you have, apart from the excellent control and the surprisingly pronounced braking effect, in this combo the best characteristics in "pip-spin" (and highest control) that I have ever experienced. It does indeed feel softer than those two, but is obviously stiff enough due to the ALC to control the pimples very well. I find the slightly heavier weight to be a very good offset to the lack of weight from double pimple insides. How much the Spruce plywood plays a role in this I can't say, but it really does everything very well and controlled, chop block (most important to me), flip, empty block, counter and "pimple-spin." Really amazing. As for pimples inside, it also has a super control in the short and passive game and becomes faster than you expect when playing topspin (tested with T 25 max and now covered with Battle 2). It makes a relatively high arc for my standards, which I actually do not necessarily like, but the balls sink surprisingly often still on the line. Softer feel than Shake and Shield, but definitely on par (with advantages in pimple attack-in combination with Zeitgeist) and with better spin play (noticeably more rotation). So those who disrupt at the table and mainly play topspin attacks might get happy here.

Great control and ball feeling. Enough power if you play close to the table. Easy to produce spin on serves and loops. I use it with Impartial XS 2.1mm. Very good! Note: please use fast rubbers on it.

My search is over.
After about 10yrs of play with TBS, I found it to be crazy fast & no feel with new tensor rubbers (hard). So I was loosing confidence at the end of every match.
So I tested Bty Harimoto (over size, AN handle feels also more fat), was quite ok with new rubbers, but fells heavy.
Bty Innerforce ZLC (feels faster, hard to guess and controll the gears.. easy to make points, but feels more like luck then).
Bty Innerforce ALC (too close to normal ALC or TBS).
Bty Finewood OFF- (thin blade, over size, no carbon, lot of fun after getting use to it a bit, best bh I ever played - with gewo nexxus EL hard, but lack of confidence for faster fh game, too much vibration).
Bty Innerfoce ALC.S (best of 2 worlds, really combined allwood feel with fast carbon attack, I could not even belive how good it was for me right from the first touch. Also big supprise for me: it is 90g but doesn't feel heavy in my hand. I am not afraid of 9:9 score anymore!)

I am writing this from the perspective of an "advanced beginner". I have my basics down but a long way to go. I started out with 5-ply all wood blades landing on Primorac with H3 Neos on both sides. My coach suggested going for Tenergy Rubbers so I made the leap to Primorac with T05s. There's a lot of "good advice" out there for beginners, such as "avoid carbon blades", however, I made a couple of cheeky purchases as I was eager to try different things out, specifically Viscaria (T05), Carbonado 45 (Mantra M) and Innerforce Layer S (w/ T80). Out of all these blades I immediately warmed to the Viscaria with the Carbonado a close second - Viscaria just feels right, sounds right and just does exactly what you'd expect the blade to do. The Innerforce blade was my least favourite - compared it sounds duller, it is slower, which I don't particularly mind, but the slowness seems more like "reluctance". I know it's a feature that it takes more for the ALC to be "activated" but Viscaria seems more dialed in and just starts "clacking" at the exact expected time. The plus sides are: awesome quality, much nicer and less 90's design than Viscaria, and it feels very good in the hand with a slightly thinner grip. Despite this only being my 3rd favourite setup, it has to be mentioned that the Butterfly Innerforce Layer S is a great blade, beautifully made, and probably just the thing for someone out there. However, I would recommend comparing this to Viscaria or even Joola Rosskopf Emotion when trying it out. Total weight with T80 is 183g.
