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.

The best blade for modern defender. No vibration and consistent for chopping far from the table. The weight is a bit more than normal blade but it will not affected the fundamental of your defensive style.
Llevo tres mese usandola y me a enamorado. Una gran madera con muy buen control en tospin y cortando desde atrs. Uso tenergy 05 1.9 mm en la derecha y va genial.
El problema viene en el revs, estoi usando la grass d tecs 0.5mm y va rpida.poco control y el bloqueo es dificil, sale disparada. Conocis alguna goma de picos que encaje perfectamente en esta madera?
I've used this blade for a year and a half now. The weight of the blade I got is 102gr. I know, it's very heavy. The guy from our t.t. club got the same blade, but the weight of his was 91 gr. So, be aware of occasional variations. The Joo Se Hyuk blade is oversized and when paired with heavy rubbers like DHS Hurricane NEO 3 (max) + long pips with sponge will make it physically demanding to play with such heavy racquet. If you want to get this blade make sure to be physically very fit, otherwise you won't like it. If you play classical defense with this blade you will be disappointed, because this blade will not give you that feel of the ball you're looking for. It's a stiff blade that gives you some vibration when you loop with it. Though, control is good and there's enough power to chop and effectively loop away from the table. I found this blade to be very consistent when smashing and attacking close to the table as well. INVERTED RUBBER that proved to be consistent on this blade are: 1)Butterfly Tackiness Drive 1.9mm, 2)DHS Skyline NEO TG2 (max), 3)DHS Hurricane NEO III (max). All these rubbers gave me ability to chop and attack very effectively from any distance. The weight of this blade became a problem when I put DHS rubbers, though I have to admit my chops and loops became mega spiny!!!
When it comes to LONG PIMPLES, TSP Curl P1-R (1.2mm), DHS Cloud & Fog III (1.0mm), worked awesome on this blade.
All in all, Joo Se Hyuk is a very good blade that will make happy most of the Modern Defenders that are very well physically fit. Otherwise, you're risking to put this blade aside and use something lighter with similar properties.
NOTE: due to resent change in rules and policies to a new plastic ball, heavier blades and physical conditioning will be priority number one among t.t. players. So, I think Joo Se Hyuk blade will find many admirers for that reason.
a Defensive Master Sword of Omen! . . . Dangerous Effect when you installed Defensive type of Rubbers and Pips.
To be clear here... this is a FAST defensive blade!
It's essentially an over-sized offensive setup. Very hard, very stiff.
If you're used to playing with any of the slower defensive blades (donic defplay, matsush*ta, xiom aigis, etc.), then be prepared for a real shock! This plays very little like those.
Not to say anything negative about the Joo blade. I simply want to inform potential buyers of what to expect. If you attack more than you chop or about break even, then this blade will probably work for you. If you enjoy doing opening loops and having enough fire power to drive back even the most stalwart attacker... this will do!
If you prefer doing classical defense and chop, chop, chop all day long -- then you might want to look elsewhere. The Joo blade sacrifices some control for a more potent offensive gear. Blocks well also as a result. Stiff! Relatively heavy blade by itself, coupled with the over-sized frame, and you can imagine how heavy it will be with dense rubbers. For reference -- the Joo blade with Tenergy 05 fx on both sides weighs in at about 198 grams. Now you can see why they generally use pips on one side of this! :p
It is no exaggeration to say that Joo Sae Hyuk blade is the ultimate blade for the defender if we take in to account the different models available in the market today from various brands. It is one of the best, if not the best, available today. It is hard and fast. It has practically no flex. It needs these properties to help the defender to attack or top spin when necessary. First let us look at the pimple rubbers part. It pairs very well with TSP Curl P 1 R 0.5 / 1.0 + long pimple rubber. Another popular choice of defenders, Feint Long II also matches well with this blade. Depending on the comfort level one should choose the fore hand rubber and the sponge thickness for the same. It is always better to start learning with the best rubbers in the business, the defender friendly tensor rubbers in near max sponge thickness. Andro Hexer and Tenergy series rubbers were found to be OK. This blade seems to excel in the long range defense when compared to its use in the short range or close to the table blocking. Joo Sae Hyuk is very good in generating low flat path cut balls or chops close to the table or from a distance on either the back hand or the fore hand. In this business this blade is simply great. Joo Sae Hyuk is not the best choice for the close to the table OX pimple blocking strategy. There are superior options for that. One can control the short game very well with the Joo Sae Hyuk blade and it is purely a matter of practice. It is certainly an improvement over the Diode blade in many ways. Diode itself was a great defensive blade. One just needs to find right rubbers for that. There are no warping issues with the JSH blade. This blade is very durable. It is a heavy and expensive blade. You would not regret the investment you made in this masterpiece once you master this weapon. Good luck!!
Wow, I mean, just wow. Butterfly Joo Se Hyuk is one of the perfect blades for all Defenders. I paired this with a Donic Gallardo Sound, and a certain DHS pips (I don't remember the name) and brings out an extremely awesome feeling when you close up a point with a simple topspin drive stroke. It gives a smooth stroke to every chop you make, but you need to be picky for your corresponding rubbers. I recommend long pips, not short pips on this one.
I loved JSH ST. I gave an overall 8 because the blade is just way too heavy. I've tried 2 in the past, they were 108g and 103g. Well, you can use LP OX on one side to keep it light, but still a little too much after about an hour of chopping and looping.
This blade is very tricky, it is slow when using DHS H3 NEO, and fast when paired with a fast rubber.
For testing purposes, I used YinHe M2, 37 deg (I love M2 37, it's got a sticky surface and great speed) for FH, and Pogo LP OX for BH. Hitting and looping was a breeze. Since it is a heavy blade, there is no need to chop harder than just an easy/smooth BH chop.
Overall, this is an excellent choice for the choppers. I would use it if it is not so heavy.
This is high quality blade.
Very easy to chop and loop with.
In order to get maximum benefits from this blade player MUST BE in excellent physical shape to move a lot, otherwise you will change this blade for a blade that is slower and softer.
JSH blade is excellent to play far from the table.
I'm using this blade with:
FH: Yanus DF 1.5mm
BH: Octopus 1.2mm (LP)
This combination works amazing for me.
I went up with this blade blade from 1700 to 2200 for the period of 11 months only.
I highly recommend this blade for a modern defender.
