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 Petr Korbel (58)

So so slow blade, I would say as slow as primorac japan. I think there are much better alternatives in given price range.

Slow blade with great feel. Favours the players who have a looping game from mid to long distance. The shot quality is slow, so make sure to imply more spin and prepare for a long rally. Hard rubbers are recommended for this blade and very manageable for beginners and elderlies with poor footwork.

I played for several years with my trusty Primorac OFF- blade but decided to upgrade to something a little faster. Went for the Japanese Korbel OFF blade. I specifically opted for a lighter blade, as I like the agility and control it provides over sheer power. My Korbel is 85.8 grams with Tenergy 05 FX 2.1 on both sides. At first I though I made a huge mistake - it sounded a bit hollow and I felt some vibrations through the handle. My Primorac is an old one - from the early 2000s, a European version, I guess I got lucky with that blade.

However, after two sessions I got accustomed to the Kobel and now think it's a superior blade. Yeah, it does sound a bit hollow, but it's faster and offers more control. All in all, very solid blade. Bear in mind that Japanese Korbels have smaller handles and larger heads, and tend to be head-heavy. If you want a faster Korbel, opt for a 90+ gram blade, as the wood is denser and stiffer.

Guys, this blade (made in Japan version) is pure magic. I'm a low intermediate, both wings looper (fh and bh). I have been using Viscaria for 2 years with a lot of satisfaction. Viscaria is also an exceptional blade, fast with great feeling and control. After an injury, my legs are slower and if you're out of position Viscaria doesn't forgive that much. Thus, I was looking for something more forgiving. I've always been told about the magical of this blade, speed with great control and feeling: recently a good tt coach suggested me to try it, and given the injury, finally I went for it. I was looking for something only a tad slower than Viscaria but with more control and feeling: Korbel delivers!!!
Looping is a pure joy, I feel very solid and safe, but still I can make very powerful shot; yes it's slightly slower than Viscaria but you have enough power to finish the point. Both fh and bh loops are great but Viscaria has an edge about fast bh plain shots (slightly faster) and bh opens against backspin (slightly more powerful and precise). Nevertheless, you exchange the great precision and power of Viscaria with something only slightly less precise and powerful but with a bigger amount of control, feeling and consistency. The spin is on par with Viscaria. On serves, you have great control, still a lot of spin: I always struggled to make fast serves down the line with Viscaria, but now I feel it's very easy and effective to do.
I use Andro Hexer Powergrip SFX on fh and Hexer Grip on bh (yes I prefer slower rubber on fh), same as I used on Viscaria. Great rubbers and great combination with Korbel.
The euro version is nothing like the japan version, please stay way from it.
I think the average ratings on revspin don't give justice to this exceptional blade. I would rate it as 8.8 for speed and 9.1 for control.
