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 (57)
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.
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.
