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 Primorac Carbon - Chinese Penhold (53)
Ratings for 88g. One of the fastest blades out there. The speed is unbelievable with something like mx-p, hard to see the ball. Very stiff, but some softness from outer hinoki ply.
more controllable than sardius. Rakza 7 forehand and donic bluestorm backhand. Can do loops and is fast.
Plies: 5 (3 Wood + 2 Composite)
- 2 * Hinoki 1.2mm
- 2 * Tamca 0.25mm
- Kiri 4mm
A dependable blade. Can mix with different rubbers. Works well with soft to medium rubbers. Very good quality, worth a investment.
A little control, but a beast who is hard to tame. I don't recommend this blade. Too fast and constant overmiss
Despite being a little hard, and having high speed, It also has some decent control, because of it's outer hinoki layers. Average dwell time, medium throw angle, It is good for hitting, placing the ball with velocity. Pair It with good spinny rubbers, train your movements, and you'll have a great racket.
Powerful blade, not for spin only for power. Put slower rubbers to tame the beast. May be not the best but for sure it is a real pleasure to play with this blade.
Great blade for offensive game, but requires the appropriate training as with all the fast blades! Control is higher in my opinion than 7.3 which is the average here. Shots are super powerful from any distance, either top spins or smashes and it's really enjoyable from big distance! You can make super fast strokes from 3+ meters away from the table and feel like a pro :) So many players used this blade all these years for a reason!
I find this blade to be very ergonomic, it really fits the average size hand well, easy to maintain your grip for hours without chiseling into the side of your finger. Now about the speed - I honestly can't say its any faster than my other cheaper OFF blades (Stiga, Donic), BUT just like my other carbon blades the drive shots are very direct, as straight as an arrow, but my observation that this is attributable to the carbon technology rather than a speed effect. I gave it 4 stars because it cost a lot and does not deliver any noticeable additional speed compared to blades costing $50, in which case it would definitely deserve full 5 stars. My advice is to prioritize carbon for your blade at a lower price and if possible feel the grip before you purchase because we are all slightly different and this is crucial to your long term satisfaction, if you know a model fits your hand well, stick with it! when looking for speed - just choose a fast rubber like Tenergy and you will be satisfied regardless of the price of your blade, and yes, I have verified this for myself.
the blade is very ergonomic, light weight, sits sweetly in the hand, the speed will not blow you over unless you put a high tension rubber on it, big mistake, otherwise I'm not terribly impressed with this blade, i don't think it should cost so much and I would not buy at this price again because after using the same various rubbers (different types, brands and technology) on much cheaper and slower rated CARBON Stiga and Donic blades, i think the rubber is the real key and not the blade. I do want to be clear that ANY carbon is WAY better, no doubt, shots are much more direct and the ball keeps a straight line until it drops, but in the end, my favorite blade is my Stiga procarbon because as cheap as it is, the sweet spot is HUGE! so yes, carbon magic is real folks
This blade is fast and made for blocking. Omega tour V on forehand and Fastarc G1 on the BH makes a splendid combination. Shorter time to react but only need to adjust on the trajectory of blade angle and all is a piece of cake. Hard and stiffer than gergerly carbon.. A formidable and must try blade.
First blade that I have used , one thing about this blade is fast and yet too fast for flicks and I have been using I for 2 years , flick shots often miss in my backhand and drive shot also inaccurate sometimes you need to do something about the angle . I recommend slow to medium speed rubbers and do not even think about placing high tension rubber or you just regret it later . Block is fine however placement shot is poor .
Very very fast. Sometimes I think I don't need too fast like this to beat my enemy. FH T05, BH T80. Top spin perfect, block fast, smash is unbeatable cause the enemy would not see the ball coming. Sometimes back spin not good. Need practice hard to control. Not recomend for beginner.
This is my third blade. The specified weight was 88g. I asked for 86g but Butterfly sent me 90g.
The angular FL grip was originally larger than my liking, but I sand it to a very comfortable size. This is my favorite grip of all.
It took a while to get used to the speed especially with fast rubber like Friendship Aurora/the combo was too soft and springy especially due to the blade's very soft top layer+the softness of Aurora. You can easily mark the blade's surface with your finger nail. Then I decided to switch it to Hurrican III FH & Yasaka Mark V on BH. This is a very good combination. With the grippy H3 rubber, the blade is somewhat loopable and the Mark V on the back hand is good. I like to hit hard and this blade has very good control when you hit hard. it's rock solid, fast, & also very consistent. You need to face down the blade more due to it's very fast speed. The shots are fast and deep. The blade is pretty stiff when you smash the ball, it hardly flexes, but on the other hand you have a very soft surface and you get a pretty nice, soft feel without much vibration when hitting the ball. very unlike the ratings here. Very good combination of stiff structure + soft contact feel. I pref!
er to use harder & grippy rubbers on this blade for FH & med on BH.
Update 6/1/15: I took the Vega Pro 2.0 from Stratus Powerwood and put on this blade FH and boy what a difference did that make. Vega Pro used to be kind of slow & high throw on Powerwood but is now a looping monster and lethal weapon with Primorac Carbon! Loops are extremely fast, low & curvy. Vega Pro is a hard rubber and felt a bit too hard on the limba surface of the Powerwood but seems pretty ideal & rock solid on P/C. When I whip the balls with top/side spin my opponents had a hard time returning my bullet fast looping shots. It is very fun & it kicks butts. With the right rubber & my improved technique the Primorac is now truly a formidable weapon for me.
