Additional Information

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.

My first racket. It seems I came across a good batch, because it's high quality made even though Hungarian and not Japanese. It's the best selling Butterfly blade for a reason - very well balanced - it's 90g but not top heavy, very comfortable handle, good control, good speed, feeling is pleasing. Cheaper than most other 5-ply all wood blades but also better than most of them. I've heard they went down in quality post 2015. Mine is 15 years old and a keeper. I would say it is the best blade to begin with and reach intermediate level.

My first serious blade.
Very good touch and not too fast, something like ALL+ or OFF- but can go faster if paired with fast tensor rubbers.
This is a very well built 5 ply all wood blade and it is perfect for new, intermediate and advanced players that favour control over speed.
The handle is confortable and I used the flared version for many years. Even after many years and the ocasional hits on the table the blade is still in perfect condition. Needs to be sealed to prevent chips of wood coming off when changing rubbers.
An absolute classic by Butterfly.

First impressions are that butterfly have a cash cow in this blade. Quality of top ply wood is average for a Chinese blade less than half its price. Not as the earlier models in quality and finish but I guess those are more comparable to the current Hadrow range of wooden blades. After 3 month's use I have come to appreciate why it is so popular: its speed, touch and handling is just right for most situations. Most intermediate players would benefit from abandoning the super stiff and fast carbon bandwagon and try one of these classic limba limba ayous all wood combos.

Review by allanedpao (Verified Customer) for Butterfly Primorac on June 16, 2015
I give the primorac 5 stars all the way. It is a great control blade that can still be used for attacking with powerful loops and drives depending on your rubbers. Additionally, it also has great touch whenever I need to play defensive by either chopping, pushing, and blocking. The primorac performs very well, and it is my go to blade when playing at the clubs. I put Razka X on my FH and Razka 7 soft on my backhand, which provides me with enough spin and speed to beat most of my intermediate competitors. In my opinion, this is a great blade for all levels of players from beginners, intermediates, and even semi-pros. Get this a great blade to refine your TT techniques and beating your opposition in matches.

on market there are hungarian copies of this blade , they are different from original...but good enough for beginers..
as a beginer i played with joola k5 - primorac feels little bit stiffer, but thats in average category, and i had oportunity to use primorac in combination with sriver fx and with brice fx.. brice was to bouncy for me in that moment... its great for begginers, most of the beginers use primorac, in combinations with yasaka mark v, with rakza 7 soft, even sriver fx . for short game its great, ibut if you whant to win with topspins u will be in problem, against good blokers..

 External Review for Butterfly Primorac on June 6, 2014
I've played with this blade for 2 years now and was/am really happy with it. It can do just about anything. VERY reliable. Other than that it doesn't excel in anything in particular also. after testing some rubbers, I used Joola xplode sensitive for the backhand and the Donic Acuda S2 for the forehand. it's is a very good combination. I would recommend this to people with beginner or intermiediate attackers or to allrounder. A bit head heavy. comfortable handle with good finish. best value for the money out there!!!

Heard so much about this blade being the benchmark of 5 plys so I ordered it with an Anatomic handle and waited ages for it to arrive from inters pl. Club mate uses an old one and can't find anything to replace it with. The new one I got is nothing like the old one. In a nutshell it was no great shakes but I may not have got a good one. Weighed a respectful 85 grams.
