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.

Excellent wood. But does it only have an anatomical cable?

Great blade. I play with donic Bluefire m1 forehand and long pips backhand. Blade has tremendous control for chops and attacking long pips play. Great blade even for defenders.

Wonderful blade. Mine is 93 gr. FH DHS H8 and BH Rasant Beat. Topspin vs backspin on FH, Block and punch with BH quite easy. Speed/control ratio is extremely high. Can not miss any shot :)

Blade Size: 157x150mm. It is heavy, hard and stiff with no flex or vibration making blocking and chopping easy but on the other hand the dwell time is low and the feel of the ball is not great. Tensor/springy rubbers make the feeling worse and the game close to the net difficult. I use hard, heavy, tacky, Chinese rubbers because they increase the feel, control and they force me to improve my technique. Chinese rubbers disrupt the weight balance (becomes head heavy). It feels more balanced when you put Butterfly rubbers on it but is still heavy. Use Yasaka rubbers (Rakza 7 or Mark V HPS) if you want to keep the racket a bit lighter. Timo Boll Alc has more weight in the handle than the Spirit so head heaviness is less of an issue. Spirit is fast even far away from the table, if you have the right technique and physical strength. The flared handle is a bit slim and slippery on the upper part. I have changed rubbers 4-5 times and still no sign of splinters. Solid craftsmanship that can sustain a lot of hardship during training. With slow rubbers it behaves like a perfect all-round blade. With tensor rubbers it can be crazy fast. I would start with hard, slow, easy to control rubbers (like Mercury II) and, if needed, move to faster ones. Only suitable for players with good technique. Somewhat overrated and definitely overpriced. There are equally good Butterfly blades, like Petr Korbel and the Primorac, or Stiga blades, like Stiga Infinity VPS, at a 3rd of its price

One of the best blades,fast but not to fast,greta fot blocking and counter attack,loops great,short game good but need little bit of practice. Paired best with soft rubbers like T05 FX.

Review by druppel (Verified Customer) for Butterfly Timo Boll Spirit on February 16, 2017
Blade is very nice and performs as expected. it is well suited to close to the table and mid-distance OFF play, but has enough feel for defensive touch shots from anywhere. I have it paired with Tenergy 05 & 05fx which seem to be very well suited for aggressive play.

TBS w/ TO5....I think it's heavy. It's okay when only practicing but in a real match, it's not. Great touch but too slow for heavy blade.

Review by ge_force84 (Verified Customer) for Butterfly Timo Boll Spirit on October 26, 2016
the blade has an excellent control when using backspin chop but during topspin and flick shots you should adjust the position of your blade when hitting the ball or else you can't control it but overall it is an excellent blade because of its power when attacking the ball an it is also excellent when looping

Scope: 1400+ Player with Off- style. 1st custom bat (so not much to compare outside of what I was able to use within my club eg. TBZLC, Stradivarius, and some others). Rubber: Tenergy 05-FX

Overall First Impression: Nice size and weight (~90g), very well balanced. Adjusted very easily. I think the balance between Off (Speed, Spin) and Control allows the player to impose their style directly upon the racquet rather than the other way around.
Handle: I have slightly above average hands and thought the TBZLC was more comfortable. I ordered a butterfly grip tape for my TBS...huge difference, much more comfortable, and gave me a better grasp of the paddle (I even liked it better than the TBZLC without the grip tape, so overall I think if you have a normal hand size it should be fine, otherwise a little grip tape made a significant difference)

Speed: Slower than I thought for a a/c blade but again it allows you to control the shot without launching the ball. Don't read this to mean it is slow!, its just not as fast as the ZLC, which isn't necessarily a bad thing (Obviously the rubber you play with will make a difference). Great for close to table and mid distance. Looped well (work in progress so I cannot elaborate)

Spin: Again, just a well balance blade. With average stiffness and a medium hardness, your not going to be below or above par with the racquet alone. It will really depend on the rubber and style of play the one has.

Control: The above says it all! The balanced nature allows for a generally well controlled all around game

Overall: Great racquet to build a baseline from, especially if your starting out or upgrading (with an Off/All+ Style). Totally worth it and unless your switching from something specific (eg. a super fast or spinny blade and expecting that level of the same in TBS) you won't be disappointed! 9/10 (assuming a perfect blade doesn't exist)
