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.

I asked for the lightest blade with anatomic handle and it weighs 85.9g measured 5.5mm thick. Has very beautiful patterns and quality. Razka 7 soft is suitable for both sides, but I have it on FH & Razka 7 on BH. The feel is not too hard at all with very little vibration when hit hard due to the T-5000 carbon absorbing most of the vibrations. The speed is very fast. equal to Primorac Carbon. but slightly slower & not as bouncy as my JMSZLC but faster than Zhang Jike SZLC. This blade can produce the most spin among all of my blades that maybe equal or better than the JMSZLC. It can do all kinds of shots: touch shot over the net, slow, or fast loops, flicks underspin. I adjusted to it within 20 minutes. The T-5000 carbon works great on a thin blade like this with perfect blend of speed/control/spin. I think the biggest disadvantage of this blade is the lack of dwell and less feel from the carbon. Here is the summary of my review:
Speed=9.6. Control=8.5. Spin=9.5. Feel=8(solid & without vibration), Flick=easy. Flex=6.5. Hardness=6. Balance=good. AN grip=nice shape but small. Dwell=avg-. Smash, flat hit & Drive=excellent. Throw=med. Serve=excellent. Sweetspot=huge. touch shot=excellent. Overall=9.3
Been using for less than a year. It is an awesome powerful blade, good with tibhar mxp forehand and xiom omega v.
This blade is simply incredible. It has an ultra crisp contact, and with an ST handle it fits like a glove. I really don't know why others complain about the control, with spin art on both sides the placement was impeccable, and the spin was great, the ball's fly arc was perfect, I also use a ZJK Super ZLC, and this will make shots that would go into the net with the ZJK, as the arc on it is much lower. This however is a wonderful blade for the highly offensive player.
Very fast blade. Use it with tibhar evolution mx-p rubber. It fit my game well
Its really fast blade and not for everyone u should have good footwork...i use t05 on fh and t05fx on bh ... u can loop , smash, if you have good feel u can chop, it is fast, but control is great.. for short play its bouncy so it need training to get used to it..flicks are easy,throw angle is high, but not to high , and topspins are fast, not crazy fast.. there are faster blades, like kilerspin diamond c , off ++(+) from dhs...
, so if u feel that tbs or alc and other off blades are slow for u, u should try it...u can give nice spin on serves..
if you dont train few years with good trainer then dont even think about it...it doesnt feel to stiff and hard , it has nice feel...
one of the best blades that i used..
speed is simular to samsonov carbon, little bit faster, with harder feel and more control , little bit higher throws...
a Good look and Green Grips which i like! :D
But this Blade is nearly a fail.
Its fast but theres no Good Control, a Bad Ball Feeling Bad Touch and it performed Strange!
There are better blades on the market for Sure.
I think they just producer it to Finish the Boll blade series!
That failed. What a Pity that such a Good Looking Blade in green can be so poor.
And its expansive too!
Guys, I would be buying this blade pretty soon. And I would like to put Bryce Speed Fx and Tenergy 64 on it. Do You think it's gonna be too hard? And is it appropriate For me? I have been playing for about 7months now. With a doomsday forehand. A well controlled spinny backhand. Super spinny serves. And I also loop. So if you guys think this is good. Pls reply to me.
butterfly's speed rating is wrong. .. this is not a 10 speed blade. much less much controllable. but not speed deficient.
being pure it has better feel than carbon-composite blades while looping and hitting, but the cost is a little springy in short game.
overall one of butterfly's best blades ..
im having this blade....And im using tenergy 64 as my forehand rubber and tenergy 05 as my bh rubber...this blade is very useful offensive players!!
This is uncompromising all-out power blade perfect for the power attacker. The Boll T5000 features a large sweet spot, hard feel, and produces tons of power for point winning loops and smashes. The Timo Boll T5000 is a perfect match for any of Butterflyâs new high tension rubbers.
First of all, this is one of the most beautiful blades that I have ever used. I would give the flared handle a 9/10 for comfortability, but the one point off is somewhat due to my rubber preference. I use Tenergy 64 MAX on both forehand and backhand and find this setup to be a powersetup like no other. I also have the Boll ALC with T05 MAX on FH and BH, but prefer this setup. The ALC is definitely superior in terms of looping, especially with T05, but I like the added power and perfect flex of this blade more. I use T64 because it is still a very loopable rubber, but has better control for straight smashes and close to table drives. This blade allows looping all day, but once you can work your opponent away from the table, you can close the deal with no problem with this gem. I feel this blade has more power, without control loss, than my Maze or Schlager Carbon. It has every element of an offense game you could want, and yet has the touch for defense if a point starts to go south. My personal favorite blade ever.
This is a blade for an totally aggressive player who wants to unleash his power with strong shots and hard topspins from middistance. But it`s not really controlled and not suitable for Top-Spins near the table!
