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.

After using Andro for more than a year and a half, I decided to move to one of Butterfly's blades for the upcoming year. Out of all the options, The Timo Boll ALC caught my eye the most out of all the options. You cannot go wrong when people tell you that this is one of the best blades out there. The speed, the spin, the control are very balanced and this blade is an absolute monster if your technique is on point.
It is a fast blade which is very effective at medium/far table range where you get the most value for shots. At close range, the blade is good for flicks and both FH/BH Top spin loops from backspin. This blade is not meant for beginners/intermediate players and I would recommend anyone with good technique to go for it. I use Tenergy 05 on my FH and 05 FX on my BH for much more feel/control on blocks and loops from my BH. Definitely would recommend to any advanced level player who is looking at an upgrade.
I have to say the TB ALC is by far the best bat I’ve ever owned. I love my Viscaria, but found the handle a bit uncomfortable. If you’re deciding between these two great bats, I highly recommend hitting some balls with each, maybe using a friend’s, before buying. I had T05 1.9 mm on my Viscaria, but opted for 2.1 mm T05 on my forehand and 2.1mm Dignics 80 on the backhand. The simplest way to describe this setup is “effortless” power, a counter top spin machine! I found the video review with Dan & Timo Boll to be true. The quality of all my attacking shots has improved, but to my surprise, I’ve gained control! Also, I was most concerned that my short game would suffer, but no, I have more touch! I make less errors when pushing and my opponents make more! Surprisingly, I think some of that is the thicker sponge, and I really like the Dignics 80. I feel it gives me more control and feel- especially on backhand flicks and pushes. Note, this rubber also performs well on the forehand, maybe even more spin and speed than 05 based on feedback from my mates. I do like the softer sponge of 05 for close to the table looping though - more dwell. In summary, this bat has unlocked new levels of play for me and I plan on using it for years to come. It’s a blast to play with! I highly recommend it to players once they start counter looping, but feel under horse powered against faster bats.
First of all, it was a nice experience dealing with Megaspin. They were very efficient. Being a Primorac blade fan and user, i was bit skeptical but TB ALC is a very comfortable blade. I have the anatomical handle, beautifully crafted, great feeling and easy adaptability. Tenergy80 on FH and Xiom Vega Europe on bh. Execellent balance, easy top spins, blocks, chops, counter attacks. Everything comes together. Of course a good stroke and footwork helps. I used this setup to play in the ittf veterans tour and landed a couple of shining metals.
