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.

FAQ: Do Butterfly blades come pre-sealed?

All Butterfly blades come pre-sealed from the factory. There is no need to add blade sealing but you may if you require additional protection.

Reviews of Butterfly Timo Boll CAF (16)

Very nice blade.
It has great control, especially forhand loops are very consistent. Great control also in the passive game, very easy to block with. Speed is alright, definitely not a slow blade by any means, but not the fastest either. It has very good spin. It feels a bit hard on the short touches but has a awesome dwell time when looping.
I started training 3 times a week a year ago, so I'm not that advanced now but looking to improve as fast as I can. I think for that purpose its the right blade, thats why my coach said I should buy it. Fun fact : first training session I won against a player a league above me that I've never won against before. So all in all, great blade for intermediate offensive players.
Joola rhyzen cmd on both sides by the way.

This blade is special. And excellent when paired with rubbers with sufficient dwell time.

Its construction is 3W+2C (that is, not a typical 5W+2C) and the central ply is thicker compared to other blades of the same overall thickness. It means the blade is relatively stiff with higher catapult, shorter dwell time and low throw angle. The overall speed is similar to other Butterfly ALC blades but CAF differs in these other features. That's why people either love it or hate it. I use it with Tenergy 80FX on BH and Rakza Z on FH and I like it a lot. I was unable to play with it when paired with Dignics 05 and even Tenergy 80 as the dwell time was too short. The blade has great touch and no vibration when playing over the table, and enough gears (and admittedly, some vibrations) when looping hard. It is great for hard spinny FH loops down the line as the blade combined with a hybrid rubber make these shots fast and low. It has nice control and is fast enough for close to the table attacking. It requires rather compact strokes and not hitting late so it is not for those who play from mid-distance or far from the table.

This one has the worst of both worlds carbon and all wood. Vibration, lack of speed and not great feeling of spin. If you can afford it, get a good inner fibre ALC blade instead.

The blade must be very inconsistent in characteristics. I bought the blade after reading the glowing reviews here and noting some negative ones which I thought were suspicious but it turns out they were probably truthful as well. My impression of the blade is it is quite unforgiving for something that is supposed to be "may the best control in the market" according to Boll. My TB CAF blade has very little dwell, does not have the large sweet spot of composite fibre blades or as much vibration damping. It is as people say, sort of a hybrid between all wood and composite blades but in my opinion combines their worse characteristics instead of their best. It is Butterfly attempt at producing a blade that cost less than your regular ALC type blades to manufacture but still charge over $100 for it. The Garaydia ZLC which I bought at the same time, albeit at little over 2X the price has so much better control, is so much easier to play with and is such an excellent blade that I would consider it worth the money even though it is a BTY blade which normally means they are too expensive for what you get relative to the market.

This is fantastic blade. Awesome control, strong spin and decent speed. Very lightweight. Very comfortable play on all distances and aspects of the game. Paired it with dignics 09c on both sides. Previous setup was japan primorac and rakza z on both sides. Timo Boll CAF gives me more control, more speed/spin and quality/accuracy of shots from first training session with my coach. Blocking is effortless. Considering price and quality of this blade ill give it 10 of 10. Perfect way for transition from all-wood to more modern style. Its kinda weird that this beauty has such low rating at revspin.
