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 - Chinese Penhold (17)

I bought the Butterfly Timo Boll CAF blade. Then I got Rozena on both sides. Think it was 1.9mm. With no other rackets to compare with I was pretty happy with the setup. My setup was pretty stable. Not crazy spin or speed. But it hit the table. Then out of nowhere I won a online competition by commenting underneath Anders Lind video on his YT channel. He is currently at the time of this writing ranked 29. So I won the very racket he played with where he won his first professional tournament. It got shipped and I have played with it now for 1-2months. Setup is: Donic original true carbon blade. Donic Bluestorm Pro. Donic BlueGrip C2. I was convinced it would be way too fast for me. Much harder to control. So here is my comparison between these 2 setups: Same total cost. Almost. There is nothing the butterfly rozena setup does better than this Donic setup. I have more control. More balls land on the table than ever. The spin is way better. I get the arch when looping so I plant the ball perfectly right over the net on the table.I can feel the ball way better. Rozena setup was almost straight shots. little spin. much slower. And despite all that more unstable. My game has improved by 10-15% over night with this new racket. My wife tried it too and she is also much better using the Donic setup. Now keep in mind I am talking about the complete setup. Its not really fair to compare rubbers on 2 different blades. Fair would be to put the Rozena on the Donic carbon blade and the Donic rubbers of the Butterfly Timo Boll CAF blade. Then test it all out. Now I have 1 issue with the Donic setup. Its HEAVY. The butterfly setup is light and I love that. why? Because I have an injury. However my little skinny wife have no issues with it. So its just me. Might be no problem for you too.

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.
