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.

Reviews of Butterfly Timo Boll CAF - Chinese Penhold (13)
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.
Forget it. Don't waste ur money. No power, no spin. If you just start playing table tennis may be it is suitable for you. But there are lots of better blade out there with cheaper price
I bought this blade by accident because the shop where I'm living do not have the blade that I supposed to buy :) Firstly, I'd so disappointed: It's soft, speed is so slow, like no sound when hitting the ball...i lost many points....However, after 2 weeks, I have found the strength of this blade and change my style of play. This blade is for looping, spin play with and controlling is so so good. This blade for short game. Last week, I won the game with the guy I used to loose. Paired it with FH RakzaZ, BH Rakza7 is the best for me. Cheap but good!
Paired the blade with Tenergy 25-FX (2.1). The weight of the blade when combining the rubber and side tape is 189 grams. Gives you the speed as needed with good control and the blocking is exceptional. Ball placement comes easy with nice touch and feel. When hitting hard the wood fiber kicks in. Very nice blade with it's own character (kinda special) and fun to play with. Handle fits very nice in hand. Very nice looking blade and would highly recommend.
