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.

Super fast and sending long trajectory balls.

The shoulders are quite narrow, so while doing counterloop from far, slightly gliding index finger up toward head will reduce excess vibration.

Ratings for 89g. I have used Timo Boll ZLC blade for about 1 year. I have found that Tenergy 05 2.1 on both sides is a rocket on this blade. I recommend using thinner sponge. The blade is a little stiff and hard: the materials are Koto outer, ZLC 2nd, Limba 3rd and Ayous core. This blade is between 89 and 91 grams depending on humidity. It is very direct when blocking or smashing. The top gear is very fast even with slower Nittaku Hurricane Pro 3 Turbo 1.6 and Spin Art 1.9 rubber. The low gear is not a problem with tacky rubbers, but non-tacky rubbers can bounce off too quickly. Every time I think I am good enough for a faster blade I play with this and then switch back to my trusted Timo Boll ZLF.
