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.

Ratings for 88g. I have used Timo Boll ZLF blade for years with various rubbers on it: Tenergy, Spin Art, Rasanter and various Hurricanes. They all work well close to mid distance. I found that harder rubbers work better on this blade to provide extra gears away from the table when needed. The materials are Koto outer, ZLF 2nd, Limba 3rd and Kiri core. My blade fluctuates between 88 and 90 grams depending on humidity. This blade has no obvious downsides. I really like it.

Timo Boll ZLF is light weight and thin. I rate this blade as off- . It's speed is just a little faster than Korbel but slower than Timo Boll ALC. Being only 5.4mm thick you get some good flex but not too much due to the ZLF and Koto top ply. It is strange as you get a soft touch but when hitting or blocking you get that crisp Koto feel. Butterfly is right to label this as a looping blade. If you are looking to change from a 5ply all+/off- wood blade to a composite this is a great first choice.
