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 Viscaria (83)
A very good blade! I always try some other blades but always come back to Viscaria.
The only downside is the small and sharp handle. First I tried to sand it but it didn't help. So I put couple layers of overgrip on it and it became normal for me. BTW Dhs Gold Arc 8 plays excellent on Viscaria max on forehand and med thickness on backhand.
This blade is very all-round. Fast, spinny, and very good for backhand flick and backhand topspin attack. It is suited for counter attack style close to mid distance, but not for beginners.
This review of the Butterfly Viscaria is based on it being my 3rd paddle after Stiga Allround Classic WRB and Stiga Evolution previously.
I specifically requested for the lightest available Viscaria blade and was given one which is at 83g. I think others may prefer the heavier ones but this one is just right for me. Paired with Butterfly Rozena 1.9 on both sides, the paddle feels pretty light and well-balanced (not top-heavy). The thicker and more squared handle also creates a better and more comfortable grip. This allows for easier transitions between forehand and backhand strokes.
The blade produces a good amount of vibration that somewhat allows you to feel the ball, similar to my previous paddles. It is also definitely a faster blade given the lesser effort required to produce the same ball speed.
I've fallen in love with this setup from the very first time I've held and played it as it delivered what I was looking for in terms of weight, comfort, feeling, speed and spin. This is by far my favorite and most balanced paddle setup yet.
Forehand: DHS Hurricane 3, Backhand Yasaka Rakza 7. The blade has a very nice woody feel and quite a lot of vibration, I find the blade very controllable with enough speed to win the point outright. Touching short is almost effortless due to the hard sponge of the Hurricane 3, aggressive forehand and backhand flicks can usually be an outright winner, serving is also a dream if you can keep a flexible wrist. This is by far my favorite and most balanced blade I've tried.
Viscaria, it's a blade between the balance of speed and control, also became popular when 2012 Olympics Champion Zhang Jike started using, I found this blade from a gift of my friend, Bryan, it came at a cool package , at first forehand topspin,it is not as fast as Timo Boll ALC but it has more control on the blade, you have a safety when you're doing forehand topspin, Counter Topspin is easily done for its high control,I am using Neo Hurricane 3 provincial Orange sponge on my forehand which is 2.1mm thick and at a degree of 40,when I am topspinning, the blade gives you a lot of dwell time so you can control the ball,Hurricane grips the ball well,and when timing great,you can generate a ridiculous amount of spin and sonic speed, Secondly, Backhand topspin, this blade is for Zhang jike so it must be very great for backhand, I am a backhand topspin player too, like Ovcharov, Zhang jike,I like to use backhand to dominate the opponent,this blade is a super useful for backhand,you have lots of control and the ball will go wherever you push or attack,I am using Dignics 05 2.1mm on my backhand,it grips the ball and can generate so much spin and speed, the ball comes at a low to medium trajectory so it is hard for people to block, At last, Blocking, this blade is a balance between speed and control, so you can easily block, but for me I don't usually block,I like to counter attack close to the table. This is my review of the Butterfly Viscaria. Thanks for watching.
Very good blade with medium feeling and control. Handle is thinner than standard size, recommended to use grip tape for big hands. Pair it with medium soft rubbers (t05 if boosted). Rakza 7 soft is too fine.
I'm fairly new to table tennis - about 2 years of self teaching and i just started training with a coach. I had a Yasaka Sweden Extra with 2xT05 and i decided to switch to Viscaria. Best decision of my life! The spin and control i get is mind blowing! I also love the feedback i get when playing - it almost feels like the sound and feel of clicking on an old school mouse.
Ratings for 88g. Fairly fast and hard blade. It's koto, alc, limba, kiri, 5.8mm. Other blades like this are Timo Boll Spirit, Timo Boll ALC, Zhang Jike, Treiber K. They have different handles.
here is my honest review of this blade i am updating , this blade has a low throw, it crispier in feel i can make the ball slow or fast everything is possible with blade you name it spin, chop, BH,FH, smash but the handle on this blade is a minus point plus the size of the blade had to be half cm. extra which is ok , I changed the handle on the viscaria ,changing is very easy dip the handle part in boiling for 10 minutes and slide through the handle with a sharp knife slowly it comes, clean and then apply which ever handle is flexible. i changed the handle, a long flared one to my surprise it works perfect better than the original handle i am using Dhs Skyline TG 3 on the FH & Dhs hurricane on BH the quality on my shorts have increased and the speed is getting better day by day
Hi i am looking for a new blade. I do more offense and looking for better control blade. With a medium hard. I am an intermediate player. I am still confused to pick either viscaria , primorac carbon? And i also tempted ZJK super Alc, which might not proper for Budget wise and intrrmdiate plyrer like me. So i need input for me. Really appreciated
Using it with Tenergy 05 on both side a lot of control and speed.
I love it.
My journey to decent beginner took me from a Primorac all-wood blade to Viscaria. The transition has been completely seamless, using T05 on both blades. The way Viscaria is usually described it is quite daunting dabbling in ALC blades as a beginner, but Id argue I have much better feel and even better flex than when using blades like Yasaka Sweden Extra and Primorac.
This blade feels and sounds like this would be the blade all other blades were spawned from. Everything just feels right and as expected. Using Ternergy 05 on both sides against Amicus Prime I can do fast forehands and backhands all day long with incredible consistency. The carbon kicks in at just the right time, and you can often feel the flex very clearly, much better feedback than any wood blade Ive tried.
The weight and balance is perfect. Ive had better handle fits on other blades (Innerforce Layer S) and the design is super dated.
I now use this blade exclusively even though addiction has taken me through a bunch of other blades - Primorac (T05), Stiga Rosewood XO (MXP), Carbonado 45 (Mantra M), Innerforce Layer S (T80), Joola Rossi Emotion (H3neo), Infinity VPS V (Genesis IIs). Total weight of my Viscaria with T05 is 171g (my lightest non-balsa bat).
Very fast blade, not so soft like People describe it here. Good dwell time, but with medium soft rubbers. Good control and High arc on loops.
Plies: 7 (5 Wood + 2 Composite)
- 2 * Koto 0.5mm
- 2 * ALC 0.25mm
- 2 * Limba 0.5mm
- Kiri 3.3mm
Sufficient speed, sufficient control, a bit stiff. Stable but had little vibration compared to all wood.
This blade needs lot of power to play.
very slow in my perspective. prefer the timo alc blade.
THE blade, even after all these years. Works perfect with every kind of rubber, backhand is great.
The only blade on the same level is DHS301, but while the DHS301 is a lot more focused and delicate close to the table, making serves, serve return and touch much sweeter, the Viscaria doesn't lose power when backing from the table, and is just seriously powerful.
