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 (75)
In the past i have tried many blades and honestly i have failed,
After many years of practice & playing i purchased the bty viscaria my setup was dhs hurricane 3neo on Bh & dhs hurricane 3 on the Fh after playing for 3 months i could not get a better hang of it though i liked the blade and i was doing serious errors it was the handle so i had my old wang liqin blade 5ply which i dismentaled and fitted to my viscaria ( a little carpentry work was required and it is easy) just put the handle for 8 minutes in boiling water it comes of quickly.)
To my surprise my game started to improve and become more deadlier ,i have a weak backhand though i hit the ball with confidence and i am surprised the ball comes on the table just like that ,topspins are with massive spin and the ball stays way to low ,bh flicks are outrageous and blocking is superb specially on heavy smashes & it is very flexible, chops are outstanding too ,later i changed my bh rubber to dhs hurricane 2 which is good and safe and speedy too because with the dhs hurricane 3neo the ball was going out and the loop was higher, for me this blade is now a beast specially when my opponents challenge,& viscaria is like oh yeah you want a peace of me than bring it up boy no mercy, on serious errors this blade is unforgiving, just go for it the best blade of all time
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.
Have been using this blade for little over a year now. FH is Hurricane 3 Provincial 39 Degree and BH Skyline 2 Neo 39 Degree. What I can say is that this is the most balanced blade I've used, doesn't feel top heavy at all like some of the other blades I've used (ie. Dynamix17).
The blade is great for looping or driving close to mid-distance, and the feel is a tad stiffer than lets say a PG7. This means that you get a boost in power without exerting 100% effort in shots. If you are at least an intermediate level player, the spin factor is definitely more important than speed for winning rallies. The counter looping is one of my favourite aspects of the blade. Paired with a harder rubber, you can really feel a solid connection every time. Blocking on BH is also especially easy.
My only contention with the blade is it doesn't pair especially well with the Skyline 2's low throw, so would not recommend it with this rubber. Hurricane 3 NEO for FH however is a must.
Also, the blade handle is a bit wide and can hurt sometimes. This is definitely my go to blade, will try this with H3 NEO and Tenergy 80 next. Feel free to email me questions. Cheers!
Wow what a blade,my game improved a lot, i tought it was my technique but i was the blade that make the diference, everithing is on a high level with this blade forehand, backhand, block, what a game i'm having,this blade is going to be a keeper
Long throw,feels head heavy. Powerful. Short game needs good technique. Needs awhile to break in.
damm this blade is perfect except for one thing... it's handle is very short for my hand..
For anyone considering a Viscaria i hope this helps. I have a Viscaria, Tim Boll ALC and a Tim Boll Spirit with Evoltion ELP on the forhand and FXP on the backhand, both max thickness. I play an attacking top spin game from mid and close distance.
The Tim Boll ALC is the fastest, more suited to mid distance, has good feeling but not very forgiving. It is quite direct with i would say a medium throw.
The Tim Boll Spirit is slightly slower than the TB alc, has less feeling but a bit more forgiving and seemed to work well both mid and close distance.. Again i would say a meduim through. But it felt dull due to lack of feeling.
The Viscaria......for me the right choice. Has great feeling, slightly slower than the other two, much more for giving, works both close and mid distance with a medium to high throw.
For me the Viscaria has more of a wood blade feel which i like, and for me the balance between speed and control is the best i have found to date. The blade is geared up for topspin attack. I would have liked to stay with a wooded blade but felt rather outgunned by carbon blades to for me the best option, unless anyone else knows different.
Just perfect use with the Baracuda for fh and tenergy-80 for bh. The sweet spot is quite large and it is effortless to hit the ball as you wish.
