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 (93)
This blade can do everything well! I love the crispiness of its backhand flick especially! It goes well with many different kinds of rubber - hard, fast, tacky, Euro/Jap, you name it. I tried Tenergy 05, Dignics 05, Hurricane 3 Neo, Sanwei Target National, Rasanter R37, Vega Asia, and a few others on it. Among all of them, Tenergy 05 matches the best. The relatively softer feel of the blade gives extra dwell time to spin the ball while the stiffness of ALC provides a direct feel when driving. Short balls are not as easy as all wood and inner carbon blades but that can be adjusted. The best part of this blade is its feedback to your fingers - not too much vibration and not too muted - just perfect enough regardless of hard or soft impact. To me, that separates a great blade from a good blade.
The blade I decided to stop trying others (straight handle). It's fast, light and solid. I use DHS H3 with Xiom Vega Pro.
very fast blade, yet still have a very good touch and control. One word to describe this blade is "balance", from the feeling to the weight. It's not head heavy like most blades, average weight is at 88g which make this very amateur friendly as well.
9.4/10 for OFF style. FH/BH: Butterfly Dignics 80, 2.1mm, 47g (0.23g/cm^2), 40 degrees (Shore A). Blade: Butterfly Viscaria, 88g, 157mm x 150mm x 5.8mm (Width x Height x Thickness). Plies: 7 (5 Wood + 2 Composite): Koto - ALC - Limba - Kiri - Limba - ALC - Koto.
Butterfly has decreased in quality and raised prices a lot, this Madero is not consistent, in principle it was made of 5.8 mm, and has varied to 5.5 mm and its sweet spot is narrow. I had michael maze arylate-carbon 6.0 mm with a wide sweet spot as they were made years ago. But the company by reducing costs lowers its warm and exaggeratedly increases its prices.
Butterfly ha bajado en calidad y subido mucho los precios no se condice este Madero, en principio estaba hecho de 5.8 mm, y ha variado a 5.5 mm y su punto dulce es angosto. Tuve michael maze arylate-carbon de 6 mm con punto dulce ancho como los fabricaban hace aos atrs. Pero la compaa por reducir costes baja su clida y aumenta exageradamente sus precios. El michael maze lo compre a 45.000 mil pesos chilenos y ahora un Madero como el maze vendra a ser un Marcos freitas que cuesta 160.000 mil pesos chilenos, demasiada diferencia de precios.
Purchased this blade before BUTTERFLY decided to raise & jump the prices up and glad I did. Got myself a very nice 86 gram Butterfly Viscaria blade and put Tibhar Evolution MX-P Max on both sides and I see the reason why the blade is very popular. First of all the flared handle is amazing and feels very comfortable in hand which is very important. The weight of the blade after adding the max rubber and side tape is 190 grams (not to heavy or not to light but perfect). The blade has a nice softer feel than most carbon blades but can explode with power when needed and gives you a sense of control when hitting. Blocking and ball placement comes easy. The blade plus EVOLUTION MX-P MAX can be as fast as you want it to be. Playing with this blade will definitely boost your confidence level whether winning or losing. Of all the Butterfly blades this one sits at the top of the chart and well worth the money spent. Not much more to say accept the gorgeous blade is deserving of 5 stars and a 10 and will definitely help you victimize your opponent. LOL!!! Give it a try.
I recently started using Viscaria blade with Xiom Vega Pro on FH and Joola Energy X-tra on BH. I was using these rubbers on TSP Balsa 4.5 which is ALL rated blade with speed of 7.5 on rev spin. Viscaria blade is OFF blade but it is not super-fast and has a wonderful control and feel for the ball. Hence have rated the speed as 8.0. The throw angle is medium-high and helps to top spin low backspin balls. With Viscaria I am able to play away from table with much more control and precision. The flat hits are fantastic as I am able to generate a lot of power. This is when the effect of ALC is felt.
The sweet-spot seems quite large which has helped a lot with my backhand loops.
Overall a FANTASTIC blade worth the high price. Highly recomended.
This is a tried and true blade used by a lot of players, and I've only grown to love it more as I've developed as a player. The best quality of this blade is its balance of power, control, and feeling - only bad technique can take away from these things for this blade. Of course, if your style is more extreme or you have very specific preference, it makes sense to use other blades, but for any developed, modern offensive style player, you really can't go wrong with it.
Brilliant blade for progressing players looking for a quick and controlled carbon blade
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
