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 (80)
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.
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
