The Photino is a blade designed for the highest standards
It has been extensively tested by many of our contract professionals and
features Butterfly’s newest technical innovation, the use of ZL Fiber.
ZL Fiber is lighter in weight and harder than even Carbon.
At the same time ZL Fiber is more flexible than Carbon and holds the
ball a little longer, allowing for maximum spin to be created. The ITTF
has banded all glues with VOC’s as of September 1, 2008. Butterfly has
created the Photino for the modern topspin player looking for more power
in a future without fresh gluing.
