Butterfly Timo Boll Spirit reviews
One of the most highly regarded and popular blades from
Butterfly. A little too fast for beginners or developing players, but an
excellent blade for offensive players and power loopers, with good touch
in the short game and excellent power when needed.
The TIMO BOLL SPIRIT OFF stands for the „new middle“
in the class of offensive blades.
Carbon provides extreme hardness. Arylate with only 50% of the Carbon
amount is softer.
Compared to the CARBON OFF+ series this blade is an idea slower,
therefore with better feeling while the loss of energy at the contact
with the ball is minimal. And it is excellent for speed-gluing. Finally
on is not to forget that the blade is ten times more stable as normal
constructions. Altogether a very interesting offensive blade for modern
spin-based offensive play – and if close at heart a blade for a
lifetime. So the prize seeming quite high is surely worth it. Review by
Taisei Imamura, Materials expert, Butterfly.
I used to play with Samsonov Alpha and Rapid Soft Max
and Fair Chack for 3,5 years. For last year I have felt that it is not
hard enough for me and not fast enough. And I have bought Boll Spirit.
It is amazing very good balanced blade. I thought that it won't be
possible for me to play with it for several trainings but it has
unbelievable control so even my chops became better (it is one of the
weakest element in my technique). All my strokes became much faster and
lower with less affords. My backhand became very fast and accurate
(forehand was accurate and fast before but not it became much much
faster). I have found two very small minuses in this blade: 1) it forces
me to play active attacking game, but it is OFF so it was supposed to be
so 2) it is a little bit to heavy for my backhand ( i have used to very
light weight blades) so it forces me to play not so close to the table
to give my arm time to prepare to the stroke, but I think that after
several trainings it would be ok. As a conclusion perfect blade for OFF
play from different ranges and from both BH and FH. Serhiy Kravtsov
I will only recommend this blade to advanced players.
First of all, it is fast and doesn't have much feeling. It's outer Koto
plies gives you a crisp, clean, and fast counters and loops. Loops are
fast and don't dwell very long on the blade. The blade will feel very
different depending on which handle you get. Straight handles are the
heaviest compared to flared and anatomic. B/c of the weight difference
from the handle, the weight ratio will change the feel and control of
the blade. I found the straight handle to have better control b/c of the
heavier weight. In my opinion, if you're a newbie or around 1700 and
less, i wouldn't choose this blade. You're better off developing better
control for your game by choosing a slower blade and using proper
technique to generate power and speed. Daniel
