Light Heavy – All-wood shakehand blade – Shakehand blade with artificial fiber – All-wood penhold blade – 1-ply Hinoki – Penhold blade with artificial fiber Butterfly only uses Hinoki wood cut from trees over a hundred years old which grew on the northern side of the inclined plane of the Kiso Mountains, an area where trees are subject to less harmful rays from the sun. The wood grain is of vital importance for the Hinoki blade, a dense grain produces a good bounce. Butterfly Blade Weight Features of Materials for Blade – The weight of blades differs according to condition in humidity and temperature. – The numbers are based on the research conducted by the Butterfly Research and Development Department through February 2022. Carbon (Tamca-5000) is strong and light: six times stronger and one fifth in weight compared with iron and steel. Blades using Tamca-5000 are light and strong with high elasticity and enable high performance. ZL-Fiber has a detailed molecular configuration that is strong and elastic. Its ratio is 10 percent lower than Carbon fiber, thus making the blade both light and with a high performance level. CA-Fiber is a special material derived from wood. As it is very flexible, it helps to hold the ball which offers a higher level of control. Additionally, the tensile strength is high so there is also good speed. Arylate-Carbon is an artificial fiber that is a combined weave of Arylate and Carbon. Arylate features excellent vibration dampening, whilst carbon provides high reaction properties. Blades equipped with this artificial fiber material allow players to generate speed whilst maintaining ease of use due to the fiber’s suppleness. ZL-Carbon is a woven combination of Carbon fiber and ZL-Fiber: Carbon fiber has a high reaction level and ZL-Fiber provides strength, elasticity and lightness. ZL-Carbon, the super fiber, gives the blade a high level of performance. Extra fine fibers obtained by finely loosening plant fibers such as wood to nano size (1 nm is 1/1,000,000 of 1 mm). Its feature is the lower vibration property which brings the feeling of holding the ball to the blade despite of the high bounce. Super ZL-Carbon has densely woven Carbon-Fibers and ZL-Fibers in mass, as the existing ZL-Carbon by using special technology. The remarkable reaction and control provided by the expanded high-reaction area has taken the blade to the next stage. Super Arylate-Carbon achieves a higher bounce by weaving in a larger amount of fibers than conventional Arylate-Carbon. In addition, adjusting the ratio of Arylate and carbon materials maintains blade suppleness which is a characteristic achieved via the use of Arylate-Carbon.
