      Amazing quality , Great sweet spot , tremendous spin. Best thing is the dwell time that produces high amount of spins in every stroke. Of course price is insane but the quality is amazing. Only negative for me is the speed. Too much to handle in my opinion .

      Unboxing
      The Mizutani Jun SZLC blade comes in a beautiful presentation box in the same colors as his signature blade. The color scheme of the handle has change to a more modern design compared to the old blade. The colors are still red and black but for distinguishing between the ZLC and the SZLC, Butterfly have added a yellow stripe on both sides of the handle for the SZLC and white for the ZLC. The logo has change to red and white showing his initials and on the other side of the handle there is indication that this blade is the SZLC.
      On the back of the handle on the newer versions there is a new green holographic sticker is placed for verifying counterfeit versions.
      The quality and finish is superb as always when you buy a Butterfly blade and it looks like a has a fine layer of sealing from the factory.
















      Composition: Limba-SZLC-Limba-Ayous-Limba-SZLC-Limba
      Handle: Flared
      Head size: 157x150mm
      Thickness: 5.8mm
      Weight: 94g

      Test setup: FH DHS H3 Neo 2.10mm and BH Tenergy 05 2.1mm

      Drive
      When driving with the MJ ZLC I could immediately feel that this blade was fast. Even faster than the normal ZLC and Viscaria! But having that said the blade also had an amount of feel and dwell that you normally don't experience when blades are that fast. I think this might be due to the outer limba layer combined with the SZLC. The Super Zylon-Carbon layer adds lightness, stiffness and flexibility to the blade. Another thing that was noticeable was the large sweet spot.

      Loop
      When looping with the MJ SZLC I had just adjust my power due to the speed of the blade. After a while I could hit the ball on the table. The balance between spin and speed was more to the speed side. When finding myself with the blade I could make some super powerful loops.The arcs with H3 was low to medium and with the T05 it is more medium. The balance of the blade was to the middle even though playing with heavy rubbers.

      Block
      In the passive game here this blade really shines! I could really feel that the blade gave a lot of control, stability and consistency due to the large sweet spot and the composition of Limba and SZLC. Still if I was a bit active on the ball the blade still felt controllable. Directing the ball where you wanted was spot on even on powerful incoming loops.

      Flick/short game
      As I mentioned earlier in the review the MJ SZLC has a lot of dwell which is due to the outer Limba. On service receive I was able to make some quality receives, but you should have a good touch due to the blade is very fast. Flicks is also made with good touch concentrating the brushing more than adding force to the ball.

      Conclusion
      Butterfly has made another signature blade for Jun Mizutani. The price is very high at 349.90 Euro (in Europe) and 373.99 USD (in US). So is it worth buying the SZLC?The SZLC is faster and stiffer than the normal ZLC. Also the design is just flawless. If you are looking for those features then, yes! But IMO the ZLC is an overall better blade due to it is more forgiving to playing with and of course the price tag!

      I would recommend the blade to players who focus on an offensive game with spin and speed and plays mid and away from the table. Also the player that favors the stability and consistency in their blocking and attacking game. If your money is unlimited and you are looking for features the SZLC provides, then this blade is for you!

      5.00 Tenergy blade lol
      RajaLoopah Reviews(16)
      • Feel and dwell
      • short-mid d game
      • Blocks and flick

      I bought this blade in 2014 looking to replace my Viscaria because I felt it lacks the speed and power.
      I was searching for a blade that has the control and dwell of the Visca yet faster than it. then came out this blade
      slapped a Tenergy 80 for fh and the fx version for the backhand. My wish was granted a fast blade with excellent feel and dwell
      a year later I changed rubbers and put 05 and 64 the hidden potential of this blade was revealed. The ball stays so long that I felt
      the spin produced by the 05 was amplified. My spins were golf balls and the 64 for backhand was the best in terms of blocking actively or passively.

      As my level improved due to experiences from National games I started to like the Mizu even more specially in counters and long table rally.
      Now I am using two 05's to compensate for the slower polyball. Still producing golfballs whether in the forehand or backhand side.
      Long table play,flicks,block and control in service is still the same. artillery in long table, crunchy flicks, stable blocks and Mizu like serve.

      PS. I changed my Mizu for Akrasia for some time buuuuuut eventually went back
      as it is more stable and my spins here is more consistent.

      Hey guys!
      Since February 2015, I've been using this flared blade with BTY Tenergy 05 on the FH, and Yasaka Rakza X on the BH.
      Once you see the packaging it comes in, it is very clear why it costs £280. There is a nice look to the blade, with the colour coordiantion making it very attractive & once holding the blade, it has a very comfortable feel (even if you adjust your grip for certain shots).
      Once rallying, you'll notice it has a very nice feel to it straight away and reminds me of the feel of the BTY Innerforce ZLC (somewhat stiffer but a fair bit faster).
      FH(Rocket)- Even from my first hits I could really feel the ball sink in to the blade and making most of it's wide sweet spot. It took me a few practise sessions to get back into my complete rhythm of play but once I did, balls flew past sparring partners and the blade had more than enough power to hit past opponents.
      BH(Need to be very consistent)- In my first few matches of using this blade, I found it very difficult to get more than one/two shots on per point. They'd always go too long or go into the net. However after some getting used to, it felt much easier to drive/punch past opponents and force them off the table. Backhand flicks were excelled- whether you wanted to put them down the line or produce heavy spin back, it was very easy.
      Short game(Need very good touch) Due to the JM Super ZLC being so fast, touch play would not be easy to control at all. Balls were always going off the table due to the speed but it was heavy spin being produced. When wanting to do a dropshot, sometimes the ball would be picture perfect, sometimes the ball would just bounce off the blade and off the end of the table. Fortunately, this got much better after time and you feel well in control.
      Finally, I'd recommend this blade to any offensive player for both BH/FH who is consistent. Even if you miss the sweetspot you still have a good chance of getting the ball back on. The dwell time enables the ball to literally 'sink' into the blade and produce tons of spin.

      5.00 Super ZLC is SUPER
      • Quality product
      • Good character
      • Weight

      • Price and hype
      • Smallish handle
      Hi all!

      Yesterday I had an opportunity to try, this awsome blade:
      Jun Mizutani Super ZLC Anatomic, FH: T05, BH: T80

      The blade is a good example of fine craftmanship, well for that price it better be. Nice finish on the blade, the composite material has a really nice texture, colours and the pattern are stilysh. The blade is a bit small, just like the chinese player themed Butterfly blades (LSW, ZJK). The handle is short and thin, but it is comfortable.

      Since the other two reviews are accurate and detailed, I will share some additional info. The blade has a very nice feel and a sort of linear soft kick to the ball. Nowdays the TB ALC, TB Spirit and other ALC blades are very popular, but ALC dampens or numbs resonance of the blade much. Zylon is a type of kevlar derivative so is arylate too. Carbon has a qute rigid feel and a harsh resonance when applied to a blade, but it is a undenyable what benefits it has. But this setup Super ZLC is actually perfect, it has the same feeling as a kevlar-karbon composite blade, but way more softer feel. This can be also descibed similar to the Liu Shiwen and IF ZLC but with a bit more stiffer feel and tempo. Overall the blade is a OFF type blade with a nice ALL+/OFF- touch. The setup works really well with the Tenergy rubbers (as intended from the manufacturer) way better, than any other setups I tried so far.

      I hope I could help.

      5.00 Review of Butterfly Jun Mizutani Super ZLC
      • Quality
      • Control
      • Speed

      Hi Guys, I've recently bought this blade and thought of sharing a quick review
      detailing my impressions about it. I'm had 2 practice sessions and 1 league game
      with it and so far I'm pretty impressed. Before getting into details it might be worth
      noting a couple of things. I'm a table tennis enthusiast regularly playing in the Bristol
      UK (county) league. My level of play is bottom of premier league I enjoy playing
      a somewhat offensive game, but I do rely a lot on a good blocking and positioning game.
      Previously I was using Butterfly Innerforce ALC. I use tenergy 80 and 05 on my
      forehand and backend respectively. The reason why I decided to change blade was
      because my game has improved over the last couple of months and I was feeling the ALC
      was a bit too soft and lacked pace. I had tried harder blades and liked them, so decided
      it was time for a change. I bought the JMSZLC after watching TTdaily Dan's review.
      I figured this blade would fit my game style better due to not being as hard as the ZJ,
      and providing a rounder loop arc.

      The blade impressed me immediately. The very first thing I noticed was the consistency
      and the wide sweet spot. I really is very noticible that every shot is played consistently --
      with my old ALC blade, the moment the ball hit the outer edges, I felt less confident
      and the shots weren't too accurate. With the JM shots are easy and very consistent.

      The bounce on the blade feels terrific. You get the impression that the ball speeds up as i
      leaves the bat. Also noticed immediately that despite not having changed the rubbers,
      the behaviour changed substantially. With the JM a had a lot of more time on the ball and
      the tenergy rubbers felt they could spin the ball with less effort on my part.
      On my game, I rely heavily on my backend blocking. The JM absolutely excels at this.
      I reckon in a matter on a couple of weeks my backend technic and consistent will improve
      drastically. It's an amazing feeling to be able to rely on a blade like this. Suddendly,
      I've got a lot more confidence to spin the ball with my backend and this blade makes
      it really easy. My forehand has also noticed improvements, mostly it's a lot easier to impart
      spin on the ball. Overall I'm very happy and despite being tagged at a high price, I'll def think
      it's worth it. I'm missing fewer balls and enjoying those beautiful shots a lot more. This is a
      hard quick blade for the offensive player that wants control.

      Finally, I would like to leave my thanks the "Best Table Tennis Equipment Store" http://saletabletennis.com
      for selling me this blade (and also the ZJSZLC - which I haven't tried yet) at great prices. My experience
      with them was very good and I would recommend them to anyone here on tabletennisdaily. The communication
      was good, the blades arrived in about 8 working days, and I felt this was site running by one person in HK trying
      to make an honest living out of selling TT products. I've recommend it and would definitely buy from them again.

      Butterfly Jun Mizutani Super ZLC vs Zhang Jike Super ZLC Blade Review with England's Darius Knight!

      TableTennisDaily had the fantastic opportunity to review Butterfly's latest blades, comparing the Jun Mizuntani Super ZLC with the Zhang Jike Super ZLC, with Butterfly player Darius Knight!

      Both @Dan and Darius Knight alternated the blades they were using between the Mizutani and Zhang Jike super ZLC throughout the review to get a good idea of how each perform. Tenergy 05 was used on both the forehand and back hand side.
