    Too general of a question. A lot of brands now have very good products and are much better than some of butterfly blades and rubbers but have lower price.

    They may have some of the best equipment. But it's not going to be the best for most people. Plus, they are overpriced even with being elite. The Best bang for the buck (in my opinion) has to go with either Nittaku or Xiom (while staying very consistent from one model to the next).

    I'm not sure if you realised you've just answered an almost 4 year old thread? But it's always fun when that happens! 😀

    For what it's worth, the question that was asked is too general in my opinion, and unless we get wood and carbon specialists in to analyse the materials used, it comes down to personal preference.

    I'm a big Butterfly fan, and always have been.

    Why?

    Marketing? That certainly plays a part.

    But for me, their products just feel the best (especially rubbers). I also find the quality of the blades to be some of the very best, but there are a lot of companies producing good quality blades that are very similar now.

    Is Butterfly the best value? No, certainly not.

    But if money doesn't matter, I think there is a blade and rubber for everyone in the Butterfly range - And all of them are very very good.

    Haha... I started at the top of the thread and read a post where someone wrote, "The others are always complayning about their rubbers durability, and I have my Tenergy 05 rubbers since August 2014 kkkk and they're in a good state..."

    Definitely surprised/shocked me until I noted the posting date.

    So, I am using another brand ( Koxtonsmart ) for TT but now will definitely try these brands to see the difference.

    Super old thread but since it popped up, I'll drop my piece anyway - as a player with mild EJ symptoms.

    Butterfly is highest, in terms of quality and price, no questions. Deep-pocketers + ambitious enthusiasts should always aim to purchase this brand regardless of skill level; I knew an uncle in my neighborhood who owns and plays a Mizutani SZLC+2 Dignics when he first started 'playing seriously' - that blade literally gave fast and cheap points for me so why not.😎

    My very first blade is a Donic (Epox Offensiv) - a very fine brand with assortment of selections for blades and rubbers alike. You get something close to 85%-90% of Butterfly quality for half price on average. I highly recommend this brand for starting and developing players of all ages who wants to be frugal.

    I used DHS too, it was of proper quality, especially the H301 (and the Fang Bo series too I believe) are very good blades with excellent price-to-performance ratio. But I must agree that the QC of DHS isn't as high level as the other brands hence leading to the aforementioned durability issues. Also, narrow product ranges with tons of fakes means I won't go top-end with this brand, personally speaking.

    Then I found Yasaka. Sophisticated blades, totally evident from their material selection and finish, for real. And what I love the most is they lacquer all their blades from the factory - saving much time on my side for longevity maintenance. Their rubber selections are also wide-ranged and able to cater different playstyles and budgets. I'll be sticking with them for now and hopefully a long time to come (unless I'm re-infected by the EJ and end up wanting to try other brands I never used before, lol)

    So, what is the "BEST" brand?
    If speaking of product only, Butterfly. Period.
    If speaking about value (budget, skill level, playing frequency, long-term TT objective), Donic and Yasaka is certainly up there for me.
