    Do butterfly still make the best composite blades?

    Are butterfly still no. 1 in making composite blades in terms of performance or have other brands (xiom, stiga...) catched up with their recent releases in the past few years.

    Butterfly still make really good quality blades; but they're certainly not alone in that. All the mainstream brands make blades - depending on the specific model - as good as Butterfly. And in some cases at much better prices.

    And then of course there are the 'artisan' or 'custom' blade makers, whose blades are at least as good as - if not better than - the main commercial brands. In this category you should look at OSP, Vodak, Red+Black, SDC, BBC, Nate, Soulspin, and other custom makers on this site.

    If you have a specific Butterfly model in mind then folks on this site can tell you how the equivalent models of other brands compare.

    The Korean.made blades of Xiom, Tmount and Joola are as good as Butterfly blades.

    One thing I would say is, Butterfly blades do seem more durable, more able to withstand getting banged into the edge of the table (which happens) better than most of the other major commercial brands.

    BTY blades have the biggest resale value.
    Someone could sell an old banged up, sweaty, grimy Amultart and it's still gonna find buyers.
    Hell someone post pictures shoving the Amultart handle up their pipe and guys would still be willing to give their left nut for it.

    Pretty much agree on this one. I've seen old tag viscaria offered at approx. USD400

    Butterfly blade equals investment as my observation goes around. People buy it mostly says 'better sale value when I want to sell it' 😂😂😂
