      Butterfly Zhang Jike Super ZLC Blade Review

      TableTennisDaily had the fantastic opportunity to review Butterfly's latest blade, the Zhang Jike Super ZLC.

      @Dan and @Tom both used the Butterfly Zhang Jike Super ZLC blade in this review using the Butterfly Tenergy 05 rubbers. The review looks at the blade characteristics, various techniques and a range of shots used in today's modern game of table tennis and also which types of players this blade is most suited to. Thanks to Butterfly, Daniel Ives, Tom Maynard, and Kingfisher Table Tennis Club in the making of this review. You can buy Butterfly's Zhang Jike Super ZLC blade on the Butterfly website here.



      We hope you enjoyed this review, let us know what you think by posting below guys. Do you use any of the Zhang Jike series of blades? Both Christian Suss and Shan Xiaona are now using the Zhang Jike Super ZLC blade.

      Nice review. Looks pretty fast, but that's complemented by the tenergy I guess. Think about changing my frame and this might be a nice option, but it might be too fast for me.
      Btw, like the ''made in Japan'' sign on a ZJ frame

      This blade has a damaged outer layer (0:53 min). it was originaly from the box? what about the quality of production? I have 2 bty blades (innerforce zlc and mizutani zlc ) and i've never seen damage like this before.. and there..


      Of course Thanks for this superb review

      The blade can be quite good but note well the difference using the T05 for the others reviews ...
      more power, more control , more spin...

      Thanks for the review - great as always!

      This shows how subjective certain attributes like speed / power are: I think most that have tried the blade found it to be one of the most powerful blades (away from the table) available.

      I tried the ZJK-SZLC vs the ZJK-ALC and found the SZLC much more powerful from mid-distance. Perhaps, it's extra stiffness manifested into the apparent power problem?

      i have only tried the regular ZJK alc for a short while from a friend. I find it not too fast. it had spin art and t05 glued on it. even with t05 it wasnt that fast. good spinner's blade i guess. also, IMHO, the regular zjk blade was hurriedly made in order to capitalize zjk's rise to stardom at that time. i think they improved the blade better on the super version

      No worries @Turboz Yes I would like to know this to. Hopefully some users will post some reviews of the Mizutani SZLC.

      Of course Thanks for this superb review
      Thank you for the compliments on the review

      I shot the intro after the review, I think that is glue that you can see on the blade. It is not damaged. The production is superb, I wouldn't worry about that

      Yeah I agree with you. Different reviews have found different attributes. I think technique and style of play will have a lot to do with this. Yeah I think the extra stiffness could have caused the apparent power problem. I felt with perhaps a little more softer rubber such as the Tenergy 80 FX I would have been able to play stronger away from the table with more arc.

      Thanks for commenting Glad you liked the reviews.

      if you should get one is up to you the outer ply is koto yes. The composition of the blade is quite similar to Viscaria FL and the rest of the ZJK series. The difference lies in the composite/fibre layers.

      It is very expensive, but looks good. I think its a blade you would have, but wouldn't want to use just incase you break it

      That's what I thought about the blade structure. I think it's not bad to get one just to try it out, you can sell it off as a second hand with fairly good price here in Thailand too if it's not damaged something like 350$ --> 300$
