Also question is, is butterfly better than Stiga?
Butterfly makes better quality paddles in general, but Stiga’s wood is softer compare to new Butterfly paddles. the newer butterfly paddles (Viscaria, Timo Boll ALC…) the wood are known to be harder than older ones(a few years back). In China, people sell older Viscaria at higher prices.
Keeping this in consideration, how long can a table tennis blade last?
If you play regularly, then an all-round blade should last a year or two. An offensive blade will last longer, and a very fast blade much longer. However, the change in the blade with age may not bother you at all. Some players never change their blade.
Why is butterfly so expensive table tennis?
1) the balance of Zylon to Carbon is different than in the older ZLC blades and since it is being billed as a “new formula” the blades are being sold at a high price because of the “research and development” that went in to making them.
Weight, Ply, Thickness

Timo Boll ALC ST blade
OFF = power spin offence
It is especially well suited to players who play powerful loop drives and want to win fast, direct points. It also suits strong power blocking and counter hitting play close to the table. Amongst attacking players this is the leading choice for the offensive topspin attack game.
Pimpled rubbers or Pips (some people mistakenly call them “nipples”, “nips”, or “pimps”) have raised tubes in a uniform pattern (instead of a smooth surface), and produce different effects. There are three types of pips: Short Pips. Medium Pips.
The flared handle has a gravity center that is closer to the grip and the blade fits in the palm of a hand. This handle provides confidence in your hand. That’s why the Flared handle is great for forehand dominant player, who prefers using powerful strokes at mid-distance.
