Butterfly Table Tennis Question and Answer

Question:

Blade: BTY Photino
Forehand Rubber: T05
Backhand Rubber: T05

Hello. I love my Photino 79g blade so much that I want to get another as a back up. Sadly BTY stopped producing them. What blade is almost identical to Photino? Please advice. Thank you.

This Ask the Experts question was answered by Stefan Feth. He is one of the coaches at the World Champions Table Tennis Academy in Santa Clara, CA. Coach Feth’s response is as follows:

Hi Erick,

Thanks for your question and interest in Butterfly equipment.

In my opinion the closest blade to the Photino is the Timo Boll ZLF blade.

Best,
