BUTTERFLY FAVORITES – The Beauty of the Butterfly Blade

(by Steve Hopkins)

We pulled this video out of the archives from late 2017 (the video is titled “How Butterfly Table Tennis Blades are Made”). It was designed to demonstrate the detailed craftsmanship, consistency, and quality.

But for this time of crisis in some areas of the US, this is a nice memory of the sport. Areas are beginning to rise out of the crisis and some clubs are beginning to open. It will not be long before all of us can hold a paddle during competition again.

Stay tuned this week for an article on stocking up. Now that we can see light at the end of this COVID-19 tunnel, its time to start getting ready.

Have you been considering an equipment change but you were worried about your rating? When your club opens, everyone will be out of practice and there won’t be any tournaments for weeks.

How has your equipment weathered the break? Some items are great after being packed up and stored – others may need some attention.

Visit ButterflyOnline.com for the latest equipment news and information.
