I have boxes full of blades from Butterfly, Stiga, Donic, Nittaku, Custom mades, Juic........and the winner is hands down? Donic Epox Series Power Carbon! The feel, finish, quality, playability is unmatched. As for rubber there is no "best" It's only best if you like it and it suits your game.

No Nittaku?  Blade, Rubber, Ball, Shoe, Textile... Every one them are good.
Butterfly misses the ball category...
Joola and donic were terrible...

No Xiom too. Their blades have better design and finishing quality than Butterfly.

For Blades: Nittaku, especially Violin, the edge of the blade is so smooth, no other blades has such great finish and quality.

Rubbers: DHS H3 National version, but needs tuning :(

NITTAKU. I just got my ludeack from anton.
 
It's basically the same blade as my clipper but a bit thinner, more flexible... etc etc.
 
BUT THE BUILD QUALITY!!!
 
i know why this blade is usually 115 dollars compared to my 70 clipper cr. I've never seen something so well done before. Butterfly eat your heart out. It looks like a 72 year old japanese man went into the mountains for 8 months and then came out with this blade.

The Nittaku Ludeack is a sleeper...very fine blade indeed. Nittaku 3-star premium balls are the best of the best. Some of Nittaku's upper range blades do have exceptional build quality. I never buy Joola blades due to prior bad experiences with quality but I'm sure there are exceptions.

I have not found one that entirely suited my game but the two Xiom blades I bought had really high quality.  Very very good indeed.

Then you should wait for Nittaku Barwell. It has red stripes like clipper, but dark top ply like H-king. The handle is blue like H-king. Prabably Wang Liqin tested this 7 ply blade before :)

NITTAKU for ever!
 
Yesterday I had a tt marathon stating at 12pm and ending at 9pm in 3 clubs. I was hanging out with tt buddies from out of town who wanted to have a hint of what's going on here ttwise.
 
I played with my Ludeack power and I water glued a pair of Nittaku GS Supersoft MAX.
 
I wanted to feel the 7 ply wood with super soft rubbers and I have to say it's a dream on the backhand koop and everything bh related actually: highly recommended on that side.
The FH loop was a bit weak but the hits were wonderful (the ball gets in touch with the wood in no time).
 
I'll play next week U2000 and U2200 and I hope I can make something happen because that setup offers such a great wood feeling and an absolute control while remaining fairly fast.
 
I lost U1950 fianls 2 weeks ago because my setup was far to be satisfying (black power and red diamond on that ludeack power = 198 grams brick).
 
No excuse this time; I have something that works; VERY well balanced; super spinny; fast enough and awesome wood feeling. No excuse!
 
I have a question: what are the relations between Nittaku and Butterfly? are they related in any way or are they direct and true competitors?

Tendrian que añadir en maderas GALAXY -YINGE , realmente sorprendentes . sobre todo en maderas ,de 5 laminas . serie N y en compuesto Series  Venus Y serie T, muy buenas y en una sola lamina de Hinoki . Impresionantes. Lastima que mucha gente no las conoce. Probarlas y me lo dires.  Mi voto en gomas es para Friendship 729 , varios modelos . LO siento por Butterfly , se han pasado con los precios. sobre todo con tenergy 05, y duran muy poco.

Donic has always been my preference for rubber. Stiga and Donic blades have been my preference, but like someone already commented, it's really what feels good to each person.  I like Butterfly rubbers but I've always felt their blade handles were a little too small for me.  I now play with Acuda S3 and it's one of the best rubbers I've ever played with.  Their new Burn blades are also very good, especially for $50.

Have no used Xiom so cant say. But I have used Butterfly, Donic, Nittaku, Darker and Yasaka and I would have to go with Nittaku and then darker as a close second. I am surprised Nittaku isn't even on the list.

BTY has some nice high end blades but they also have some junk blades not made in Japan. If you look at BTY's full range as far as quality control is concerned then they are not in the top three brands, not even close. Darker, Donic, Nittaku are the clear leaders from my 40 years of blade purchases. The utimate winner is Ross Leidy blades but that would be cheating. Thumbs Up
