According to Butterfly its an Innerforce-Type ALC blade, custom made for him. It's definitely inner-layer composite.

Apparently he switches back and forth between T05 and T05-FX on BH - the big question is, what rubber is he now using on the forehand. Butterfly logo, but no Tenergy logo at the Japan Open.

Guys seriously... That is a tenergy rubber, the writing is just super unclear. You can faintly make out the Y at the end - we just need a better quality picture.

I will bet my tuition fees that it isn't some kind of secret butterfly rubber if he isn't even using on the backhand either, sigh

So you are saying that this reads Tenergy? Just doesn't look like it to me.

Been staring at this for 15 minutes. Maybe it actually says Tenergy and its just an optical illusion.

In that case, its' T05/T05.

Look at the T and the Y, it's pretty easy to see and it shouldn't take you that long to figure it out, perhaps you are questioning my validity lol

It's most likely T05/T05, as he used to use T80/T05fx, edit: so why would he use T80 fh and T05 bh? LOL

Butterfly Japan have tweeted - T05 both sides.

This was a great signature until I realised it was overrated.

 Against harimato (wc) I saw him serving upclose and I guess his fh rubber was somesort of sticky chinese rubber with tons of booster. It was insane! blade was light blue with small round lens. ( I guess dhs long 5? )

Its interesting because he was using red tenergy 05 on his fh before...

Apolonia seems to have ditched his namesake BTY blade (at least in today's match against Harmeet Desai in the Indian circuit).

The handle is Apolonia ZLC. But saw once that it was not an innerforce Blade.

Hey, look at the Mattias Karlsson blade. The img is taken from the video of the match as pointed by assam.



No Yasaka logo on the handle, but what about the layers?

This is clearly a modified blade model. Maybe it is butterfly innerforce zlc, but IF we remove the aluminium logo we will have the japanese letters, so maybe this is not butterfly. Idk what to say... But not a yasaka blade to me!

But if it wasn't smooth I imagine you would accuse him of boosting.

Because there is a large minority of delusional, entitled (in terms of age and play time) individuals here. My message to those would be to get off your high horse, and enjoy the sport for what it is, and get real

Really? I thought that short pips on Mattias FH need a stiff blade for achieving a great precision in his flat hits. Bty Timo Boll Spark seems to be a quite elastic blade. Isn't it?
