What different between this special FL handle and normal FL? Or Wood ply better?

Handle of ST looks really small and rounded! Not made for big hands.

You bought it? Congrats!

I am looking for the penhold version but it is only available at prott.vip at US$550. I am waiting for the quoted price from BTF, about US$300.

Is it really a limited edition? and the butterfly logo is gilded?

That would be great Juanma! Thank you in advance!

Please help provide us with more information about that blade, e.g., composition, dimensions, gilded logo or not.

This blade is quoted by BTF China at about US$300 but currently not available in some online distributors such as Dpin1000 or Pingpang354...

Prott.vip is selling at US$550 but I don't think it is worth that much :)

i will ask with the family in Guangzhou, Beijing and zengcheng. maybe it´s fake but 550$ i guess it´s too much! don´t pay so expensive, the main page can´t share sometghing public and not to be true, anyway i will ask this days.

ok! first on the image from the first post the butterfly-china is just telling the properties of the blade viscaria that we all already know, just the new logo gold. then exist official retails who can sell this blade i will put the links below this post, and well tomorrow a familiar will call from those numbers on the page on butterfly asking the retail price and not from other stores( no official dealer) that's why they put their prices. ok next time i'll bring more info from Butterfly-china. links:

One interesting thing is that this handle is completely different from the custom ones they made for me a few years ago, where the handles were very square indeed and not at all like the original Viscaria ST.  Very uncomfortable and it was a big reason why I sold the blades.  This one wouldn't have worked for me either, but I just mention that it is different and probably better than the ones they made for me.  Like the ones they made for me, there are no plastic badges on the handle.

My recommendation?  Buy the ZJK-ALC instead.  All of their handles are pretty good.

$550????????    That is bat$hi# crazy.

yes, it's too much!!! 550$ it's the price from other stores! look i found it and the price like the official page because it's from ttshop who is an official dealer from butterfly-china i let the link, but it's sold out, guess someone in China buys the blades and obviously will sell more expensive! so careful with big prices. 

http://www.ttshop.cn/goods.php?id=4283

this the link to buy directly 1980 yuans like the official page, it's around 289 -290 $ worth it? well depends, regards! maybe take a few time to load the page if not enter on the link before more up comments and write viscaria.

Golden Viscaria is identical to regular Viscaria. Kiri core ,Limba,Vectran + Carbon aka ALC and Koto outer veneers . It has the same gold tag as Yoshimura,has no print,available in all handle styles and comes in the old blue custom made box. Specs are all the same as a standard Viscaria you pay the extra money cause it's a limited edition.

The normal Vis is only US$100 in my country. It is insane to pay 500 for this limited edition :)

Yeah not sure why anyone would pay $500+ for a blade Butterfly prices at $300 even though it's the same as their $150 blade that's been around 20 years. Especially if you buy it in flare. Does anyone know how many pieces were even made ?

Yes, that's also what I think. Why should anyone buy this Viscaria with FL handle?
ST could be an option if you have small hands.
The former custom made Viscaria ST (without lens) had a similar price (300 USD).
