Hello everyone,

I am a new member and i will be very happy if anyone could help me identifying a blade. After many and many searches here and there I am at the same of the beginning, i.e lost. 
Is there anyone who knows the name of that Paddle. All I know, is that seems a Butterfly one

Thanks

The handle looks like pre-made styles that I've seen. I haven't seen a premade that used sriver though from that era

I have a Cypress X that has a similar handle, but it's kind of a strange shape. Not really flared even, more quasi penhold

I also have my original butterfly seemiller with the Branded handle. I got it in 1981 and it has that same decal

Thanks Cole for your reply
What impress me is that the rubbers are still in very good condition that i can make spin the ball. 
Maybe I will write to Butterfly to get more specific informations. 
Do you have any idea how much it could worth a setup like that for selling?

Well if it's got real sriver and it's in good shape, maybe 50 to 80? Unless it's a better blade than I'm realizing

double red...probably pretty old

Maybe worth less. May be very difficult to remove the old rubbers

This is a Butterfly racket, probably from the 1970's. It looks close to my first racket, the Butterfly Boerzey with Sriver rubbers. After 40-50 years, the rubber is like brick. To remove it, google on various options (I recall one post proposed steam through a towel with an iron), I damaged my blade when I took them off. Also my blade was by today's standards an OFF blade (with the current ball) which means at the time it was way too fast for me (with the celluloid ball). So I recommend if you are close to a beginner to start with the usual forum recommended 5-ply wood blade, and inverted rubbers. For example, at princett.com:
and Moon (Soft Sponge) Rubbers:
Shipping from Hong Kong is about 2-4 weeks.
Or go to Coles TT: https://colestt.com/
and buy the 5-ply combo with inverted rubbers (shipped from the USA).

I wouldn't bother trying to resuscitate the dead 40-50 year old rubbers on the ancient blade. You may be able to sell the blade to a collector and use the money to buy a new one :-)

Laszlo Foldy was a hungarian player in the 50s and 60s so i believe this is Butterfly's  1 star premade paddle with his name on it...but the premade is from the 1970s

Well, thanks everyone

I did not expect to play with it but as the informations are few about it maybe I will give it a try. First I will try to take the rubbers off carefully and put some spare rubbers on it. It seems like everyone says a Böerszey model but without the name I doubt I can sell it for an intersting price. For what I see it is a 5 ply with Hinoki outer ply. It is pretty heavy and stiff. 

Let’s figure it out as soon as I can, maybe it will be too fast for me. Anyway that remains a pretty thing
