Excellent blade for Paul Bunyan-style defensive players. The Defence-II has a semi-large head featuring Willow wood outer plies for exquisite control.

Also known as Butterfly Defense II.

5% more speed than primorac, stiff and soft blade. mega control, pushes vs pushes can be very aggresive and low, chop vs topspin ball has strange flight path, ball really slows dawn in air, but chop can be high (need proper technique). best defensive blade

I don't recommend putting tensors on it unless you are an offensive player. I couldn't tame the beast with Donic Baracuda on the FH. Better go for slow to average speed rubbers with 1.2 to 1.5 mm sponge. It doesn't seem good for long pips in OX due to its rigidity and long throw. Since Dragon's Talon is a fast rubber, it might work with something slow like Donic Alligator. Much better for me with 0.6 sponge. As I am not a real defender and have no idea how to use the big blade surface, I trimmed it to 153 x 145 mm. It is a bit slower now (Off- to Off maybe) but still quite fast for me and better for chopping than before. If you find the right rubbers to pair with and you play medium and long distance defense it can be quite a good weapon. I find it better suited for an all around offensive player than for a defender.

One of the rare allwood gems from Butterfly. I love the control and weight of this paddle. Great for looping and playing defensively from all distancea. Highly recommended for a variable defensive player.

Blade was combined with Tenergy 05 and TSP curl P1R, the control of this blade is superb! The speed is fast enough to produce surprise attacks. Great for chopping and absorbs smash well. There are few "pop-ups" but its due to "first time" use. Great product from Butterfly!

A great blade. Easy to chop with and will loop with the best of them. (update)After I have used the Victas Koji Matsushita I found that the Def II is too soft to chop effectively. Does loop well but there are better chopping blades out there. Like the VKM. Great blade.
