Reviews of the Butterfly Sardius

Review tsding said this on March 25, 2008:

This is a super fast attacking blade which I used for the past 15 years, until I switched to a slightly slower blade. This an excellent blade for young energetic players who attacks / counter attack all the time. Everytime the ball is struck, you can feel the powerful ball taking off from sardius and a joy watching its impact on your opponent.

I found this to be an excellent blade with decent speed, however, i stopped playing with it as i wanted even more speed and got my boll tricarbon from storage. This is still an excellent blade and served me very well

Review Joni said this on November 14, 2010:

Very fast blocking and punching blade but isn't good for looping at all. I recommended it using soft rubber.

I've been using this blade for years and its great. Im a looper and use a softer slower rubber to counter the speed of the blade. works great for me.

Super fast and hard blade. Very comfortable handle. No vibration. Too fast for most players.

Review Anonymous said this on November 4, 2011:

It's a very good blade. Worth buying it. Speed is magnificent and it also produces nice spin. I am currently using DHS Neo Hurricane 3 Provincial on my FH, and Donic Traction for my BH. It is a good combination, but it is quite heavy. A week ago, my Donic Traction hit the edge of the table and ripped about 3 mm wide. Should I change it with rubbers other than the Donic Traction, or should I just buy a new Donic Traction? This blade is more suited for offensive play, not defensive play.

I use sardius more than 10 years. And I feel happy with this blade. Powerful, High speed, Medium weight(93g for my blade), Cool & everything is good but hard to control. I reccommend soft rubbers and soft sponge. It will improve the Control.Enjoy ;)

Review clublevelplayer said this on January 19, 2013:

bought mine second hand but still in good playing condition. tested this and played for almost 7 hours. A little heavy , a powerful blade. I actually made an impression of liking and quite controlling this beast. pair it with Nittaku rubber Magic Carbon and Joola Samba plus. Both soft to medium sponge with soft top sheet rubber. Great for flat driving and fast ball. You have to tame its speed and use this to your advantage. Two opponents were readily notice my third ball attack. One opponent of mine was taken by surprised and it was first time I won over this player. Quite straining to my wrist since came from a light 88gms blade. But still happy with the result, judging by my wins over my opponent.

When the ball hits the blade its like the ball gets kicked
Review guusvansoer said this on July 29, 2013:

The fastest blade that i ever tried. A lot of people said that Sardius is not good for player who like to spin the ball and work very well only for hitting and smashing the ball. For me, with a good combination of rubber, we can produce a good spin with sardius. You have to look for flexible rubber (FX) to reduce his hardness. I choose Butterfly Sriver G3 FX for my forehand and TSP Super Spinpips 21 for my backhand. Sardius work very ideal if you combine it with a short pips rubber.
Review TBollALC said this on August 30, 2013:

very good racket. Suits players with big hands. Gets worn out within 1 Year 9 months, I switched to Timo Boll ALC because of that.
Review themoon28 said this on September 5, 2014:

Although Sardius is always a very popular blade in my country due to it extreme speed, it is also a nightmare for intermediate player like me.
The only power of this blade is when you smash, the ball fly extremely low, fast and really difficult to return. However, modern table tennis players don't give you many chances to smash, you need to build up your loops, counter-loops, blocks, pushes, flicks and even serves. Personally, Sardius is a very inappropriate blade for learning or improving those basic strokes
Review Frogger said this on November 11, 2014:

Played with this blade decades ago. High quality blade from BTY. Speed and stiffness is outdated with the advent of tensor and glue effect rubber technology/ new blade compositions materiels This blade is simply to hard and fast for the mass of players. BTY has discontinued many blades over the years that were far superior to Sardius so it is a puzzle to me this model is still being produced. Save your money unless you are a blade collector. Very fast blocking at the table or looping from 100ft away are it's attributes. Play with 1QHD max and you can loop from Hawaii. Old school Tamca Carbon layers makes this blade a weapon and your opponents need body armour. All kidding aside I do not recommend this one even for pure power players.
