Description of Butterfly Kreanga Carbon

Butterfly introduces a lighter weight blade featuring a new Uniaxial Light Carbon Technology (ULC), where all the fibers point in the same direction. Until now, Butterfly Carbon Blades were made up of Carbon fibers laid out in a cross-wise setup. ULC Technology has allowed Butterfly engineers to create a lighter Carbon blade without a loss of speed and with much greater feel for the ball.

The Kreanga Carbon is coated with a special metallic gray finish that makes regluing a breeze. Explosive mid-distance power with great feel for the short game, the Kreanga Carbon has it all.

Reviews of the Butterfly Kreanga Carbon

Review Anonymous said this on September 1, 2009:

The Kreanga Carbon blade is a truly outstanding blade. The touch in a delicate service return game is great, even in comparison with moderate off- blades. It has a hard and stiff feel, but not uncomfortably hard and stiff, and the dwell time on the blade is very significantly larger than on a Boll Spirit/ALC. It has a good catapult effect, with much speed for the looping game in half distance. I have recently teste the Boll ALC, ZLC, the Photino and the Amultart, all with Tenergy 05 rubbers in 2.1 version and I will not change the blade. Kreanga Carbon outperforms them all if you need a strong feeling for the ball, without compromising the speed and the catapult effect. Go and buy one if you can still find one (they are not produced anymore for some odd reason).

I didnt dislike this blade, i just couldnt get used to how hard and fast it was! every drive loop flew long and pushing was well hard to keep cosistant, which was dissapointing because it felt slick and well balanced. It must be quick as i now use a joola kool and find it a breeze to cotrol compared to this! Maybe they stopped making them because the surface is that smooth the rubber nearly falls straight off !
Review JimT said this on February 4, 2010:

Great attacking blade for people who swing from both wings and have very good technique. If you are a controlled looper, don't get it. But if you are a smasher, your game is rather flat and you attack all the time, this just might be it. Short game is not the blade's strength so make sure you know what you are doing.

They stopped making this blade as it illegal to use in comps, there is a thin layer of metal on the blade surface which goes against the new rules. Shame.

I use this blade now and i have to say its very fast but still controllabele!
It`s my favourite blade now beacause it has much speed and power with a good balanced control and dwelling time which provides a nice not to direct carbon feeling!
If youre an offensive player who likes fast and light blades and if you often go into halfdistance rallies buy it!

Review gavin said this on August 5, 2011:

I have used Kreanga Carbon for a few yrs now,as a player of some 22 yrs I have been a long time Butterfly rubber and racket customer.
This blade with a glue effect style of rubber and softer yet powerful feeling of precision makes it my favourite racket ever.
As with quality and well thought invention,comes with unexpected higher expense,unfortunately...
Review powerlefty said this on October 10, 2011:

Great feeling for such a fast blade. It sucked trying to get rubbers to stick onto it forever. Great for powerloop. A little bouncy and hard to control for touch shots though. To bad this blade is illegal now but I would assume that the Holycrown is the samw blade as this minus the paint on the face. This should make gluing easier atleast.

I got 2 of them! One is a prototype and very stiff, but is very special and a regular one which looks better. U never get mine and if u try to get the regular one u have to pay much money.
But if ur a both winged aggressive middistance player who like much catapult buy it and combine it with soft rubbers like sriver fx, tenergy 05 FX, Tenergy 64 FX or Bryce Speed FX!

Extremely expensive blade, I had the misfortune of breaking 1 of these going for a forehand power loop, havent been able to get hold of 1 or been the same player since:( probably the fastest blade ive EVER used!!!
Review abhay said this on June 6, 2012:

i have been using it since last 5 years. its really great feeling playing with it. you get a good result when you hit flat shots.
Review killerbee said this on September 22, 2013:

I had to sand off part of the blade, because the rubbers would not stick.

Otherwise, the blade is very good! Fast, light, hard/stiff, but not the annoying high tone the T5000 has, when you hit the ball.

Definitely worth a try, its a shame butterfly stopped making this blade.

I will never sell mine.
It is something special.
