All new for 2015 the Butterfly Garaydia ZLC is a high rebound model with ZL-Carbon fibers focused on balancing powerful speed and extreme control.

Equipped with lightweight ZL-Carbon fibers the Garaydia ZLC boasts speed while also providing high ball rotation. Its thick 3-ply wood veneer construction enhanced by 2 ZL-Carbon fibers makes you feel like you're grabbing the ball while still bringing plenty of power.

Its ZL-Carbon fibers placed closer to the middle of the blade lends stability, a spinny touch while still keeping the ball trajectory relatively low. The Garaydia ZLC - open up yourself to a whole new world of possibilities for uncompromising attacks!

What a powerful Blade. It is very fast, and also has a nice throw angle, plus the zlc carbon and the thick hinoki outer ply gives It a nice touch. It is not balsa in the center, it is Kiri. For me, It was too powerfull, I gave It to my coach for a better usage.

Great blade with Tenergy 05 FX max on both sides :) Topspin is very powerfull and the rotation is awesome :) Control is good for me with this rubbers

Very well balanced in terms of speed and control. I've used many blades, Viscaria, Schlager, Innerforce Layer ALC.S, Rosewood NCT VII, Intensity VPS V, Clipper Wood, and maybe only Viscaria comes close to such balance. Close to the table attacks are very efficient with strong support for away from the table counterattacks. Good dwell time to generate powerful spin. Short game gives all-wood like control. The best blade for my style of play.

Once you learn to tame the beast, so to speak, blocks are much easier! Really being able to utilize that "airiness" comes in handy, and soon the true control of this blade is unearthed! So, it may feel too fast to begin with for most. - Loops are stupendous! Heavy, loaded, and not super speedy. A good amount of dwell time really lets you load up on the ball. And despite its thickness, the ball doesn't actually rocket out all that fast. Sure, it has a quicker kick than defensive blades such as the innershield ZLF. But nothing like a hard 7 play all wood blade, where you feel as if you're playing with a 2x4 plank! - The short game, again like the blocks, is really fantastic! The backhand flick feels like a dream! Great touch over the table. I've never been a great pusher, so my opinion here isn't worth too much weight. Having said that, I didn't fare any worse with this blade than any other. - Smashes - not ideal, due to the airiness I keep mentioning. If that is your game, you may want to look elsewhere. - Chops - doable, yet not too forgiving as the blade is fairly fast - All in all, a truly magnificent weapon! - Pros: Light weight, spinny with good dwell, very controllable once tamed, large grip, solid blocking, soft 'airy' feel - Cons: price, too fast for some styles or experience levels, doesn't chop or smash very well, unforgiving during initial uses, you have to enjoy fast blades
