Butterfly Table Tennis Table, Paddle, Balls, Shoes, & Table Cover Reviews In 2022

Butterfly Table Tennis Table, Paddle, Balls, Shoes, & Table Cover Reviews

You’ll need safe and high-quality table tennis equipment, regardless of whether you’re a casual player or a serious player.

Table tennis equipment from Butterfly has been manufactured since 1950.

So you can be assured they produce high-quality products.

There is no further need to praise Butterfly if you praise 70 years of experience.

In this Butterfly review, I will give you a lot of choices from Table Tennis Tables to table tennis shoes.

Watch out for your needs and grab the product that suits you. So, without further ado,

let’s get started!

Butterfly Table Tennis Table Reviews

1. Butterfly Playback 19 Table Tennis Table

Designed for home or recreational use, the Butterfly Playback 19 table tennis table is the perfect table for table tennis enthusiasts.

Because the table folds and can be transported, it is easy to move from one place to another.

It is of excellent quality, both in terms of its construction and materials.

It is well welded, and the steel used is sufficiently thick to avoid using spot welding or rivets.

It is the main reason for putting this table at the top of this Butterfly review.

The table’s surface is excellent, perfectly smooth, and flat.

Exterior edges should be less likely to develop nicks and cuts with the steel edge.

Easily foldable, it can be rolled along on its wheels.

It is a good idea not to fold the legs completely flush against the back of the table when folded.

This makes it impossible for them to bend or bind or bind up when lowering the table, which could hurt the cross bracing.

My only complaint is that it takes two people to lower each leaf when the table is folded for storage.

Because the latches that hold the table up require two people to operate.

The latches on either end of the table leaf need to be pressed down by one person on each side.

No doubt this is for safety.

It almost forces you to work with two people (which makes the entire process easier).

It is not ideal to do one-person practice with one side down and the other folded up, as there is a large gap near the net, making it very easy for the balls to go flying.

It is also easy to assemble thanks to clear instructions (although visual orientation might help when looking at the drawings since there are no text instructions).

After unpacking inventorying parts and tools, we collectively took two and a half hours, 15 minutes to assemble it.

You will need two 10mm socket wrenches for this project and an electric drill/driver with a large Phillips head bit.

I could easily see assembly taking three hours or more if you used box wrenches and a screwdriver.

Since this table is an Indoor Table, its surface will be preserved and prolonged as long as it is in an indoor environment.

Features:

  1. With the Playback 19’s one-piece design, it can be folded easily and transported to your storage area via rotating wheels. The table’s locking feature keeps it from being moved.
  2. It comes with a beautiful Table Tennis Net set.
  3. USA Table Tennis has approved this indoor ping pong table
  4. An excellent bounce is provided by a ¾ inches thick ping pong tabletop.
  5. To play without a partner, unfold one half while keeping the other half vertical.
  6. Ping pong paddles and balls can be kept in the accessory holders on either side. Each holder can carry two rackets and four balls.

Product Details

  • Material: Alloy Steel and Wood
  • Play Dimensson: 60 x 54 x 6 inches
  • Indoor/Outdoor Use: Indoor only
  • Table Weight: 180 pounds

Positives

It is an outstanding table in every way. Every time you unfold the table, it lines up perfectly.

There is no sagging with the net system. Moreover, this is a worthwhile investment.

Negatives

In the playback or solo mode, there is a big gap near-net. So, the ball goes down from the gap.

It’s fine, but the company is advertising this mode as the solo mode or playback mode, which is wrong.

It’s just a half folding position.

Pros
  • Best for recreational play
  • Thick wood table top
  • Good quality net and post
  • Storage place for bats and balls
Cons
  • Not for professionals

2. Butterfly Club 25 Table Tennis Table

One of Butterfly’s top models, the Club 25 Rollaway Table, has a rather low price point for its 1″ top.

It has a steel frame and rail that reinforces the structure and provides additional support, making it an ideal choice for schools or recreation centers.

If you don’t have a partner but want to play, you can use the playback mode.

There is one upright side on which you can rally your Ping Pong ball.

Even though there are places in the instructions where it is recommended that 2 people assemble the unit, I decided to do it myself.

However, it’s not easy to assemble alone.

Thanks to the instructions, putting together this table with 2 persons is extremely easy.

The photographs are very detailed, indicating inside, outside, left, right, identifying brackets, etc.

The screws, bolts, nuts, and washers are all in metric.

Stainless steel hardware is used throughout this German design ping pong table.

It’s really impressive.

Moreover, plastic covers the painted surface on the table’s two halves.

This table has a design similar to a clock made in Germany.

Despite the table’s weight, it is easily folded and unfolded due to the design.

Features:

  1. The frame and rails are heavy gauges steel to reinforce and support the table.
  2. The Club 25 has legs that are 2 3/8″ square, a rail that is 1 1/2″, and
  3. It comes with a 3-year warranty that the manufacturer backs.
  4. The level playing surface is ensured with its height adjustment feature.
  5. Playback and storage of the table can be accomplished without removing the net.
  6. It has 4″ rolling wheels, so easy to transport.

Product Details

  • Material: Alloy Steel and Wood
  • Play Dimensson: 60 x 54 x 6 inches
  • Indoor/Outdoor Use: Indoor only
  • Table Weight: 265 pounds

Positives

It’s a heavy table! I never felt any shaking or vibrations while playing.

It is impossible to imagine a more consistent bounce. In addition, it folds easily.

The wheels roll effortlessly.

Negatives

It is a heavy table! You have a big job on your hands until you get everything up the stairs and put it together.

Pros
  • No shaking and vibrating
  • Great and consistent bounce
  • Easy to move around
  • Easy to fold
  • Playback option
Cons
  • Really heavy before assembling
  • Assembly takes time

3. Butterfly Europa 25 Ping Pong Table

It is the most compact table tennis table in Butterfly’s range, taking up only 6″ of space when stored.

German engineers created a simple and elegant design that meets all ITTF standards.

Putting this together is very easy by removing the legs, unfolding them, and attaching the net.

An anti-skid top and strong steel rim prevent the top from scratching and tearing.

This professional quality net set from the National League completes your table tennis experience.

This table is perfect for tournaments, clubs, schools, or gaming rooms at home.

It measures 60″ long by 55″ high by 6″ deep when unfolded.

The table is easily stored by turning each half over, folding in the legs, and rolling each half into position on 5″ heavy-duty wheels.

All in all, it’s the best regulation table for recreational play indoors with an exceptional 5-year warranty.

Features:

  1. ITTF-certified to meet exacting standards.
  2. You can trust this indoor ping pong table to deliver professional quality.
  3. You can ensure consistent play with true bounces in clubs, institutions, and game rooms.
  4. The halves are independent. The storage space is only 6 inches.
  5. It includes a ping pong net set approved by the National League.

Product Details

  • Material: Metal and Wood
  • Play Dimensson: 60 x 55 x 6 inches
  • Indoor/Outdoor Use: Indoor only
  • Table Weight: 266 pounds

Positives

In terms of stability and sturdiness, other friends’ tables aren’t even close to this one.

Besides looking great, it also plays well. It’s easy to assemble, with a nice net included.

I recommend getting one if you can afford it.

Negatives

If you didn’t read everything carefully, it could be surprising for you to find out that this table consisted of two separate pieces.

When folded up into a very small space, it also can’t stand up on its own because it can’t stand straight – it has to be leaning against a wall.

Pros
  • Heavy and well built
  • Best recreational purpose
  • Best quality net set
  • Not much assembly required
Cons
  • Expensive

Butterfly Ping Pong Paddle Reviews

1. Butterfly Timo Boll Shakehand Ping Pong Paddle 

The first thing you notice about this racket is no texture on both sides.

The surface is smooth on both sides, but you can still hear the familiar “thunk” sound.

It is the main reason for putting this paddle at the top of this section of the Butterfly review.

The rubber cushion on really cheap rackets doesn’t have that feature.

I believe that has something to do with how it is applied to the racket.

You may feel your ability to hit the ball is faster and harder on this racket.

This may be due to the sponges’ ability to translate force efficiently.

This racket is described as being designed for shake-hand holding in marketing materials.

However, I keep my racket with a pretty loose grip, which might have affected how effectively I played with it.

There was a noticeable improvement in connection, sound, and power, resulting in a more efficient topspin.

In terms of durability and whether or not the rubber will peel off with time, I cannot comment at this point.

But it is handled well, the paddle feels heavier in hand, and the handle has a nice feel.

Although this seems like a negative point, it conveys a better picture without burdening you too much.

Rackets that are lighter and thinner feel more like you are waving a fan around and you experience the paddle as a mere extension of your hand/arm.

I liked the substantial feel of this racket.

All in all, I believe this racket is an upgrade from your old one and better than the low-end ones. 

Features:

  1. Timo Boll table tennis rackets come with two Ping Pong Balls.
  2. As a result of its high speed and spin balance, Pan Asia table tennis racket rubber makes it easy to strike the ping pong ball.  
  3. It is available in five models. The sponge and rubber thickness of each ping pong paddle differs.
  4. This racket is popular with beginners but can also be used in international tournaments of the International Table Tennis Federation.
  5. You get 2 ping pong balls with the Timo Boll 1000, 2000, and 3000 paddles, so you can start playing table tennis right away.

Product Details

  • Size: Standard
  • Material: ‎Pips-Out Rubber and wood
  • Level: Beginner
  • Weight: 0.39 Pounds

Positives

The rubberized and sponge design of the Butterfly allows the ball to move without as much force.

This design will let you improve your spinning technique.

Moreover, this design features a slightly extended bottom edge and handle, and its weight provides a nice counterbalance to its power.

With the Butterfly, you’ll feel like a pro, even if you can’t play like one.

Negatives

Getting used to not hearing that sound can take longer than getting used to the feel of the Butterfly.

I didn’t realize how much I connected sound with performance.

Pros
  • A pro sound of hit
  • Well built
  • Allow more spin
  • Perfect weight
  • Smooth sides
Cons
  • Not for professionals

2. Butterfly Wakaba Shakehand Table Tennis Racket 

The Butterfly Wakaba series of paddles is a great choice for a beginner getting into the sport.

Thanks to the Wakaba rubbers, this lightweight racket offers a softer feel and a fantastic amount of control, plus good spin and passable speed.

Rackets that offer good control are the best choices for beginners.

This wooden handle appears to be of higher quality than the last six I got in this price range, but it felt a little rough around the edges.

To smooth out the wooden playing surface, I used two types of extra-fine sanding pads.

I did not remove the protective plastic film on the playing surface.

After that, I used slightly coarser grade sandpaper to chamfer the plywood edges.

The result is smooth and pleasing to the touch.

To me, the main difference is a case for protecting the rubbers.

It would be best to get something to protect the rubbers from getting damaged since this isn’t common for this price range.

Even at this price range, the rackets won’t be thrown around the room when you’re done.  

Features:

  1. You can spin and speed up with this paddle since it contains 5-ply wood and Wakaba rubber.
  2. Inverted red and black Wakaba rubbers are used with Butterfly rackets.
  3. Every Wakaba paddle includes two Butterfly ping pong balls.
  4. Beginners, intermediates, or aspiring professionals will benefit from this ping pong racket. The racket is ITTF-approved for tournament play.

Product Details

  • Size: Standard
  • Material: ‎Pips-Out Rubber and wood
  • Level: Beginner
  • Weight: 0.5 Pounds

Positives

I noticed the sponge is located on the inside of the racket rather than the outside like cheaper rackets.

The ball moved harder and faster as a result.

Furthermore, I felt that the handle was more “solid,” and the ball could be more controlled.

Negatives

There is some weakness in the wood connecting the handle and blade.

There is nothing spectacular about the handle, but it has been well finished.

For everyday play at home, this will work fine.

Pros
  • Good spin and control
  • Great rubber
  • Best for beginners
  • Reasonable price
Cons
  • Little heavy

3. Butterfly RDJ S2 Shakehand Table Tennis Racket

Butterfly RDJS2 has a 5-ply wood design made from Spryer rubber, providing you with an edge with spin, speed, and control.

Players around the world prefer the flared handle design.

This paddle is ideal for players at all levels, whether beginners, intermediates, or professionals.

The paddle is an okay choice for those who aren’t looking to spend a lot of money on a top-of-the-line paddle.

I found the control to be fantastic, and I could put a decent amount of spin on it easily. 

I also found the quality to be excellent, and the grip was comfortable in my hand.

Furthermore, I know which paddle is mine because it has a different color pattern on the handle than the others.

All in all, it isn’t the best paddle I have ever used, but I believe it performs as well or better than paddles that cost twice as much.

I recommend it.

Features:

  1. It comes with 5-ply wood and Spryer rubber. This paddle gives you speed, spin, and control.
  2. Butterfly table tennis rackets with inverted red and black Spryer rubbers will allow you to beat your opponent with a combination of speed and spin.
  3. You can power your shots with this ping pong racket because it features a 1.7mm sponge.
  4. You can grip the handle with ease, thanks to its flared design. This red, white, and blue shake-hand table tennis paddle features red, white, and blue colors on the flared handle.
  5. For tournament play, this racket is ITTF-approved and also suitable for beginners.

Product Details

  • Size: Standard
  • Material: ‎‎Spryer rubber and wood
  • Level: Beginner
  • Weight: 181 grams

Positives

This is an excellent value for the price.

With this paddle, I had more control than with the entry-level paddles I had been using (as well as learning how much I still need to learn!).

This paddle feels well made and has a nice weight to it.

The handle and paddle are well merged.

Negatives

Unlike all other rackets I have used, this one has a short handle about two inches shorter than any other.

Pros
  • Lightweight and well made
  • Best for recreational players
  • ITTF-approved
  • Nice grip and spin with control
Cons
  • Not very fine for serious players

Butterfly Table Tennis Ball Reviews

1. Butterfly Easy Training Table Tennis Balls

My evaluation of the new Butterfly poly ball is the best since Butterfly delivered precisely what was expected.

A sphere with no visible seam effect, playing precisely as expected.

It is the main reason for putting this ball at the top of this section of the Butterfly review.

I am not especially happy with the poly (plastic) balls compared to the older celluloid balls.

The balls have been slowed down even further than before when we transitioned from 38mm balls to 40mm.

Halex’s 38mm ball is my favorite table tennis ball, and I prefer it over any 40mm ball.

I grew up playing table tennis with 38mm balls.

I am reluctant to play with a ball that has been redesigned to make following the ball easier for television viewers.

A “heavier” feeling is evident in the play, and the ball can certainly be hit harder without being overshot.”.

I’m not reviewing them based on nostalgia; I’m rating them because they are well-made balls that perform as they should.

So far, I have played with them for a couple of evenings.

They seem to last well, spin quite easily, and react to bounces as anticipated.

Players will have to adjust to the game slightly because it is different from celluloid.

Features:

  1. Butterfly’s new Easy Ball is perfect for practicing multi-ball drills.
  2. Designed to last a long time compared to most plastic balls
  3. Butterfly is using new manufacturing process; it is easy to create round balls with amazingly consistent bounce.  
  4. Perfect for training with robots

Product Details

  • Weight: 0.01 pound
  • Star Rating: ‎‎0 Star Rating
  • Material: Plastic
  • Color: White

Positives

Table tennis balls of this quality are great for beginners.

Their roundness is even and consistent.

These balls’ bounce, impact, and speed remain consistent after many hours of intense use.

Negatives

If you are interested in buying these for a table tennis league, let me know.

Unfortunately, these balls are not legal. However, these still work well for practice.

Pros
  • Consistent bounce and speed
  • Well- Rounded
  • Best for beginners and robot practice
  • Long lasting
Cons
  • No star rating

2. Butterfly R40+ Table Tennis Balls

Butterfly continues to produce quality products like this 3-star ball. Butterfly’s products are around par with the competition in terms of price.

When it comes to table tennis, you can’t go wrong with the most revered name in the game.

Furthermore, these balls have a gorgeous finish that helps the ball grip for excellent control and spin.

They are the balls we use for tournaments.

This ball could be a contender for someone who’s still looking for their perfect ball.

If you are looking for a decent (but still good quality) ball to play with, I suggest you check out the DHS 40+ 3-star (red package), which is about half the price.

Moreover, I love the packaging of the Butterfly balls.

These balls are packaged in a rigid retail box to keep them in tip-top condition to keep the balls safe during transit.

Features:

  1. ITTF-approved and perfect for tournament play
  2. Ping Pong Balls with an even roundness bounce better and are more durable
  3. Three-star ping pong balls made of polypropylene closely resemble traditional celluloid balls in terms of bounce
  4. Under strict quality control, this ball is made in China and has high uniformity, fast rotation, and good balance.

Product Details

  • Weight: not mentioned anywhere
  • Star Rating: ‎‎3 Star Rating
  • Material: Plastic
  • Color: White

Positives

These are more appealing to me than Joola seamless balls.

I find them to be faster.

They aren’t completely seamless, but they are quite durable and have maintained their spherical shape for a long time.

Negatives

The only thing I wish it came in orange is that it would be more eye-catching.

I don’t know why the manufacturer is making this mistake.

Pros
  • Tournament quality balls
  • Worth the price
  • Amazing spin
  • Fast balls
  • ITTF approved
Cons
  • Not completely seamless

Butterfly Table Tennis Table Cover Reviews

1. Butterfly Weatherproof Table Tennis Table Cover

This table cover is the most premium Ping Pong Table cover you will ever find that can unzip to cover the table flat.

That’s why I added this particular Butterfly cover in the Butterfly review.

I purchased other covers, and they didn’t last outdoors for more than one year.

Compared to other lightweight covers, the cover blows right off when it’s windy.

On the other hand, the one here is heavy and durable.

It comes with a unique handle that allows them to be removed quickly.

Besides preventing dirt and debris from accumulating, the handle can also be hung when not in use.

A two-way zipper makes it easy to secure and open the handle.

Only I don’t particularly appreciate how severely it droops at the top since I folded my table tightly at the top, creating a triangle shape.

As a result of the excess fabric, a very nice-looking cover can look like a tarp thrown over a table.

All in all, you would not regret the quality of this cover for almost every type of ping pong table.

Features:

  1. Keeping your table tennis table clean and free from dirt and debris is easy with this high-quality table tennis table cover. The cover is very useful for protecting your table from rain and snow in an outdoor setting.
  2. Compatible with Butterfly tables and other standard-size tables. This piece is 60 1/2″ long, 29 1/2″ wide, and 59″ high.
  3. You could use a cover depending on how you store and play your ping pong table. In a playing position, this cover would easily cover the net.
  4. Like most other table covers, butterfly Table Tennis Table Covers aren’t made of cheap PVC or cheap tarps.

Product Details

  • Dimensions: 13 x 9 x 3 inches
  • Material: Nylon
  • Color: Black

Positives

The quality is excellent, and worth the extra dollars.

It is zipped from both sides, which allows you to easily put it on and take it off without ripping.

Negatives

The top fills with water when it rains, but it does not leak.

It would have been nice if it was a foot longer since my table is outside.

Pros
  • Heavy weight
  • Comes with a handle
  • Cover the table in playing position
  • It has 2 zippers
Cons
  • Little expensive

Conclusions

There are a lot of top players and coaches Butterfly sponsors around the world, including the US, Korea, Canada, Germany, Japan, Poland, and many more.

The company sponsors equipment and clothing and tournaments and open camps and clubs, which are located throughout the Americas, and provides training.

So, all the products from Butterfly are reliable.

You have to look at your needs and skill level.

In the end, I would never say to look at one brand always.

Just try to explore different brands like me if you can.

This particular Butterfly review is the best knowledge I have shared with you.

I am sure it would be helpful for you.
