“I’ve been using Butterfly equipment for a long time and the blades with the famous players are very special to me. I’m very happy that I now have a blade with my name on it.”


“I like the good ball retention of this blade. It’s easy to control my service, receive and stop, and to block against the strong shots.
The gold lens on the grip is a beautiful accent. I also came up with the idea of the “PF mark” with the initials. I think it’s a great, simple and timeless design and I hope you like it too.”

Franziska Innerforce ZLC

Patrick Franziska, leading member of the German national team is using this particular blade. This is an Innerfiber blade combined with ZL Carbon fibers close to the core wood, utilizing the high reaction and the touch of long dwell time. It is recommended to players looking to enable powerful offensive play and passive control simultaneously.
The special design with a shiny lens bearing his initials inside the plain colored handle, expresses the attempts to find light through the strict daily training routine.

Franziska’s choice

Tenergy 05 and Dignics 05 I’m using currently, at least in my opinion, are the best to the racket because the racket has already quite long dwell time, so I think it’s important to have faster rubber on it.
