    since the price of yonex has gone up in the UK by 30%! my club are looking for a new feather. i did some research on t'internet and found a few options of buying direct in bulk from china. Sosan seem to have some good info on their website, and the prices are reasonable, not too cheap, but not too pricey. does anyone have any experience with them?

    or any suggestions as to other non mainstream barnads to try?

    thanks

    I tried the black tube for the first time last week and enjoyed my game. The feel it gave me was the same as the Karson shuttlecock. I have tried Protech shuttlecock to great extend and now I have decided to ditch Protech for Sosan.

    Our club has been using Sosan black for about 2 years now. It is very durable shuttle and fly very good. Only one thing is that speed 77 might be a little faster. The player in our club feel Sosan Black speed 76 is about the standard speed 77. Very happy with it.

    Dear Dan,

    My price is not what people usually pay for and it is useless tell you my source either since I am is US.

    I will rate Sosan Black flight and durability very close to AS40.

    I can't seem to find an UK stockist for these shuttles. Where can I buy some in the UK?
