    Hi, I'm going to be in Calgary in June and would like to know where some of the cheaper badminton retailers are. I am looking for good cheap shuttles (don't care about brand name). I was wondering if someone could let me know the locations and the prices of shuttles.

    the feathers i play in calgary is victor and proace, both brought in from vancouver by mail order or from friends. Feathers shuttlecocks r made and come from china, taiwan, etc, so the vancouver's port should be the lowest cost source in canada. Yes, u can save $ by paying no sale tax in alberta but the added freight cost to calgary would eat that up. why dont u find a club in vancouver, they buy in bulk and can pass the saving to you.

    Thanks Cooler. I'm sure they'll have cheap shuttles at the club I'm playing in. Just thought I'd ask around to see if there were cheaper birds elsewhere :)
