    I tried their shuttle (not sure which grade) once or twice. Everything is to an acceptable degree but not super impressive. For the price, you might able to get other better deals. ;)

    With the recent increase in price, I doubt $9.5 per tube can be too good in performance or durability, never metion after shipping, your actual price might go even higher.

    It's hard to get a good deal under $10 these days. My suggestion is to see if you can get any deals from local area, at least, with the extra savings from shipping, you can "upgrade" your choice to another level. ;)

    in local, we dont have any badminton store, the only way we can order shuttle is online or through Yonex dealer(only brand is available), and I am just tired of paying 20 dollars a tube.

    For 20 bucks what kind of birds are you getting. Heck for that price, I suggest mass buying some aeroplane black label since they seem to be the only birds that haven't degraded in quality.

    Phoenix Shuttles are great for practice birdies (not too fast). You could get 2 tubes (tourney grade) for 20 bucks at http://www.waynesporting.com/

    just check out www.phoenixshuttles.com and email them for shipping costs. since there is doesnt have any info about shipping.

    also email waynesporting for shipping info too.

    If I am not mistaken, MMOA 850 seems a good deal for the $. Of course, the 850 I tried are from TW, not sure this MMOA 850 is on the same standard or not. :rolleyes:

    for practice/club, DTL official is pretty good shuttles if u can get them for under $12/tube. it has good flight and ok durability (only if u steam it). DTL Masters would be the higher grade.
