    I'm assuming best value = most bang for the buck. If yes, then:

    RSL Tourney # 1

    And if you are able to get the Tournment Team RSL Tourney # 4, then that's the best for the money. But you have to go to China and know the Head Coach of Team RSL. :D I got a hold of about 20 tubes and these special T4s are almost on par with the T1 in terms of flight and equal in durability! :eek:

    about CDN $20 a tube so around USD $18-19 ish...

    I can get tourney classic for $22. still have to find out what the shipping cost would be, if you're interested.

    some members here are rsl dealer I think. might be cheaper to get it from them.

    USD14/tube is very good already. Unfortunately, you don't carry 78 and 79 grains version :p for the Great White North.

    78 or 79???
    isn't that way too fast?

    i'm still uncomfortable using 77, 76 appears to be the best speed for me.

    Vancouver speed is 77, 78, and 79. We use 79 for most of the year.

    Just curious how well the RSL Tourney #1 last compared to Victor Golds. I'm still new to the game but recently purchased some Victor Golds and they dont seem to last at all. For me they seem to last at most 1 game then feathers would start to break off. Thanks

    RSL T1s last significantly longer than Victor Golds. If the Gold is lasting you 1 game that's great. We usually have to go through 4-5 Golds per game. If a serious, all-out attacking game, one tube per game is possible whereas the RSL T1 would be half that.

    Dink, I played with a guy that had some Airplane brand birds, with round tips. It felt very solid and the damn thing lasted forever. One of the guys we were playing with was a hard smasher too. I've been looking online for them but read the RSL Tourneys are great birds.

    Are you from San Jose?

    First, I'm in SoCal not NorCal.

    Second, the rounded tip shuttle sounds like the Aeroplane Green Label G1130. They are just OK to me. The EG1130 (Black Label) is Aeroplane's top shuttle and far better; the Black Label is one of the best shuttles I've tried.
