    Wondered if anyone else had heard about these new shuttles from a company called Kumpoo?? I noticed in this months Japanese Badminton Magazine that they are advertised as being better to use during practice as you can see the cork much better????? Not sure that would help much when you came to playing in tournaments with normal white shuttles, but who knows....... ;)

    Another thing I did was put a white powder at the cork of the shuttle before each practice rally. This way, I can see on my strings as where I'm hitting the shuttle. If your string is white, there are different colour poweders ^^. Try it :D

    I've e-mailed the company to see if they ship to Canada as I play in an all white gym.

    Will update if I hear anything.

    This could be great for the Collingwood crowd in Vancouver, and anyone who plays in white gyms. The durability and pricing though will be the key factors in the end though.
