    Alright big debate in my mind here...I've read reviews about all three of these shuttles and they were all different...

    Here are my choices:
    Black knight 6800 High performance 37$/12 shuttles (3.08$ per shuttle)
    Yonex Aerosensa 20 35$/12 shuttles (2.92$ per shuttle
    Wilson Championship 5$/3 shuttles (1.67$ per shuttle)

    The best reviews oddly enough were in favor for the Wilson championship shuttles. Which ones last longest? Which ones should I get? Any experience with any of these? How should I hydrate each one? What is your experience with each one in terms of games.... 2 games each?

    ANY info you can provide will be very helpful, I will be playing tonight with mavis 350 if I haven't made a decision yet....so please give me your opinion....I hate those damn mavis 350's!!! lol

    why not try this brand YOUHE ... u can view more details at www.badmintontrade.com for this brand info.

    me and a few pro players tested the quality and is very good since they are under licensed manufacture for Yonex Japan but a local company in Malaysia engage this original Yonex manufacturer to manufacture and package as their own brand called YOUHE.

    Because YOUHE is not in the three choices I said I had. I refuse to have anything shipped because if I get an opened tube I then have to pay shipping to ship it back to them and then pay shipping again so they can send me a new pack. I buy my equipment at local stores, no shipping EVER. Unless it's on badminton central from another member. Anyways too late now, I'm sticking with mavis 350 for cheapness and durability, however I will be getting red tops from now on.

    feather shuttlecock in Canada

    Hi,

    I take the same road as you last year.

    Feather shuttlcock are such money consuming here.
    Local store just rip you off with they 35 price tag.
    I think in Montreal you can find a RSL dealer that can sell you tube sub 25$.
    Otherwise, you can avoid shipping cost.

    Why not give Aeroplane shuttlecocks a try? EG1130 is a much better choice than AS-20 with better priceing as well.
    I am sure there are stores in Canada that carries them.

    Slightly off-topic:

    It seems Adidas is coming out with 3 qualities of nylon shuttles, and claims are that they will be (probably) the best in the market...

    Highly recommended YOUHE S100! I have been playing with it for more than a year now. Reasonable price with good quality.

    I can get BK 6800s for ~23-25$ if it is something that you're looking for.

    Tested them this week and they seem to be comparable to RSL Classic Tourneys.
