    Those shuttles are reccomended by shuttle-house also:
    It says: "Our most highly reccomended shuttles - Thomas Cup shuttles"

    The shopkeeper of shuttle-house reccomended it to me also, when i visited their main shop in Osaka.. but I didn't buy them because I was out of budget.. :crying:

    how much did he quote you for the shuttles, i'm guessing it's about 15-20% below the RRP?

    I dont remember.. we just refused the offer :X.
    The funny thing is, I can't find the prices on shuttle-house for those shuttles at all. I guess that they're either at full-price or maybe it must baught at their main shop in Osaka or something..

    Has anyone tested RSL officials? If so, what would you reckon the overall would be? (Referring do Dink's 'overall')

    i don't buy them personally, the captain of my club does. i think he gets them in bulk from centralsports or something, he normally orders 50 tubes per go so he gets a pretty good deal. however, that was the last batch and they are now upping the price by 10% after these 50 tubes are used up.

    sir dinkalot, if u think yangyang 300b (old or new?) is excellent+, u shud try a brand named "sealion". i think tis brand is only available in south n east asia n heard tat tis brand is used by chinese players for training. i saw three grade for tis brand so far, red(low), "black n white"(medium) n gold(excellent). to me, black n white is certainly better than yangyang 300b(new), not to mention sealion gold. tat's y i buy 1 more tube before the price rise. but do be careful when buying bcoz there's more n more fake sealion. so, everyone pls 'destroy' ur shuttlecock tubes instead of throwing it away bcoz it might be used to cheat people.

    other than sealion, protech is quite good too, especially masterpiece

    Mmmm Aeroplane black.. I can't find tubes of that shuttle in NewZealand, but I sometimes find used ones in the trash can.. even if they have wasted up feathers, they still fly extremely well. My favourite shuttle for now..

    Has anyone tried the Chao-pai yellow? How good is that? Especially information in a New Zealand context would be best!
