    How to double the life of your shuttlecock....You don't need expensive YONEX brand.

    If you have BALLY fitness member or know anyone that are members. Have them bring the shuttlecocks to the steam room, take it out and place it on top of the wooden steam where the hot moist air come out. Leave it there at least for 5 minutes. Then put it back in the tube. You can take it to play within 30 minutes of steaming or better yet, play it within 24-48 hrs. I know some of you thinking about home steaming, but from my experience, Bally Fitness STeam room works the best. I used DNA shuttlecocks, and now I can play 1 full game with heavy smashed w/out a feather fly off the birdy....I can see people keep on checking the birdy to see what brand am I using OVER & OVER ......i know what they thinking....."damn, this bird don't die".....

    Sir, it was originally posted as Post # 1. The powers that be edited the post. I cannot re-edit. You'll need to contact them. The best I can do is repost it.

    unfortunately, the table is nearly useless at this point, due to declining shuttle quality over the last few years, so most of his reviews have become obsolete. if you're really interested, I have the review saved, so i can post it on photobucket and send you a link, though it really wont do you a whole lot of good unfortunately.

    Best Value Shuttle for Casual Play

    It's a real shame that the review is now outdated - amazing how fast things change! Thanks for all your hard work though Dink.

    I have a question - What is the best shuttle I can get for $15 or less - just for playing with friends etc?

    Cheers
    Fabian

    Slight Update:

    Panda has tried some more shuttles recently and these are the reliable "Panda Approved" shuttles*:

    Aeroplane EG1130 (Black Label)
    Aeroplane SG1130 (Red Label)
    Yonex AS-40
    Yonex AS-50


    *Please note: this it doesn't necessarily mean all shuttles have degraded; it most likely was not retested. This post is just to inform the masses of "approved", good quality, proper flying shuttles.
