    Hi all,

    Anyone used D-70 before. I was forced in to buying this brand :mad: as a replacement for my original Aeroplane (Black) order. Anyways hopefully it will be half decent. Anyone who has some experience with this shuttlecock please give your review.

    They are actually quite good. Easily lasts two games and the flight is consistent. A better and cheaper alternative compared to expensive yonex shuttles.

    Have you had a chance to test them yet? I'm interested in whether this brand is any good.

    Haven't tried them out yet.

    I have played with only three other brands, AS 10, 20 and another whose name I don't recall right now. AS 10 is not durable, so AS 20 is a good bet. But apart from a slight different 'feel' to the shuttle Aeroplane Black is on par with AS 20 IMHO durability wise, although I am biased towards As 20 a bit because of a better 'feel'. Aeroplane Black also tends to be a bit fast to my liking.
