    AS-50 best... no doubt!!!
    Sea Lion C1101... great but a little fast for southern california. Tried the tipping of the feathers and it worked like a charm but a little troublesome.
    Aeroplane... pretty good.

    I like Yang Yang 300B shuttles. Very good durability for the price and it flies great.

    Been using AS-40 and Victor Champion for many years...
    Speed's just right, good flight, and fairly durable....
    A bit on the pricey side though...

    anyway bought a tube of Ashaway Official recently...
    tried playing .. speed and flight ok but somehow, doesn't sound quite right....
    anyone else uses ashaway, and if so, what colour ? There is this "Attack" model that is really cheap !

    personally i prefer yonex as-40 best, but since theyre bloody expensive then i have to settle for either aeroplane or swallow.

    Mostly use Epsilon Yellow (great flight and durability but kinda pricey) and Yonex AS-40 (good flight, durability ok)
