    I have some relatives coming to the US from Vietnam via some corporate thing with Honda.

    Anyhow I'm wondering what are some decent shuttles I can get them to buy for me when they come over. They are staying with us, least they could do is buy me some shuttles.

    The only one I know of and have tried is HaiYen...The Vietnamese badminton team uses them. I wasn't particularly fond of them. You can have a look at my brief review a couple of threads down in this section.

    Maybe you could ask your relatives what their best shuttles are. The ones I got were in a green/red tube...someone else said the blue/red tube ones are much better...frankly, I doubt it could possibly be any worse becoz the bunch I got were really crap.

    the place where i study got lots of vietnamese students n they brought lots of kinds of shuttles.Haiyen is one of them.All i can say is they're all typical.The shuttles r made for durability n speed,not playability.I'd love to use them because they can last for 2 games sometimes.But it's not really good to play with though.

    If available,try indonesian feather shuttle cock.It's one of the best i've ever used,in form of playability n speed.

    why bother to look for only good in durability n fast shuttle?If available,just look for indo or chinese brands.I believe they're much better in terms of playability,n also preety durable n reasonable speed.Reasonable price as well..
    Try to search n tell me what brands do they have in ur place,then i can give u some input.
