    Anyone tried the Li Ning A+ 300 shuttles before? If so, what did you think of it?

    That's supposed to be "the good stuff". I think its around $40US a tube.
    The A+100 is a better buy at $28.

    Actually the 300 is only $22.75 now on the LN canada website... I tried the 300 once from a friend, it's pretty durable, can last through a game of doubles pretty easily... I don't know what speed his was though so don't know if it's the same as the ones on the LN website...

    I play with the A+300 sometimes and I find them a bit fast. I live in Sweden though so the climate probably has a saying in this too.
    However, the good thing about these shuttles is that they last very long, at least from my experience. Even if a feather breaks it usually doesn't start wobbling and flies like it did with all feathers intact.

    I tried only 1 A+300, price is reasonable on Lining Canada site. Flight was good, much better than the A+70. Speed actually seemed a bit slow, but i'll try a few more in the future, might be the temperature that day.

    can anyone compare the A+300 to RSL Classics? they are pretty much the same price, wouldn't mind switching to li ning if they are more durable

    I just got some A+300 to try. They are pretty good. I did a comparison with the Aeroplane Black and I found the A300 a tad faster than the Aeroplane. Durability is definitely good! I agree with Wingu that even if a feather breaks, the bird doesn't start to wobble like crazy.

    I didn't really like the A300... Even after steaming, the feathers don't look so good after a hard smash...

    Try the A60+. Bought them from a sport shop for RM 58. Poor quality. Very brittle shuttles and the speed consistency is awful

    I changed my mind... Comparing the A300 to RSL Classics and Victor Blues... The A300 is a LOT more durable and consistent.

    A+300 are really nice to play with, (Would love to test out the A+600's one day) especially when you steam them the night before. I would say it's on par with the Aeroplane Blacks (Is it true the quality of the shuttles degraded? Contemplating whether I should get bulk A+300's or at the same price get Aeroplane Black (EG1130)

    i brought a trial pack of li ning feather shuttles of ebay recently. here is my reviews;
    A60 i didnt like the feel of these of shuttles. they did feel a little cheap and quite hard for some reason. Also they didnt seem to have the same flight as more expensive shuttles. However i felt the speed was consistent with other brands, not to fast or slow. They were also very durable easily lasting a game of singles between my partner and i with plenty of smashes etc. i felt they could last two games which made them good value for practice.
    A90 same as above. slightly better feel and flight and very durable. still nowhere as good as yy as30.
    LN grandprix my partner preffered these over the A90 but i didnt. i couldnt really tell the difference although I do think they were made of cheaper feathers.
    Below are some pictures of what the shuttles looked like after one intermediate mens single game with an RSL NO 4 for comparison.

    Although you can't really tell all the feathers on the left side of the RSL are missing. The li ning shuttles were exceptionally durable.

    If you purchase products from Li-NingOnline.com (Li Ning Canada website) and use ID code DT888888, you will receive instant online savings. Hopefully this helps those who want a save a few here and there. :)

    If you're looking for premium shuttles, I would recommend using the A+300. Li Ning Canada may carry the A+600. I am interested in trying those ones! Seems like they are out of stock at the moment.
