    Has anyone try this new brand? It is sold in bishan MB sports shop. Too bad their goose feather has sold out. Left only duck feather. The owner says is comparable to yonex AS-40 and cheaper.

    Was thinking if this brand not bad and really as comparable to yonex, maybe those staying in s'pore, we can do a group buying cos the more you buy the more discount they give. But first the review. Anyone?

    The new batch of stock will come in next week. So if I try this brand, will give comment.

    Tested March-0ne 02 last Sunday with my intermediate skill group. It lasted for 2 games per shuttlecock in 21 points system and the used shuttlecock can be used for warm up in another session. The flight speed is pretty consistent throughout the games. IMO, it has the same performance as
    PT-10.:D

    The price is $28 per tube.

    Since hola4 has commented it is almost the same as PT-10..... well I don't know there's anyone or group want to purchase this brand (in sg)?

    For every additional tube we buy, 50 cents will be deducted. So if anyone looking to buy $25 and below, we need to buy between 7-10 tubes.

    I would also like to try out before buying too many tubes. That's why I ask if anyone or group like to try out, and we can do a group buy. I would definitely like to buy one tube to try out. Like I said, the more tube you buy, the more discount you get (though its just 50 cents cheaper with each additional tube).

    So anyone likes to try this brand? I could help to buy and pass it to you.


    PS: we don't have to buy 7-10 tubes. I'm just trying my luck to see if anyone wants to try this brand so we can get cheaper price (depending how many tubes we are buying).

    The owner says that this batch is much better than the previous batch as it is winter over at China, thus the feathers harvest will be thicker. This will allow the shuttles to be heavier, about excatly 5.0g, meeting BWF standards. I will give the review tomorrow.

    Hey i just tried the MB-02 shuttles today. It has the same feel and same characteristics as Protech PT-10 for a cheaper price by about $2. Durability is about 2 games. The flight is quite stable like the PT-10 itself. It is worth to get it.
