    yangyang 300b is great. Gosen S-200 is made by another factory now and is no good anymore.

    I'd go for the RSL shuttles. I've been using silver feather since last year. Its flight is excellent but its durability is horrible; so I only use carlton nylons for practice.

    Hi,
    U may consider using Protech Gold or Protech Masterpiece.
    Good flight and durability. Better than Yang Yang 300B. Tested Find Protech lasted longer in game.

    Are you referring to the Singapore version or the Malaysian version? I tried both versions and the Malaysian ones are not durable at all and are very fast shuttles.

    Bought the RSL No.1 Tourney and Classic Tourney shuttles from JB and could get used to the flight of the shuttles.

    Hi,
    I had tried Protech Gold bought from KL and it lasted more than a game.Cost me RM$39/- per tube.At the same time, I did bought a new version Yang Yang Tactic 300B and found it dont last. I had tried RSL Tourney No: 1 and found it to be average.

    Sea Lion C1101 gold ... the best so far from what I have tried at this level (YOnex, RSL, ChaoPai, MMOA, Takomi, Jinque, and some forgettable brands)..

    for economic purposes.. try the Sea Lion official number 1, pretty tough, good consisitent flight even when feathers are damaged a bit.. but a bit cheaper..

    regards

    Hi,
    I had tried ProAce AT 85 before and found it quite ok. But still prefer Protech Gold or Masterpiece. The latters gave better flight and durability. U try out and judge for yrself. V cost u RM$39/- n RM$42/- respectively.
