    I am still loyal to sealion gold. Most consistent over the years (30 years) so far. Less headache. ;)

    What about Aeroplane Black Lable? Any comment? Or what's the most popular shuttle available in Penang, Malaysia?

    Sealion, my favourite since 90s during school time. Currently stick with C1101 premier instead of gold because both price are same at my place(klang). i surprisingly realise the shuttlecock last for three games in once upon a time(soft and hard hitting mix). Other days the shuttlecock easily stay fine for two games in terms of flight.

    hi guys. I just started playing badminton (i've played other racket sports b4) and i was wondering what sort of shuttlecocks should i buy? I don't really want to buy expensive ones coz i'm still a newbie. For regular players, i went to this site http://www.lazada.com.my/shuttlecocks/ coz they have promos and discounts so i was wondering if someone could recommend which brand/good deal should i get? they have Dunlop, Carlton etc etc. Thanks for the help!:)

    shuttlecocks ive used so far and their rankings:

    1. protech world class (very good durability and flight consistency. can easily last 2-3 sets each shuttle)
    2. rcl pearl/platinum gold/rsl classic tourney (bit lower durability but still good consistency. 2 sets maximum per shuttle)
    3. protech masterpiece/rsl gold (durabilty is not consistent. some are good while others can be very poor. one shuttle usually last 1-1.5 set and seldom finish the 2nd set. flight consistency is good though. rsl gold is the better choice since it is cheaper)
    4. wecan red/rsl silver (the wecan have good durabilty and better than rsl silver and even masterpiece. can last 2 sets per shuttle but poor flight consistency)

    Anyone knows what is the 2012 Official retail price for Aerosensa 30/40/50?

    I heard it jumped this year due to lousy rm-yen exchange rate :(

    Yonex sort of like always increasing the price. I have to say I hate Sunrise (Yonex distributor) for keeping increasing the price of Yonex string, they are like monopoly in this market. But nothing much I can do..coz Yonex string is still one of the best in the market.

    But for shuttles, there are a few shuttles out there as good as their AS30 with cheaper price.

    Example, RCL Black Silver.

    Sealion white and gold, same.

    The seller claim that white speed is fastest than gold. That all.

    But I don't feel any diff.

    SeaLion can last 2 games where feather getting soft and broken.

    Protect World Class, proven can really last longer. 7 games [2 hours] only use 2.5 shuttles.
    The first 2 shuttles feather still intact just that getting soft but flying still ok. Keep it for next warming.
    Each shuttle can last for 2.5 to 3 games. 3rd shuttle i keep it for next round.

    No more RSL GOLD and SeaLion unless no choice.

    Almost all shuttlecocks will have different quality depending on batches. A shop owner told me that it depends on the season or weather. When it is dry season, the quality tends to drop.

    As for me, no longer going to Protech Masterpiece. The quality really sucks nowadays. As for world class, my group said that it is heavier and faster flight compared to the rest hence they do not prefer it as well... Protech Platinum is good and lasting but price above RM60...

    Changing to RSL Classic and it is good... but also has batch quality problem.

    Tried Kumpoo Match Point 88 and 99. I can say both also have the same kind of problem, which the feathers tend to come off easily (not the stem) and the feathers with the stem will get soft and out of shape easily... not going back to this.
