    tend to find tat RSL No.1 quality drops a lil...
    the durability of the shuttle has dropped...
    it can now the most last for a game...
    switched to RCL Titanium which is a few bucks higher...
    very satisfy wif it and we started using it in most of my badminton session...
    lasted for bout 2 games usually... and without many hard smashing, it even lasted up to 4 games :eek: ... used onli 3 shuttles in 3 hrs...
    well... maybe we are just too 'soft' :D:D

    no worries mate...
    ya... been seeing lotsa ppl using Protech especially masterpiece...
    durability is ok but sometimes the quality doesnt maintain...
    one of my session is using Sealion... i tried and dont realli like it... although it does last for a game or two...
    my latest fav is RCL... tried Titanium and No.1 and been using them all the time now...
    where do you stay mate?
    if somewhere nearby can sell you 1 or 2 to try on 1st...

    Sealion is still the most consistent la. Other brands yoyo once. Once they cannot sell, they will up the quality a little. Then later, they will slack on the quality. You should know better if you played for many years. ;)

    Other than Yonex (which is good but expensive), it is a safer choice to get from these 4 popular brands. Of course I am not saying other brands are not good. Just these 4 are the safer choice since so many people using them.

    i.e. RCL, Sealion, RSL and Protech.

    Personally I am using RCL and I would recommend it. But other 3 brands should be ok too.

    May I Know how much is RCL price range? I am from Miri, Sarawak
    Normally we play with Yonex As5 or RSL gold which cost around 51 for RSL and 58 for Yonex

    I am looking for durable and good quality shuttles (that wont reduce power when hit). We are hard hitters.

    I have used RSL gold last year when the price only RM46 per doz. , but now the price is RM5+ and the quality only last 1/2 game or 1 game. The feather easily break.

    Then i changed to RCL Yellow/Green (cant remember the colour d), only last 1 game or less.

    Then i used Sea Lion Gold, good but at least 1 or 2 shuttles in one dozen is poor.

    Then i changed to RSL classic, shuttles to light.. fly like superman..

    Then i changed to PRotech masterpiece, it was awesome BUT after that the quality drop.

    Then i changed to Protech world class, superb (feather not easily break, the best shuttle i ever use) can last 2 games for hard hitters and 3 games at least for less smashes but now the quality oso drop d.. can only last 1.5 game now.. zzzz

    So now, i have to search for another shuttle to replace protech world class.. any idea?

    I think shuttles lasting about 1 game +/- is about the average life span of a shuttle.

    There are so many variables involved that can destroy a shuttle throughout a game (mishits, smashes, getting caught in the net, sheer force, etc). I tend to find shuttles which have lasted 1 game over will be already degraded due to the loss of feather etc., and I will rather grab a new one and save the used one for warm-ups/knock-ups. If you are so concerned about durability, there are always plastic shuttles :)

    Just for comparison purposes, I use RCL De Best and RCL Gold interchangeably and the shuttles usually last me 1 game +/-.

    And you got to bear in mind too, that the season's climate/temperature will have an effect on the quality of goose feathers (maybe?).

    Justin.

    Hey bro, how much do you get your RCL De Best and RCL Gold in Penang ?

    And also Protech Platinum and RSL Supreme in KL area. I am helping my uncle to look for shuttle.

    Thanks in advance.
