    Sorry for taking a while, Finally, here is my quick Review :) : "will be uploading the photos tonight"

    Taking each of the shuttlecocks out from the tube “speed 79”, the overall presentation of the shuttlecocks looks alright, except 3 shuttles had few feather in a yellowy / darker colour.

    Warming up, few drop shots/overhead shots in 3-4 mins. Shuttlecock few stable with itz speed and no feather breaking yet….
    Use the same shuttlecock and starting a game, after 5 points, shuttle speed slowing down a little. Feathers are still ok. First feather breaks in the middle of the 11, still ok so we didn’t change shuttle. 13, another feather breaks, it started vibrating oh well, just keep going until 15p after the third feather broken we swop to a new one.

    Other games we started with a new one, It last til 18:12 and 20:11, 12:17, 14:11,12:20 (we stoping using after 2-3 feather breaks)
    It's a OK shuttlecock to go with for it's price, all my review is base on the tube that we had (non-steam) and we are a group of Grade C players.

    RSL8? very smart, if you don't care too much about flight quality, it's a good choice.

    New brand? Its since 1928. The best shuttles they make are the RSL Classic Tourney. Excellent quality, one of the best shuttles out there but expensive. The good quality ones and the economically cheaper ones are the RSL 2-5. I myself use the RSL 3 for match play...
