    Yeah, Yonex Mavis 2000 or Carlton F1. Still, IMO even relatively cheap feathers would offer better performance (but less durability).

    i haven't tried this one yet but i'm sure it would fly better than mavis300's series. One of key feature of plastic shuttle is its durability, i wonder if mavis 2000 is as durable as the mavis 300/350/370

    MAV2000 fly closer to real feather than any of the shuttles before on clear. The smash slows down better but not significant. Back court slice is very interesting. May be you should try and see it. Net drop is about the same as the other plastic MAV300 and up.

    I like the MAV350s best, over the 370s and the 300s. best bang for the buck, as it were. I haven't yet tried the 2k, though, I really want to, I just can't find them anywhere...

    Yep Mavis 2000's are probably the best plastic shuttlecocks :D.
