    Hi there,

    I am having trouble finding correct information on feathers used in the RSL shuttles pictured. Would they be duck or goose feathers??

    Supplier says goose, but imo they don't hold up like goose feathers should. It seems misleading to advertise as goose but are in fact duck.

    Cheers

    The official RSL website doesn't actually say. I suspect a long time ago it was made of goose feather, but they've probably changed it. Get your supplier to get proof from RSL head quarters?

    Case in point, Victor Champions used to be goose feather. They are now duck feather. They have been replaced by the new Victor Master series which is made from goose feather.
