shuttlecombo.com recently launched their own brand of shuttles, champion and tournament editions for a very respectable price. I have just received 10 tubes of the champion edition and will be writing a brief review on their playability. I inspected a tube and have noticed a few details that could affect the performance. 1. the feathers on some of the shuttles were not perfectly aligned as some of the Chao Pai or Aeroplane shuttles I'm used to, as well as some imperfections with the individual feathers 2. bits and pieces of glue were stuck to some of the feathers. While they were removable, I don't want to be wasting time picking them off. 3. Lastly, the shuttles do feel light and not as heavy as other brands. (they are 77speed) That being said, I will be testing them on Thursday, one tube steamed, one unsteamed to see how well they play.
