    I agree , at the moment the dollar is good, so now is a good time to buy imports. we currently use aeroplane red and hiqua , I dont like either , and they are both around $28 per tube, I tried 2 tubes of AF700 and found them better allround so I got 50 doz in 78 speed @ $ 22 per tube. these are better than the above also better than the RSL classics we tried .
    I am going to import 50 doz D2 duck feather ( MOQ) with a veiw to resell them .
    I had a tube sent to me for trial and they are very good , I gave them to players from different clubs to try, all praised there reformance and durability ( under $20 per tube).
    I have a club that will buy the 50 dozen of me , but will take less if anyone would like to buy a few tubes to try

    i suggest you compare the quality of aeroplane green with AF700, $22 per dozen from www.shoppingmore.com.au if you buy >50 dozens

    I heard its AS-50 yonex shuttles have been stored for many years. They have become very brittle and the colour has been a little bit yellow.

    The quality of any shuttlecocks would become worse and worse if they have been stored longer and longer because they would become very dry, lighter and thus brittle.

    Price is $18, or even $14? How about quality?

    Aeroplane green label shuttlecocks are very popular in Sydney. But there are some fake, Chinese domestic use quality and very old stock in the market. Their prices are very cheap, but they are not lasting.

    One big badminton club in Castle Hill, Sydney purchased 500 dozens of Aeroplane green label via a guy called Ken. Those shuttlecocks are very brittle and slow. They used about 6 – 7 shuttles per game. Even they steam each shuttle, they still need 3 – 4 shuttle for a game. The worst thing is the shuttle is very slow and the players need to exercise excessive power to hit it. This would harm your arm, wrist, shoulder or back. I have to stop playing there. One committee told me the price of shuttle is only A$14 per dozen.

    I agree that it is difficult to know whether you are getting the real deal. I think if you try small quantities over a period of time, eventually you can build up the trust! Anyway i know that one of the club associated with SBA has purchased from them and its performance is that of green label aeroplane shuttlecocks.

    The price of Aeroplane Green has been dropped to A$18 this year in Australia. i think it is good, mainly due to our strong $A currency.

    I always believe Aeroplane shuttlecocks are value for money especially in terms of quality, durability and consistency. The ratil price was dropped due to our strong currency. Now is the best time to try it. Yonex is good but expensive.

    Our club uses RCL shuttles. We had tried RSL silver feather Tourney, Yang yang tactic 300b, sealion c110. Sealions were good but were unavailable now we using RCL shuttle.s They seem to be a little bit fast but would last on average about 1.5 31 pt doubles rally point games.

    You can get RCL shuttles in Australia? Where and how to get it? I got a friend in Australia interested but I didn't know you can get them in Australia.

    anyone know if it's possible to buy shuttlecocks from overseas and get it delivered via air mail? since they are made from feathers, it might not be able to enter australia. anyone know?

    shuttlecocks in australia

    it depends on how many dozens that you want to buy, if you buy bulk, air mail is impossible as they are quite bulky. if you buy small qty, it may be cheaper to buy it from local retailer eg www.shoppingmore.com.au check the price first, the price is very competitive in Australia this year as a result of our strong Australian currency at the moment. Local delivery will always be cheaper.

    what would you guys recommend for club play? standard ranges from beginners to intermediate.
    Victor Green or Aeroplane Green?
    prices are only a few cents different, i can get both for around ~$20/tube
