    i used to buy chaopai shuttles from bangkok but the shops at national stadium ('sanam suk') stop selling these shuttles. imho very durable and value for money. not sure if you still can get these in thailand

    the locals players in saturn group if i recall correctly use RSL shuttles..

    Thanks Sealman for providing FBT website. The FBT-5000 look interesting and cost 590THB (S$24.6). Will probably buy some for my group to try out. BTW, anyone tested Kumpoo Power Shot Nano 2300H(4U) racket. Please provide some feedback on the power, control and defence of this racket. Thanks. :D

    Just tested FBT-5000 shuttlecock. This shuttlecock is make of duck feather in Thailand. The price is about S$23/tube and durability is average. IMO, not worth buying. :cool:

    FBT isn't honest in badminton.Quietly so long ... long time.

    A lot of all choose RSL silver and ace.

    I think other brand in KL is better than FBT such as protech masterpiece or Pro ace and many more.

    Is it right? The cost of Red is about 370THB and Gold is about 470THB.

    People in the picture is owner of the brand Yimnex(red) and smash(gold).

    You can buy its at national sport stadium.

    These 2 brands are excellent, especially "smashes" brand. They just won't die. Highly recommended.

    I think they are made of goose feathers (maybe somebody can confirm)
    The below is just my opinion. Take it with a grain of salt. The best way is try them yourself.
    The best way of compare to the RSL silver. I usually use either RSL silver, Yonex AS10, Yimnex or Smashes for my club sessions. The quality of Yimnex (red one) is just slightly below RSL but the performance to price is very good compared to the RSL. But the Smashes brand is very good quality, on par with RSL and also more durable.
    Just my 2 cents.

    Red from duck feathers and gold from goose feathers.
