So far, I think HiQua Team is the cheapest feather bird I can find in US market. $14 for 2 dozen. At first, I thought it must be really really crappy, like 2 hits will be done. but the price really attracted me, and I just bought 2 dozen to try it out. Tried feather bird last friday (in Boston). Overall, not too bad for such a cheap price We generally used this as practice and warmup. A fairly good one (been used by others for a few shots before) can last a warm up section which was about 15 min (drop, drive, clear, but no hard smash). I don't think it will survive for long for competitive games, however, pretty good choices for drill, warmup and social games (the ones with beginner friends). So, I guess I can now order a few more, just for warm ups and non seriously games in club. Just don't want to waste my Aeroplane ones in warm up drills.
