    The T-101 from TRUMP is IBF approved for international tournament grade. Do you have personal experience with this shuttlecocks?

    Thank you.

    When I read the headline, I thought Donald Trump built an IBF approved badminton club (maybe in NY). I wish that was true, haha..

    I have used them, they're pretty good, don't break very easily.

    I use it every now and then when I play with my teammate since he uses them only. They're pretty good in terms of durability and flight.

    The batches i have used here were not great, most of the shuttles wobbled in flight and didnt seem to be very smooth. One of the guys who used to import them has stopped saying that their quality has gone down recently and he has even had to send batches back to taiwan. This was the 101.

    The aeroplane blacks were the same price and seem to better at the moment, of course shuttle quality does vary from batch to batch and it could be that i club i play at just got a dodgy batch of them.

    I know Trump products pretty well. The older 101s were great (1.5 years ago). The newer ones, like Darren said, well, what he said, were not consistent. Some fly very well, some, wobbled.

    We are using trump T101 on our badmintonclub. It is pretty good but the speed is varying. The price is about 399NT/ tube in Taiwan but the owner said they will raise the price very soon :(

    If you wanna buy some I think you need to order 50+ tubes, otherwise they won´t send it.

    For almost same price I prefer Eagnas no1 competition. They are more durable than T101.

    Goodluck

    How much is the market price? If the quality is good as you all said, it is worth it.
