    Hi,

    just wondering which shuttlecock do players use the most.

    I use G1101 (green 49 or 50)
    i don't know if it is good or not, cuz the club doens't use other birdies..
    but i know it doesn't last long.

    ya., please gimme some suggestions as i may be the one who will purchasing birdies for the club later on.

    thanks.

    Hi,

    My group uses protech pt10. Its is quite durable, which can last for 1 1/2 game.
    i think in HK, they often use aeoplane shuttlecock.
    Unfortunately, i not sure what is the model.

    Those of you that use feather birdies, do you humidify them? It's amazing how long they last if you do .....

    Tai-Lai Green 49. I get them from Badminton Alley. Or Aeroplane Green from San Diego Badminton.

    I humidify them by dipping the feather portion in water and shaking off the excess. I also keep some damp cotton balls in the tube to keep the shuttles humid. Sounds excessive, but things tend to dry out very quickly around here.

    My favorite is the Jinque AAA (Ibf approved).. lasts about 3X longer than the As-40 of yonex and maintains consistent flight characteristics even if feathers are damaged.

    ok... however, i haven't seen this brand in HK just yet...
    Only Aeroplane, Victor, RSL, Yonex lynon and someothers can't remember the names are available in HK.

    once again, Aeroplane 49 Green is very easy to be damaged. Same as 50 white(better in grading)

    I want to try Yonex feather(as30, 40, or 50), however i couldn't find it in the stores i use to visit.

    the most common use in HK is G-1101(Aeroplane), not G1130 or EG1130, may be it costs much much more ..

    since a bottle of G-1101 is ~$10USD,
    and Victor(can't remember the model) it is white, and it say 77 or 78 on the top.
    around ~$12USD a bottle.

    I could use upto 5 birdies in 2 hours for both brands.. however, i think Victor is a bit more durable.

    I like to smash and hit the birdie really really hard, however, i sometimes hit it with the frame(of course unintended)
