    I've read several threads bwt shuttlecocks. But what i'd like to know are those birds that would be suitable to us pinoys in several ways. I say several ways because of, 1) that would be adaptable to our climate. 2) Economy (our pocket). We all know that the game is bit of expensive than tennis, so cost is one to be considered. And the other is quality. What brand that would cost less, at a range of P40 - 50, that would still be playable till 2 sets.

    hmm, here in olongapo we use RSL Official shuttlecocks.. its costs around 595pesos sa toby's sports.. my sister is studying in pampanga so once a month i ask her a favor to buy one tube at toby's sm pampanga and pay her as she gets back home.. my friends and i are not professionals (yet).. we play every sunday.. we consume atleast 2 shuttlecocks and 4 at most every week.. as for the speed, we use 76.. hth.

    if i were to rank our group from 1 to 5, 5 for pros and 1 for novice, i'd say around 2.5(average). we are improving slowly due to the fact that we meet only on sundays because we have work on the weekdays. oh i forgot to mention that we play for 2-3 hours during sundays.. :)

    If what u consider pros in ur group are standard "A"s, then you must be somewhere class "C". U'ree not average then, but advance. Quite good huh for a weekender player.

    This is my input. As your game improve, the durability of the shuttle will be a factor. Your smash might become stronger and the shuttle wouldn't last long. I'm not related to the maker of Aeroplane RED shuttles but for me it last a set for hard hitters. Sometimes if lucky and not mis hits it could even last for 2 sets. In some stores it can range to 900 pesos. But there are some who sells it for only 750 pesos. Just be sure of the vendors so you wont get the fake ones. :cool:

    We got this "NEW" aeroplane whose looks a little "Orange" instead of the normal "Red". This one plays, more or less, for two games without losing consistency in flight speed.
