    the above and how much? the price of shuttlecocks here in the UK is stupidly expensive, like 15 pounds+ (pound sign isn't working) for the aero 50's when IIRC they are round about 7 pounds in HK and the rest of asia. anyone on here know where i can get some imported in for cheap inc the price of shipping?

    Many Thanks

    Aerosensa 50 is S$30+ in Singapore, which is 10+ pounds.

    I'm not sure whether or not BadmintonAlley.com does international shipping, but it might be worth a look. Though i'm sure you could find somewhere around there where you can get cheaper shuttles?

    I'd suggest Hi-Qua.

    Last few times I've ordered 50+ tubes, I've got them for under $11 US/tube.

    Badminton Alley seems to have soem good deal, but many of the shuttle brand I've never used.

    You might try Sosan out of Toronto (I'll try to get the link)

    Well I find the pricing in UK to be exceptional cheap compared to Sweden.

    Areosensa 50 is possible to buy for £10-11 doz if you buy minimum 25 doz. And I ASSume you are going to buy in bulk....not one can at a time.

    This is not a great idea, because the quality of the shuttles will deteriorate if they are left for long periods (months is okay, but years is too long).

    yes but it meant as a group buy.
    the 500 doz was arbitrary, it could starts at 50 doz but it depends on how much discount u r seeking.

    Have a look at www.shuttles.com. I have bought the EG1130's from them and found them to be good.

    You ordered from Florida! They only get speed 77 (5.0 grams). Shouldn't badders in your area be using speed 78 (5.1 grams)?

    There is a Canadian agent who is in Markham, Ontario. He charges CAD 21 bucks a tube I think. And he can get you speed 78.

    Yes, I bought them from Florida.

    Hi Pete,

    I did buy them from Florida. The speed seemed to be pretty good and they last very well. The odd one needs to be tipped slower(78 might be better). We generally play with Victor Champion Green(Bought in Hong Kong) and Yonex AS50. The AS50's here are $34.25(CAD) per tube tax included. By the time I got the EG1130's here from Florida they were $26(CAD) per tube including tax duty and shipping(I purchased 6 tubes).

    If you could give me information on someone in Markham who would sell them at $21(CAD) per tube I would appreciate it. I(we) really do like the EG1130 shuttle.

    Thanks,

    James

    I agree, EG1130 is one of the better shuttles around.
    Contact Lee's badminton to see if they're willing to ship to you in bulk. There is a 1-800-461-1540 you can call.

    Just do a shuttle google search for shuttles. I pay £8 for magnum shuttles that are a very good match shuttle. If you pay £15+ for shuttles you must have moer money than sence (pound sign is working).
