    Hallo people..

    Where I normal play we are using some RSL shuttlecocks and we got big problems with this shuttlecock, they are really slow and they break to fast.

    I was just wondering what is the good and not that expensive shuttlecock?

    And please also tell me which shuttlecock you are using.



    Thanks Flowin

    Yea, I've always thought that this is the best shuttle to play with, but naw..
    I found out of this when we were in Sweden last week, because I couldnt play with the narmal shuttle speed?..

    Our biggest problem is the slow speed and also it breaks to fast, because we must hit the shuttle so hard.

    1. Every brand has different grades of products. Please specify which grade from RSL you are using.

    2. If the shuttle is too slow, it's usually because you purchased the wrong speed ones.

    Ah, LB beat me to it. :) Yes, the proper speed is important. Also steaming the shuttles properly can add longevity and playability.

    any shuttle will break fast if u hit the shuttle sooooo hard and especially if there's mishits when u hit it fast. like the guy above said, wrong speed for the weather? hotter weather, slower speed. colder weather faster speed (in general) if you pay more, u can get yonex, but under hard hits and mishits, i doubt it will last longer either. there's always "better" shuttles, it is player biased.
