Discussion in 'Shuttlecock' started by Stalker, Aug 13, 2002.
Plastic. It's kinda hard for a High-School student to afford feather birds :O
Are for non-competitiveplay where the aim is to try and hit the shuttle to one another and not to allow it to land on the floor. If you want to have some fun with a beginner, and get him or her interested in the sport, this is definetely the one to go for.
For all and any kind of competitive play, where the aim is to kill off your opponent. With it's superior flight-path and solid visibility compared to plastic shuttlecocks,(where it gets difficult most of the time to spot the shuttle when it travels at high-speed) even for training this is what you should be using, if your goal is to be a competitive player.
I don't know why, but I get really annoyed when using plastic shuttles. I feel like I wasn't playing badminton at all, but i guess it's just me.
Not only is the feel different, the sound as well
Feather, but the damaged feather ones.
my club uses feather shuttlecocks that were used from the last social when we practice.
feathers of course..
i'm surprised most people here plays with feather. feather for me last only about 10 smashes and it's gone bad. i play with a combined both smash and placement play. plastic to me last longer, are lighter, and make better sounds. one plastic will last about 20 feather i'm guessing. save money!
My whole league plays with plastic. We are pretty competitive.
Feathers are just expensive. Our school is recently built so we are a little short on cash probably.
I do not know if that had been discused, but there are cheap noname feathers on eBay:
May be better than plastic
I use plastics for recreational play and practice. Feathers die too fast.
i use plastic only for warming up strokes. any game will use feather shuttle.
I got my DHS 402 yesterday and tried it last night...
Not so bad I thought it will be. May be too fast but it can be corrected
And I payed only about $13 including shipping. Can I get better shuttles for this price?
You can get RSL classics for $14US. I found DHS 402 at training shuttlecock level so they are pretty poor. You can get the RSL classics which are one of the best shuttlecocks on the market for a dollar more.
Here you go.
Wingeebadminton increased their prices on shuttlecocks
But how do u even see the plastic shuttle when the smashes or steep cuts come lashing out towards you?? It virtually can't be seen right???
How much is shipping at Wingeebadminton? I didn't see anything on their website about it.
I always play with feathers. I would take a used feather over a plastic any day.
You have to email the owner so he can give you a quote on shipping. The email is on the homepage.
