Anyone know where to buy Lining +300 in Singapore?
What is the price range?
i have never use plastic shuttles b4... prefer feather...
but tried...so many brands....still duno whats best for training only
any recommendations? n whats the price range?
u tried sealion????
How is the quality and price of sealion as compare to RSL classic.
Presently we are using RSL but find that the quality varies so thinking of changing.
Would appreciate if you can tell us more.
i used to use sealion gold. nowadays i just use rsl silver. pretty decent.
yes Definitely feathers.....
I like the feel of feathers much better, but my high school league only uses plastic. So only plastic for me.
feather has a good feeling when we play it!trust it!
What does one do if one tournament uses feathers and another one uses plastics. One needs to adjust to them and its quiet a challenge. For example AS2 as compared to AS40 is quiet different in terms of speed and both of them are quiet different from Mavis 350. Has anyone mastered this frequent changes? Are there any pointers that can help in this regard. The recent tournament i am playing is held in Kanson 50. I have never played with this one and was not comfortable at all with the shuttle. Fortunately i was able to beat a few folks in the first few rounds and now i am in QF. From here on i need to be better if i need to go any further.
weakens your string compared to feather?
Since plastic is almost more expensive than feather in Sweden/Denmark I play with feathers.
The Yonex Mavis 350 is about 10 euros for 6 shuttles' and I found a store in Denmark that sels Li-Ning A300 (12pcs) for 15 euros.
we usually have AS30 in training.
AS30 for training? The richie rich club?
nope, normal club. but good material for training of highest leagues.
AS30 for training . Wow...I want to be in your club . You must use AS40 or AS50 for matches.
yes, we do.
We had Chao Pai Reds, Aeroplane Black for training.
I would train with feather anyday than plastic as for training, it is crucial you get a sense of feather shuttle timing, and well as feather feel since it may be beneficial when you actually play a match.
We use plastic for recreation though, but it is hell on thin gauge strings..
One on one they may cost the same but plastics are way more durable so in the end much cheaper.
It's funny how this thread has lasted through 12 years without stopping, I'm quite amazed at how much info I am getting out of this thread
I use plastic, mainly because that I basically have little to no experience with feather shuttles, and that durability is one of the biggest factors that come into my mind while I'm buying birds.
In the end it comes down to balancing between cost and playability.
If you're in Asia where it's cheaper, feather should be your first choice, simply due to greater playability of all types of shots and development of proper stroke techniques.
