    Wow, RM55 is about US$15 :eek: . I thought in Asia the shuttles suppose to be cheaper??? If bulk order, even in US, Yangyang 300B is only US$14.95. :rolleyes:

    Yang Yang 300 B have 2 models

    The model i m using is the Yang Yang 300 B Tournament Series

    Price for the Yang YAng 300 B ( standard model ) in malaysia is only at
    RM 45

    The different between this two model is
    ( from what i was told by the supplier )

    The standard model is produce during ( summer , spring ,authum )
    The Tournament model is produce during ( Winter )
    Therefore the Feather produce during winter season is much thicker
    than in summer , spring or authum therefore it will last longer .

    The Yang Yang 300 B ( tournament model ) had a W sign on the speed stick to the top cap . and a sticker stick at the tube mentioning Tournament model and moreover this tournament model only sell in Malaysia , Brunei and thailand . normally i make pre order from my supplier .

    if the model you mentioned that can buy at USD 14.95 , is a fantastic price already :eek: . but the bad news about this model is the only have one batch every year since winter only comes once a year . normally i will buy in bulk like 100 tubes . but have to keep it in cool place so that the shuttlecocks won't dry out , the durability will remain . this shuttlecocks only last me for half a year , after that we will use back the standard model or Other brand like Sealion C 1101 GOld or RSL Classic . ( can you check out the price of these two model in US ? )

    Heard from my supplier shuttlecock price will increase again in mid Of July:mad:
    think next time had to use CHICKEN feather to make shuttlecock .:p

    2 pcs of Tournament series = 3 pcs of standard model
    ( according to my game play )

    please keep me inform of any opinion you have . if i can't answer i will ask that dealer to give me a good answer because he is a specialist and i m only racquetman , just joking:p

    wilson shuttles are cheap enough to make practise/coaching shuttle
    but definately not for a game
    they hardly last half a game of doubles where there lot of smashing

    the newer wilson classic and wilson tournament shuttles are great, imo comparable to hiqua blue, but better for the buck.

    I use Wilson Tournament feather shuttles. In my opinion they are good; lasts about 1.5-2 games (normal game play) for us after steaming. In my opinion, the HiQua Blue are better grade than these.

    if hiqua blue > wilson tournament grade
    and wilson tournament = 1.5-2 games
    then hiqua blue > 2+ games?!

    haha good math and holds true at least in my experience. The HiQua Blue that I had used lasted almost always 2 games. The feathers would surely be ripped (but not too bad), but the flight pattern was still good and thus we kept using it.
