    I believe it won't be only Malaysia is affected.
    It is a global issue as the feather shortage due to bird flu.
    I am not sure can we disclose the price right here, I just get to know my supplier telling me a huge difference which is nearly to 10% for AS50.

    Speaking about the AS50, a friend went back to KL for a short while, asked him to pickup some tubes of AS50 but found that not many shops actually stock Yonex Shuttlecocks.

    Hi Gavin,
    In Malaysia, AS50 is not that common in use.
    There are many local/asia brands are selling much lower price and quality not too far from Yonex.
    So for Yonex, normally people are using AS30 which is like RM10-15 cheaper per tube.

    Where do you guys source your AS30, which shop if you dont mind revealing? Next time I return I can make a good purchase and ship it back to Melbourne.
    There are ton of Malaysian's here and they import in RSL, Sealion, etc.
    Yonex on the other hand, there is none.

    Time to time, different shop has sales tactics.
    So before you come back, you may ask and we will recommend you by time to time. :)

    The feeling of plastic is so bad...
    Rather use some local brand which is cheaper

    Agreed, their tax system for sport are very low.
    I even bought my socks there. MIT made in Taiwan socks are very good quality.
    Rackets also cheap :)
