    I find the 300B's much much better than the Tourney No1's

    I'd stay away from the epsilon greens. if you're going to try epsilon only try orange or gold. $26.50 and $29.50 is ridiculously expensive though. probably only worth trying if you can get them for say $22 and $25 respectively.

    Default Aeroplane shuttlecocks

    Aeroplane shuttlecocks probably are the best. They have four grades, black label (lasts about 1.2 to 1.5 games of 21 points for C-grade and up players, only $22/dz), red label (lasts 1 to 1.2 games, $19/dz), green label (lasts 0.8 to one game, $17/dz) and blue label (lasts 0.7 to 1 game, $15/dz).
    They will last even longer if used by ladies or D-grade players.

    The sole agent of Aeroplane shuttlecocks is in Sydney, NSW. But the shuttlecocks are even selling to VIC, SA, QLD, WA, and New Zealand. Contact james@calibreaustralia.com or visit www.calibreaustralia.com if you are interested in trying them.

    i went to look at shops in melbourne. AS-10 are $40 a tube...what a sad place we live in However i use AS-40 brought overseas The mavis 500 plastic shuttles are also very good, they fly pretty close to feathers, or infact better than cheap feathers. After half an hour of intense practice with my friend it was still in perfect condition, even the cork wasn't dented at all.

    Casual players can buy shuttlecocks from retail stores, but badminton clubs should buy directly from wholesalers. AS10s is the lowest grade of shuttlecock Yonex purchases from a manufacturer in China. One shuttle cannot last for one game. It is not worthwhile to buy a tube of lowest grade of shuttles at $40. If you play regularly, you should buy better shuttles from wholesaler.

    Two of Melbourne biggest badmintion associations, Mountain District Badminton Association (MDBA) and Central Badminton Association are using Aeroplane black label's shuttles which only cost them $22/tube. MDBA uses about 100 tubes per month. Visit www.calibreaustralia.com.

    Default "Arrow" shuttle by Yonex Australia not genuine Yonex's.

    Just want to warn badminton players in Australia.

    Recently, there is a new brand of shuttlecocks named "ARROW" supplied by Yonex Australia Pty Ltd in Australia market. Many people think that it is a Yonex Japan's product by mistake.

    Our club has tried "Arrow" shuttles. The quality is not good.

    Just a suggestion from me, putting up the prices for each item would be very very very helpful

    Thanks for your suggestion. However, as a wholesaler rather than retailer, we need to keep our prices low in order to sell to most of our Aeroplane shuttlecocks to many big badminton clubs/associations. Some of our club customers may add $2 - $5 a dozen to sell to their individual members. It is smart to buy from a wholesaler instead of retail store.

    I've just tried Aeroplane black and I must say I'm completely satisfied. Excellent flight and durability and for the price you pay, it is worth it. Bye bye aeroplane green And to phandrew, Aussie only imports AS10 and AS20 though I do not know what the reasons are.

    considering AS-10 is $40 here, i'm guessing they don't import 30, 40, 50, cos they'll be like $100/tube lol
