hello guys! Im in Melbourne. Any recommendations for buying shuttlecocks here?
I seen people recommending Qi-Hua Red, RSL Classic Tourney, RSL Tourney No.1 etc. Im not a pro player and play at an intermediate level (i have no idea how to grade myself). Do I need these shuttlecocks or I can opt for cheaper ones instead?
Seen phandrew recommending mybadmintonstore and wingee in the post above too. But I hope to get some more advice on which brand+type of shuttlecock I should go with 1st before buying. Thanks!

I completed a review of many shuttlecocks that can be bought in Melbourne and overseas. I will post it up later when i have time.

DinkALot allowed me to use his table for making his review so I thank him for letting me use it.
There are many variables that can affect the performance of the shuttle:
Age of the Shuttle
Exposure to the Elements
Feather Consistency from the Factory
Bad Batch, Good Batch
Different Grades for Different Countries
If your findings do not agree with mine, don't worry. Again, there's such a wide disparity among all the shuttles.
I would not be surprised if there are differences in results, as I have found on quite a few occasions.

i've noticed that there are no epsilon shuttles in the review...well...nevermind...i was just wondering where did phandrew get RSL Classic Tourneys from. i found some on e-bay but they were a bit too heavy on the pocket (approx AU$ 25 per tube).

Shuttlecock Price Increase
Just want to let everybody know that the manufacturer of Aeroplane shuttlecocks has increased the prices by around 15% recently. Also Aussie dollar has been depreciated by about 17% in the last three weeks. You will expect to find out the prices of shuttlecocks increase more than four dollars in the near future.

As the old stocks of feather shuttles run down in Australia, you will see substantial price increases with new stocks. This is due to 2 reasons, the strenghtening of the Chinese currency and the weakening of the Australian dollar. With higher prices the acceptable prices players will be prepared to pay will either force players to use lower grade shuttles or for the more wealthy to pay more.
