Our club got 2 dozens sample of Arrow shuttles one year ago, but they broke after few shots. Nobody wanted to use them. The club just threw them away.

The feathers business is more complicated than we are led to believe. All feathers, both goose and duck, are first sorted into 3 sizes, large, medium, and small. Size is not a reflection of quality. In fact the large size goose feathers are used to make low quality goose shuttles because of their poor weight to lift index. The feathers are then graded into four quality grades. Finally, each grade class is then further classified into "bend" (shaft) categories. Here there is a contradiction. The high-lift feathers usually do not have very straight shafts because their feathers need to be less than symmetrical for lift.

Speed and Storage would affect the quality of shuttles
It is better to buy shuttlecocks from reliable sources. Buying from website or ebay is risky unless the seller has been established for many years with good reputation and has basic knowledge about shuttlecocks. Some sellers have no idea about the speed of shuttles and even do not know how to store them. They may import 10 cartons (500 tubes) of one certain speed of shuttles and are selling them for more than one year. They do not know the quality of shuttles would deteriorate if they have been stored too long or have been stored in hotter or drier areas. They may sell the wrong speed of shuttles to you. For example, a website seller based in Sydney may only have speed 77 of shuttles, but still sell them to cold areas such as Melbourne in winter. Those people bought them would think the quality of that brand and grade of shuttles is no good, but do not understand the problem is caused by the wrong speed.
Many players do not understand the importance of correct speed required in their area. They often used the wrong speed and then said the shuttles are too fast or too slow, thus they are no good. Shuttles used at wrong speed also adversely affect their durability. The players may miss the timing or need to use excessive power so as to damage the feathers easily. If they are too slow, you need to exercise excessive power to hit them and may damage your arm, shoulder, wrist or waist in the long run.
Some shuttlecock retailers have no idea of speed, either. They may only stock one speed of shuttles or even import the shuttles with different speed in different batch. In small islands such as Hong Kong, Singapore or Taiwan; one correct speed for that area should be OK. In China and Australia, the country is so big and the sellers must stock different speed of shuttles if they want to sell them in the whole country.
Some shuttle sellers just do not care whether the speed is correct. They only stock one speed in order to save their running cost and sell them to anyone who wants cheaper price of shuttles. Some even do not have any knowledge about shuttlecocks and try to sell them by internet marketing via advertisement in media. If someone is only carrying few kinds of shuttles as well as sell other goods not related to badminton in his/her website, do not purchase from them because probably the shuttles may have wrong speed and/or have been stored too long.
It is better to buy shuttlecocks from the sellers who are marketing the broad range of badminton products such as www.calibreaustralia.com.
