aeroplanes ,no good
we are using aeroplane red and they are poor quality , we are having the corks fall of after a smash in some cases , we play 12 games a night and use about 18 birds.
I think they are over rated and to expensive at $28 .
I brought 50 dozen AF700 from Melbourne @ $22 doz and found them to be better than aeroplane red.
I was supplied a tube of Duck feathers , found them excellent and gave a few away to other clubs , good flight and durability. The problemwith these is with no Aussie importer I would have to buy them in 50 dozen at a time If anyone would be interested in buying any , maybe we could share the cost, or after christmas I may order to resell , hope to seel them arround $ 18 a doz

exchange rate fluctuation is a risk to small business i.e. shuttlecocks in Australia because the market is too small - it is wise to buy at wholesale price i,e >50 dozens for badminton clubs,

I agree , at the moment the dollar is good, so now is a good time to buy imports. we currently use aeroplane red and hiqua , I dont like either , and they are both around $28 per tube, I tried 2 tubes of AF700 and found them better allround so I got 50 doz in 78 speed @ $ 22 per tube. these are better than the above also better than the RSL classics we tried .
I am going to import 50 doz D2 duck feather ( MOQ) with a veiw to resell them .
I had a tube sent to me for trial and they are very good , I gave them to players from different clubs to try, all praised there reformance and durability ( under $20 per tube).
I have a club that will buy the 50 dozen of me , but will take less if anyone would like to buy a few tubes to try

The quality of any shuttlecocks would become worse and worse if they have been stored longer and longer because they would become very dry, lighter and thus brittle.

Price is $18, or even $14? How about quality?
Aeroplane green label shuttlecocks are very popular in Sydney. But there are some fake, Chinese domestic use quality and very old stock in the market. Their prices are very cheap, but they are not lasting.
One big badminton club in Castle Hill, Sydney purchased 500 dozens of Aeroplane green label via a guy called Ken. Those shuttlecocks are very brittle and slow. They used about 6 – 7 shuttles per game. Even they steam each shuttle, they still need 3 – 4 shuttle for a game. The worst thing is the shuttle is very slow and the players need to exercise excessive power to hit it. This would harm your arm, wrist, shoulder or back. I have to stop playing there. One committee told me the price of shuttle is only A$14 per dozen.

The price of Aeroplane Green has been dropped to A$18 this year in Australia. i think it is good, mainly due to our strong $A currency.

So far using RSL Tourney 1 and Ashaway Black. Looking to try Victor Green or Aeroplane Green. Any feedback much appreciated.

I always believe Aeroplane shuttlecocks are value for money especially in terms of quality, durability and consistency. The ratil price was dropped due to our strong currency. Now is the best time to try it. Yonex is good but expensive.
