    With most recent degraded Aeroplane Black, it is still better and more expensive than RSL #1

    Thanks Badder for the comment. Aeroplane Black label is getting popular in Adelaide.

    my friend is in Hong Kong and he can get tubes of RSL Tourney #1 for 127/tube and if he buys 30 or more tubes it'll drop to 113/tube. that's HK dollars by the way, which is around $16 and $15 respectively. is that a good deal at all???

    i'm just a little tired of wilson topline 80 breaking so quickly at 15/tube when on sale

    Hi Gundamzaku, that's a reasonable price in SEA. If add shipping cost may lift the price.

    I use aero and black as they're probably the best. They're more on the expensive side for sure, but they can take at least half a game of smashes before giving in. I hate RSL, they can't even take a few of my power shots.

    Agreed with you, Optiblue. RSL's quality has come down fair bit lately, that's why I'm thinking of changing to Aero-black, but a bit costly, and not easy to get in Adelaide.

    I don't really like the RSL Tourney 1 either but the Tourney Classic are really good shuttles. I liked them more than the Yonex AS-50s our opponents were playing with.

    the final cost for me on the RSL Tourney #1 is $142.00USD for 10 tubes, and since my friend was buying them in bulk the price dropped a bit more than expected per tube. $14.2USD/tube. if these shuttles are of better quality than the wilson topline 60 or 80 then i'm good. $14 can't get you anything realistically consistent in the United States.

    i am willing to shell out $23usd/tube for the aeroplane black because i know they are of great quality, but if i can save a buck here and there, i'll do it.

    actually the cheapest i've seen aerosensa 30 go for is 23, is that a good price as well??

    Cool

    Not sure of that price. I'm still searching for more durable and reasonable price one. It's not so easy to have choices in Adelaide. May be I should start a wholesale business here.

    I have heard the durability of both shuttles has declined with the recent batches. Have you tried Chao Pai Reds?

    Question

    I have heard of Chao Pai but never use it before. May be should look for it and give it a go. So you reckon it's worth a try. How's the durability?

    They have had some good reviews recently and worth buying a tube. If they sold them in the UK I would try them. Check out the threads on cork and plastic based shuttles as well.
