    I have word from Aeroplane, that it changed their product in 2011 with partly synthetic cork, this to be able to sell at reasonable price. Their quality is still rather good, but it would be great if they would also sell full cork ones in my opinion.

    cheers

    it is not jut the cork that changed. the whole shuttle is now different. the feather are not as durable as before and the feeling is not as crisp.

    I just cut open a recently used Aeorplane Red and Aeroplane Black and both were still 100% cork. My friend gave them to me to check out the construction. Guess he still has the original versions.

    i can confirm that the new batches have indeed degrated, I have cut open 1 from about 10 tubes and it is as shown in previous picture. This is very sad as they where a go to bird for many.

You can feel that the corks of the premium group are really hard, not easy to be deformed with an exception from Aeroplane's, which is a little softer. The lower grade group (AS-30, Champions #1, Chaopai Red, Carlton GT1 and Dark Knight 6650) all come with a synthetic layer. Below are some pics:

    Please note, AS30 has 2 layer of REAL cork. No synthetic layer.

    just the other week i was able to disintegrate a Aeroplane Black from smashing.

    i have never disintegrated a shuttlecock before. this speaks a lot about the poor quality these days.

    Or it could mean you've improved in power ... plus using zm62 at 29 lbs, for sure any bird will explode.

    i've noticed some players using Chaopai(sp?) Red and it's quite durable!!! i didn't know what it was till i took time to read what it says behind the cork.

    Aeroplane Black, quality still ok, maybe the USA distrobutor let other factory OEM Aeroplane Black with cheap price, then the quality issue come.

    chaopai is soso, youhe S100 is better than chaipai.

    This statement is absurd. The factory has confirmed that there is only one factory of their own making Aeroplane EG1130. No distributor owns the brand, thus, has no authority to interfere with the factory, other than the right for distribution.

    Aeroplane has their own factory in China and makes only one product, badminton shuttlecocks, and EG1130 is their top of the line product from their factory to ensure its quality. This information can be easily verified by contacting Aeroplane.

    I have recently imported a new batch of Aeroplane Black shuttles from China. The quality is top notch. Birdie lasts on average 1.5 games (15 point system) with rigorous play. The model I have is EG1130 with the pointed tip. The shuttle flies really really well and it definitely feels like an yonex As40 or As50.

    Anyone can enlighten me on the difference between pointed tip and rounded tip shuttles? Thank you!
