It's funny that the photo edited the signage to RM6X.XX per tube but neglected to change the upside down sticker on the tube that says RM 60.00.

RSL Gold, RM48, not durable, fly ok. But only last for 1/2 game. duckYY AS10 to AS30, duck.Sea Lion, RM55, durable, can last for 1.5 to 2 games. Goose.Protect World Class, RM58, durable, easily last 2 to 3 games. Goose.If we do some math, Protect can really save more.

How long can you let a tube lie unused? I'm planning on stocking RSL classics but I need to buy in bulk for a decent price and to mitigate shipping costs.

For my experience, DUCK feather shuttles are not as DURABLE at the stem area, so when you smash, a high % of broken stems, hence unplayable .... too much spin and wobble ...
For GOOSE feathers, stem don't break that easy, most likely the feathers will FRAY but still playable if you straighten them out ... last about 2X longer than duck ... so do your maths ...

In general sense, yes, duck feather is not as good as goose feather. However, there are high-end duck feather shuttles that are lasting longer than some of the low- or even mid-end goose feather shuttles. You know that there are many kinds of ducks as well.
Since I have read some comment that AeroClub 05 (duck feather) is almost as good as AS-20 (some even say better than AS-20), I am hoping that AeroClub 07 might be even better.
PS: in another thread, some one was saying that AC 07 is between AS 30 and 40. I am not so sure about that, hence the question about it.

Let me clariy some misunderstanding about Yonex shuttles:
For non-Japan market: Only Aerosensa 30, 40 and 50 are GOOSE , all Aeroclubs, Aerosensa 2,3,10 and 20 are DUCK feathers ... source: Yonex website.
The Japanese market got some additional ones like F series (supposedly Aerosensa equivalent) which I have never tried ...
I got nothing against DUCKS (I love to eat them ) but their feathers make LOUSY shuttles compared to GOOSE ... facts of life ....

Yes, sealion is goose feather. I like.

I do like goose feather ones too, only if they are good and worth the price!
About Yonex shuttle line, however, official info and what's told around the market are different:
- I believe in all Yonex official web sites, it's clearly saying that AS-10 and AS-20 and higher are goose feathers. I have two of them here:, http://yonex.com/sports/badminton/pr...ks/aerosensa-/, and http://www.yonex.co.uk/Badminton/Product.aspx?ProdID=98
- HOWEVER, some suppliers (non-Japanese) are saying that AS-10 and 20 are duck feather ones, and some are saying that they are both goose.
- yes, different market in the world has its special ones, such as AS-9 in China is made from goose feather, while their AS-02, 03 and 05 are all duck.
Anyway, reading more about the type of feathers, some of the low grade goose feather ones are much worse than mid-grade duck ones.
Looks like we are deviating from the main topic of this thread. there is another thread about this, and I will post it there too.

BTW, thanks for highlighting my errors regarding Aerosensa 10 and 20 being DUCK ... they are so bad, I swear they played like DUCKS Seriosuly, if you can afford it, AS30 and AS40 should be great and they are the equivalent of other brands top-end. The thing I like about AS30 and AS40 (of course, AS50) compared to other brands top-end is the Quality Control and CONSISTENCY ...
I remember once a few months back that my regular supplier said that there are no As40 as YY doesn't have enough feathers of that grade, so they slowed production, lack of stock, but plenty of AS30 and AS50 - I doubt others will do like that !! GREAT QC !!

Now I know why people are thinking AS-10 and even AS-20 are duck feather ones, since they are so bad.
Getting a good performance / price ratio shuttle is getting harder now-a-days, especially during dry winter time here.
have fun playing!
