Thread: Shuttlecock (Newbie)
04-21-2013, 07:10 PM #1
My friend & I play badminton in my backyard for about an hour daily, just because we find it fun. We don't really compete against each other our goal is just to keep it in air as long as possible (we don't even use a net XD, but I'll get one later).
So my question is, what's a cheap plastic shuttlecock brand I should be looking to buy?
The ones I currently have are from sportscraft (2011) and break every other day (the plastic thing rips).
I'm looking for a really durable, cheapish brand (low on money). Thanks for the help!

Wrong thread, but if you're just playing in the backyard anything will do you can just go to sportchek or even Canadian tire and buy whatever is cheapest they should all be fine. Though I would recommend actually playing in a gym with real shuttles to get the best experience of this game. Edit - hadn't occurred to me there are other places called newington, those stores might not exist where you are.

Can probably find them in wal mart then. If I recall I couldn't find any badminton stuff at dick's or at Olympia sports or other chains. But Walmart might have the type that come in those backyard kits don't know if they'll be better. Otherwise maybe just try to find some Carlton nylons.

Just get Mavis 300 or 2000 if you're getting Yonex. They'll last you a good long while.

If you care how they fly you will have to change them every now and then if you play a bit. But considering wind and stuff if you're playing outside the 6 you get in the tube should last you a good while.
