    Default Victor Gold Champion Feather Shuttlecocks

    Anyone used these? How do they compare to AS30's?

    i use them for singles and they last at least 1 game to 1.5 games without humidifying. maybe 2 if humidified.

    it's nowhere close to AS30s.

    I just played my first session with these.
    @gundamzaku when someone says 'nowhere close', they usually mean in a bad sense. But you mention that these shuttles last 1+ games. In my experience this is better than AS30. Please can you clarify which is better in you experience?

    In mine, the victor gold are better than as30.

    I found the feathers quite durable. Over the course of ~45 minutes of singles we had to change twice, both times due to shape/wobble issues rather than feather damage.

    In my experience and having used these shuttles since September, they are equal to AS40. And, I pay a lot less for these compared to AS40 saving in the region of 4 per tube!

    i'm sorry, i totally misread the model of shuttles, i've only used victor gold, not victor gold champion. please disregard my comment from previous post.
