Maybe you should try and ask the people that play because in different condition the shuttlecock's speed gets affected by the humidity of air whereas i live in melbourne where its REALLY dry shuttlecocks are like glass made
So you should buy shuttlecocks that are suitable at where you play

The more distant you are from China, where most feather shuttles come from, the more likely you will use shuttles that are relatively old.

Shuttles come in many grades, from very cheap to very expensive. You cannot compare a $20/doz shuttle with one that sells for $70/doz.
Sometimes, even the best grades play like cheap shuttles, especially when demand exceeds supply and manufacturers sell "uncured" (shuttles that have not been allowed to set for at least 2 weeks) shuttles. Of late there have been shipments to many countries of "uncured" shuttles, without the importer being aware of the problem until they find their way to the eventual player, who will then wonder why it doesn't play as well as before.

"uncured" (shuttles that have not been allowed to set for at least 2 weeks)
You mean the shuttle need to be "cured" before factory release out the shuttle? What actually "cured" mean? Thanks.

If you are in Malaysia around the KL or Seremban area you can contact a Mr Quek at 012-6802280 to try out the various grades of feather shuttles he has. You can get grades from inexpensive goose or duck feathers shuttles to very expensive tournament grade A+ goose feather shuttles, the latter being individually qc tested.

Now in Penang, you can buy shuttlecock even in morning wetmarket. E.g Jelutong market, Datuk Keramat market, Jalan Perak market, etc.
For regular shop, there exist more than 10 shop.
Introduce 2 of it, since I got they namecard:
1) Georgetown area: Teong sports centre
21, Kek Chuan Road, 10400 Penang
2) Bayan Baru area: Add-one Sports
60, Jalan Mayang Pasir, Bayan Baru,
[opposite Sunshine Square Shoping center]
I'm now using Tronex Gold/Yellow, bought it from wetmarket. Since price was reasonable and it was durable. It was new in Penang, however quality was good and also approved by WBF.
FYI, shuttlecock hawker in Penang move around. I did get the detail as below:
Jelutong Market: Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday
Datuk Keramat Market: Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday
Jalan Perak Market: Sunday only.
Hope this helpful.
