    If your kakis are not too choosy, suggest:
    - sintec (blue tube)
    - proace (AT75, AT85)
    - yang yang tactic 300B speed 76
    - ashaway classic (dark blue tube)

    I know some of you will question my choices but the "kampung" groups I have played with, have no complaints with the above shuttles. Have also seen some competitve Malaysian groups in Singapore using cheap Fleet shuttles. Off topic, I always admire those players who put aside issues eg lighting, draft, shuttles, court surface etc and just focus on the gameplay and the opponents.

    oh ya, Sintec Blue is used by the Safra club players and Ashaway Blue Classic was the 'official' shuttle for last year's intercon competition...

    thanks for your recommendations Sealman.

    Shuttles is an issue that is a little hard to put aside as some shuttles are really too fast / too slow / extremely fragile and will definately affect your gameplay. Furthermore, prices are always increasing......


    I'll take note of Sintec Blue and Ashaway Classic. We tried using Yang Yang Tatic 300B yesterday and it wasn't really good as it flew very fast!!! But I rem using it a few years ago and had a good impression of it. Oh well....

    Hi jmmylee33,

    there are a few places that you can buy a Armortec 300 / 500.

    If you've gone through the thread, there're quite a few recommended places.

    Classic Sports @ Toa Payoh SAFRA. Tel : 625388581. Mr Soh
    Artic Sports @ Sembawang Shopping Centre. Tel : 67536486.
    NewLink @ Queensway Shopping Centre, 2nd floor.
    Ranking @ Bras Basah Complex, 3rd floor.

    There're many shops in Queensway SC (Gala Sports, Chau Beng etc) and Bras Basah (Zenith Sports, 10&10, Music Book Room) that you can check out too.

    Just use the benchmark of S$160 plus minus and you should be fine.

    hi modius,

    I was told that AS-4, AS-5 (single digit series) are duck feather, while AS-40, AS-50 are goose feather.

    My group has tried several of the brands of shuttles you mentioned:

    Sealion -- more durable than the rest, but the organizer of the group did not like it, so the guy in charge of buying the shuttles stopped buying them.

    RSL Tourney 1 -- did not last as long as the Protech Masterpiece.

    Protech PT-10 -- group is willing to pay more for the Masterpiece. I think it is decent.

    Protech Masterpiece & Tournament -- current choice.

    Yang Yang -- thought it was decent, but group decided to switch to Protech.

    Victor -- personal dislike, its shuttles are not as durable. I won't recommend it at all.

    Sintec -- another group I know plays with the 818 model, no complaints.

    I have also played with groups using Ashaway Classic and Carlton on one occassion each. Personally I can't tell the difference between most of them, except Victor which goes bad much faster such that i cannot forget it...

    tkteo,

    many thanks for taking your time to write this.


    yes I've read that AS-4 / AS-5 shuttles are duck feathers rather than goose feathers (AS-40 / AS-50). But I've tried AS-5 before and it was pretty durable and good actually.

    I've never used Sealion before, but I've tried Aeroplane G1130 previously and it was also pretty ok imo.

    Protech MasterPiece. Is it available in Singapore? So far I've seen many shops selling Protech PT-10 and Tournament only.

    Heard that Ashaway shuttles standard has dropped alot..... wonder how true is that. I've also used Carlton AG10 before and they were quite good. However can't seem to find them anymore.


    Anyone used CN Aplha (Gold) before? I also had very good impressions of it using it 3 years ago. That time, the group I was playing with used it for a period of time as the flight/durability/price was good.

    Well, i used before. For S$26 per tube i rather play Sintec Blue [special edition]. The cost is same, yet the performance of CN Alpha is not better than Sintec special edition. Durability, performance, flight consistent, sintec is better. Well i bought the sintec special edition from the HQ side, the boss sell me S$15 per tube to let me try out. Man, i am satified with the performance.

    P.S i am not sintec agent or watever. Just like their shuttlecock product. thats all! (and some rackets)

    Time for a bit of nostalgia. I remember the quality of Yonex shuttles used to be even better than current productions, but that was, like, around 15 years ago. Back then the only "quality" brands I remember using were Yonex and Victor, but even then Victor shuttles had the annnoying habit of having feathers snap off. (I also remember the All-England and FC brands.)

    I have found Protech Masterpiece, Championship, and Tournament in JB, at the "Jiwa" shop people go to for RSL stuff.

    Carlton's current lineup of shuttles are AG 7.7, 8.8, 9.9, and a cheaper range called Smash, Power, and something else. All available at Mustafa basement 2. I bought the Smash (I think) at $15.60 for coaching and at least it's well good enough for that.

    I suspect I am far from being the only one who finds shuttle quality to have deteriorated, so I am averse to paying in the mid to high S$20s for shuttles. Can't say that there is any significant improvement to warrant the extra expenditure. Then again I suppose it could be because I can't afford to be too choosy about the brand, except those with feathers that snap off more easily ;:

    Shuttle price rising,quality decreasing.
    Aeroplane shuttle(sg1130) quite last for me. Although the speed decrease,at least still can fly and flight path still remain constant.
    Ashaway(black tube) is quite good too.

    AT700 - $200
    AT500 - $160/$170(forgotten)
    MP99 - $180
    NS9k - $260
    NS7700 - $180
    NS8k - $220/$230
    All quoted from artic sport.With bag,string and grip
    Orginal quoted price,haven bargain yet.

    S$180 for the recently released NanoSpeed 7700? Darn, I was quoted way higher elsewhere... Would you please confirm this?
