Terrible mistake, wrong speed
I bought 400doz of nice quality Qiangli shuttlecocks from china to my badminton club. Price was very affortable because i managed to buy these shuttles straight from the manufacturer.
After recieving the shuttles i noticed that the shuttle speeds are wrong. I wanted speed 78 and i got 77 and 76!! Here in Finland we use mainly speed 78.
My club mates are angry and they want to get rid of these shuttles. Despite that the shuttle quality is very nice (for tournament use). It is too hard to play with slow shuttle and it seems impossible to adjust shuttle speed so much.
If you are interested buying these shuttles from us, we can offer you very low price (even under what we paid). Contact me if you are interested and let's discuss.
Any comments or ideas that we might do??

There is no money back quarantee and it is too expensive to send all shuttles back. And it is not possible because i made the mistake, I should have read the order confirmation more carefully :<

The price for these shuttles is: 7.5 USD if interested.

if you put it up on ebay for ~10 tubes per auction (for 40 auctions), you may actually be able to make some profit! though to get best prices, it's best if you only put up a few auction per week... if you don't mind making back the money on a slower term.

Are they ok for training? I could take 20 - 30 doz of 77's from you - not much but at least it is a start? I still owe you 13 e for those fly shuttles ... when do you next go to Esport? I'll be out of country 4.8 -> 16.8. You can reach me through janne.vartiainen00 at luukku.com

I can give free towel grip for every 10dozen. I really need to sell these shuttles soon.

How many tubes of speed 77 do you have left?
Do you accept PayPal?

Just went through almost 1 doz of them (in 2 x 2 hour sessions). Not bad shuttles, playable if every second or all feathers are bent inwards. Black Sosan lasts 1,5 x longer, but then again their price is way higher too . Real bargain with this price - especially for club use! I'd buy more but I don't have place where to store them .

I can find that out.. But my guess is about 20USD/25doz, 40USD/50dozSo about 0.8 USD per one dozen.

Shipping cost for 50 dozen to different countries:

Just received some tubes.
I'll see how they go down at one of my clubs tonight.
