Best place to buy Aeroplane in Hong Kong
I will be going to Hong Kong in a few weeks. Please advise where in Kowloon or Hong Kong for best prices on Aeroplane Black Label feather shuttlecocks. I know there are two kinds of Aeroplane shuttlecocks and Black Lable is the best grade, is it true?
Thanks for the tips.

Luxis has the black label. Most HK retailers are selling the Green label only.

Last question, about Art of Racket, http://www.artofracket.com/en/index.htm , is it a legitimate store? It has low prices for Aeroplane. Do you know anything about it? Is it an online store only and does it have a store front in Hong Kong?
Thanks for the help.

check this website. http://www.shuttlecockchina.com/fly-cpjs-1.htm
We use Black Label speed 78 with rounded tip in the summer. Way too fast, and no way of bending the tip.
IMO, for Canadian usage, buy speed 77 with pointed tip. Overall, very good shuttles. Every shuttle is durable and flight consistent. On average, each shuttle last approx 1.5 game of MD. Every player in the group provided great feedback on this grade.
Stay away form Green label, not consistent and feather breaks easily.
Red label is OK, comparable to Victor Tourney, Sealion B & W, Black Knight Precision 6600, etc.

Black Label speed 77Originally Posted by roby2003
Also, please recommend a (1) web-based online store or (2) H.K. based store that sells Aeroplane Black Label with speed 77 with pointed tip. I want to buy from a store (online or store front) that is recommended by experienced players like you.

For HK stores, you may want to enlist assistance from HK residents.
I doubt the manufacturer will see to you directly. No harm checking with them.

What is the difference?Originally Posted by forrestyung
Can I assume Aeroplane EG1130 i sthe top grade while SG1130 is the middle and G1130 is the lowest?
Also, is the Black Label = EG1130 or SG1130?
Last, what is the differience in play between a pointed or rounded tip?

G1130 is tournament grade one GREEN stripe, super grade is below the top grade. i think the EG1130 has Black stripes and very expensive (S$28) here, i think the black label should be the highest one if it has black stripe. If the black ones cost around (S$22-S23) most likely not the top end. Why not get Victor green? Aeroplane in beijing cost $17 for the green ones, quite cheap since here around S$22. I never play with round one, i guess pointed is better

It is on the second floor of a small building, and is a one room store. It is right outside of the big sewer and a Model hobby shop should be just under it. On Castle Peak Road, Yuen Long, a more accurate address can be found on the site itself.

Black = EG
Red = SG
Green = G11xx
Blue = G21xx (training)
In my experience with the Black's rounded tip vs. other brands pointed tips, I don't find any difference.
In fact, the Reds & Greens (both rounded tips) that I have used, I cannot tell the difference.

Buy EG1130 on-line.
I just put in a order for 6 tubes of the EG1130 Black Label from www.shuttles.com. It worked out to $22 Canadian per tube including shipping. I bought some of the Green Labels last winter and they were just OK. I thought I would try the better grade this time.
Hope that helps.
