    Thumbs up Durable shuttlecocks

    Hi afham07,
    If u want good shuttles, then the price will be slightly higher. Protech Championship is quite good at RM$41/- per tube. Or likewise, u may consider Protech Tournament(green) at RM$39/- per tube. Venue: Pertama Complex,KL.
    Adios.

    Try Tactic Blue, Green or Red.

    I just started using them and definitely A+++ on durability.

    I'm going to try Tactic Iron next.

    If you & your friends always take care of the feathers after scoring, Yonex AS50 will be perfect.

    If not, don't use AS50.
    You will break it as fast as other shuttles.

    A very good shuttle but a bit pricey, relatively speaking.

    I think Victor sucks since it became made in China.
    I always use Victor 5.5 years ago, and for 1.5 years I was satisfied with its quality. Then suddenly, its quality droped dramatically after it became made in China. I thought it was temporally and kept using it for 1 year. But I was wrong, Victor's quality was gone and never came back. Recently, after its price going up, its quality became even worse.

    I am using Yonex AS50 now.
    Below is my experience using both for 2 years.
    For practice
    AS50: $450 NTD @7-9 days with good care
    @3 days without good care.

    Victor $400 NTD @1.5 Days with or without good care

    For game
    AS50 @1.5-2 double with good care
    @1 double without good care
    Victor @<0.7 double

    And speaking of performance and consistency
    AS50 is overwhelming

    I don't think it's fair to say Victor "sucks".

    It may not be as good as before but compared to its peers, the Victor Champion No. 3 at $10/tube is good.

    The Victor Blue is good at $12/tube

    The Victor Champion No. 1 is just plain good.

    Again, this is relative, compared to its peers, based on my experience.

    For the price of $10, Victor Champion #3 is not a bad shuttle, especially, if the game is not too intensive with tons of bullet shooting smash or slices. However, one thing I noticed is, the quality lacks consistency sometimes. In the 2 boxes I got, most of the tubes are good. However, there do have several tubes, certain shuttles seems "not last long" even in not too intensive doubles.

    Hmmmm, good to know. I will give them some feedback about the consistency, thanks.

    But I will say, now, in this price range, all the shuttles are basically similar in durability or less. If you want a durable shuttle, it's gonna be $16/tube or more. I guess blame the Asian Bird Flu on that.
