boy did this thread go off topic, lol...
anyways, here there are only 2 shuttlecocks available in shops, some weird ARROW brand which have birds that weigh a tonne, and the AS10 for guess what - AUD30!!! (another shop sells them at AUD40)
They suck and we try to keep it a max of 3 shuttles per game coz they're so darn expensive. Luckily I found a guy on the forum who sells Yang Yang 300Bs (IBF approved) for AUD20/doz...so I'm waiting for him to send me 3 doz to see how good they are...

Took a couple of pics of all the shuttlecocks which I still have before destroying 'em on the court. Here's a peak of what to expect should you want to try em out sometime...
Feathers are relatively brittle, and won't last very long, they are about 90% symmetrical so that's not too bad. The sticker inside the shuttlecock is one of the prettiest I've seen (not that that makes any difference)
One thing to note is that after a few hard hits some of the feathers fly right off while others are still in prefect condition. These are great birds to make mini shuttles coz you can salvage the good ones while discarding the rest!
Another thing to note is how weird the feathers are cut...mostly are pointed/rounded shuttles with symmetrical sides. On the AS-10, half of one side is snipped of..or probably just an indication that its made of duck feathers...or maybe that how duck feathers look like originally...not too sure about that.
It's 100% cork which I like! Cork won't deform either! ...of course, thats probably due to the fact that the feathers are all gone before it gets a chance to...

Sorry, AS10 is made of goose feather... Yes, it flies good and dies fast.
