Yea, how are smashcity shuttle cocks
09-05-2007, 09:32 PM #72
poor durability due to thin feather
flight traject is normal
speed is normal
stability is bad
price is cheap enough (Rp. 35.000 ~ USD$4)
i don't know why this shuttlecock used by many tournament in Indonesia beside Yonex.
Anyone could recommend some cheap and good shuttlecock in indo??

There are a few, but it depends..
I've tried the Indocock Black and Brown shuttles..heard the Black is the top of the line.
I've also tried Garuda, MikasaStar, Java, Waikiki & Saxon, to name a few..all abt the same quality & running abt the same price.
Yes, i don't know why Indocock shuttles have been used in several tourneys in Indonesia. But if i were to compare, i'd say Indocock shuttles are pretty decent for the price. It flies OK, esp. here in the U.S. However, durability is not good
I've recently bought some shuttlecocks in Surabaya, and never heard of the brand, called Gajah Emas (GE). I believe they have 2 models: Perak (Silver) and Hitam (Black). Same price and roughly the same quality/playability also as the Indocock shuttles.
But the best one, IMO, that i've used is the Green-band Gadjah Mada shuttles. Not the Red-band one. I believe i purchase it for around $6+/tube. Pretty decent feather thickness, and flies fine (esp. here in the U.S.). I heard they manufacturing warehouse is in Tegal (near Surabaya). And I believe kwun also tried it before.

Sifu you have not tried green gajah mada....... you must be joking . you have to try man. It's a nice shuttles, it's packed 6 shuttles in one cone. The price here around Rp35,000 ($3.8).
BTW I recently realize that the quality is not the same as before, it's easy to broke. What I did before play, I normally put some sweat on the feather. This will long last the feather. It works.
If you think the price is little bit expensive, I recommend to use Young Young Champ special, it is also packed 6 shuttles in one cone. Don't try other young2, they are not consistent. The price is around Rp28-30,000.
Believe me you will love this shuttles, the feeling is almost the same with Gajah mada (green label)

Btw, just curious, which part of INA are you from, h4n5ip??..

I dunno that they are long cone (12 shuttles) in Green gajah mada.
As you can see from my nick info, I am in Batavia = Jakarta
In Jakarta Green gajahmada is very popular, BTW I think it can be considered one of the expensive shuttle among other.

once i ever seen someone use that gajah mada things, but at the shop i could find it, so if i have some money the go to saxon or rajawali, if i'm in rare then go for indocock or java.
Yesterday i play w/ red indocok again, take 2 pcs of shuttle, then both are bad performance. Looks like on 12 pcs there is no consistancy among all.
Some high speed, some slow, some defect.... huaahhh...
In all, maybe u'll see those are the cheap one, buat after try and try, you'll realize that it's not cheap due to poor performance.
next time i'll try to look for gajah mada green

For sure next time you should try Green Gajah Mada (6 shuttles).
In Jakarta every badminton store carry this shuttle.
This shuttle is very2 consistent, you will feel the same feeling as many shuttles as you use. Here the cheapest you can get for Rp 33,500 ($3.6), the highest Rp 37,000 ($4). Pls give ur comment after you try

man . . , i should've read this forum abt 2 weeks ago when i was still in surabaya. Anyways, i tried both Java and indocock (black) shuttle cocks and they're pretty decent for $4/tube. But hey, if you guys are used to play w/ higher ends shuttle cocks, don't bother to use these cheap birdies because the speed/consistency of the shuttlecocks are not even comparable. just my 50c. tho'.
