Thread: What Shuttles Have You Used
02-09-2008, 02:47 PM #120
The personal preference its important, but I was looking for a comparison standard independently from the personal preferences. I will test the Yang Yang 300B in 4 days. At that time I will verify its characteristics.

OH THAT LINK... hahaha... i remember reading that long time ago now. my list is slightly different from him. in terms of 300b, i do not think itz on par with as-50 because of the durability and the shuttle feel. i feel that the as-50 cork is harder and also the overall shuttle is more durable. what i find good about yang yang 300b was that 300b was considerably cheaper and for the price, it was a good shuttle. the flight path is consistent (unless feather falls off like most/all shuttles) and when i used it, i can go from one shuttle to the next in the tube and there'd be no inconsistency from one shuttle to the next unlike some other brand of shuttles. also, most of the rating i created was for price to shuttle quality/durability ratio (me poor) i rated RSL tourney #1 the best only because i can get it for $15 flat. i used to rate hi-qua chester pretty high too cuz i could get it for $17. now itz just way too expensive. as-40 is about $23-24 after tax. to me as-40 (i can only get at one speed) flies fast. they are durable but comparing $15 to $24, i'd rather go with RSL cuz it almost last as long as the as-40. if u want quality, go with as-50. i have no doubt they are one of the best shuttles in terms of quality and durability u can find here in US (think japan came out with a higher grade of Yonex shuttle than the AS-50, just unaffordable).

We are looking for a shuttlecock like AS-40, with the same speed, and flight stability, but more durable and cheaper. We hope that Yang Yang have this characteristics.
Yonex have a higher grade then AS-50. Its the Yonex Tournment.

In my view, this type is very stable/consistent, but very easy to broke normally I need 6pcs for 1x30 game. Before I played with this shuttle but now I played with Kartika. The speed is the same with GM green. Durability is far away better. 1x30 using 3-4pcs.

Thanks for the fast response h4n5ip!
really!? i even heard someone say GM greenband is comparable
to chaopai red.
Does Kartika have diff variants? red, green, black,etc? which one do you use and how much is it usually for a tube? thanks!

Never tried chaopai red before.
Nope, kartika has only one variant so far as I known. You won't find it in the market. I buy straight from the maker.
The price for GM green is $3.8 (6 pcs)
The price for Kartika is $6 (12 pcs)
My feeling, kartika is quite similar to Protech I forget the variant. but I remember the price for the protech $18.
Very worth it to try. If you want to try you could ask your father to take half dozen Gm and Half dozen kartika. I can organize for you, depending where your father stay.

My Grandfather is the owner of Garuda Shuttlecock Industry, the company is divided by 2 now, Garuda Budiono Putra, and Garuda Torasakti Indotama. My father is on Garuda Torasakti Indotama.
The products itself divided by many variation, if you're a pro, playing with Garuda Crystal, sure it will be like playing with a crap. Try Garuda International if you are looking for our higest quality product. But I am guarantee only on Torasakti Indotama's product only, bcoz Budiono Putra is not belong to our family again. It has different owner.

Last time i use Garuda is not good experience, i try both Tora and Budiono and yes International also. Sorry but i feel your quality is not as good as Garuda i know 18 years ago, still have a good fly but feather loosing durability too fast and sometimes broken when smashing.
Now using Cobra Gold for acceptable performance with reasonable price and if my friend want to use somethig for more serious game we use RSL no 1 Tourney but its so pricey.
I keep wondering what happen to the brand that very famous in my teenage time....Gajahmada and Garuda
Improve your quality again bro i really missing the old times, i wish all best for you and your company

Well, thanx for the critic i will pass this information to the owners.
Sure our quality is not as good as 18 years ago maybe imo because even the materials' the same, our workers is not the same fyi our products are still using manual way. Budiono is the one who win the old factory but he is already pass away, his children.. i don't know ^^". Our factory is new, the only one left from this shuttlecock production is just my father, he is the one who can make this products like grandpa.
Lately, we're trying to use some new modern machine for production, hope this way can make a better products than before =)
Well gajahmada is our family too. I think they still have some great products like the old times, are they? O.o

nope, Gajahmada easily broken too and pricey Rp 41000 (in my court ) for half dozen is too expensive with durability like that.
03-05-2009, 04:13 PM #131
Another question, is it true there are several types of Gadjah Mada shuttlecock model? I heard the "best" ones are sold 6 pieces in a tube, instead of 12 pieces in a tube?? And the color is green.

It would be an honor if someone would let me try for 1 game a feather birdie
Where I live, most retail sport stores sell only plastic and come at $15/tube and no feather

I brought it to vietnam to show that indonesia made such excelent shuttle.
But infact i was embarrased, the shuttle crumbled after few strokes, it need 3-4 shuttle for 1 set. then all my club mate bit reluctant when I took my GM shuttle as every player has to contribute.
Now I return to Haiyen, with half price and much better quality
03-10-2009, 08:08 AM #135
Once upon a time Gajahmada was the best shuttlecock in Indonesia
I have same experience like you, even the red tube is not as good as i remember Hopefully bro applemoment pass our message to the owner
