    badminton is a simple game but expensive sport ..... my current group only uses Yonex AS40 or AS50, simply because of durability, it can be used at least for 1.5 set (1 set of 21-points)

    hm..I used to use Gadjahmada as well
    Im not a big fans with the green GadjahMada..but the red one still great.

    Now adays, I use Garuda The tube is black, so far I'm very staisfied..it's not too light and not too heavy (for me). But some of my badminton mate think that Garuda is too heavy..but they are used to play with shuttlecock like Java..

    ..ah, it's the red tube. I've used the red tube ones, but it has 12 pieces. Unfortunately, when used in the U.S., the speed was just slow.
    Actually i was referring to the green band that goes around the cork. Is the Gadjahmada international the one with the green band or different colored band??..

    I bought a few tubes from a seller 3 months back and he also claimed that his grandfather is the owner of the product. Ronald is the name. Are you guys related?

    Yes, the green band seems to last longer than the red but they are not durable shuttlecock as my group used up to 3 shuttlecocks per set. Considering that we do not have great smashers, feathers fall off too easily with each impact of the smash.

    As the shuttlecocks' feathers were pretty dry, thinking it could be the cause of the poor quality, I requested the seller to get me another fresh tube directly from Indonesia. The result was the same.

    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.

    hey ^^"

    I like you guys, so honest about our product =D well i thank you for buying our product and introduce it to your mate and i am sorry if our product is not as good as our past. The only thing i can offer is the new Garuda Hijau. It is producing now, so maybe a month later the old product will be sold out, and all change with this new one, much better than before bcoz its our new machine trial products. Give us a chance to make better product okai =)

    About Gajahmada, well i can not say more, it is like Garuda Budiono, we are all a family in any occasion but still in field they are our competitors. So I am glad they have a bad shuttlecock but i feel sad too bcoz they are my family - -"

    My grandpa's grandson is only 2, Alex and Danny, This Ronald is comin from Garuda Budiono maybe =)

    About dry shuttlecock, I heard that maybe its bcoz of the climate, my friend once said that in Indonesia the shuttlecock is more heavy bcoz the clammy climate ^^" well another day he try to insert that ball into refrigerator, it seem to be more longer lasting, I never try it to myself but that is a funny way i think ;p

    a big no boss ..... hehez.

    I just help my group to find out another alternative shuttlecock.
    Currently we are using either AS40/AS50 (Sunday group) or PT10/Masterpiece (Wed group), but today I play with Indo people, they used
    Garuda International (red-stripe) produced by Garuda Budiono Putra. Considering the price is less than SGD10/tube, it is not bad.
    (1 SGD = Rp 7500 now, while this Garuda International only Rp 66,000/tube or SGD 8.8/tube only).

    All shuttles are relative interms of durability and pricing. Same for racket or grips. Don't fall for the hype and waste money. In general for a good shuttle, an advance group can whip about 2-3 shuttles a set. This is the general guideline. If 1 shuttle per set, then I think the group is 'not' so advance. Just some tips.

    I agree with you to some extend,...but i guess levels of play can't be judge solely by numbers of birdies they smashed.... Coz I played with provincial player in Indonesia and it depends on their style of play. An attacking type player will waste more shuttles, while those with more touch and rally type of player usually spend less.

    In contrast,...a newbie might destroy a birdie much faster due to misplaced or misshit of a birdie....

    Anyway...thats just my humble opinion...

    other than the birds mentioned, ive played with DHS 311. although its brown feathered, the birds were very durable. the flight path itself is stable. i think that it's around the quality of victors red label

    Agreed with badwing. Am saying a typical hard advance players standard.

    I like it when you said some whips the feathers.

    I was like scratching my head when some people said it doesn't last. You sure bring up a good point.

    Just for a tips though, some are good when it's the first batch, then the quality goes yoyo for a while before it comes back to the quality you expected. Some of the tricks from suppliers that I or most encountered when playing. So, go for reasonably safe brand and pricing. They said, its bad season. of Flu season.

    Yes i agree with badwing too...
    when you play with streght attacking there is no durability here.
    in Jakarta i just see with my own eyes 1 point 1 shuttlecock huahahahah... cool... All type of shuttlecock they used and all type very easily broken.
    even a goose feather, maybe the feathers is not broken but the thread and glue is geting soft and you can't use it anymore hahaha...

    badwing i need your address ^^... pm me

    The shuttles ive used is:
    Wilson Champoint-belongs to my sister.
    South Sea 105-cheap but its not good for hard hitters as it is foam-based.
    KX Silver Ace 115-Best Ive ever used..
