Shuttles are overpriced, but I guess we just have to live with it. It's like Golf, the balls are expensive, but it doesn't stop the passionate people that love it to stop playing. Were just like that too, their expensive, but atleast we have a cheaper choice of using plastic birds.

bird flu! i think shuttlecocks prices will increase further =P

I have a feeling that the prices will just keep on rising as there will be less and less feathers.

Well if it's true what people are saying that eventually we will run out of feathers for shuttles, than I can only imagine that the price will go higher as the supply doesn't meet the demand

for my club I bargain some 400 tubes of yang yang at 13 euros,memebers pay them 10 euros only cos my club make benefit,in september yangyang increase up to 14,50 euros this is the price for the other club for this season
normal price are around 15-16 euros,
don't hope the price could go down one day ,because chinese must eat more
and more goose,or french goose liver factory must keep some feather to sell to china!also chinese girl must be paid more and more ,the shuttle must
have a certificated (the feather are well washed,I mean they are clean
after a bath......)corck from portugal are more and more expensive!!

Everyone in here seems to not like the price of shuttle. I have a friend that live in ShenZhen, so I can ask him to ship over shuttle that he can get hold of in ShenZhen. I haven't pay attention to the brand of shuttle and where it is made. I play at a club that provide Hi-Que and Victor shuttles, both of these are ok quality. I personally like Areoplan and SeaLion.
I am wondering how many people is interested in getting shuttle if I order a lot and ask my friend to ship over? To be fare with my friend, I am going to pay him a percentage of shuttle cost (not sure how much right now). I'll most likely getting Areoplan.
Any one know much much is 1doz of Areoplan cost in Toronto? Can you also post the price for different grade if you know?

make contribute to lower down shuttle price in these way:
1.Find a method to control Bird Flu
2."Invent" wonderful dishes made by goose meat, that would encourage aviculture of gooses

The reason shuttlecock prices keep on increasing
I am the distributor for RCL brand shuttlecock in Malaysia. The main reason shuttlecock prices keep on increasing is because of the feather. Of course there are other reasons too, you can check out the website below to understand more why the prices keep on increasing.

of course shuttles need to spoil. if plastic cups dont break like glass ones, why do people still want to buy glass cups?
if apple decides to make an ipod that would last literally forever, then lets say it sells for $1.
6 billion people buy this product. apple get $6billion.
if apple made it to last only a year, then they would be getting $6billion each year.

yes, agreed that the price keeps on increasing. the birds are on strike I think. Am still keeping the sealion tournament grade shuttles at same old price. Not sure how long this can be sustained. Buying 10 tubes would be a better option because of the discounts.
