    Reality is cruel, not easy to find another group with suitable schedule since I have a toddler now. I have been using Yonex BR80 and ti-68, I will check out ZM65. Thanks man!

    OMG. This is the post I have been looking for. I haven't really read all or even most of the posts. But I just wanna say almost everyone in my club loves playing plastic and hates feather. I could never control plastic and they are hard to be hit to the back. I'm kinda thin. But when I'm playing with feather I could clear it way to the back even with backhand. It frustrates me even more because we are constantly changing different type of plastic and they vary a lot so I have to keep on adapt to new ones and I can't help but think it's stopping me from improving.

    You could try changing to Mavis 2000. Although still plastic, but better touch and less harsh compared Mavis 300/350.

    Thanks I will recommend it to my club when I get the chance. We're running low on funding now cause our Student Govt. Board won't give us anything.

    On a brighter side. One of the plastic kind that I played today was really fun. It flies like crazy but if it's low enough when it's coming to me and my opponent is too back at the rear court, I could just slightly "tap" my racquet and let it drop. My opponent won't suspect a thing cause the drop is kinda sharp. It's one of the white ones. That was the only thing I found out about it that I like.

    Thanks visor, I did try out mavis 2000 and they are way better. They don't fly like a bullet, feel much more like feather and the rallies are longer. I also like that the birdie spins so much more than the mavis300. Highly recommend it if feather is still not the option, but definitely go for feather if play singles.

    Mavis 2000 is awesome as far as plastic goes. Unfortunately not durable but it's cheap enough that it doesn't matter.

    yeah they are only $2.00 more(a tube) than mavis300, durability maybe 30% less, but game plays is much more fun by 100%.

    Used M2000 for a while as a replacement to feathers. Unfortunately they tend to 'warp' too quickly which makes them go fast. When new they r excellent.

    Not at all,dude.For recreational uses,plastic birds will do the chores.For more enjoyment and flying patterns and consistency,you definitely go with feathers.Sounds like you're enjoying the games,that's good to hear.Try Carlton F1 Ti Shuttlecocks,they're awesome too.Really.
