    Default Carlton GT1 + 2 + 3 + 4

    Hello,

    Recently checked out centralsports and found Carlton's GT1 - 4 shuttles (which are not due in until July)

    Was wondering if anybody has been able to get hold of some and try them out? They look really expensive (packaging) and I seem interested to see how they fare against the other top feathers.

    Whats strange is that for the GT1, which claim to be better, they charge 12.25, but for the step down, GT2, they charge more at 13.50.

    I noticed the inconsistency in the pricing too. I was wondering if it was some sort of promo offer from Carlton. I'll be picking some up as soon as they become available, I think they're worth a look.

    I haven't tried any, but at that price I'll certainly give those GT1 a go.
    That's cheaper than their Yonex AS-30.

    Yeah true. And the way they advertise it, it sure seems as if they are much better than the AS-30, probabaly gunning after the AS-50 range.

    Prices have been updated online (looks like GT2 was a mistake)
    GT1 12.25
    GT2 11.25
    GT3 10.25
    GT4 9.25

    Hm, Carlton seems to be paper-launching his products. I wonder if the salesmen have been visiting the graphic cards ind.

    According to this place, its due in October. If the birdies are crap, its added bonus to disappointment

    i am a sposnored carlton player. i have tried them many times. The shuttles are exactly the same as the yonex range, the GT1 comparing to the As40's and 50's. The GT2 are similar to the as30's

    The same, meaning even the durability is the same? Last shipment of AG-10 was pure crap, feather was thin and twisted I suggest Carlton geese eat more Calcium
