    Default Mother-Of-All-Shuttles

    I recall two brands that couldn't be collapsed even with a road-roller.
    They were Penguin and Super Duck (this was quite a while ago).
    This was in India.

    To begin with, they were as heavy as small paperweights.
    Secondly, the feathers were stuck with some kind of ultra-powerful glue.
    Thirdly, the feathers seemed to have come from some god-almighty goose...they would neither split nor break.
    After a few well-hit rallies, the shuttles would flare up into a mighty resistant bird which would sap your energy faster than you could top up.

    In short, you could play for months with one of these missiles.

    However, you'd need to either restring frequently, use extra-thick strings or drastically lower your string tension.
    At the end of the day, what you saved on shuttles invariably went to buying new strings.

    I wonder if they're still being manufactured.
    If exported, they could quickly put the Yonexes and the PTs out of business.

    Default shuttlecocks

    Hi BennyC

    How much is Victor there?
    Do you have Aeroplane there?

    I sell Aeroplane here in the Philippines.
    The running rate now is :
    Aeroplane Green (G1130) is PHP620/tube.
    Aeroplane Red (SG1130) is PHP710/tube.

    How much is the exchange rate now?
    hahaha ... I'm not sure if it is cheaper or more expensive.

    I live in Vancouver,Canada. I am in the upper beginner to mid intermediate level. I am looking for a durable good quality feather birdie that you can buy arond here for 20 to 25 dollars or less for about a dozen or so. If any of you out there know which birdies that you can buy where I live that fit within this price range and such, it would be much appreciated.

    HangYu #1 is the best for the price, around $19/tube when purchased in larger batches

    Glad to know that you know about penguin .
    They still make and their owner is Basudeb Khan. I have some of his best shuttles and will put up pictures later . They are more like a outdoor shuttles compared to other brands . They have not seemed to catch up with current standard . Once India seniors used to played with these shuttles but due to lack of ponds and natural habitats duck ( not goose ) feathers are not up to mark and they have lost their shine .
