Just my raw idea.
I'am thinking of a durable paper that been used as a seperator within the wafer fab disc.This paper cannot be easily torn.And the light hollow straw stick (tapered end) just imagine like vitagen straw or like a cotton bud stick as a structure to replace a feather.
The shuttle base remain the same using a cork.No need to sew,just need the 2 light plastic "O" ring with groove of diameter of the straw stick around the "O" ring to slot in the straw stick into the plastic "O" ring and glued.(high quality glue)
1st) The paper will be as crispy and as light as a feather when been hitted.
3rd)Less Quality control issue (constant size,while feather is uncertain condition).
4th)Not effected by the bird flu issue.
6th)No need to mositurize before game.

I register just to post a reply about this purpose ... I got the same idea recently and I had a dream : a shuttlecock in carbone fibre (same material as darts flight) wich had the same flight and same sound when I hit it. I tried to make a prototype but it's not easy. The most difficult is to respect the weight and the flight. I've also thinked about a shuttlecock made with half nylon and half feather : it will be more durable and will also sound better.
