    Where did you order/buy your AS40's?

    Default rsl official?

    G'day!

    Has anyone tested RSL officials? If so, what would you reckon the overall would be? (Referring do Dink's 'overall')

    i don't buy them personally, the captain of my club does. i think he gets them in bulk from centralsports or something, he normally orders 50 tubes per go so he gets a pretty good deal. however, that was the last batch and they are now upping the price by 10% after these 50 tubes are used up.

    sir dinkalot, if u think yangyang 300b (old or new?) is excellent+, u shud try a brand named "sealion". i think tis brand is only available in south n east asia n heard tat tis brand is used by chinese players for training. i saw three grade for tis brand so far, red(low), "black n white"(medium) n gold(excellent). to me, black n white is certainly better than yangyang 300b(new), not to mention sealion gold. tat's y i buy 1 more tube before the price rise. but do be careful when buying bcoz there's more n more fake sealion. so, everyone pls 'destroy' ur shuttlecock tubes instead of throwing it away bcoz it might be used to cheat people.

    other than sealion, protech is quite good too, especially masterpiece

    Mmmm Aeroplane black.. I can't find tubes of that shuttle in NewZealand, but I sometimes find used ones in the trash can.. even if they have wasted up feathers, they still fly extremely well. My favourite shuttle for now..

    Has anyone tried the Chao-pai yellow? How good is that? Especially information in a New Zealand context would be best!

    Chao Pai Yellow is a low grade duck, training/practice shuttle.

    Default D&A badminton shuttlecocks

    I just received 6 sample D&A badminton shuttlecocks, one for each grade. They have good price from $10 - $17 per tube (lowest grade to highest grade) and have good flight and durability even for the $10 bird.

    Does any one know this brand? Where is it made?

    I noticed that the review of Hi-Qua Purple says its quality has declined possibly due to the bird flu...Dink, has this still continued to this day?

    Default Have some someone tried LE Champion?

    Have some someone tried LE Champion? Someone recommended it, but not sure which one could be comparable with it.

    Also anyone know where to buy it?
    Thanks!

    I tried to test the most recent build date to give you the most current results.

    Disclaimer: of all the reviews I've done, the shuttle review was the hardest. There are many variables that can affect the performance of the shuttle:

    Temperature
    Humidity
    Age of the Shuttle
    Exposure to the Elements
    Feather Consistency from the Factory
    Bad Batch, Good Batch
    Different Grades for Different Countries

    If your findings do not agree with mine, don't worry. Again, there's such a wide disparity among all the shuttles.
    I would not be surprised if there are differences in results, as I have found on quite a few occasions.

    So, you should use this review as a guide or for comparison purposes only. And like everything else on BC, take it with a grain of salt.
