uh so where is the list of reviews?
07-15-2009, 02:21 PM #139
there should be a temporary posting somewhere. however, shuttle quality has gone down for a while, so the review is not as accurate anymore. better to search for most recent reviews.

How to double the life of your shuttlecock....You don't need expensive YONEX brand.
If you have BALLY fitness member or know anyone that are members. Have them bring the shuttlecocks to the steam room, take it out and place it on top of the wooden steam where the hot moist air come out. Leave it there at least for 5 minutes. Then put it back in the tube. You can take it to play within 30 minutes of steaming or better yet, play it within 24-48 hrs. I know some of you thinking about home steaming, but from my experience, Bally Fitness STeam room works the best. I used DNA shuttlecocks, and now I can play 1 full game with heavy smashed w/out a feather fly off the birdy....I can see people keep on checking the birdy to see what brand am I using OVER & OVER ......i know what they thinking....."damn, this bird don't die".....

DINK - where is the review? I thought you have the table of the shuttles that you tested.. Thank you :-)
08-26-2009, 12:40 AM #149
unfortunately, the table is nearly useless at this point, due to declining shuttle quality over the last few years, so most of his reviews have become obsolete. if you're really interested, I have the review saved, so i can post it on photobucket and send you a link, though it really wont do you a whole lot of good unfortunately.

Best Value Shuttle for Casual Play
It's a real shame that the review is now outdated - amazing how fast things change! Thanks for all your hard work though Dink.
I have a question - What is the best shuttle I can get for $15 or less - just for playing with friends etc?
