    Default Yonex AS5

    Hi guys,
    Can i have more info on yonex AS5 shuttles. I heard they are better than Yonex AS10. Is that true? Or is AS5 the lousiest shuttle in yonex range?

    i've seen AS-2's.
    i haven't tried them, but if the general idea applies, it should be worse than the AS-5's you mention.

    i did a bit of digging around, and the AS-XX shuttles are goose feathers(which we all know), while the AS-X series of shuttles are duck feathers.

    AS-5 shuttles are IBF approved just as much as AS-50's are.

    I guess the AS5 i bought were a problematic batch. One feather of the shuttle always break off after a few shots.

    Is there AS15 in the market? Or do u mean AS5? If you are refering to AS5, yes, it is made of duck feather.

    I have a AS-5 sitting on my desk from 20 year ago. I hit it once a year to make sure it is still alive. Also, it is a piece of my memory.

    But from my experience, the flight pattern seems to be very bad. Just after a few hits, the shuttle will like "shake" in the air.
