    Default Question : Tai-Lai Feather birdies

    So right now i'm testing out feather birdies, so i just ordered in some tai-lai 201 feather birdies for 18$/douzen and wondering why the corks are so hard? is it supposed to be like that? also anyone know if these are goose or duck feathers? the flight on these is quite good when freshly used, but during 1/2 - 1 full game the shuttle starts to die: the flight is off, does some weird circle stuff, and cant really control. I'm using them for practicing / friendly matchs. I used to use victor champ #1 or rsl but they weren't in stock.

    $18 per tube is really expensive for 201. My 101 cost me $15 including shipping. But is seems that the durability is not good.

    I tried before, the feather is not durable and the cork is too hard. In case of 1 or 2 feather are gone, the shuttle is dead, not even good for practice.

    hey where did you buy that? I bought it from shuttlecombo.com but found out that they are fake ones. The label on the bottlom of the birdy was very easy to drop during the game, and the original label showed that a different brand!

    ye the birdie is ok, lasts about 1/2 a game and the birdie is done. On impact, compaired to the victor ones, i get a different feel but its almost the same.

    Ive never had the problem of the labal falling off. It just has a green sticker saying tailai-201.

    A few years ago, Tailai was very good for the $$$. Even 301 or 401, are good enough for club level of playing. Then, the entire shuttle industry seems going to the trend of raising price as well as lowering quality.

    Personally, I won't go for 201 or below. With a few $$$ more, Tailai 101 and gold seems at least maintain certain quality standard.

    Yes, Melee, you are right, the Tailai brand shuttlecocks on Shuttlecombo.com are fake ones, the logo and tube packages are different from originals, as I know, the Tailai shuttlecocks on badmintonalley.com are original ones, the quality is good and with quite special prices, have a try there!!

    I guess you can have a try there higher grade model TL-001 (Gold) or TL-101 (Green), these two Tai-Lai shuttlcocks are for professional games, commented highly by US badminton club, you can have a check the prices on badmintonalley.com.

    FYI, the official webiste of Tai-Lai shuttlecocks is: www.BadmintonChina.Net.
