    no stickers, anyway finally tried them out

    Aeroplane black shuttles are indeed excellent shuttles, comparable to AS50. What i did notice is AS50 tends to snap right up the top, while aeroplane black would snap a little lower down. But both shuttles have similar durability and flight stability. The other shuttle i tested was RSL classic, this shuttle's flight stability is similar to AS50 and Aeroplane black however as soon as the feathers gets damaged the flight stability is gone.

    Also the 3 were the same speed class but the RSL shuttle was noticably lighter, which is probably why its less stable when damaged. I would say RSL classic is good enough for ppl who don't hit exceptionally hard and its 25% cheaper than aeroplane black...the shuttle's tube cost for me were $15 for RSL classic, $20 for Aeroplane Black, and $25 for Yonex AS50 (this is now $30 if i get any more). Excluding the shipping I'd most likely be sticking with aeroplane black for now

    good choice, i agree that aeroplane black is the one we need to stick with, though i have no other choices for one year.

    If the USD keeps falling it'll be even cheaper, right now it'll be $18 for aeroplane black, and $26 for AS50...but i already bought mine -___- at a lower exchange rate. Shipping will be around $25 AUD to ship 20ish tubes in a box, i don't know the exact price, you could use a bigger box which will prolly make it cheaper.

    Btw, i was using my last tube of AS50 from an earlier batch which would be around 8 months old now, they seem to feel slightly more sluggish, i don't know how to really describe it. So i would suggest not keeping shuttles too long, i think the drying up and hydration isn't quite the same as a fresh batch...

    Did you receive it yet? Did they get repackaged?
    We are thinking of doing the same thing in USA too. How did they ship? I don't need go to port to pick them up, right? Is custom cause problem? We don't have a company to handle tax.

    Please share the experience with us!

    Thanks!

    If it's anything like the UK, you'll have to pay some sort of import duty (which may cost quite a lot depending on how much the 500 dozen shuttles cost). I doubt customs will cause "a problem" as such - the package, although a large one will only be shuttles, not drugs or anything like that lol. I recommend you enquire to the relevant customers office (I'm not exactly sure how it works where you are), explain what you're planning on doing and ask whether there would be any issues and how much the import duty would cost.

    Oh and this thread is pretty old, please don't bump threads this old next time.
