"I'm looking to buy some fast cars... the red ones.
Where can I get the cheapest ones?"
At the very least, you need to flesh out your query with useful information.
That could be a make or a model or a couple of reasons that led to your query.
People here are willing to, and want to, help.
But they can't unless they know what help you need

i believe those are codes that use long time ago
the colour ring at the cock
green = slow
blue = average
red = high speed
nowadays, we use the term of 75, 76, 77, 78 etc....

i did not realise that.... i thought it was simply done in colours.
i would not know what number we need.
I would like the fastest and the cheapest...! Make/Model does not matter....!
The reason is that we have run out of the 'red' shuttlecocks and it's my turn to buy! (hence why i want the cheapest! )

"i thought it was simply done in colours."....
azn 123 is correct - i was under the misapprehension that colours determine the speed... So, can anyone advise?

The colours are, at best, a basic guide.
It might help to go through these threads:
Also, are you using feather shuttlecocks or synthetic shuttlecocks?
(Synthetic = nylon, not plastic)

Just select the highest number on the tube if you want the fastest. It can be 5,53 or 81 depending on which system is being used.

Swindon, England. We definitley dont have a pro badminton shop! else id be out there! We have sports shops like JJB and they do not sell the faster shuttles. Is there not a main website people use?

yes the main website here is www.centralsports.co.uk
u can get all shuttles here.. but i would seriously advise against using plastic shuttles.. theyre not very good compared to feathers.. if you must use plastic, i would reccomend the yonex mavis 350. They come closest to performing like good feathers but still.. far off

most people prefer 76, 77. but i have seen people using 79 once.

Speed 76 is too slow for England. A speed 78 looks to be a safe bet.
