    All i know is goose feather provides better warmth than duck feathers in winter jackets... hehehehehe... so probably goose feather are finer and more closely knit?!

    Default Not 100% sure , but have a look on following 3 pictures

    The Aeroplane Black and AS50 use goose feather. The third one use duck feahter.
    There is "bone" in the middle of each feather. what's the difference between the 3 "bones"

    It is a simple way to distinguish duck feather and goose feather, but not 100% accurate

    And what makes the practical difference? Is it durability? Flight? Speed? Weight?

    The goose feather has stronger "bone" than duck's.
    That's why the duck feather shuttles are more easier to break.

    hmm, this is odd. I notice the aeroplane black in your picture has rounded feathers. The one I buy, have normal tapered feathers, similar to normal shuttles.

    I've heard people mention the round feathers on aeroplane blacks before but i've never understood what they meant.

    Yep, aeroplane produces both types. Both are "EG" black label series. I have tried both and cannot tell the difference between them. Both are excellent flight and durability. The current batches are a notch down in durability but still exhibits great consistency in flight.

    How to differentiate between goose feather bone with duck feather? It is because goose feather bone center got curve in or otherwise?

    Duck-feather shuttles tend to be a little bit yellow'ish compared to goose feather shuttles.

    Thumbs up

    The Aeroplane Black and AS50 use goose feather. The third one use duck feahter.
    AS50 -> Duck.

    I believe the flight pattern is different and goose tends to weight more. This is case based anyway.

    WOW...
    The person gave you that info either lying to you or do not know what he/she is talking about. If you really have a tube of AS50 made with duck feather, you got ripped off. Sorry bud...
