    i'm surprised most people here plays with feather. feather for me last only about 10 smashes and it's gone bad. i play with a combined both smash and placement play. plastic to me last longer, are lighter, and make better sounds. one plastic will last about 20 feather i'm guessing. save money!

    Feathered shuttlecocks
    For all and any kind of competitive play, where the aim is to kill off your opponent. With it's superior flight-path and solid visibility compared to plastic shuttlecocks,(where it gets difficult most of the time to spot the shuttle when it travels at high-speed) even for training this is what you should be using, if your goal is to be a competitive player.
    My whole league plays with plastic. We are pretty competitive.

    Feathers are just expensive. Our school is recently built so we are a little short on cash probably.

    I use plastics for recreational play and practice. Feathers die too fast.

    I got my DHS 402 yesterday and tried it last night...
    Not so bad I thought it will be. May be too fast but it can be corrected
    And I payed only about $13 including shipping. Can I get better shuttles for this price?

    You can get RSL classics for $14US. I found DHS 402 at training shuttlecock level so they are pretty poor. You can get the RSL classics which are one of the best shuttlecocks on the market for a dollar more.

    I always play with feathers. I would take a used feather over a plastic any day.

    You have to email the owner so he can give you a quote on shipping. The email is on the homepage.
