    I believe it is harder to sight plastic shuttles, even the yellow ones, because the shape of the plastic has collapsed and comes to you like a thinner and smaller version of the original. The shuttle thus becomes smaller and sighting it, like looking at all small things, become difficult.

    Beside, part of the training is to see and react on fast moving small object.

    Almost all high shots are difficult to sight with plastics. That is why they come up with an option of yellow, as yellow is the easiest colour to see. But when you look at an incoming plastics shuttle, the cone diameter has shrunk, and no amount of colour tricks, whether yellow or yellow with flashing lights, will unwrap the shrunken plastic shuttle and restore it to its original size for you to see. Maybe they should make the plastics shuttle double its cone diameter, so that its collapsed state will at least look more like a real shuttle instead of any difficult-to-see projectile. In short, besides a total lack of control plastics are too small to see in play.

    Thanks for your opinion. If RCL was better i would have bought RCL since they are the same price.

    Try PROTECH shuttlecock guys, I have been using it for a quite a while now. Quality is excellent. They have pretty good practice range shuttlecocks.
    Very popular in Malaysia and Singapore.

    Obviously lar, the brand originated from Malaysia...
