    I recommend wooden shuttlecocks with nails on the tip.

    Plastics for practice. They normally retain their shape which is good for practice and can withstand some good smashes and a long period of training versus the strange flight of broken and used birdies.

    Default Snow Peak Badminton Shuttles

    I will recomend Snow Peak Superior Grade C1101, It is very similar to AS40, and cheaper, check it out on the web site snowpeakbadminton.com

    while there is about 40/60 split in preference of plastic vs feather shuttlecock based on the poll results, but in the badminton hall around the areas that I used to play, I see at least 9 out of 10 courts are using feather shuttlecock, why the discrepancies?

    I think that there are more plastic shuttlecock users in North America and fewer in Asian and Europe.

    I've been using Hi-Qua Purples. At less than US$10 a tube from mybadmintonstore.com they are a really good deal and the durability is pretty solid (after steaming).

    The HIQUA Purple from mybadmintonstore is not The HIQUA Purple that is normally seen in North America. The later is much more expensive.

    The tube definitely looks different:


    And they seem to be much less expensive than in the US. In addition mybadmintonstore.com sells shuttlecocks with different names than the Hi-Qua webpage lists (Gold, Green, Orange, Purple, Blue, Red & Special Edition vs Chester, Blue, Purple, Orange, Legacy & Team). Maybe they produce different shuttles for the Asian market.

    I've never compared them to the Purples you can get in the US. I should note that the Hi-Qua Blues at mybadmintonstore.com are about the same price as in the US. Maybe they got a special deal on the purples.

    Either way, the purples from mybadmintonstore.com are a great practice birdie at under $10 a tube.
