we always use feather in China, you know, China produce different grade of shuttlecocks, from USD 4.20 to 20.00 grade,different grade for different players, usually we use USD6.00 grade for practice, and USD 10.00-13.00 grade for tournament, and we buy it from factory in bulk, and the price is much competitive.

Feather shuttle, - because in a real tournament you'll be using a feather shuttle.
Plastic will fly further faster, so it doesn't give you as good of an idea of how much power you need for a certain shot.

If you ever intend or wish to play at any level using feather shuttlecocks, you should only ever use them. Playing with plastic shuttlecocks is a tottally different thing.
In my club, everyone in the top 30% for any age group uses Yonex AeroSensa 50 shuttlecocks for practice and Yonex F-90 shuttlecocks for matches; the remainder tends to use Yonex AeroSensa 40 shuttlecocks for practice, Yonex AeroSensa 50 for general matches and Yonex F-90 only for large, organized tournaments. The club has a shuttlecock provider and buys them in bulk.
In terms of how often we switch shuttlecocks, the club's elite (the top 50) normally use 2 or 3 per tournament game (4-6 per tournament match), and normally use 1 per game in a casual match, switching once every 10 minutes in practice. Most of the club uses 1 Yonex F-90 shuttlecock per tournament game (2 per match), and 1 Yonex AeroSensa 50 per tournament game (2 per match) in casual matches.
Although this sort of stuff might cost a lot of money, I suppose it's worth it to train future professionals.

feather definitely, plastic is a piece of sh** that bounces like hell with a VERY light tap

Nylon shuttlecock is suitable for club practice or beginner, and feather shuttlecock professional trainning. Here I recommand GOGO SY03(nylon) and BS01(feather) which are loved for durability and reasonale price. You may find them at some sporting websites such as Atafa.com, or visit Google Shopping directly to search for more info.

we use plastic for the 2 lowest grades in national competition. All grades above must use feathers.

I definately prefer plastic. I got 3 tubes of shuttles for Christmas, (holy crap, I know) 2 plastic, 1 feather. I asked my friend to come have a few games, and I decided I'd take the feathers ones. It was destroyed within half an hour. This is why I hate 'em. They break SO easily, too easily infact, so I just stick to plastics. They never break.

Ok plastic is more resistant than feathers but the flight is different. I like feathers but I still cannot play official matches because of my grade.
But that will change this year
Feather and plastic is like cars, I'll take a Ferrari above a Mazda 323 because it's a real car with a real engine but the Mazda will live longer

Pretty sure a Mazda is a real car with a real engine too ^_^
