    Plastic.

    My high school only lets us use plastic shuttlecocks for practice, first time I saw a feathered one was last year when some of the Varsity members were doing drills.

    feathers are in very high demand but what I don't get it why aren't there cheaper durable feather birdies????? Is yonex still monopolizing the general public to buy their 20$ one tube stack that only holds 12 birds??????????????????????????????????
    Seriously, there should be a company already that can compete that price at a much lower rate. Then they'll be the favorite easily and affordable to just about everybody even kids.

    depends who you're practicing with. serious players definitely would opt for feathers, birdie actually last longer with good players. provided that is the branded feathered birdie.

    Use both plastics and feathers.
    Prefer feathers becasue you can feel when you have hit, the noise, the weight, the glide but personally dont have much problem changing over so far.
    Certainly notice the difference when messing around playing tight net shots to each other the plastic starts behaving erratically!

    tried googling but got conflicting answers. Which travels further feathers or plastics or are they the same?

    And how good are these mavis 2000 plastics?

    I supose for us western badminton players it will be a great day when faethers will be able to copied synthetically. they'll be lot of club badminton players with more money in their pockets.

    Being cynical as I am it makes you wonder if this already isn't possible and patent has been bought and shelved to protect profits.

    IMHO, Malaysians are a blessed lot. Reasonably priced rackets to choose from. Massive and dedicated badminton halls everywhere (20 - 30++ teraflex rubber carpets per hall are the norm). And a long history with badminton as one of the most popular sports in the country. Good feather shuttlecocks costs from RM50-65 (US$15-20) per dozen.

    Factor all of the above in, and since most of us baddie players pick the sport from the seniors (read: learned ones), i can safely say almost all of us started and stuck with feathers from day 1.

    From the earliest of my memories, i can recall that there were no shortage of used feather shuttlecocks in my home. My dad was (and still is) an avid player back in the days, and he would collect used ones for my friends and me to practice. The only time i used the plastic shuttlecocks where when my friend brought some over to play outdoors over the house gates.

    You can't practice slicing and deceptive shots with plastics. So it depends one the objectives of your practice.

    We use plastic shuttles to train, we use the mavis 370 (clostest to the feather shuttles) because feather shuttles would be to expensive because we don't have enough members but I use feathers quite alot with a couple of guys we order feather shuttles.
    ith plastics you don't have alot of long rally's and feathers forces you to hit control shots like net drops good clears etc.

    But from my experience what I gained alot from playing with plastiic shuttles for a long time is speed, because it goes faster than the feather shuttles so you need to get to the shuttle faster. I guess for training your walking techique* plastics are good but for control and drops feather is better.

    * with walking techique i mean how you move on the court :P I know bad english.

    How is the quality and price of sealion as compare to RSL classic.
    Presently we are using RSL but find that the quality varies so thinking of changing.
    Would appreciate if you can tell us more.
