    I like the feel of feathers much better, but my high school league only uses plastic. So only plastic for me.

    What does one do if one tournament uses feathers and another one uses plastics. One needs to adjust to them and its quiet a challenge. For example AS2 as compared to AS40 is quiet different in terms of speed and both of them are quiet different from Mavis 350. Has anyone mastered this frequent changes? Are there any pointers that can help in this regard. The recent tournament i am playing is held in Kanson 50. I have never played with this one and was not comfortable at all with the shuttle. Fortunately i was able to beat a few folks in the first few rounds and now i am in QF. From here on i need to be better if i need to go any further.

    Since plastic is almost more expensive than feather in Sweden/Denmark I play with feathers.
    The Yonex Mavis 350 is about 10 euros for 6 shuttles' and I found a store in Denmark that sels Li-Ning A300 (12pcs) for 15 euros.

    We had Chao Pai Reds, Aeroplane Black for training.

    I would train with feather anyday than plastic as for training, it is crucial you get a sense of feather shuttle timing, and well as feather feel since it may be beneficial when you actually play a match.

    We use plastic for recreation though, but it is hell on thin gauge strings..

    One on one they may cost the same but plastics are way more durable so in the end much cheaper.
