    i voted for feathers for the simple reason that A) my club can afford feather shuttles and all tournaments i entire are feather and B) my coach provides feather shuttles for free

    so it depends on individual circumstances to whether you use feathers or plastics

    i use feathers. using feathers makes the practice more enjoyable. it also allows me to try various shots which i find difficult with a plastic shuttle

    do I have to memorize this?? .......feather, of course.... I would go to the court counter and ask for the box of practice shuttles (which are the used shuttles left lying on the floor after a match and picked up by the cleaners). Also, I also recyle used shuttles as long as the flight is still tolerable. In my bag I usually have two tubes: one is for fresh birds, the other is for bruised and beaten birds.

    Plastic, feathers don’t last a quarter of the time.

    wish that they will develop nylon/ vinyl/ plastic shuttles which simulate the flight of feather

    I practice with old feather birdies but I sometime will use Hiqua Team 24 feather birdies. They are pretty cheap practice birdies. A tube of 24 is about $15USD.

    Feather shuttles of course! when we train, we use the not-as new shuttles and when we play a game, we use the all-new shuttles.

    Who needs to drop or tumble when, if you hit it hard enough, you can fold the feathers on a plastic shuttle for an unreturnable smash?

    See? It all works out.
    Personally I use plastic since I don't compete or do any serious badminton.. but I have used feather and I find it difficult to switch from either to the other. Best to stick with what you're comfortable with, I think.

    I have to use plastic, since that's what I'll be trying out for my team with. My school is full of cheap people, so plastic it is.

    Feather for anything that involves hitting. Plastics for drills that are just footwork that require birds because there aren't always old birds to use. A tube of cheap plastic last for the rest of eternity because i don't hit them XD
