A feather would be a definite choice. If you practice all the time using a plastic shuttle , you will feel very much different when hitting a feather shuttle in a game. I think that although plastic shuttles are rather durable compared to feather , the quality of practice is greatly reduced.

Some of you have mentioned in various posts that you can bend the "feathers" of a nylon birdie and make it go as fast as a bullet so that it is unreturnable. My question is whether this is something that occasionally happens or is it automatic with you all. The reason I ask is because I have played with both feather and nylon but have been playing with nylon for much longer and personally have seen this done only 2-3 times in a 10 year span. I, myself, cannot do this but I don't doubt that there might be some of you that can create this phenomenon occasionally and maybe even frequently.
I practice with both feather and nylon; it just depends in which place I play.

For wall practice and warm-up shots I use a yonex mavis 300 but when in play I prefer a feather shuttle of course.
I prefer the Tronex Championship Grade Goose Feather shuttles because they would last about 2-3 games (for us hard hitters) compared to the RSL Tourney 1 shuttles which can only last for about 1 set. Maybe it's just me though. =p

Is Victor (Champion - green tube) shuttlecock still as good as before? Went to Malaysia and got a tube since I saw it. I have not seen it sold here in Singapore. (perhaps in Queensway but haven't been there in a while...)

Not quite. Plastics will develop your reflex but more than likely it will make you lazy in game situation because if you can hit hard with the shuttle you don't need to aim too much. That means you get less variety shots that'll move you around the court. Feathers all the way (unless cost hinders you too much).

Feather all the way. To me, feather creates more shot and more technique needed. Control and smarts is the main idea when using a feather to me. Playing with plastic seems to be the complete opposite to me, to me, people tend to be more of a power player when using plastic, instead of actually thinking about the shot of placement and the smarts of the game like feather would make you think. Thats all me, i know some of you are gonna be like wTf hes weird of that doesnt make sense, but to sum it up, feather is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I usually make use of used shuttles found in bins to practise, if they're still in good condition. Plastic shuttles are horrible.

i always use used feathers for practice.

I'd go for feather, it's better (to me.)

The shuttles people use depend on 2 things I think...
2 good player or not (beginners usually use plastic)
I more like the feathers and I do train with them...
When we have played a match, we take all the used birdies together and we put them in a big box. When we train we take those shuttles, they are great to train with.

I prefer feathers.
But since I'm cheap and poor. I have to use plastic.

i always use feathers nowadays, use a cheaper shuttle for training thow, usually part used ones

lol i'd go with plastics for the main part..but switching to duck feathers to experiment ^^...

I've never practiced with feather. I've only used plastic. Is that why I think my smashes are always slower? Haha. And also since plastics have slower smash speed, how should I change my game tactics?
