Thread: Garuda Shuttlecocks

Hi...anybody has any experience to share about the products of Garuda Shuttlecocks?
I friend of mine is working in the company and he asked for my opinion which i would like to share with all of you as well...
It is made in Indonesia and they said was already approved by IBF for their top line product...The Garuda International.
I tried several feather birdie and it's very good. and the price is around 6-7 US$ only for each dozen... much cheaper than Yonex, or other world famous brands...

i used about a tube of Garuda shuttles a few years ago. forgot which model though. i won't use them ever again unless i get them for free and i have no other shuttles. rather stick with RSL Tourney, Ashaway Black, Protech (forgot model), An-Yu Red(?). All those are affordable and decent.

@badwing, Garuda now is poor quality not like Garuda i recognized long time ago. I try all type even International type and both factory Budiono and i forgot the other one
Seem to me Garuda and even Gajahmada is lowering their feather quality for affordable price but failed to impress me and my gank Other local brand give us a better quality in cheaper price.....i miss the old day

Hi llpjlau,...thanks for the advice... how much is the cost of RSL Tourney, Ashaway, or Protech you were mentioning per dozen? I rarely find those here in my city... mostly local brands. I would like to buy them when i travel to Singapore.
Btw what problems you were encountering with Garuda birdies? Is it fragile? is it not balanced and straight during flight?
Coz i tried one dozen of International and i guess it's very good...hahaha maybe coz its just me . thx!

Hi issarakaya, thanks for your comments... maybe it's true Garuda used to be Indo's best birdie.. may i ask when is the last time you tried any Garuda? And what local brands you would suggest me to try? Thanks a lot

the Garuda shuttles i used in the past were made of duck feathers, so the flight is different to "normal" shuttlecocks, and they only last a few hits. i personally would not buy any shuttles made in Indonesia. would rather stick to the ones from China.

Before I use Garuda cocks, but now I use King Cobra... the reason is feather more durable.

Who is your friend who work at Garuda Shuttlecocks?
he or she must be in Garuda Budiono right?
For your announcement,
Now Garuda Torasakti not producing Garuda International, for long time.
All We made is just rounted feathers. For Pointed Our Product is not much, hard to find now. Our Pointed product for now is just Macan Silver ( Macan Hijau ).
We know that Garuda International not enough durable,
and yes at the last product we use duck feathers, The best duck feathers.
Good feather but we still using the old manufacturing, old technology, not good anymore...
We still Search the best formula for the Garuda International ^^...
I will tell you guys when the new Garuda International is ready to lauch...
We try not to dissapointed you all twice or more.
For A long time Garuda International is not approved by IBF as i know.
But if you search Garuda Torasakti product for pointed feathers you can search for Macan Silver ( Macan Hijau ), Ghoose feather but Thin one, Durability is good enough i hope ^^
If anybody already try Macan Silver, please tell us your critics.
Your critics if good experience for us ^^...
Thanks A Lot...

Thanks for your input...
I truly don't know which factory my friend is working...hahaha I forgot to ask, maybe in Budiono.. but I have tried both Garuda Budiono and Torasakti products. Both are good in my opinion. Torasakti has better package and design.
Really? No more Torasakti International? Bcoz last year I still remember using those...
I tried Macan Silver... neat product but unfortunately ..the speed is too fast, durability is average ... I played in Cimahi ..West Java and many don't like fast shuttles.. maybe you could produce adjusted speed for the Macan? ...

Yes no more Garuda International, We just made it for spesial order only. Last year we still made it but not to much.
You must try Rounted Shuttlecock right? Our Rounted Shuttlecock is our top quality, Garuda Hijau and Garuda Crystal Merah ( Tora - Tora Classic ) is our best seller now.
We just have 2 product is same with Garuda Budiono, it's Garuda International and Garuda Hijau only.
Yes We redesign all pakaging hahaha...
Badwing where do you live? Bandung?
Maybe i can send you sample, and try Our new Garuda International ^^.

Yes, made in Indo PT Lion...Gold 56ribu in local store, Black 63ribu
RSL Tourney available in pasar pagi asemka, No 1 currently out of stock from Jan but No 2 available in 160ribuan...i never tried no 2 but my friend told me it's good. But no 5,6,7 all of them is poor durability, nice fly and stability but easily break

assarakaya when you try Macan Shuttlecock last time??
Yes i have research for macan for a long time hehehe..
know i can control the speed now. it's about mixing between weigh and the speed of rotation ^^. i get some good formula, all my friend like it already hehehe... hope you like it. i send sample for badwing first ^^...
i don't know price in the market.
the price maybe at Rp. 40.000,00 - Rp. 50.000,00 for macan
The price for Garuda International i haven't been decided hahaha....
maybe start at Rp. 70.000,00 - Rp. 80.000,00
Ingredients is so expensive now ~_~
The diferent of RSL Turney No. 1 and No. 2 is just how big and perfect the feathers. No.1 is Full perfect Double wing feathers, No.2 theres a little wrong cut or the feathers not perfectly double wings ( big Double Wings ) ^^. I suggest you tu buy No. 2 it's same quality, same durability ^^.
same with RSL No.5,6,7. No. 4 is full perfect double wings, No. 5 is big half double wing, No. 6 is Medium Half Double Wing, No. 7 is small double wing. i pefer you to buy RSL no. 5. No 6 and No.7 is to much shake
that will be good if i can give the picture of the feather ahahah... i will post latter. RSL 1,2 is using goose feathers, RSL 4 to 7 is using duck feathers. thats way durability is diferent ^^
