    the reason for me to ask this question is because recently the price of shuttlecocks go up and up and up. yet, the quality of shuttlecock go down and down and down. those big names such as RSL, snow peak are not the same as what i have used in the past. the most noticeable difference is the durability. sometime within 1 match you need to change 2-3 shuttlecocks (may be is because of my skill).

    well, yonex is good but price is expensive and i feel like there must be some other brand in this world should be cheap (compare Yonex) and good in quality.

    My club is base in West London and i am interimediate player. so if any good suggestion i will have a try.

    May be you can try YangYang 99A or 2000B, their 300B is top range and approved by IBF. The quality is nice, specially the durability.

    Default yang yang 99a review

    Yesterday, I tried Yang Yang 99A. When I looked at it externally, I felt it is very delicate and fine in detail. Straight a way, you can imagine that those feathers must be carefully selected. The frame is strong but is not rock hard. If you slightly press the frame, you will feel it has elasticity. That means during the match, your shot is more dynamic.

    After a match (I won 21-15), I noticed 2 things. First, it is the sound comes out from the shot. The sound is loud and clear. It has a “bong” sound. “Bong” sound mean that the shuttle can withstand your hitting power. And the structure of the shuttle is still firmly intact. Of course string tension will have effect as well. Secondly, the shuttle fly consistently and accurate as well. I remembered when I served; I can clearly see the tip of each feather from my court. That means the shuttle didn’t have any irregular movement.

    However, one thing you guys need to be aware of, in my opinion I think 99A more suitable for intermediate / advance player. It is because when you miss hit the shuttlecock a few time result into 1 or 2 feathers break off. This is the time the shuttle fly funny. E.g. speed will slow down suddenly, shuttle spinning etc. On the other hand, funny enough if you are able to hit it accurately the shuttle can last for much more than you can imagine.

    Overall, surely Yang Yang 99A is a very high quality shuttlecock. Flight accuracy and fight consistency reach the highest level. The impact feel is very realistic and very firm. Shuttle durability is good (depend on your skill). The more importantly, the price is very low. I am very happy using this kind of money to buy such good quality shuttlecocks.

    Default share the experience using yang yang 99a

    finally i have a chance to use yang yang 99a, externally, I felt it is very delicate and fine in detail. The frame is strong but is not rock hard. It has elasticity. The shuttle fly consistently and accurate. The impact feel is very realistic and very firm. Shuttle durability is good. also the price is quite cheap. i strongly recommend it. however, just feel that is more suitable for intermediate / advance player.

    i think in UK there just 1 place you can buy that which is ebay.co.uk. have a look.

    The real test is to subject it to the "Testing a shuttle for speed" test. No matter how good or expensive it is, if it cannot reach the range distance then how can it be good?

    i quite agree taneepak,

    i recently bought 50quids worth of aeroplanes, some red, some green, and some black. all were great in consistency, and flight, and durability, but all landed a gud meter at least short of the mark. was crap, literally, trying to clear back to back was impossible, bare in mind some of us are county level, to not be able to hit these shuttls to the back was just silly.

    needless to say i shant be buying anymore aeroplane shuttles.

    There is a good and fundamental reason why there are two markers on either side of the court for testing the speed of the shuttle. It is a sort of shuttle "compass", similar to the use of a gray card for optimal dynamic range and proper exposure in photography. But, unlike a gray card which is calibrated dead in the middle, in badminton the shuttle speed test markers "sets" the maximum distance a player can hit from low to high. Once you have "calibrated" the right shuttle you can then hit shots from end to end, thus "stretching" the extra space that was never available with incorrect speed shuttles. The game opens up more space and is more enjoyable.
    For beginners who are used to playing with cheap, heavy, and hard shuttles, changing to better shuttles that give the correct speed may need some adjustment as many will complain they often hit out-but that is only when they hit shots that are half-a-length short. Their lack of control in such shots are due to old habits from playing too long with incorrect speed shuttles.
    It is not possible to make very good shuttles from either low grade feathers, base, resin/glue. It is also not possible to make very good shuttles from the best goose feathers of the wrong type. A good shuttlecock is like a bird in flight, and any bird that can fly higher has feathers that are built for lift and flight whereas a low flying goose will have perfect feathers that are even better than those from high-flying geese but they do not give much "lift", hence they are not ideal for top quality badminton shuttlecocks. Low-flying geese have feathers that are picture perfect that they look like God's work. But they are used for low end shuttlecocks.
    A shuttle must not be too light or too heavy. Although a range of 4.74 g to 5.50 g is often given, the best weight is about 4.8 g to 5.0g. However, only very good feathers with high lift and good flight weighing 4.8 g can be hit effortlessly from end to end. Lower grades need at least 5.0 g or even more.
    As a rough rule a speed 77 shuttle should weigh not more than 5.0 g to hit from end to end. If one speed 77 shuttle weighs 4.8g and another speed 77shuttle weighs 5.1 g, and both reach the same distance on a speed test, then the shuttle weighing 4.8 g is a much better shuttle. The reason is that feathers with high lift, provided they also have good "bend" or straight shaft, encounter less air resistance. That hard feeling shuttlecocks is your feedback that your shuttle is facing very heavy air resistance. It has minimal lift and will fall onto the floor faster and with a thud. If you play too long with such shuttles you may be unknowingly slipping into the plastics shuttlecock type of badminton game.

    How much are your snowpeak shuttles Mr.G?

    I run a junior club and senior and would be interested in purchasing some.

    Would you consider sending a sample?
