Thanks Taneepak for the clear explanation. In my opinion, speed does not reflect the quality of a shuttlecock though speed is something you need to consider when purchasing shuttlecocks. Speed label of 1 brand may differ from the other. Speed 76 of 1 brand may mean 77 of the other depending on how the speed testing was run. As long as you find the quality of a shuttlecock is good, you can choose the correct speed of a particular brand to suit your play.
If you can read Chinese, I found that this article particularly good. It says the most important factors to consider the quality of a shuttlecock are
a. Flight Stability
Speed is something you need to consider but does not reflect the quality.

Just feel the hitting feel not that solid compare to RSL Tourney No.1 & Tourney Classic and especially Yonex AS20 that I play usually... Just my personal opinion only... I might try out others higher spec RCL shuttlecock later on as I only try this RCL New Classic...

Yup, had tried the Titanium, and my group all agreed that its better then PT-10, Protech, and many brands dat we had tried (All range from $26-$29). Really highly recommend to all.

I have been to Butterworth yesterday and tried this RCL Platinum Gold but i just bought 1pc to try and it cost me RM5 from the court owner. It's quite ok but when hitting the cork is feel bit softer compare to others and my gf like it...
Just curious how is the RCL shuttlecock range structure looks alike such as RSL will be bit like Official --> Silver Feather --> Tourney No.1 --> Tourney Classic......

The thing with RCL is we do 'OEM' to sports shops. Just like Tesco has their own Tesco tissues etc. However, our 'OEM' still put under RCL name but with some sport shops which we 'OEM' have their own models.
However, there are 'OPEN' model that any sports shops can sell. Below are the 'OPEN' models for reference.
1.RCL No.1 (around RM65)
2.RCL Titanium (around RM56)
3.RCL Gold No.1(around RM51)
4. RCL Professional (around RM46)
5. RCL Super (around RM40)
6. RCL 1101
7. RCL 1102
8. RCL 1103
9. RCL 501
10. RCL 601
11. RCL 1104
Item 6 to 11 are more for beginners to school kids.

If I am not mistaken, if you are playing attacking game, harder cork let you feel more power. However, if you like to control ball, it is easier to control with softer cork. And one good thing about softer cork is, it will prolong your racket string lifecycle since less impact on the string.
Penang (where Lee Chong Wei is from) people like softer cork, maybe (just wild guess) this is why Lee Chong Wei's game more towards controlling ball rather than attacking play. And maybe this is the reason RCL is so popular in Penang.

the one i bought in permai sports was Super gold i guess, the color same as shown above, last sunday a friend sold to me RCL Best Gold i think, which AFAIC, Super gold is much more stable and good in quality compared to BEst gold.correct me if i'm wrong, just our observation.
