Cheap shuttles in Hong Kong
Hi, I will be travelling to Hong Kong in august; just wondering where I can get cheap AS40s and their prices as well? Thanks.

I will be there the week of 17th Aug and will play with some local group.
Anyway, I don't think shuttle cheaper in HK.
Singapore has some pretty good prices for non yonex shuttles compare to other countries. So far, I think prices in Malaysia cheaper and they are also using same speed as Singapore (77 or 49). I found RSL No.1 for around S$20 per tube at Pertama Komplex ! Singapore is at least S$25 per tube.

NEVER GO TO ROSE SPORT IN WANCHAI!!!! I LIVE IN HK, and those service in WANCHAI is terrible......GO to Mongkok.....=]]]]......But I am not sure if Rose sport is the cheapest place to buy shuttlecock...It think you should walk around and see if there is any cheaper place to buy shuttlecocks.....BTW, AS30 cost $21, i dunno if it's cheaper in HK...

RSL Classic is not close to AS40, especially the head, becomes soft after a game or so. A little disappoint about it. For the top line shuttlecock, RSL does not use quality head material as other brands. However, the flight is super.

The very top goose feather shuttlecocks use either all natural cork or a 3-layer cork top/composite middle/cork bottom. The second tier high quality shuttlecocks, usually used on grade A+ duck feathers or grade A or A- goose feathers, use a 2-layer base like the one shown in the picture purportedly to be a Yonex AS-50 base.

This AS-50 is what I showed here, bought from a local store. www.badminton.net
Both Aeroplane Black and Red are two layers as well. As for RSL Classic, it's disappointed to see that it's low end cork material.
