    You play at the walnut gym too?? I will probably be there this sat at 5pm to test out my elbow. I usually play at ABC, but injured my elbow (golfer's) so I suspended my membership there for now.

    Anyway, hopefully Taneepak will send you the shuttles soon

    Default ^^I hope so..^^

    ..i think i've seen you play @ ABC before..Brian, right?? play w/left-hand??..

    Off topic:
    I've played & used to frequent @ Walnut gym before, but not as often anymore..
    If you'd like you could play & join @ another baddy club in Claremont @ Pomona College (Rains Gym). I usually play there if the semesters are in session. They have an open gym every Saturday from 2 pm til 5 pm, 6 courts. It's supposed to be only for students @ the Claremont Colleges, but guests can still play there for free. The good thing is that it's not crowded. Just bring your own racket and shuttles.

    Should have read this before getting the RSL#1. Bad mistake. These are really bad. Flight was okay for the first few strokes but durability totally sucks. Becomes inconsistent quite fast and hardly last a few hard smashes -- feather or cork gets damaged too easily. We used 3 shuttles in 1 of our 21pt set when we can use a single EG1130 for at least 3 sets. IOW, the RSL is worth at most 1/3 the price of the EG to break even.

    You are right it's not even comparable to Aeroplane SG or ChaoPai purple.

    D&A Red is good, but not as good as AS-50. As far as what I have, the durability is not top grade.

    Well, we've debated this subject for some time and yet we can't agree there is a shuttle on the market as good as Yonex AS50.

    What's available in one country has never been seen in another.

    They do say that quality doesn't come cheap. That said, we all have to evaluate based on value for money. Some people will pay less and yet use 2-3 times as many shuttles. Usually this means they could have used AS50 and probably got a better deal.

    Most of the cheaper shuttles when discarded are totally spent and good for nothing. At least with AS50 you can still use them for training.

    Personally, I would love to use AS50 but have decided to settle for AS30, a kind of middle ground. I've tried so many shuttles and had poor experiences. Some are too slow, some fluff up too quickly, some are too brittle (and they were stored correctly) - the list goes on.

    I'd love to try some of the makes you've mentioned. Don't want to import them into the UK and pay tax on them. The tax alone may price them outside of Yonex prices anyway.

    But, it proves that along with racquets, shoes etc it's all about personal taste and judgement.

    Maybe it's a good thing that we're all different. Otherwise there would only be one brand in the badminton universe and the prices may go up again!

    To your success
