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

if you buy in bulk, you can find some good quality shuttlecock from China, you know there are many factory can produce good goose shuttlecock with high stability, YONEX 50 in china market, is around 23USD, just try to find good way for your play.

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

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
