Yang Yang 30B and Hoang Yen A5
Can anybody give me their preferences on these shuttle cocks please? I'm trying to chose between the two, for 10 doz of the Yang Yang 30B I will pay 110$ USD (including shipping) and for the 10 doz of Hoag Yen A5 I will pay about 120$ USD (including shipping) So please give me your opinions on these feathered birds if you have tried them / played with them before.
Thanks you all

I'd say Yang Yang. Hoang Yen last half a game (a dozen points) even when hydrated, and they don't even fly that well. Yang Yang fly decently, but last a full set when hydrated.
But I say Aeroplane black. even though 110USD will only get you 5 doz from shuttles.com, it is well worth it, as long as you steam them or hydrate them. My one tube of Aeroplane black is only half gone, while I've gone through 3 tubes of my Yang Yangs, and I've played the same amount of matches. It makes me regret getting the Yang Yang, even though they were a ridiculously good deal.

They are not as stable as the expensive shuttlecock (costing twice the price) but for club play I dont care...
For tournaments and high level games we use the Hoang Yen Sp Blue which plays the same as Victor Green...This is by far the best shuttlecock from this factory...
