    Question Sub 12 tournament level/BWF approved shuttlecocks in the UK?

    Hello All,

    The cheapest BWF approved shuttlecock I've found are Aeroplane G1130 from supersporty for 11.99. http://www.supersporty.co.uk/BWF_App...30_Green_Label

    Anyone know of any cheaper options/supplier on any of the BWF approved shuttles? http://www.internationalbadminton.or....aspx?id=11228

    Supersporty only seem to sell 78 in this shuttlecock and that is too fast right now with hall temperatures being what they are.

    Unfortunately, I think that'll be as low as you can get in the UK, unless you know someone who can obtain supplies direct from Asia (which might not be saving that much due to crap exchange rates, unless you buy in bulk).

    I guess you could alway try tipping the Speed 78 shuttles to get them to the required speed?

    Yes, we have been tipping the aeroplanes I already bought, but I get the feeling that by tipping you harm the durability of the shuttlecock.

    I'm after 77s at the moment, but maybe in a month or 2 we'll want to go back up to 78.

    Actually only Aeroplane G1130(black) is approved. Try Yang 300B, they are 77 from supersporty. In this damn heat I have found out, that 77 is slow, 78 feels too fast, but in testing the speed is right. Yang is 13.50 though.
    And I wouldn't put my money on BWF logo

    I've tried two samples from Supersporty. YangYang 99A (77) and aeroplane G1130 green label speed 78. Bearing in mind that the Aeroplane is 2.00 more expensive I was unable to test properly as its speed test was nearly a whole metre short/slow. Even comparing to the ashaway international 77's that we're currently using this time of year. The Yangyang 99A was surprisingly good value at 9.99, good durability, flight and feel.

    So, maybe the Aeroplane tube sample is incorrectly badged at 78. It looks and feels a quality shuttle but difficult to assess its durability when having to spank the thing so hard! I'm waiting to hear back from Supersporty.

    So it's YangYang 99A for now.
