    Question Carlton GT1

    Hey,

    Does anyone have experience with this shuttlecock?
    I want to buy a few, and until now I've heard good stories.
    Here anybody?

    This is de Dutch name for this shuttle, I don't know the Asian and the English (if they have another name?)

    The shuttle is a little light. The durability and flight is ok. The RSL Tourney No.1 is better.

    Well, I want to buy shuttlecocks, but not to expensive. I can this one buy for €16,50 each at my club here. So that is the easiest way to buy them

    The RSL's should be about the same price but the durability is better. Maybe someone at the club who's selling shuttles?

    You can also find RSL tourney classic for 18 euros in Belgium of France that might be a little better than tourney 1

    sound like the GT1 Is a better shuttlecock then, RSL is to heavy, they feel more like duck-feather shuttles. good durability but pretty bad performance.. Have not tried GT1, but feeling lighter and still be durable indicates it is a better shuttlecock!

    Actually, I meant that the RSL is better. Better durability.

    I haven't used the GT1 many times to compare in detail. But the RSL is definately better.

    RSL is a lot heavier and the way they break is not good, the feathers snap leaving sharp edges, which I managed to cut my hand on... Silliest injury I have ever got!

    The RSL is still a good shuttle in terms of flight, I just think the GT1 does everything the RSL does without the disadvantages. I have found durability between both to vary between tubes, with the GT1 maintaining flight if it is damaged slightly. RSL once they are slightly damaged tend to slow down a lot.

    I personally prefer the GT1's as the feathers are less brittle and the shuttle is lighter yet still has the same flight.

    However it would appear that not everyone agrees, so maybe neither is that much better than the other and it all depends on personal preference.

    Just order speed +1 shuttles for Carlton, the flight and durability are ok, speed is most of the times too slow when you compare to others and the price is also too high

    What do you mean with:

    Speed is most of the times too slow when you compare to others?

    You can make shuttles faster, don't?
    You can also shuttles make slower

    And why do you think the price is too high?
    De quality / price?
