Cheapest, but Good Feather Birds
I'd like to know what is the cheapest, but also lasts the longest, feather bird in Ontario, Canada. My friends said it was Sea Lion brand, but I forgot what type it is. Everyone can contribute, but I'd like to know from the people of Ontario more, since I live there.

Do a search. I believe Victor is suppose to have really good birds but this topic has been talked about before.

In us market, Aeroplane G1130 is around $12 and G1130SS is around $14. Both are IBF approved. The only difference is, G1130SS is "preminum grade feather", G1130 is "1st grade". However, I can't really tell the difference.
In China, the corresponding code is 101 (G1130ss), 202 (G1130).

is that price in US or is it Canadian?

that price is in US$ of course, since he's in the US. In Toronto, they usually go for $18-$22 per tube. So $14US = $21 roughly exchanged @ 1.54. I personally like the red Hi-Qua...not too expensive and it actually lasts after steaming them of course. Most tubes go for within the $18-$22 range...including the 'black & white' Sea Lion you mentioned...

For your reference, here in the Philippines there are a wide variety of shuttles like Trump (very cheap but not good), Tronex, DFS, Gosen, Yonex, Wilson, Carlton and even Prince. The last two tubes I've bought were Yonex AS-10 and MMOA Super Select MS-850 (both at P 550, a little more than US$ 10). The prices are a little less than retail (around US$ 13), bought from a relative with sources.
