    Default That's what the front door Buzzer is for!

    There is a front door buzzer by the side of the door. Press that and someone will let you in. Come in the gym, look lost - we will find you.

    I believed 8-ish pm (although I probably have to wait for Txyu to contact me when he gets into town).

    you could probably pick up a tube from WWC. You won't need too many shuttles, but you should chip some in when you are joining in a game or group. It is customary for a group of 4 players to each chip in one shuttle each at the start of the games. Often the group stays and plays more games together until the shuttles run out, at which time each players chips in evenly. At the end of the games, when you all break to play other people, often you toss the shuttle and see who it points to. Closest person gets that shuttle. makes it quite fair.

    The thing worse than a guest who does not pay the drop-in fee, is that same guest mooches on shuttles too, followed closely by one who mooches shuttles and can't hit worth a crap and damages other's shuttles with their poor stroking!

    haha... dat's Y i got a whole tube... actually... 2 tubes... but I already tried playing with a few today. Feather feels so much more different than playing with nylon... might need some time to get used to it tomolo especially with the speed you guys prolly play at.

    Btw, I know I prolly should post this in the equipment forum, but I think this may not apply to everyone. I got a tube of silver (victor) and it says it's for practice, and I checked the tube and I found most of them aren't that well made... feathers were already flipped different sized feathers etc... so I thought I should bring something better(dun wanna seem lik a cheapass =P) so I got a tube of gold... but I dunno it's just me or wut, but some of them were worst than the silver ones...

    From my experience, Victor Gold and Silver are quite similar in quality. They both wear out about as fast... the difference between them seems mostly in their weight and thus flight behaviour. You won't see a noticeable difference in shuttle life until you go up to Victor Blue, their tournament grade I think it is. And Victor Green, their top of the line(?), is even more noticeably resilient. At VRC, I've seen every grade from silver to green being used. The most common, that I've seen, being blue and green.

    As long as the shuttles you bring are decent quality (last more than a few hard rallies without miss-hits) it won't matter what brand they are. As badrad says, be more concerned about miss-hitting and destroying perfectly good shuttles. Everyone miss-hits now and then but if you're a walking shuttle killer then people won't be able to AFFORD to play with you hehehe~ .

    Default silver and gold

    victors were a low end attempt to stem the battle of inexpensive asian shuttles. the prices for the silver and gold were made competitive to many of the shuttles that players bring back from their shopping trips from China. It was also a brand that coaches or other dealers can sell.

    Unfortunately the price matching didn't come close to the quality matching. Many of the low price shuttles from China are of acceptable play quality, while even the gold victor does not come close to matching it's own Victor Tourney (blues).


    I bought some tubes of the gold and silvers when they first came out. The worse shuttles I had ever played without even considering their prices. From the local supplies, I'm quite happy with Sosan Black for day to day playing. The Green Yipu is cheaper and accceptable, but does change flight patterns after a few hits.

    Serious games still call for Greens or Yonex AS50's.

    BTW: there is supposed to be a new series of feather and synthetic shuttle coming out from Victor. There is a contest at the VRC for coming up with a new name for these shuttles.

    Awhh...did I hurt your little feelings??? Didn't know that you were planning on coming considering that seniors have priority but with little badrad around, I don't see why not.

    Oh yes, Dropsmash too.
