    Do I get this right: 10 tubes for $61,99? If so it's an obvious fake because you would pay 1/3 of the normal price.

    the temptation is always there. but so far we have not seen a case where it didn't end up in disappointment.

    The website is legit, the seller is unknown. It's like an asian version of ebay.

    This fake is pirate version

    I found the whole package is very rough I file a compliant on aliexpress where they accept fake products for sale and I could not leave my feedback and comment on supplier . So it's web shown 100% satisfied

    the thing about buying directly from factory is pretty much like you're gambling, if you get lucky you might actually be buying from a factory who's making shuttlecock for a good brands and you get decent quality, but you don't know who's who, so it's a risk to take

    If there are OEM birdies...it would be fine! At least it may keep the brand name standard. Unfortunately if they keep the outlook packaging and put the garbbage into it. It should be shabby business.

    There may be lot of good sellers in Aliexpress. But how do I find who is good? I could not refer those customers feedback cause I found those feedback were blocked for customers comment. I believed it could be modified by sellers. It made me further confuse to shop online via Ali.

    the feedback can't be modified by sellers..but the sellers can ask the buyers to modified the comments....

    I was trying to comment on seller after receipt goods. unfortunately, the feedback column was blocked !

    Anyway, this is a good lesson and experience to get touch with fake brand name shuttlecock!
