    Title says; are Chinese brand plastic birdies worth it? My family is visiting from China, and apparently they say they can get birdies made in China dirt cheap. Any brands/type of Chinese birdies that are good - such as vs. Yonex 2000, or should I just buy Yonex 2000?

    I would be surprised if any cheap Chinese branded plastics would be pleasant to play with.

    Only some Yonex and Bird 2 are usable in my experience.

    Some of the Carlton, Victor and Forza plastics are truly dreadful, so if you need to play with plastics I think I would stick to those two above.
