    So I bought 50 tubes of Li-ning super 1000, for me and my friends to share at 18.9€ a tube. We mainly play with RSL or Forza VIP.

    Features:
    Great durability, feels like the shuttle lasts about 1.5x the time RSL or Forza. I will try to make a more scientific approach to test this in the future.

    Great price, For Top Of the Line shuttle 18.9€ a tube is a steal imo.

    Ok feel, lacks the distinct hitting sound of RSL and Forza. Feels more dull in comparison.

    Slow shuttles, we ordered speed 77 and mainly play in around 19-20 C°, testing the shuttle it lands 10cm shorter than its counterparts. So a tip would be to order speed 78, and slow it down since that pereserves the aerodynaics better than making a slow shuttle faster.

    Summary: Great value for a top end shuttle, but does not rival the quality of RSL etc. Buy a higher speed than expected.

    out of curiosity, what kind of RSL shuttles are you comparing to?

    That's interesting and somewhat strange...
    I am mainly using the RSL Classics and in the past, LN shuttles had the tendency to be slightly quicker (tried the GP300, A+60 and A+90; all in speed 77) and rather similar to Yonex speed 3.

    But if they have the durability of ~AS40 for 2/3 of the price, this sounds like a no-brainer;)
