Li Ning A60 Li Ning lists the A60 shuttle as a 'training quality' shuttle with a plywood head and goose feathers. I tested a speed 78 in mid autumn. It should be noted that these shuttles ship in an extra long tube, giving you 15 shuttles as against 12. Price paid: £13.29 per tube (15 shuttles) Country sourced: United Kingdom Source of purchase: http://www.directbadminton.co.uk/index.aspx Flight quality: 5/10 While a new shuttle will fly straight, I doubt it'll continue to do so for long as the durability is a big problem with these shuttles. Out of the tube these shuttles were too fast for a 78, and this probably stems from how light they feel overall. That said these shuttles are head heavy; they'll self right quickly because all of the weight seems to be in the cork.The feathers are somewhat flimsy, and probably don't create the necessary resistance or counterbalance required from a high grade shuttle. This means that control at the net is somewhat marred by the shuttle, but it also suffers in the rear court due to improper speed ratings. Durability: 3/10 Argh. As you can see by the photos, this shuttle has very thin feathers. It's evident in games too, because it's a given you'll snap the feathers quickly enough. Compared with their higher range shuttles, the A60 doesn't hold a candle. As it also self rights quite quickly, you can probably expect to catch more of the feathers than you usually would. This combination of factors results in durability being poor. Typically, a shuttle may last up to around 1 game - if you're lucky. If you're playing doubles, expect to go through a few of them. Cork quality: 2/10 Well, at least they're upfront about the cork. It's plywood as it states. What more is there to say on this really? It didn't really have issues with deformation but I'm not sure if that's the cork being better quality than the feathers, or just the feathers breaking before the cork takes a real beating. Overall shuttle quality: 3.3/10 This is marketed as a training shuttle, but I struggle to see how; given how quickly feathers break on these shuttles.. Unless you buy new tubes of shuttles for every session, this isn't viable. It's not even particularly viable for amateurs because again - the durability simply doesn't meet a standard. Overall shuttle value: 3/10 I guess if you play once in a blue moon and don't really care for your shuttles these might be acceptable to buy.. But honestly there are better shuttles available for the money, I'd much sooner recommend the Ashaway 450 Blacks over these for a similar cost - albeit for a few less shuttles. With the rate they break at, these shuttles aren't really anything remotely special.
