    Hi everyone.

    I'm contemplating starting my own brand of shuttlecocks. I was hoping to get some data from the community to help me with this, so if players, especially club organizers in the US could spare a couple of moments to answer my questions, it would greatly help me out and I would be forever appreciative of it.

    Does your club provide shuttles or do players bring their own?
    How much do you spend for a tube of shuttles?
    Are you buying individually or in bulk?
    Which make/model do you use?

    Thanks so much!

    We use medium high quality ones like HangYu #1 (dark green label) for around $21 cad per tube of 12 shuttles when purchased in bulk ie box of 25 tubes.

    Our club is heavily Chinese based so we're able to get tubes of the Lining A+ 60 77 for like $12 a tube (including shipping) when we buy in bulk. They have a sale every year and we buy all our birds then.

    Many people have done this before. The margins are not good and I suppose you are very dependent on the factory’s goodwill. Good luck.
