They are so lightweight, that you can hit as hard as you can and barely get em over the net. Most useless shuttlecocks I have ever seen. I can make better shuttlecocks in my basement.

Not exactly the shuttlecocks you remember as a kid
These shutttlecocks are very very light weight, too light weight. They are nothing like the ones I remember as a child that were made of hard plastic with a heavy rubber end that could be unscrewed and replaced when they wore out. When my children try to play with them they have to hit them as hard as they can to get them to go over the net making it very difficult for them to play with. They just dont weigh enough to travel very far, and if there is even the slightest breeze, forget it. It isnt even worth trying to play with them.

Don't waste your hard earned money
These shuttlecocks did not last for even one game. They were too light and fell apart. Previous shuttlecocks purchased at Dicks were far superior to these.

Not very impressed
Spend the extra money and get the better shuttlecocks. These do not fly nor respond to the rackets like other shuttlecocks.

Perfect for our outdoor games!

No bang for the buck.
I bought these a few days after buying a badminton net. These birdies didn't fly well and if there was a slight wind, forget it. The foam tip is too light to serve and make it over the net. I recommend making these with rubber tips.

Real nice plastic birdies!!
I play a lot of badminton in the back yard and usually use the feathered cork birdies because most plastic birdies wobble too much in flight. Not so with these plastic birdies. These fly real well in a moderate wind, and have minimal wobble. For [$] for 6 birds you cant go wrong.

I bought these for recreational play. I went through all six in the first hour of play. STAY AWAY!

Not enough weight on the shuttlecock
I would not recommend this product not even for beginners.
