December 2, 2019: After testing the new released DS-50 (our 1st batch), our staff and friends highly recommend this shuttlecock for their durability, flight, and, price. We feel the performance of DS-50 is much better than Yonex Aerosensa 30 in 3 areas mentioned before; Overall, it is quite close to Aerosensa 50. We highly recommend our customers who are looking for quality shuttlecock to try the DS-50. It is Badminton Alley Staff's BEST pick.
DuraSmash is a new brand that is entering the shuttlecock business. The DuraSmash Master DS-50 is a select premium goose feather shuttlecock that offers excellent durability, flight, consistency, and speed. It is targeted to compete with Yonex Aerosensa 40 (AS40) and Aerosensa 50 (AS50).
To prolong the durability of the shuttlecocks, we highly recommend that all shuttlecocks be humidified 24-48 hours before usage. This will help increase the life/durability of the shuttlecock by up to 70%.
