Coxel Aerolite shuttles

I use Coxel shuttle regularly at the moment since it is cost effective. The court where I play is not that high and this shuttle fits in for the court for the flight of the shuttle. Shuttle will hit the roof for a very high serve or a high clear at the court where I play. Picture of the shuttle barrel is shown below:

Shuttle quality varies from barrel to barrel and also within a barrel. Some of the shuttles are a bit fast. Found these shuttles to be slightly more lasting than some of the other brands in same price range. Will try using other brands post my thoughts on those brands as well. Pictures of Coxel shuttles are shown below:

Yonex Voltric 80

Yonex Voltric 80 is my favourite racket. It is a 4U. Currently I am having grey Nanogy 95 (shown in photograph) guts on it at 26 Lbs. This racket is very good for smashes. Durability of this guts is good.
Initially I had white BG 66 Ultimax gut at 28lbs on this racket, which did not last for more than 2 weeks. 28lbs was not comfortable for me since the retention was less.
Had couple of hard clashes while playing doubles and nothing happenned to the racket. Paint coating had gone off in couple of places because of the clash.
Once the currenty Nanogy 95 breaks, I will change the guts to BG 66 Ultimax at 25 lbs to get some more retention power.
