    the lower the number, the slower the speed of the shuttle. Gettin the right speed is very climate dependent. I suggest you ask around at other places to see what speed shuttles they use and test those in your hall. Then use that as a benchmark.

    The club I play is air-conditioned, Temps these days in winter are around 70F

    Humidity is around 55%

    What are the 3 different number? How do you break them down ?

    Thank you

    they are equivalent. different manufacture use different numbering system.

    basically,

    speed 3 = speed 50 = speed 77
