    Hello,
    Can anyone tell me which is the "best" nylon bird and which is the most similar to feather bird? I'd heard that it is not suitable, is it right? what is the difference?
    Thanks a lot.

    I think the one made my Victor is okay, but I usually don't use nylon shuttles. Cheap ones go too fast and don't spin well, and the "feel" is all wrong.

    What's so special about the 370? I know 300s are bullets, 350s are a plastic equivalent of feather, but still not quite the same.

    Differences between M 300, 350, 370

    Can someone describe specifically the differences betwee the three Yonex nylon shuttles? I have used primarily the Mavis 300, but briefly used the Mavis 350 and did not notice much difference.

    300 are bullets, very fast and very hard to control.
    350 are slower and resemble true feathers, but not quite.
    370, I have no idea. I've never even heard of them.

    370 is somewhat like 350 except it is more stable still and the flight characteristic is even closer to feather compared to 350.

    Pete, is that from Yonex marketing materials or from your own personal experience? If the latter, are the 370's worth the extra buck or two per half dozen over the 300 shuttles?
