    Hi all,

    I ordered 5 tubes of 300B from Badmintonalley but I forgot to specify the speed of the shuttle. Now I have 5 tubes of speed 76. I'm wondering if I should exchange it for speed 77? Is 76 considered too slow?
    I live around Riverside and San Gabriel.

    Thanks

    For USA clients, we usually recommend 77 and 78 speed, 76 is a little slow in USA

    Thanks for the reply. I just called Badmintonalley and the lady told me Yang Yang 300B speed 76 equals to speed 77. Can anyone confirm this?

    I had a tube of Yang Yang 99 speed 78 and the length differences comparing to the 300B is about 20-25cm apart, serving to the end of the court with front-hand serving.

    Can't confirm the seller's comments, but from your test, the difference indicates it's one speed lower. So the 300B in 76 is equivalent to YY 99 speed 77. You should test whether the speed is correct for your hall using the two speed markers (if present) on the sidelines of the badminton court.

    In Summer season 76 could be best, and the rest 77 is the main birdie
