Should there be a sticky for these [steaming and tipping feather shuttles] topics? A lot of people, especially newer players who have only played with nylons before are not familiar with these aspects of playing with feather birdies, though it is common knowledge for everyone else. I know when i first transitioned from nylons to feathers, i had no idea what tipping meant and was given so many (shudder) "you noob" stares at my local tournament. I dont think i can write a comprehensive enough article to introduce these concepts to newbies. Kwun? Your thoughts?
