Thread: shuttles used in Australia
01-11-2008, 09:17 PM #52
Hey guys, I am from Malaysia and will be heading to Adelaide for my foundation in engineering. If i bring shuttle from Malaysia, will the speed be the same in Australia. For you information, the current speed that we are playing in Malaysia will be between 77 and 78. What is the shuttle speed that is used in Adelaide?? Any player willing to play a couple of shot with me??

in Australia most people play with 79/80. I don't mind 78 either

I just played in CBA tournament last weekend, they used RSL official, speed 79. Apart from 79 being much faster than any shuttlecocks i've used in australia they were also very poor in durability. Considering in singles games we don't do any heavy smashing and very little mis-hits to the shuttle, an average singles game to 15 broke 3 shuttles, thats quite shocking. Speed 79 was so fast i could clear from baseline to 3m outside the court without even trying too hard , which was great when i played doubles... I've used RSL classic before, they were fairly good, normally lasted around a game of doubles, and yonex AS-50 depending on the players could last well over 2 games of doubles (they normally only break due to mis hits).

hmmm.. 79. it's not the right speed to use i guess. Right speed is depending on the temperatures of the area.
Speed 76 is for 26 - 30 c
Speed 77 is for 20 - 26 c
Speed 78 is for 14 - 20 c
Speed 79 is for 9 - 14 c
But remember, badminton is a interior activity, I don't think much of the interior in Australia will below 10 c.

Just finished reading the whole post Ok, Here is something you may already known but it's just for someone who not sure about it. Please let me know if I am wrong.
(Speed 1 - 5) Japan Standard
(Speed 49-52) US Standard (Base on the weight of the shuttlecocks)
(Speed 71-81) US/Euro Standard
Sorry there was a mistake in the pervious post, but following is the corret one, for more information, please refer to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Badminton#Shuttlecock
1、Speed/Temp(C)，76 / (37<>28); 77 / (27<>18); 78 / (18<>9); 79 / (9<>1).
2、Weight(US)/Speed(Euro)/Number(JP)，4.9/76/1 #; 5.0/77/2 #; 5.1/78/3 #; 5.2/79/4 #; 5.3/80/5 #
If you using the right speed could make your bird last for a long time.
Hope this info will be helpful and please correct me if I am wrong .

Everyone here in my area uses the Green Aeroplane or sometimes Hi-Qua shuttles.

The shuttlecock speed at my club is either 78 or 79. I find 77 too show in Australia and IMO 78 is the best speed for Melbourne but it may be different for other cities in Australia.

anyone here from Perth would reccomened where to get a cheap RSL tourney 1 or RSL classic from ??? and would u guys be able to tell me how much on avg u guys spend for those shutlle

I wouldn't buy RSL shuttles from Australia because it is too expensive here. Buying from oversea online shops can save you $10 per tube for RSL classic.
