    Default Which Nylon Shuttle cocks gives the closest Feather feel?

    I want to buy nylon shuttles for my club,

    We use to play with feather shuttles but we ran out of the budget now every one want to change for Nylon (For sure!)

    but which one would give us the closest feel to playing with feather?

    Please tell me the speed to choose as well.

    Yonex Mavis 2000 is the only one closest to feel and flight. But even then that's a long ways off from feather. Get the right speed according to your ambient temperature.

    That should be the Yonex Mavis 2000 (GREEN CAP) ... for temp between 22 - 33 deg C.

    http://yonex.com/sports/badminton/pr...ks/mavis-2000/ (look under product technology and sub-sction playing conditions)

    If you cannot find it locally and are really interested, I can sell you a brand new tube that I have got (at my purchase cost (RM59.90 - the price sticker is still there ) + postage from Malaysia) - no profit whatsoever. But do check out other websites, I believe you can get it cheaper (around USD16 per tube)

    I have moved from Yonex Mavis 2000 to Aerosensa 30/40 ...

    In Malaysia, nylon birds are "expensive" relative to feathers ... weird world isn't it ?

    I used them initially when my son was starting to learn how to play ... too many mishits etc .... so "cheaper and more durable" then, luckily he picked up the strokes and techniques pretty fast, so now, we are on 100% feathers ...

    i was going to say that 15-16USD a tube is insanely high...but now are you guys buying the tube with 6 shuttles cos that's the only size that comes in here in the states. if it is, then that's still really really high!!

    Default Nylon vs, feathers like apples and oranges

    I have played at places where they have not used feathers for years. Since I am an archer this is normal because nylon vanes replaced natural feathers long ago.

    If you compare a feather the drag on the goose or duck feather is far greater than the drag on nylon vanes. The flight of a nylon shuttle is different. Just learn to use nylon shuttles and you have shuttles with a uniform speed, drop rate, and they last 5-10 longer than feathers.

    If you want the speed of a feather while using nylon use the slow or green shuttles. Yes I agree that the best nylon shuttles are Yonex 2000 but the slow speed ones are not available from a retailer in the U.S. These are available in the U.K. where they sell for 12-14 pounds per dozen.

    Now that the price of good nylon shuttles is near the price of good feather shuttles I expect a substitution of nylon for feathers around the world.

    A world of plastic only shuttles? Your utopia sounds like hell.

    What we need to do is create mutant geese with stronger feathers.

    As long as it is JUST AS GOOD and CHEAPER than the current Aerosensa 50 - "souped-up" goose/geese gets my vote !!

    I have the blue Mavis 2000 as this is the only ones I could find here and they are too fast for normal playing condition. Unless you can find the green ones, you are better with the standard Mavis 350.

    But yeah the price is pretty high here in Canada too: 2000 were at $17 and the 350 are at $15...
