    Default Feather Speed Selection help Hi-Qua

    hi guys,

    My Club is planning on changing from plastic to feather, And I decided to buy these shuttle from mybadmintonstore.com

    http://www.mybadmintonstore.com/shop...8#.UsrnYPSnrMg

    Can you tell me what would be the best speed selection, I don't need the fastest, just something close to what the pros play I guess.

    They have the following speeds, I don't know what they mean.

    2/49/76
    3/50/77
    4/51/78
    0/47/74
    1/48/75
    5/52/79

    Thanks

    the lower the number, the slower the speed of the shuttle. Gettin the right speed is very climate dependent. I suggest you ask around at other places to see what speed shuttles they use and test those in your hall. Then use that as a benchmark.

    The club I play is air-conditioned, Temps these days in winter are around 70F

    Humidity is around 55%

    What are the 3 different number? How do you break them down ?

    Thank you

    they are equivalent. different manufacture use different numbering system.

    basically,

    speed 3 = speed 50 = speed 77

    There are three grading systems for shuttle speed.

    0 to 5, 47 to 52, 74 to 79.

    I think 47 to 52 is the weight I.e. 4.7gm, 4.8gm etc.

    74 to 79 is a system using the term 'grains'. Larger number means heavier.

    according to yonex, you use speed 4/51/78 when the temperature is around 70.
