    And the As-50 arn't that more durable than other. And i think it's because of the fact that we bought the As-50 on internet and we have no clue about the years they were produced. And like every animal it get old. Do you guy think the steam can restore a old shuttle.
    Properly steam the shuttles can definitely help the durability. Perfer to do it 48-72 hours prior to the usage.

    Since you got it from the internet, was it from overseas? If so, chances are you obtained the incorrect speed shuttle which can reduce the the shuttle's life.

    In fact, which speed shuttle is your AS-50?

    Get speed 4, which is used for Canada and US. Canada sometimes uses speed 5 in the winter if cold enough as speed 4 would eventually fly too fast.

    Uh, I think your numbers and ours (U.S.) are reversed. 0 for us = slowest, 5 = fastest. We in SoCal usually use a 3. Sometimes 4 in the cold winter.

    No mix up. Calgary requires speed 0 and 1.

    http://www.shuttlecock.com/Resources...speed_info.php <-- according to this, this seems mostly correct, depending on where you are and how the climate is.

    Speed 4 for Canada which we use here. At the VRC, I heard they sometimes switch to Speed 5.

    Actually Cooler, for Yonex F-XX seroes shuttles, apparently they make speeds 0 through 7 which is quite interesting.

    But aren't those the slowest shuttles? I thought in the cold GWN you need faster shuttles.

    Calgary is very high up the Rocky. The air is thinner.

    "Ahhhhhhhhhh! I see said the blind man!" Errrr...panda in this case. That makes sense. Cold but minimal air resistance.

    well, i guess it's cold for u, for us, it's still warm indoor.
    It has to be speed 0 or slower. Any faster, yonex has to sell it at
    give away prices here (which they have done before due to wrong shipment or wrong order)

    You can give the wrong size for me cooler! heheheh

    Yeah, Victor had to sell shuttles at cheap prices at the local store I went to one time because they accidently brought like a 77 in (opps). Definately I've seen 77 and 76 fly too fast here. Once a while it's halarious because it becomes a bit unrealistic.
