Slow Mavis 370 vs. Middle Mavis 300
Since middle-speed Mavis 300 are the most commonly used plastic shuttlecocks over here... I was wondering how it compares to a slow-speed 370. (In terms of speed and durability)
Any ideas? Thanks!

I have used the medium speed Mavis 370, and it is by far the best plastic shuttle i've EVER used!

IMO, slow speed 370 is closer to feather speed. Very durable. I can't compare with 300 since they are supplied by school and get abused a lot, while I use my own 370 and naturally last longer.

Medium speed 300's fly pretty fast, with more of a parabolic/projectile motion compared to a parachuting motion of a feather (i.e. diagonally up and then near vertical downward motion).
The 370's flight is quite close to a feather, but I've only used the medium speed ones, so can't comment on the slow speed.
Durability wise, the 370 edges it. The 300 skirts can get deformed quite easily, resulting in a spinning shuttle. However, the 300s can still last around 2-4 games of mens doubles before the skirt starts tearing. the 370's probably last around a game more as a minimum.

I think the reason why yonex sells more Mavis 300's is because it's good value for money(a.k.a. cheap and cheerful ) and widely available, even in chain stores?

Per dozen 300's (or 370's) we tend to throw 8 or 9 in the bin due to skirts splitting and 3 or 4 away due to head seperation. Still a couple of dozen Mavis tend to last about 60 playing hours where in a competition your looking at a Dozen Feathers in 4 hours.

the 300's doesnt have that.
yes, the 370 does have more plastic in the central area but outer tips break fast. So, it depend on individual view on durability.

I agree that the 300's are less durable but they have a nicer feeling upon impact. The 350's and 370's do react a lot like feather but the feeling is just not there.
We usually use 350's to practise offensive plays. The reason is because they don't fly as fast as the 300's, so you can't just power your way through, or at least not as easily.
The 300's are good when you want to practise your defense and reaction as they're a bit quicker so you'll have to be on your toes a bit more.
