    Default What Shuttle speed do you use?

    Just out of curiosity, I was wondering what shuttle speeds are used in specific locales around the world (like Beijing, Jakarta, KL, Tokyo, HK, London, Edinburgh, Paris, Copenhagen, Sidney, Munich, Warsaw, etc.).

    Maybe members could give the speed they use at home.

    Thanks.

    It's surprising until I checked my globe and see that Melbourne is at the same latitude as San Francisco! Having lived there many years, I know it can get quite cool.

    Thanks. We use the same speed here. I have the impression, though, that HK uses 76 speed. I bought a dozen tubes of 76 shuttles from there and the sender said that was the speed they used. I wonder if someone knows whether it is really that different there from Singapore or other coastal cities.

    77 is too slow in WA. The correct speed used should be 78 because the climate is close to BC, Canada which also uses 78.

    Thanks. I'll be sure to ask WA state tournament organizers to up their birdie speeds.

    I don't know about the numbers quoted here but in Jamaica and the rest of the Caribbean, green banded shuttles are the standard here. Basically the slowest speed available.

    Surely there are some differences accordingly to altitude and latitude. For instance, 5g in equator may not be 5g in Northern hemisphere.
