    Default Comparison of the Yonex Mavis 300 and the Yonex Mavis 370

    What are the main differences between the Mavis 300 and Mavis 370 in terms of durability, flight path and quality of play? What shuttle is most similar to a feather shuttle? Any ideas?

    any difference will be so small. If u want closest to feather, just go to feather. Close to feather has broad interpretation. Even feathers feel different between brands and grades. I went for the Mavis 300

    In Canada, I notice that we usually use yellow Mavis 300 if we play with synthetics.

    red , blue and green are color code for speed, not quality.
    where i live, green (slow) is still not slow enough
    blue is about right for toronto

    I bought 4 doz Mavis 370 and found that the shuttle has a tendancy to wobble a small bit mid-flight. Theyre being returned for exchange with 300s as soon as possible! Anyone else found this or did I get a bad few boxes?

    Nylon shuttles do wobble more than feathers. Shuttles are tested for rotational speed. Only reputable feathers can rotate at 350 to 500 revolutions per minute; nylon can only dream about it. In a nylon shuttle there are no more than 100 strands of plastic; in feathers, you will find at least 10,000 minute strands of strands of extremely tough protein fiber (keratin) in just one feather. And there are 16 feathers in a feather shuttle.

    I didn't get that yesterday when I tried a tube of Mavis 370s. A friend who was playing on the next court recommended I try some. They were alright; in my opinion, the best synthetic shuttle there is but nowhere near as good as even cheap feather shuttles.

    @ taneepak: I noticed the difference in rotational speed from my normal choice of feather shuttle. You could tell when you tried to slice the shuttle; the speed difference just wasn't there.

    wow that is a lot of shuttles....

    I have had a tube of 6 Mavis 500's last me 3 months =) very happy....

    Though I conceed that the feathers feel better, the good quality nylons give you great game play. I play at 3 clubs and for one of them we voted to play with nylons... we have saved alot of money and had a lot of fun... Simply they fly straighter for longer... way way longer...
