Thread: Mavis 2000 Review

To improve the mavis, yonex has to do some major modification, like newer stiffer plastic or carbon fiber impregnation. Reshaping the same old skirt does very little. My belief is that mavis 2000 will be slightly less durable than mavis 300.

I think Kwuns analysis is spot on. There is a crispness you feel when you strike a feather shuttle, and theres a dull rubbery feeling when you strike a plastic. Flight path and trajectory were close 85-90%, but initial speed off the racket seems fast, and the skirt slows it down afterwards. I doubt ill be doing more "testing" these are probably going to be for hard smash practice, where feathers will get shredded fast, or if i come across new players who's technique isnt worth a feather shuttle.
The real issue with plastics is the rigidity of the skirt. A good synthetic will really replicate a feather shuttle, but I think the difficulty will be in finding a good material for the vanes. If you choose something soft, you'll get a product like what we have. If you choose something more firm, you will produce a shuttle that is "synthetic" however it will be brittle and break just like a feather, thus defeating purpose of the syntheticness. catch 22 indeed. I think the purpose and goals of produceing a synthetic needs to be address to either a high quality renewable low cost shuttle, (which is asking a lot) or a durable shuttle, which is what we have.

500 was great but in very short supply.
Pick some up Cooler, and bat it around... let us know what you think.
I think you get the above quoted affect.
I firmly believe that with all the advances, and current available technology, and material they should be able to produce a nylon shuttle that play exactly like a high quality feather shuttle.
Its just the economics of doing that, which is stopping manufacturers from doing so.
Ah well, at least it is as close to feather as you can get.
Thanks everyone for your testing & input... I had been curious how they perform.

I got mine from shuttle-house a few weeks ago. I think they're better than other plastics that I've used, but I'd agree that they're still nowhere near as nice as feathers. The sound and the feel aren't as nice.. they definitely decelerate faster than other plastics I've used though.

Does this shuttle really offer enough improvement over the past iterations, such as the 350 and 500 to make it more viable? I question the use of plastic in producing synthetic shuttles. It seems like there would be some better material. At least the cork's real?...unlike the synthetic ones of HL shuttles that have screws in them... >.>

M2000 in UK?
Our school/club is returning next week after the schoolkids' Easter holiday (two weeks of rust to shake off) and I'd like to fetch some 2000's to try out, as we're close to the end of our supply of 300's - anybody in the UK who can chuck me a tube or two? Please PM if so.

I have actually find out Mavis 2000 is more durable than either Mavis 350/300
I bought a tube of Mavis 2000 today, and played it for some time. In a 15 min playing around, skirts of Mavis 350/300 usually starting breaking, but Mavis 2000 just show no sign of breaking. So I think Mavis 2000 is actually better for just 2 bucks more than Mavis 350.
