    I noticed this Aeroplane speed chart a few years ago, and I am not sure what do you mean by "official". The web site is official and the speed chart may not be. Since then I tried to find the correct answer and this web site is the only one that stated 49=77, all others are 49=76.

    I have played Aeroplane 50 and 51 regularly and still playing those 50 from shuttlecock101. I also played many top grade like Victor Champion NO1, RSL Classic or No1, Chaopai Red all at speed 77, as well as other brand at speed 78. Based on my experience, at the same gym and same season/temperature, Aeroplane 50 is more like speed 77 and 51 is close to 78. So personally I believe the following web page is more accurate than wrong

    The following table, which obtained from their website, clearly stated that 49 is speed 77 and 50 is speed 78.


    速度(Speed); 重量(Weight); 合适的环境(Proper Environment)
    76 (Slow); 48 (Light); (Hot) >27
    77 中速(Moderate); 49 适中(Moderate); (Warm) 18-27
    78 中速(Moderate); 50 适中(Moderate); (Cool) 8-17
    79 (Fast); 51 (Heavy); (Cold) <8


    Every factory has their own standard of marking the speed of their products.

    In my experience and some online research, the speed of the shuttle will affected by the temperature inside the gym, the altitude of the place and the humidity inside the gym.

    The higher the temp, you may want to use a slower speed shuttle;
    The higher the altitude, you may want to use a slower speed shuttle;
    The higher the humidity, you may want to use a faster speed shuttle.

    As you may see, there is no clean cut on which speed to choose, when the location of the gym is the only known factor.

    I agree with "taneepak" that you should give it a test. However, do not be surprised to see that there might not be much of a difference between 49 and 50 of Aeroplane shuttles when you test the 49 in a warmer day that is a little dry and the 50 in a cooler day that is a little humid.

    My 2 cents.

    Default Aeroplane EG 1130

    Gentlemen,

    Thank you for more of the insights. Yes, it does comes down to the control enviroment of your badminton hall. Unfortunately, we do not have a local retailer that carried the shuttles so I have ordered 1 each of the 49 & 50 from shuttlecock101 and we will see how the shuttles fared in the place I played.
    Once again, thanks for the info.

    I contacted the Aeroplane factory about the speed and the email reply told me that they stand by the speed chart on their site.

    That is 49 for speed 77, 50 for speed 78 and 51 for speed 79.

    Again, test it out is the best way to make sure it fits your own need.
    Just remember to take into account the gym environment when testing.

    The speed 49,50 or 51 is the weight in Grams, 4.9g, 5.0g or 5.1g, and 76, 77 or 78 is in Grains, the conversion between these two unit is 1g = 15.43 Grains, so

    4.9g = 75.6 grains
    5.0g = 77.2 grains
    5.1g = 78.7 grains

    khmaiboi92, interested in Aeroplane EG1130? I'm still looking for buyers for about 15 tubes of my next carton order. You don't have to buy them all of course, but every bit counts.

    I'd mail em. Simple as that. Won't be expensive either, maybe a dollar or less per tube, depending on how many you buy.

    Or you can buy them from me ^_^ i don't mind shipping overseas, I'll even wrap in bubble wrap when I put them in the box.

    Very good deal, I promise, and the shipping won't be a lot. I'll pay with my own money to make sure it won't be expensive per tube.

    Dont'mind where I buy from. Tested Aeroplane black recently, speed 78. They were way too slow so I need equivalent to speed 79.

    Are they available in UK?

    Aeroplane's speed 49 is speed 76 and their speed 50 is speed 77. Therefore speed 50 will be too slow for the UK.

    As far as I know, speed 79/51 is not very common, that may require a bit of digging. There has been some contention over what the 76/77/78 grade is vs the 49/50/51. The last tube I bought was speed 50, and it was the right speed, so I ordered 78, which shuttlecock101 claims to be equivalent to 50, and I figured it would be easier to slow the shuttle rather than speed it up.

    I bought 25 dozen of RSL Tourney 1 from someone on eBay called 'iooho'. He has sold thousands of them and I was more than happy with the ones I received. He charged me 274 for the 25 dozen which included delivery. Ended up paying 24 in Excise Duty but even still, it was a saving of around 80 from ordering here in the UK.

    Well... I don't think it's hard to defind which is 49 or 50. just get a good scale and weight it. if the shuttlecock is 4.9grm. that mean it's 49. if 50 it will be 5.0 gram. The Shuttle will be faster when it's heavier. Collect me if i am wrong
