    one tube of of half-dozen mavis 2000 is about SGD$16.50 (we purchase in bulk), while a tube of dozen feathers is about $25 - 40. Per shuttle is about the same, but mavis can last at least 20 semi-core matches while a feather can last about 3-4 semi-core matches. smasher and slicer are the killer of shuttles.

    mavis 2000 follow feather quite closely in terms of flight pattern (as in the dropping angle & timing). mavis 500 is far too slow in dropping angle and fast in timing.

    anyway, just buy a tube to try...

    Cool Mybe the solution will be close!

    The development of the upcomming Winex Nanofly Synthetic shuttlecock
    that is advetized to be "Just like real feather shuttlecocks" by the Winex company
    Might be the solution for saving Goose birds, last longer and still be playable


    I have played the first of the last in the development stages, read what I think here!

    only with feather can you truly learn the finer art and skill of badminton; the intricasies of timing of the strike and shots such as slices, tumbling net shots, fast drops cannot be learned with nylon
    Well said advice. Additionally, don't forget to source your way to used feather shuttlecocks if you have alot of friends (eventually) who plays badminton. (hint: make friends with next court players.... ) Some high level players discard their shuttlecocks which are still fairly sufficient for beginners to play with.

    Then again, no harm in buying 1 or 2 nylon shuttlecocks to try them out yourself. Since you're just 4months into this lovely & addictive sport, i reckon you can keep one in your bag as a last resort spare, or simply a dependable birdie to practice your stroke timings. Practice clearing from base to base and maintain hitting from your racket's sweet spot each and every time.

    Nothing beats satisfying your curiosity by yourself. Once you have, and begin to appreciate intricacies of the fine feathers, i can safely say you have progressed up another level

    you're welcome. last nylon i used was over 10 years ago. i suggest you shouldn't put too much focus with which particular nylon that you're gonna get. Just try to get some loose ones from a good sport shop and hopefully you don't need to buy a tube.

    I have tested the mavis 2000 and it's too quick, a feather shuttle is mutch slower.
    For comparision; I most of the time use Diamond Mars Blue (and orange) and sometimes first pro.
    If I have to use nylon (for some tournaments) I prefere mavis 300 (and I'm lucky that's the most common used one in Belgium)

    Mavis300 are probably the best nylons. They feel semi-decent when fresh.
    But in a game with hard hitters i find that nylon actually doesn't last as long. The center ring gets crumpled so fast.

    Mavis 500 > Mavis 300.

    500 has better flight, better stability and better durability if you ask me. Ofcourse it is still different then feather shuttles (Mainly slice dropping is very hard with nylon) but I think for the rest it comes pretty close.
