    I'm not sure, but im guessing the quality and design. It may also involve the flight of the shuttle. Maybe the higher the number, the closer the shuttle is to an actual feather bird.

    mavis 350 according to reviews, is the closest nylon bird that resembles the flight of a feather shuttle. but you should also take into consideration the cap of the tube. blue for normal condition. red for cold condition. and green for warm condition. you can also try the mavis 500.

    It's yonex's "value" shuttle. It doesn't even use cork for the base... plastic i think.

    They should probably just use mavis 300s... they only cost slightly more (ok 40% more--but more durable!) If the school wanted to be cheap, they can buy cheap shuttles of other brands.

    I've been using both 300 and 350 these days. The difference is mainly the little horizontal plastic piece (sorry, don't know how to call them) to connect verticle big pieces. The shape is a little bit different. I was told it will provide more durability, as well as closer to feather's flying pattern.

    After I tried both, I think the durability is about the same, since most of the time, it's the cork falling off before the plastic skirt getting messed up. But, yeah, 350 seems got a little bit more consistent in flying pattern.

    Overall, since 300 and 350's cost only different by less than $1 in US market, I don't see too much difference between these 2. Both are good, durable ones to practice with.

    However, Yonex stuff are generally more expensive compare to the rest. You can try HiQua Hummingbird (med or slow, see which speed u prefer). It's good and cheap. Under promotion, u can get 3 tubes for $12, compare to Yonex generally $8+ per tube. www.hiquasports.com

    The concept sounded great at first... but the excitment's not all there anymore. Too bad it's as heavy as the other nylons. If they could only make it as light as real feathers... that would really be something. If the quills can be bought easily and don't cost much more than onther nylons (maybe up to $18 a dozen) then i think it'll do well but from what others have said about it so far... it just doesn't seem that "revolutionary."
