Over several month, I discovered that various people here have the same issue like me which was named in different threads. @s_mair, @Rob3rt @Charlie-SWUK I don't know who of the BC members came across the problem to play with too slow shuttles all the time or very often. In my club it is an established method to bend the feathers and ignore the speed test. We all know the rules for choosing the correct speed. Taken from the Laws of Badminton: Spoiler TESTING A SHUTTLE FOR SPEED 3.1 To test a shuttle, a player shall use a full underhand stroke which makes contact with the shuttle over the back boundary line. The shuttle shall be hit at an upward angle and in a direction parallel to the side lines. 3.2 A shuttle of correct speed will land not less than 530 mm and not more than 990 mm short of the other back boundary line as in Diagram B. DIAGRAM B Never the less, I heard from several members, which play at different club in Germany, that this test and rule get ignored. We don't want to discuss about the rules in gerneral, the sense etc. I just want to share my experiences and want to hear your experience and entertaining stories of strange people. Here are some quotes from some guys in a hijacked thread and this is the reason why I started this thread because this problem is experienced by many players. Full conversation: Spoiler So let us talk about this disturbing issue, share stories, experiences and how to fix badminton idiots.
