SHUTTLES SUNFLEX FEATHER 78 x 12 (Quite Fast)

Here's some info...

Did you notice that some shuttles feel light and are able to fly very far; whereas some other shuttles seem heavy and can hardly fly?

In badminton, we refer to this as the shuttle speed.

  • A fast shuttle speed means the shuttle can travel a relatively long distance
  • A slow shuttle speed means the shuttle is unlikely to fly far

If you buy shuttles that fly too far (even with soft hits), take note that this is NOT the manufacturer’s fault for providing “lousy” shuttles. This simply means you have chosen the wrong shuttle speed.

Shuttle Speed

The speed of a shuttle will be affected by TEMPERATURE, ALTITUDE, and HUMIDITY. A shuttlecock that flies perfectly well in Australia does not necessarily fly well in Thailand.

TEMPERATURE:

 

Hot weather Speed of the shuttle will be faster.
Cold weather Speed of the shuttle will be slower

ALTITUDE:

Higher grounds Speed of the shuttle will be faster
Lower grounds Speed of the shuttle will be slower

The speed of the shuttlecock is classified into different categories (ranges from 75 to 79). Usually there will be a white and round sticker at the bottom of the shuttlecock tube indicating the shuttle speed.

Picture (coming soon)… Just flip your tube over and you’ll see it!

What shuttle speed to choose?

Shuttle Speed Meaning When to use these shuttles?
75 Slow use in very hot countries above sea level
76 Quite Slow use in hot countries above sea level
77 Moderate Speed use in countries AT sea level with perfectly fine temperature
78 Quite Fast use in cold countries below sea level
79 Fast use in very cold countries below sea level

The above is merely a guide. You should choose the shuttle speed that suits your needs.
