Which shuttle should you choose for your badminton game?
Are you aware of the different shuttle speeds? Do you know the difference between the shuttle speed numbers 74 and 79? And what does altitude have to do with the speed of your shuttlecock?
(out of interest, do you refer to the shuttlecock as 1) shuttle 2) ball 3) birdie 4) shuttlecock 5) plastic ball 6) feather birdie or 7) something entirely different. Please use the comment box below to let us know)
This breakdown relates to the feathered shuttlecock – not the synthetic shuttles.
This article will give you the details you need to know in order to make better decisions about badminton shuttles (feather birdies) and speeds.
