Where To Buy Badminton Shuttlecock

Choosing a right badminton shuttlecock can be a tedious task because of the wide range & types of shuttlecock present in the market. It is really necessary for you to play with a right shuttlecock to improve your game. So, in order to do that, you can refer to our badminton shuttlecock buying guide. This guide will help you in making your decision of buying a perfect shuttlecock for you.

1Q What does the color cap on a shuttlecock indicate Ans. The color cap on the shuttlecock indicates the speed of the shuttle and approx. temperature ranges in which they should be used to play. The green one is slow and the temperature range is 19 - 29 C. The blue one is medium speed and the temperature range is 11 - 21 C. Red is the fastest one and the temperature range is below 14 C.

4Q Do you get different speeds of shuttlecock in badminton Ans. Yes, the speed of the shuttlecock depends on its cap color. Red cap shuttlecock java has the maximum speed and green cap shuttlecocks have the lowest speed.

5Q How are feathers for badminton shuttlecocks obtained Ans. A shuttlecock consists of 16 feathers overlapping each other. Shuttlecock feathers are plucked from the wings of a live goose or duck.

6Q Which badminton shuttlecock is better: Mavis 350 or Mavis 500 Ans. Mavis 500 is the better shuttlecock as compared to Mavis 350. This is because they are more durable. The price of both shuttlecocks is almost similar.

A shuttlecock (also called a birdie or shuttle) is a high-drag projectile used in the sport of badminton. It has an open conical shape formed by feathers or plastic (or a synthetic alternative) embedded into a rounded cork (or rubber) base. The shuttlecock's shape makes it extremely aerodynamically stable. Regardless of initial orientation, it will turn to fly cork first, and remain in the cork-first orientation.

A regulation standard shuttlecock weighs around 4.75 to 5.50 g (0.168 to 0.194 oz). It has 16 feathers with each feather 62 to 70 mm (2.4 to 2.8 in) in length, and the diameter of the cork is 25 to 28 mm (0.98 to 1.10 in).[2] The diameter of the circle that the feathers make is around 58 to 68 mm (2.3 to 2.7 in).[3][4]

A shuttlecock is formed from 16 or so overlapping feathers, usually goose or duck, embedded into a rounded cork base. Feathers are plucked from the wings of a live goose or duck, a method which has been deemed cruel by animal rights activists in recent years.[5] The cork is covered with thin leather.[6] To ensure satisfactory flight properties, it is considered preferable to use feathers from right or left wings only in each shuttlecock, and not mix feathers from different wings, as the feathers from different wings are shaped differently. Badminton companies make shuttlecock corks by sandwiching polyurethane between corks and/or using a whole piece of natural cork. With the first method, the cork becomes misshaped after use, while the cork in the latter method changes very little after use. This is because the structure of the shuttlecock is more durable when made with a single piece of natural cork.[7][8]

The feathers are brittle; shuttlecocks break easily and often need to be replaced several times during a game. For this reason, synthetic shuttlecocks have been developed that replace the feathers with a plastic skirt. Players often refer to synthetic shuttlecocks as plastics and feathered shuttlecocks as feathers'.Feather shuttles need to be properly humidified for at least 4 hours prior to play in order to fly the correct distance at the proper speed and to last longer. Properly humidified feathers flex during play, enhancing the shuttle's speed change and durability. Dry feathers are brittle and break easily, causing the shuttle to wobble. Saturated feathers are 'mushy', making the feather cone narrow too much when strongly hit, which causes the shuttle to fly overly far and fast. Typically a humidification box is used, or a small moist sponge is inserted in t
