A Standard Shuttle
- Feathered shuttle are brittle and
more prone to damage. It need to be replaced several times during a
game. That's why shuttles made of synthetic materials like plastic
are frequently used these days. But feathered shuttlecocks can be
controlled easily so experienced players prefer feathered shuttle
over plastic ones.
- Plastic shuttles are very durable
and last many matches without any impairment to the flight. Plastic
shuttles can be hit hardly.
A standard shuttle is made by following the guidelines given by
International Badminton Federation.
- The feathers shall have a uniform length between 62mm to
70mm, when measured from tip to the bottom. The feathers shall
be firmly fastened with thread or any suitable material.
- The tip of feathers should lie on a circle of diameter
between 58mm to 68mm.
- The shuttle shall weight from 4.74gm to 5.50gm.
The best Badminton Shuttlecocks are made from feathers from the
left wing of a goose.
