  1. which shuttlecock to buy? plastic or feather?

    • Hi Nishant,

      Plastic or feather shuttlecocks? There are several reasons to which type of shuttlecocks you should be using.
      If you want more durable shuttlecocks, plastic ones will be first choice. Plastic shuttlecocks would mean that lower racket string tension is preferred to lengthen string durability too. This would compromise the hitting/smashing feel to some experienced players.
      Feather shuttlecocks does not last that long as they are made from natural feathers, however, if you go for higher end feather shuttlecocks, they might last longer. This also depends on the usage of the shuttlecocks.
      Frequent smashers would shorten the lifespan of feather shuttlecocks.

      At the end of the day, it depends on what you can afford to buy and how you would want to feel hitting a shuttlecocks.

      Hope this explains!

      – Team
