Nylon badminton shuttlecocks from both Victor and Yonex can be used for competition games and training. Nylon shuttles have the advantage that they last a very long time compared to a feather shuttle.
Price & Durable
A nylon shuttle is made from a certain type of plastic. The big advantage of this is the durability, which means that a shuttle lasts much longer in competition or training. Moreover, it is much cheaper to produce such a shuttle, which makes it much cheaper. The perfect shuttle for beginners or for players who do not yet have 100% control of the technique.
What is disadvantageous about a nylon shuttle?
First, a nylon shuttle has much less shock absorption, so vibrations have a much greater effect on strokes.
Second, the flight of a nylon shuttle is many times faster compared to a feather shuttle. In addition, a feather shuttle brakes at the last moment and this is not the case with a nylon shuttle. This makes steering the shuttle much more difficult and makes it more difficult to perform advanced strokes.
This is also the reason that feather shuttles are used at higher levels, because they have to try to defeat the opponent in a more tactical way.
Different types of shuttles
The nylon shuttles can be ordered from different brands and at different speeds. The most used speed in the Netherlands is 77 (Blue). The other speeds can always be ordered, but not in stock as standard. The delivery time for these shuttles (76 and 78) is therefore a few days longer. The most used variant is the Yonex Mavis 300. The Yonex Mavis 600 is the nylon shuttle that most closely resembles a feather shuttle in flight and accuracy.
With these shuttles it is more difficult to determine the speed of a shuttle, this is mainly determined in the factory. The cap of the shuttle has a colored sticker or the cap has a colored band.
- Slow = Green
- Medium = Blue

How is a nylon badminton shuttle made?
You take a nylon shuttle from the tube and start your training or competition. You will have done this many times, but how is such a shuttle made? Read here in a few short steps how this works.
- A mold is made from the 'feathers'
- In an advanced machine, the mold is pressed with nylon (this can be done in different colors)
- The 'feathers' are shot out of the machine and have to cool down for a while
- Then the 'cap' of the shuttle is made of cork and is given a casing of a kind of plastic
- The 'cap' and the nylon 'feathers' are attached together in a machine with a little glue
The quality of the shuttle is of course determined by the materials used in the nylon and cork. This also has a major impact on the price to be paid.
