Natural feather shuttles are a popular choice with competent leisure players and for league matches alike. A natural feather shuttle weighs between 4.9 and 5.1 g, which determines the shuttle's speed.
The Victor "Pro Court" shuttles have the shuttle speed 77. This number gives the shuttle weight in "grain", an English weight measurement. This means that the "Pro Court" shuttle is suitable for low-ceiling halls, high altitudes and warm sports halls.
Natural feather shuttles have considerably better playing characteristics compared to nylon shuttles. The flight trajectory of nylon shuttles is relatively round and even. In comparison, the flight trajectory of natural feather shuttles is quick and steep when moving up and down. Natural feather shuttles provide more opportunities for spin and enable better shuttle control. Because of the advantages, natural shuttles are becoming the preferred choice even in lower leagues.
Victor "Pro Court" badminton shuttles undergo very stringent quality control checks. To test the flight characteristics, each individual shuttle is put through a speed test either by hand or machine. Victor has its own production and is one of the world's largest shuttle manufacturers.
