Yonex Mavis 350 badminton Shuttlecock review

Last Updated on

When trying to compile the list of the best shuttlecocks available on the market, it would always be incomplete if you don’t add the Yonex Mavis 350 Fast shuttle, as it is a speedy one. This nylon shuttlecock offers you a performance that only close-to-feather shuttlecocks can offer.

What this means is that by using this, you would feel as comfortable as you are expected to while using a real feather shuttle. Even the flight performance it offers users is about 4 to 5 times accurate and advanced. As a result of this, they are designed to be more durable and also referred to as best for almost any kind of practice. 

Also, these shuttlecocks are designed to be fast in nature. Moreover, one tube of this product contains up to 6 shuttles, that is, about half a dozen, and the machine comes in a red cap. However, there are different types and variations in packages. Hence, the color, such as; 10 tubes and four tubes, are also made available to prospective users.

If you’re not convinced enough as to why you should go this shuttle, then maybe by highlighting the following details would leave you feeling impressed. This little badminton ball has been named as the official shuttlecock used throughout the Northern Californian high school tournaments because most of all the teams love and prefer to go for it.

And not just in the United States alone. The national badminton training institutes also make use of this shuttlecock for all their official games. Are you starting to feel impressed now? 

Technical Details- Yonex Mavis 350 Shuttlecock

When compared with feather shuttles, the feel and speed of the Yonex Mavis 350s are not so spectacular or magnificent. The main difference in that is also that it is a nylon shuttle that flies fast and doesn’t exactly have the sort of touch that most feather shuttles are known to have.

But in the case of a known nylon shuttle, the Yonex Mavis 350s is designed to be good. These shuttles tend to fly at really decent speeds, and they have an excellent feeling about them.

You would also notice the speed difference, especially in your drives, smashes, and even net shots. It would certainly help to push your reaction time. Drops and clears are really solid, which serves as compensation for the other badminton shots.

Just like it is known with the Yonex Mavis 300, one of the most noticeable problems it has is the feel. While the Yonex Mavis 350s kind of feels is a lot better than the 300s, its overhead shots don’t produce that needed satisfying feeling, which is often provided by other feather shuttles.

Nylon shuttles generally also fly differently around, and if you’re someone who uses feather shuttles, you would realize that it takes a lot less power to play some types shots but requires much more energy to play other shots such as making a clear.

What is so lovely and significant about the Yonex Mavis 350s, though, is that as they age, their feel and speed don’t change too much until you start seeing bits of plastic physically breaking off gradually. 

Shuttlecock Pros

  • Most nylon shuttles are very economical when you talk about their price range
  • With advanced manufacturing processes and new technology, the nylon shuttle provides almost the same speed as the feather shuttle.
  • Nylon shuttle is known to be more durable when compared to other feather shuttles.
  • Nylon shuttles are made using high-end and quality materials which serve to offer the very best performance from tournament level to even professional players.

Shuttlecock Cons

  • Poor smashes: This shuttle has a light balance feature that does not allow users to enjoy incredible smashes as much as they would love to do.
  • Quite costly: The price of this badminton shuttlecock has been rated a bit high. This is a significant disadvantage as it makes it somewhat uneasy for beginner players to purchase it, and because of this, only professional and experienced players would possess the needed resources to procure this badminton shuttlecock.

Features & Benefits- Yonex Mavis 350 Shuttlecock

Durability

The durability feature needs to be emphasized in this review, as a significant benefit of using nylon shuttles over feather shuttles is the mere fact that apart from price, they are also known to have exceptional and incredible durability. The Mavis 350s are that good. They have been able to beat out the Mavis 300s a little bit.

These shuttles can withstand days of constant smashing and continuous play. Whenever I buy a tube of these shuttles, they tend to last about half a year as opposed to a month if I decided to go for feather shuttles. This is a pretty good and excellent investment.

Another of the many qualities of the Mavis 350s’ is that, as I mentioned earlier, their feel and speed don’t change so much as they degrade and wear down. Even when parts of the shuttle are somehow broken, they still tend to perform well.

Price

The Yonex Mavis 350s are the best nylon shuttles you can get on the market out there. Great feel and speed, plus excellent durability, and they’re just $1 more expensive than the Yonex Mavis 300s!

These shuttles certainly possess a high value, which is somewhat surprising because this is from Yonex. If you can get high-quality nylon shuttles for $13, then why shouldn’t you buy them or go for them?

You need to know that buying a tube of the Yonex Mavis 350s offers you half a dozen, or six shuttlecocks.

When you compare it to other feather shuttles that come in dozens and also have a price of about $30 upwards, then you’d want to agree that Yonex Mavis 350s come at an absolute value as going for two (a dozen) is only $26. It is still cheaper than going for feather shuttles you’d agree with me!

Conclusion

The real reason people prefer to buy feather shuttles is that they’re the standard worldwide for most badminton tournaments. Tournament players would always prefer to train with feather shuttles because otherwise, they would not understand the control mechanism when using the feather shuttles.
