Bird3 is now available at retailers.
We have modified the air intake apertures in the stem section of the flight. This has modified the internal vortex allowing us to reduce the weight bringing it exactly in line with feather shuttles. Generally nylon shuttles are heavier as the flights are too porous, reducing the speed of the shuttles such that extra weight is needed to get the shuttle to fly further. Even then they are generally too slow. Bird2s are very slightly heavier than feather shuttles, so Bird3 takes another step closer to the all around performance of feathers.
We have also developed a slightly more rigid compound for the stem moulding. This gives a little more feel on the racket.
