We have had lots of good feedback from early sales. The most common comments refer to the much more feather like feel and performance. Players appreciate the extra precision and control on all shots, notably around the net where one has to work a bit harder than with a regular nylon shuttle as Bird2 doesn't ping off the racket so easily. Some nylon users take a while to get used to this but feather users appreciate the extra control which allows them to keep the net shots tight. Most people are getting about 4 games before small splits occur in the top of the flight, however they remain usable as this has little affect on performance. We feel this level of durability is about right; we can improve durability further at the expense of a little bit of control around the net but we will probably introduce another product to the range for general use which will be more durable.
