Yonex Nylon Shuttlecock

Yonex Mavis Shuttlecocks are the most popular Nylon Shuttlecock in the world. Here is a short primer on the Yonex Mavis series from Badminton365’s inhouse badminton expert.


Yonex Mavis series are designed to deliver the combination of close-to-feather shuttlecock flight performance and four to five times more durability than an ordinary nylon shuttlecock. With this, the it is the most cost-effective choice for practice sessions and club games.

Recovery Time

When smashed, a MAVIS shuttlecock recovers in only 0.02 seconds. This performance is just 0.005 seconds slower than a YONEX Feather shuttlecock and 0.008 seconds faster than the recovery of an ordinary shuttlecock.

Flight Pattern

Developed using the flight timing of feather shuttlecocks, MAVIS Nylon shuttlecocks are precision designed and manufactured to provide accurate flight performance.

Wing Rib Design

The WING RIB design utilizes air flow through the shuttlecock to restore shape quickly on impact. Based on flight dynamics, this original design grants stable flight, contrary to conventional models that restore shape via stiff construction.

Suitable for all playing conditions

Players should always use the shuttlecocks best suited to the playing environment. The hardness of the skirt – the feather part of the nylon shuttlecock – varies depending on temperature. In the cold, as the skirt becomes hard, it is prone to breaking. In the hot, the skirt becomes softer and less likely to break, but the feel at impact is affected by the softer skirt.

YONEX manages product quality by categorising MAVIs into 3 temperatures. Green Cap (slow) is the most suitable shuttles for Indian playing conditions.
