  • A shuttlecock (often abbreviated to shuttle and also commonly known as a bird) is a high-drag projectile, with an open conical shape: the cone is formed from sixteen overlapping feathers embedded into a rounded cork base.
  • Synthetic shuttles are often used by recreational players to reduce their costs as feathered shuttles break easily.
  • Feather shuttlecocks tend to be quicker than the plastic alternative, and have a much more consistent flight.
