Babolat shuttlecocks have earned the respect of many players in the UK and have strongly positioned themselves as one of the premier options for clubs, counties and tournaments. Babolat have partnered with Badminton England to become their official shuttle partner for all Badminton England tournaments and county competitions.

After thoroughly testing Babolat shuttlecocks ourselves, we're confident that you'll appreciate their quality and value as much as we do. 

Established in 1875, Babolat stands as one of the most seasoned manufacturers of racket sports equipment globally. Originating as a specialist in tennis and later becoming a frontrunner in string and racket technology, Babolat expanded its horizons to encompass badminton in 1995. Now recognized as one of Europe's premier brands, Babolat continually builds upon its tennis success by seamlessly integrating innovative technologies into their badminton rackets, shoes, apparel, and shuttlecocks.

Babolat is unwavering in its pursuit of raising the technology and performance bar, often fostering collaborations across industries. An illustrative instance is their partnership with Michelin, experts in grip technology. This collaboration dates back to 2005 and has allowed Babolat to tap into the wealth of knowledge held by Michelin engineers. The goal has been to refine grip mechanisms in their Babolat badminton shoes to match the explosive movements and sudden halts pivotal to the game.

Rest assured, every Babolat badminton product offered is nothing less than 100% genuine.

What are the best Babolat shuttlecocks?

For value for money there is no doubt that the best Babolat badminton shuttlecocks on offer are the Babolat Hybrid shuttles.

These shuttles combine the flight and feel of a feather shuttle but with increased durability and at the cost of a plastic or nylon shuttle. Babolat Hybrid shuttlecocks are meticulously crafted by integrating premium natural goose feathers, into a synthetic "frame" or "skirt." This innovative construction technique not only imparts a robust and steady foundation to the shuttlecock but also effectively curtails production expenses. This cost-efficient approach brings about a practical advantage that can be directly enjoyed by players. The feathers are strategically placed around the synthetic underpinning, orchestrating a precise equilibrium and a seamless flight path for optimal performance. The Babolat hybrid shuttles are available in both the slower 77 speed and the slightly faster 78 speed, to suit preferences and court speed conditions. 

For those looking for a more traditional feather shuttle then look no further than the Babolat 2 feather shuttlecocks, which are crafted from goose feathers and developed for club and tournament play. These shuttles have been extremely popular here at BadmintonHQ, often selling out very quickly. Stock permitting, the Babolat 2's are available in both 77 and the slightly faster 78 speed to suit your needs.
