At the time of writing the Victor Master Ace is the official tournament shuttle of the Danisa Denmark Open and the Victor China Open, showing it is trusted at the highest level on the world tour.

The base is made from the highest quality Portuguese cork for optimum rebound and the injection moulded skirt is hardwearing to offer far greater durability than any of the Victor feather shuttlecocks. 

The best Victor shuttlecock for outdoor play is the Air Shuttle. Developed for outdoor play, the Air Shuttle is helping badminton to become more accessible through the Air Badminton initiative. Victor is the first badminton brand to cooperate with BWF in releasing a shuttle specific for this purpose. The Air Shuttle is more resistant to wind than traditional shuttlecocks, allowing for a truer flight path, and a more positive experience for outdoor badminton play.

What is the best shuttle speed?

Shuttle speed can be affected by atmospheric conditions so there are different speed options to suit the conditions of play. In colder conditions shuttles will fly slower and so this is often counterbalanced by using faster shuttles. In hotter, more humid countries it is common for slower speeds to be used so that the shuttle can still be controlled. In the UK, during the badminton season it is most common for speed 78 shuttles to be used, although speed 77 is sometimes used in faster conditions.
