Whether played with nylon or feather birds, the game of badminton is defined by the unique flight characteristics of the rapidly spinning and rapidly decelerating shuttlecock. Black Knight manufactures nylon and feather shuttlecocks, both to the highest possible standard. In fact, Black Knight feather shuttlecocks were used in the 1999 Canada Winter Games and are used in numerous top tournaments throughout Canada. Black Knight nylon shuttlecocks have official status with several provincial badminton associations. The term "speed" refers to how far a shuttlecock will travel when struck with a standard force, "further" being considered "faster". Due to differences of air resistance related to altitude, humidity and temperature, the same shuttlecock will have a different "speed" at different locations. At Black Knight we refer to the speeds as follows:
Canadian standard speed, suitable for most locations in Canada, High altitude, low humiditylocations.
Canadian standard speed, suitable for most locations in Canada, High altitude, low humiditylocations.

Control 2000 (Nylon)
See Advertising
This revolutionary shuttlecock allows players to adjust the speed easily without damage (patent pending). Each Control 2000 shuttlecock initially flies at the "Vancouver" standard speed, but incorporates 3 precisely weighted tapes around the cork. Players can reduce the speed by up to two feet (in 8 inch stages), by removing the tapes, or can increase the speed by adding tapes. The tapes have no effect on performance, only on speed. This adjustment can be made as necessary at the start of play, or later during play if the bird has become too fast. With its rapid spin and precise flight, the Control 2000 is an all around excellent performer, whether playing delicate shots at the net, or smashing with full force.
