Plastic Badminton Bird (Jul, 1952)

I’ve only ever seen plastic birdies, so I guess this was a success.

Plastic Badminton Bird
Now available for badminton players is a plastic shuttlecock that the manufacturer claims will last four times longer than a feathered bird. It is true in flight and unaffected by moisture or prolonged disuse.

    They’re still made of feathers (check the Google ads to the left) but there is a supply problem because of H5N1:

    I think my parents still have some vintage ’52 plastic badminton shuttlecocks in their garage.
