[5 7] ABSTRACT A shuttlecock for sports use in which the shuttlecock is kicked about a playing surface and into the air.-The shuttlecock includes a soft plastic body of a substantially flat generally circular shape and having an axial socket for holding guiding feathers. The plastic body is generally in the form of a disk and in one form of the invention is hollow. In a second form of the invention the hollow cavity of the body has weights positioned therein, In' a third form of the invention the body is solid and has vertical bores extending therethrough.
1 Claim, 7 Drawing Figures 1 SHUTTLECOCK BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION Field of the Invention The present invention relates to shuttlecocks to be kicked by the user.
, Summary of the Invention A shuttlecock of a hollow disk form including a socket at the axis thereof for receiving guiding feathers. The shuttlecock is formed of soft plastic and is filled with weights in one form of the invention. In another form of the invention'the shuttlecock is solid and has vertical bores extending therethrough.
The primary object of the invention is to provide a shuttlecock for kicking about a playing surface and into the air in the playing of games.
Other objects and advantages will become apparent in the following specification when considered in the light of the attached drawings.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS FIG. 1 is a front elevation of the invention;
FIG. 2 is an enlarged horizontal sectional view, taken along the line 22 of FIG. 1, looking in the direction of the arrows;
FIG. 3 is a vertical sectional view, taken along the line 3-3 of FIG. 2, looking in the direction of the arrows;
FIG. 4 is a view similar to FIG. 2 of a modified form of the invention;
FIG. 5 is a vertical sectional view, taken along the line 55 of FIG. 4, looking in the direction of the arrows;
FIG. 6 is a view similar to FIG. 2 of another modified form of the invention; and
FIG. 7 is a vertical sectional view, taken along the line 77 of FIG. 6, looking in the direction of the arrows.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS Referring now to thedrawings in detail, wherein like reference characters indicate like parts throughout the several figures, the reference numeral 10 indicates generally a shuttlecock constructed in accordance with the invention.
The shuttlecock -10 includes a soft plastic body 11 of generally disk like form and having a hollow cavity 12 formed therein. The body 11 has a relatively thin bottom wall 13 and a relatively thin top wall 14 joined by a generally circular scalloped side wall 15. A socket 16 is integrally formed on the top wall 14 axially thereof and extends upwardly therefrom.
Guide feathers l7 are secured in the socket 16 to guide the shuttlecock as it is lofted when kicked on a playing surface.
In the use and operation of the invention the shuttle cock 10 is positioned on the ground and is kicked with the toe of the foot to move it across the ground and to 0 cause it to become airborne at times.
Referring now to FIGS. 4 and 5 a modificed shuttlecock is illustrated generally at 110. The shuttlecock with the exception that the body 111 has its cavity 112 filled with weights W when required for the particular game or games to be played. The use and operation of the shuttlecock 110 is identical to that of the shuttlecock 10.
Referring now to FIGS. 6 and 7 a modified form of the shuttlecock is illustated generally at 210.
The shuttlecock 210 includes a solid disk like body 211 of generally circular form and having a plurality of vertical bores 212 extending from the 'lower surface 213 to the upper surface 214 thereof.
The body 11 has a scalloped side edge 215 and the upper surface 214 has a feather holding socket 216 extending upwardly therefrom.
The body 211 is formed of soft plastic and the bores 212 add resiliency to the body 211 when kicked and in addition reduce the air resistance of the body 211 as it is moving through the air after being kicked.
The use and operation of the shuttlecock 210 is identical to that of the shuttlecock 10.
Having thus described the preferred embodiments of the invention it should be understood that numerous structural modifications and adaptations may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention.
What is claimed is:
1. A shuttle cock formed of soft plastic material and including a disk-like body having spaced parallel upper and lower faces, an axial socket member integrally formed on said body and extending upwardly from said upper face, a plurality of guide feathers secured at one end in said socket and extending upwardly therefrom, said body having a generally circular scalloped outer edge, a large central cavity in said body and a plurality of weight members loosely positioned for movement in said cavity, each of said weight members being substantially smaller than said cavity.
