    im trying to invent a new tactic, where by you keep driving both your opponents to one side and finally cross court, when I work it out I'll scan the disgram and post it here, the drive serve is something Im thinking of, I just need some comments about this drive serve guys pls reply about this who does it and how about it, in the meantime I'll work on the tactic

    Badminton's been around for a while. Inventing a "new" tactic maybe hard. :p

    Hmmm, your tactic really depends on the speed of your opponents. Your opponents can return the favour if they are faster than you.

    Who says it is hard? Just ask CD. He can reduce his COG to nothing.

    well dinkalot is a big figure in BC, for cracked frames, shafts, snapped rackets, over tensioning, and high speed stringing

    anyway i tried out just now and also drew a few diagrams, I realised that if you serve from the front, its not as easy to drive serve as from the back, server behind has disadvantages, however i dunno if this is legal, but having the server behind and the partnet at the front to block the servers racket(if being someone with bigger built), in this way the receiver will not be able to determine the servers intentions.

    CD = CoolDoob.

    Against fast opponents is tough, against advanced fast opponents even tougher.

    From the description given below, are you planning to play mixed double games with your (same S E X as you) partner?

    what do you mean by that, I dont really have a partner my friends all dont really reached the stage where you are so hardcore to think of such a thing well I'll be happy to find a partner

    all im saying is that, serving from behind, to have your partner infront blocking your racket off, it can reduce the receivers field of view

    You are susceptible to a few things, corner drop, the push to the deep corners and even a deep push straight back.

    so we can have the partner take up front position straight away and server take the back, if you want to have side by side position then...just move there

    also Im not sure if you guys are already doing this, but i realised that when pushing aiming for your opponents forehand side's armpit is ideal way to jam his movements

    lol im quite crazy nowadays im thinking of this weird stuff...

    even if saying corner drop, the angle from the drive serve doesnt let him make a tight one does he? i mean having a flat serve to the back, he is not able to generate tighter angles for a drop

    Do you really play against such low level opponents, that they don't intercept your flat serve and have to hit the shuttle in the back court?

    I think every good player will intercept a fast flat service right at the net like a low service and the shuttle will come back to you so fast that you can't move at all...

    Or do I not understand what you mean at all?!?

    No, you can't serve low to the back.
    You could try a drive serve 1 or 2 times in a match to surprise your opponent, but that's it.

    Perhaps if you play against beginners you can do it more often...

    Normally you can do a low short serve or a flick serve!
