Okay, i dont know does this ever happen to anyone of you. But after a transition to a new racquet armortec 900p to VT80, i began to lose power in my smash and actually losing the smash itself (as in miss hitting it alot more, and even when i hit it at some occasion it may be flat, not as powerful as before etc). Since them in my doubles game i began to smash way less, and play at the front of the net more. With my AT900p, i use to generate big smashes as im a relatively tall guy too, 6'2, and i would get comments from my opponent "very big smash, strong smash" etc. I've done a little bit of training on the technique of smash which follows the china way as the amateur coach use to train on the provincial team in china. As i switch over, roughly over 2 months now to VT80 its not as consistent, less accuracy and everything. I started to question my techniques again, especially the grip. As i do less and less smash i start forgetting my basic form etc. I was curious about the finger tightening on smash, do you do it on the all 5 fingers, or do you put emphasis on certain finger like the index and thumb. Do you put the your index finger a bit higher than the thumb? Cause i notice one game i tweeked it a little bit, and somehow my smashes cameback to me? Funny thing is, i can smash better when i play single. alot more power etc, could this be more positioning as well? Thanks for your input!
