    It also by far the most useless shot...if you have time to jump, you have time for a forehand.

    Jump smash , as it takes stamina as well as good technique and perfect timing. It is also practical as well , not like those silly shots mentioned in above posts

    A backhand overhead cross-court drop I think sensibly is the most demanding shot ever.

    Not all shots are listed in here; would be nice to see a vote on all the shorts including backhand clear; backhand smash, backhand cross-court, etc...

    I agree! Backhand in itself is hard. But to do backhand cross court jump smash....boy, that's gonna be very tough! And we're talking about effective shots.

    Has anyone talked about smashing-slicing drop ? It hits like a smash - in straight forward swing, but the contact is on the side, the feathers, and hence the birdie travels "off course" across the court and drop in slightly further than a true drop.

    That's one of my favourite shots :D . Although most of the time I disguise it as a clear and play a sliced drop in the "off course" front corner.

    One of my favorites. Especially nice if you impressed your opponent with an earlier smash so his defensive position is deep...

    Do u have a name for this shot ? Do u try brushing the feathers hard (to make it appear as u r smashing) ? If u r right handed, would it be hitting/brushing the 3 o'clock ? Any vid to share?

    You have the brush the shuttle hard otherwise it won't reach the other side of the net.(because of the slice)

    It's a sliced drop - appears to be a smash, but instead of smashing it straight, you turn the face of the racket and slice the shuttle hard. It's still a fast drop, but should go crosscourt near the sideline.
    You'll also need to go over the shuttle to get it to go down quickly (it's not a stop drop), so it's more like 2 o'clock for a right-hander.
    I'll see if I have some footage of it - but I doubt it^^

    Overhead straight slice, for me, is a hard shot to hit consistently, and I can pretty much hit anything. :rolleyes:

    00:39 and 07:21 should give you a general idea of the shot. Please don't watch the 2nd game :D
