most difficult shot?
backhand crosscourt jump smash obviously...
a winning one...
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.
I think it should be Backhand Smash
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.
Especially during pressure time. Same one for me as well.
That's one of my favourite shots . 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...
The look on your opponents face over and over again is priceless too
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)
Did you try the in between the legs? lol.
See 8:20 and 10:35 for the killer between the legs shot. lol.

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