    Every player has a favorite shot or a trademark shot he uses to beat his opponents.

    My favorite shot to play is probably the backhand overhead clear. I just love the whip feeling and in my class your opponent is astonished when you play unusual shots like these.

    My trademark shot... Perhaps a fake right overhead clear which ends as a cross court drop shot. Always make them the others look like fools with this.

    But, I'd like to know about all of you!:confused:

    This one works well....most of the time...make a jumping stroke (fast sideline stoke ) into the far corner of the opponent backhand side which in result the opponent has no choice other than to do an emergency backhand lob :crying:(as he is off position)....and then kill him off with a jumping cross court smash/slice:D...........boy, he looks like a statue pinned to the court:p. Damnnnnnnn................i like playing badminton:cool:

    my trademark shot is used in doubles when receiving serve in left field. I have my racket on forehand side/ backhandgrip and then backhand slice shot from my forehand position so the shuttle goes from my forehand position to the left in the tramrails

    My trademark and favorite shot is the 'round-the-head forehand, reverse-sliced, cross-court drop shot from the left base-line corner. I make it look like a fast and powerful down-the-line clear until the last second when i slice the shuttle from the highest point i can reach. This is particularly effective in singles because the threat of a fast clear to the baseline forces my opponent far away from the frontcourt. If he manages to lunge/dive into his backhand frontcourt corner to get this dropshot, the result is usually a mid-court lift that I can immediately kill with a full-on smash to the other side. ;-P

    A huge jumpsmash. It's not massively unique but I play it better than most people.

    I like to play backhands, but my coach say I rely too much on the backhand and need to play overhead forehand instead.

    An other stroke I like is the super hard hitting super sliced reverse crosscourt drop from my forehand (I cant do it the other way:rolleyes:)

    Probably fast round the head cross court cut drop or smash, especially when opponent expect a shot down the line or punch clear down the line, so satisfying! haha!

    my favourite shot has to be the crosscourt drop of a high serve it's great watching your opponent dive hopelessly when he has just been wrongfooted

    Backhand cross court fast drop/smash - success 75% of the time, but fool people 99% of the time ;)

    My other trademark shot which eventually didn't materealized is
    "a huge jumping smashes, which eventually i don't know how on earth my grip slipped .....and as a devastating results, the momentum of the racket swinging process causes the racket frame to hit my #%$@ area......which ended in a damneddddddd paiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin man.........thank god it is still intact...feeeeeeeewwww".

    An underarm forehand crosscourt when caught out deep in the backhand corner, this takes hours of practice for something which only gets used seldomly but gets huge applause. When you're really stretching into the backhand rearcourt this is the last resort!!!!

    I'm fairly new, so I'm not sure of my trademark shot.
    Maybe the fake jump smash drop.
    Some of the club members pointed out that I am extremely lucky and hit shots into the net tape only to have it tumble to the other side.
    I didn't realize that before they pointed it out, but it does happen quite a number of times whenever I play.
    Maybe that's the trademark shot.
    Luck.

    Any net poach shot. Typically in doubles, one of us will drive their smashes, and then we pause for a moment, and right before they pull off their shot, if it looks like they're trying to drop so that they can make us clear and get the attack back, one of us will rush the net and poach. BOOM. XD

    It backfires when they wait longer and then drive down the line though.
