    What is more important in smashes is its effectiveness, not sheer power alone, especially in singles. If Fu were to play singles his smashes will be his downfall. On the other hand Haryanto Arby was a deceptive and hard smasher (not as hard as Fu) and his smashes were very, very effective. You can see a little of Haryanto Arby's style of smashing today in Bao CL-you cannot tell if he is going to clear or drop or smash either to the left or the right, until it is too late.

    Forget the great wall of China, these guys rock!
    The number of times you would see them just continually lifting so that they could return their opponents smashes for fun!
    And then they'd just turn defence into attack and then bang, game over.
    Quite simply amazing.

    Agree, but you would have to add KDM to the list to be fair!

    And based on the topic, "HARD" smashes, my vote goes to FHF.
