maybe u should try using the strength from your wrist more... thus making your smashes steeper.....

Am i doing something wrong ???

you're probably not using forearm pronation

Probably timing issue - try to consciously tell yourself to contact the bird more in front of you (and higher). The racket face angle would naturally give you a steeper smash.

owh..i see..now i know..i usually contact the bird above my head...maybe that's the problem..need to adjust my timing and position then..

this deosnt work for everyone depending on how they smash, but try following through the whole way with your arm swing motion.

My advice is to get a coach , and practice the shot until you are happy with it. None of us here can help you without seeing you in action and standing right beside you. It would be helpful if the members on here could make a video to demonstrate the technique , otherwise it is just words

Try getting further behind the shuttle, and leaving the "zip" phase of the swing till later (but getting your feet behind the shot is more important).

it's your timing
When you clear you usually want to try to hit it at a 11 o'clock position. If you want a more steeper smash, you have to imagine hitting it at a 10 o'clock position. Basically, just change your hitting angle

Point of contact between the shuttlecock n racket face should at least be 11 o'clock position, viewing sideway. For high clear could be at 12 o'clock or even 1 o'clock (if you are a bit late in yr footwork/reaction). You have to use yr wrist for really steep smashes. Watch Lin Dan or Fu Hai Feng's slow motion.

position of the body
not enough wrist pronation
arm extension (reaching the highest point)
footwork (not getting behind the bird)
all these and more can be the cause
as mentioned by other bc-ers, best bet is to get a coach to correct you or post a video and hope for the best
