    Oh kwun...I disappear for more than a year and I find this video of you smashing. We should play the next time I'm home in the Bay Area, though the last time I've played was probably the last time I really posted anything here. More than 2 years? I would love to be on the end of that smash to see how much better you've gotten.

    So what's the concensus? Racket facing the net or facing you?
    I can do both with equal amount of effectiveness but can't say which has more power...

    ^ On wind up as the forearm is supinated in preparation, the racket face is facing inwards towards you. On contact, it should be square on. Then on finish, it'll face slightly outwards.

    The slow motion (00:47 - 01:06) shows that during smashing, his body was still moving backwards. The weight momentum is not going towards the same direction as the shuttle did. Another thing is the elbow was not pushed far enough before he started the forearm pronation and the grip was tightened too early during preparation when it supposed to be at the moment just before impact to generate more "whipping" effect.

    Other than that, I can see this "cannot be named" person has a good relaxed stroke and those smashes were probably just at 70-80% of his full capability. I'm pretty sure he can do better or at least as good on the other shots. Unless he's going for professional career or tournament, he should be doing good enough to beat average players in the club

    In my opinion, it looks like his elbow/shoulder is not pulled back enough before starting the forward swing. Thus, he does not gain power from the contraction of the back/shoulder muscle and about 6 inches of elbow movement. He has good body rotation, but without utilizing that extra space, the smash will always be good, but not great. Also, it looks like he could use more abdominal contraction as well.

    His stroke is decent but he is contacting it not in the center - sweet spot - of the racquet, hence the shanking sound in some of the smashes. He is also slicing it in some of them.

    Actually, I find him holding too tight to his racket and stiff in his hand swing. Just look at where the relax motion is? I don't see any at all after hitting his racket. There should be a V in his and grip and you would see the so call spring effect after smashing where the racket follows in relax manner not following what the arm swing suppose to be. Someone posted LCW and CL youtube here. Check out their last moment after the smashes.
