    sarath, it's true that a pro would fire off the shuttle like a Saturn 5 booster rocket, if he is to play with a very trampoline like string bed. though low string tensions have the effect, too, to alter the angle and trajectories of the shuttle without much predictable control by the player, so if you're training a shot that skims the net, a low string tension racket is probably like to produce more errors on this.

    the speed of your hand in time and space by and large determines the initial booster rocket speed of the shuttlecock, the faster you can accelerate your hand, the faster the shot. a racket in hands, however, has a limit to how fast you can swing it, heavy rackets are more difficult to swing fast.

    whippy shafts gives the shuttlecock an extra kick, if the timing is right, however timing may change accuracy of the shot, the more whippy the less you have to give the shuttle as a necessary kick---that means the shaft takes responsibility for aspects of the stroke away from you, so you have less control over the shot overall.

    finally your body movement that goes into a stroke makes all the difference: skinny female players can shoot stronger than some male club player because they do the body movement on top on the overall arm, hand and racket swing.

    it is loose. A lot people are concerned about it flying out but really it won't , it feels weird at fist cause your not used to it but when you do you can feel every touch of the shuttle with your fingers. I always love seeing women players because their touch of the racket is always soft that is why women players are always quicker to learn than man players.

    Right. It's loose, but not too loose. It won't fly out and you can't easily pull it out (no way you can have one of those things being true without the other). But the grip is still relaxed.

    I dont see why people have difficulty understanding the concept, the grip should be loose ( , but enough grip on the handle that it would not slip out of the hand) before impact and tighten at the point of impact.

    P.S. You need to use the correct grip for each shot before playing around with how soft the racket should be held

    I am aware of the comment when I watched the video a year ago. Exactly what motivated zhao to say this I don't know. Sometimes you are forced to panhandle if the shuttle is far infront of you like a net kill. The videos, excellent as they are, are semi casual conversations with various badminton players and the coaches they are not the gospel.

    The fact is basic grip for overhead shots is essential otherwise your progress will be limited. Above a certain level there is absolutely no player who panhandles smashes or clears.

    The sooner you change to correct grip the better otherwise it becomes much harder to change.
