    Default Backhand shot problems

    Hey guys,

    Just a few inquiries regarding the backhand. I find my backhand relatively weak, but i can still sometimes impart enough power to bring it near back court. Problem is not 100%, and also when i hit i dont get that solid sound on the sweet spot. My diagnoses is that my racquet is not flat enough when i hit my backhand. I want to ask:

    When guys do a backhand clear, do you hold your racquet loose ( as in not as tight as you smash)?
    When you execute a backhand clear, is your racquet literally flat(perpendicular to the birdie)?
    What technique do you use to allow you to easily switch to your backhand grip?

    And make sure you have tight core stability while hitting. Do Not lean your back into the shot!.

    here is a more methodical approach to introduce the backhand. You dont have to understand the language, just watch the excercises and progression, maybe they will help you.

    To get effortless backhand clear, you must have forearm supination and lots of it. In preparation, make sure you pronate first, then lead with elbow towards the bird, then unwind your forearm into supination. Make sure you transfer some body wt into the shot by planting your racket foot and leaning into the shot at strike.

    Search for previous threads, been discussed many many times already.

    This is an really easy approach. I learned it this way a few years back from the guy the coach in the vid is referring to.

    is supination a big part of creating a more powerful backhand clear?

    yes, supination is the basic stroke for high and low backhand, and under hand forehand lift. Just important as pronation for forehand stroke.

    when you supinate, is your grip and wrist very relax?

    Yep, up until that final moment of impact. Imagine your whole arm as loose like a whip. Then at the end of supination at point of impact, harden you wrist and grip.

    Excellent tutorial by one of BC's members, thejym.
    Pay attention to the movement of the elbow tip, and forearm pronation during pull back and supination on strike.

    yes, use bevel grip. And panhandle is the shuttle is past your body - deep. Personally I use pan-handle for all deep backhand shots (and sometime for net kill on forehand side).
