Backhand serve look like flick
Have anyone have had success with playing a short backand serve, but trick the opponent to think it is a flick?

yes, use very fast 'back swing' . It's only ever going to work on someone that is actually afraid of a flick serve, ie players that aren't that good anyway.

Thanks, that is what I thought of, but to much backswing can easily make it a bad short serve. I have tried to hit it either low or high on the string bed, but I cannot make it realistic.
So perhaps you are right, it only works for low levels.

Going to do a short backhand serve but I really do a long backhand serve and they take a long time to go to the shuttle because they're confused.

Nevermind the eyes, no opponent ever looks into your eyes (unless you're as pretty as e.g. Imogen Bankier...;-))

If you can make it as a good standard serve, then perhaps when you actually do a flick, they might get it late ??? But if the cost is a lower quality short serve, it is not worth it.

Lol did this for game point playing my friend one night. Pulled the racket back, quick flick forward and immediately slow the racket head before tapping the bird. Literally the funniest game point I've had. He stumbled trying to return this serve xD

In doubles game i use this, http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=TgfIkKT-WLA. Slow backswing n slow forward swing just like short serve, which also gives u consistency on every short serve, but increase the speed on ur forward swing suddenly before contacting the shuttle to flick. Very deceptive. NOTE: increase the speed in the middle of ur forward swing, not on the beginning, not directly after ur slow backswing.

But if u want ur short serve to look like flick, forehand serve does better job on this. Not really effective though imo coz it s easier for ur opponent to rush forward.
