Can anyone tell me what the rule is when this happens:
The other side smash at us, and our return is weak and high, floating high above the net. It's too weak to go over the net and is actually dropping down on our own side BUT as it falling past the tape, long before it hits the floor, the opponent at the net takes a swipe, thinking it's going to come over and touches the tape with his racket.
So, when is the point over? When the shuttle hits the floor? (we lose) Or when the opponent touches the net? (they lose).

Can't touch the net during rally. Period. You guys got the point.

Hi David 14700,
Once the shuttle still in play, if yr opponent racket hit the net, then, it is a fault. The point is yrs.The umpire has the final say since he will be closest to the net.

from the rules
It is a Ďfaultí:
13.3 if, when in play, the initial point of contact with the shuttle is not on the strikerís side of the net. (The
striker may, however, follow the shuttle over the net with the racket in the course of a stroke);
In your example the point is over the instant the racquet touches the shuttle.
Oops! Misread the original post!

17. SHUTTLE NOT IN PLAY
A shuttle is not in play when:
17.2 strikes the net or post and starts to fall towards the surface of the court on the strikerís side of the net;
It's a matter of timing and a judgement call, but technically the shuttle does not have to land to ruled "not in play".
Often it is hard to call since it could be split second between the shuttle hitting the net (on the striker side) and the opponent hitting the net. Since it is hard to call, in minor tournaments or where there is no judge, the person who hit the net is usually called at fault.

But if i smash and the bird hit the floor then my follow trough touch the tape, I mean it's very clear that the point was over. Or if i touch the net with my body after do i still lose the point

Unfortunately, it is not always clear cut as to which occured first, since when you wind up touching the net, likely (if there are no judges) the attention will be directed to your follow through action and not to the actual moment the shuttle lands in your opponents court.
Without instant replay it's often the judgment call.
