need help with the backhand smash
hi, i thought you people might like to give me some tips on the backhand smash.
i don't do it alot, and when i actually have opportunities, i often hit the shuttle into the net , but once in a while i get it over, and when i do, very few people i played with can block it.
i conclued that i have good power but bad angle.
can u guys help me?

I suppose you are not mistaking a backhand net kill with a backhand smash. If so, try overhead smash, it is much more powerfull. Backhand smash is used ocassionally, just to surprise your opponent.

is backhand smash even an important shot? Most people only do that shot when for some reason they can't hit a round the head... i don't think anyone really sets up for a backhand smash ... Poul Erik Larsen is probly the only player i've ever seen who did.
i guess if you have a badass one like keneth jonnassen you might get a few points out of it but most of the time they'll probly get it back anyhow since its always going to be weaker than a real smash
I think the only real advantage in being able to do that is wacking it really hard when you first make them expect a drop or weak return ... i dont really mean deception .. i just mean after they see you backhand drop a few times they'll expect it again and then you hit a hard one, that might have some effect.

easiest way is to do an around the head, its more powerful as well

i agree with the ppl here tat u should use the overhead stroke more to cover ur backhand weakness since u said it goes to the net sometimes den ur opponent will start forcing u to do the backhand.but however its useful when the shuttle is too low for a overhead stroke or caught out of position coz since when u do a backhand ur back will be facing ur opponent.

The way i did a backhand smash a few years ago was to start with the basic backhand drop technique.
You should be able to clear from back tramline to tramline to get the full effectiveness of the backhand smash.
Then start by backhand drops, and gradually hit it harder and flatter and eventually you will be hitting flat drives and then aim to hit the shuttle at a higher point.
But i do not recommend it when playing actual games. It may make you look good but you will lose many points as everyone knows the forehand is the strongest, you might as well attempt an around the head smash.

as of doing a better backhand smash. the most important thing will be a correct gripping of a racket as well as the timing.

it's done very rarely when I have no other choice, recovery is not much longer than a normal backhand smash.
I can only perform this if opponent lifts from the net (back hand) cross court to my backhand. It is not a powerful smash. just very steep if it is to be effective.
