Check the following:
1. Correct backhand grip - see Gollums guide http://www.badmintoncentral.com/badm...nt/view/81/35/)
2. Correct supination technique - you should be turning your forehand as you hit the shuttle. Do a search on 'pronation' and 'supination'
3. Appropriate string tension - if you are a beginner then don't go above 22lbs
other than these things it's just practice, practice, practice!!

In any case, the demo had little content. For now, the old guide is better.
Note, however, that the "backhand" grip is not the right grip for hitting backhand overhead clears. For these strokes, you need either:
- A "forehand" grip;
- A panhandle grip; or
- A multipurpose grip.

eh? how can you hit an overhead clear with a panhandle grip, seems a bit odd to me! Not saying you got it wrong, just seems as thought it would be difficult to get the power. Will try it tonight in my front room tonight though!

Yep, I'd backup what Gollum said. I use both a panhandle and a multipurpose (along the diagonal edge) for my backhand overheads. Lee Jae-bok also showed me a version using a forehand grip, but I don't like it as much because there's less potential to hit cross court.

Yes, I use the diagonal edge for backhand clears but the backhand panhandle is a new one for me! I guess I've learned something new today!

Note that the boundary between these grips can become fuzzy.
The panhandle is normally used when the shuttle has passed further behind you, so that you are in real trouble

"Pandhandle" is a name for a common badminton grip, so called because it is similar to one way of holding a frying pan. Put your racket on the floor, and then pick it up "naturally" -- i.e. without turning it. This is a panhandle grip, a 90 degrees rotation from "forehand" (neutral).
