Hi I think the timing of the hit is too late. Your feets already landed prior to hitting the shuttle, therefore the momentum and thrust of the body plus gravity is not transfered, making it even less effective than a standing smash. If not mistaken, this particular shot hit the net? Try jumping higher and hit it while just on the way down.

youtube reduced the quality of the video by alot. the white shuttle plus my white strings make it hard to locate the shuttle at the point of impact. i actually one-shot killed that ralley, but we werent playing seriously...just fooling around

it didnt look like you got alot of air, and yea youtube killed the bird, couldnt see the angle of the shot after you hit it or where you hit it. But the good thing is you managed to pull it off and it was pretty quick/fast?

WAY too late, and it looked as if u did a clear rather than a smash. u gotta jump higher and contact shuttle earlier.

your jumping way to late and your not getting enough height. it seems like you contact the birdie exactly when you hit the ground, therefore there will be no angle on your shot which defeats the purpose of a smash. try to get right underneth the birdie. you should be able to plant your feet and then go for the jump smash. also, arch you back as much as possible, it gives you more power.
i hope that helped

i think the timing of the jump is a lil too early...you kinda hit the ball while you are kinda falling back to the ground...Try jumping higher and hit it while just on the way down...and the timing..jump later..you are jumping too early..

Hm I agree you should jump a lot higher. In addition to that, don't jump backwards, it reduces the power quite a lot. Also try to execute the bending part better, like use your abs as well and then staighten your legs.
Anyway, this topic was a good idea, I think I'll record my jump smash as well and let you guys help me improve it as well.

The jump is not adding anything to your stroke, since you appear to hit as you are landing, not while you are in the air.
More importantly, you are hardly turning your body at all during the smash. You land with your right leg behind; you should turn your body and land with your left leg behind instead. You also allow your torso to collapse forwards as you hit, instead of remaining upright and balanced. This makes recovery more difficult and also reduces the quality of your smash.
Forget about jump smashing for a while, and concentrate on a good basic smash.
