    i lot of those jumps look incredible cos of the way they bend their legs upwards. if they extend the leg, it's probably on par with basketballers. photography skills and a lil' knee bending makes it look super-duper. but in reality, it's only a super jump lol

    and non-pros who dont bend their legs so much may not look so good because they dont bend their legs, but in actual fact, they might be jumping just as high and just as well.

    There is a purpose for bending their knees when they jump 3-4 feet in the air to smash, it isnt because it looks good.

    When you hit the shuttle your upper body lean forwards thus you need your leg to kick forwards as well to neutralize the force. if not you will face down and it will take sometime to balance back your position thus slow down your reaction.

    This is the way to reduce impulsive force.The bended legs lenghten the time impact when the shuttlers landed and thus,reduce impulsive force.It's all about physics theory.

    Fu Hai Feng is the best jump-smasher. so powerful. He holds the fastest smash record which is 336km/h. amazing speed!
    Lee Chong Wei is also good.
    However, the best backhand smasher goes to Taufik Hidayat. dont remember the speed, around 260km/h

    I noticed that BCL doesn't has a very steep and accurate jump smash but I find he doesn't perform it often because he's so tall. Chen hong and LCW are the best. Watch the youtube video of WC 06 with Chen hong vs taufik, and watch how many times taufik goes to the right when Chen Hong's smash goes left. LCW just for he's crosscourts.

    Taufik's backhand smash is as fast as BCL's smash... How amazing is that...

    Taufik's smash is the best...

    His wrist seems to be reinforced with Kryptonite or something... See his Backhand Smash, and you will be gobsmacked

    If your Backhand Smash is crazy, imagine your Forehand.

    Zhao Jianhua - as mentioned earlier in the thread (last year!); there is no way to predict where he was aiming until the shuttle passes the net.

    Hariyanto Arbi - similar to ZJH but a lot more tricky.

    Sigit Budiarto - did I see him jump metres high at the Glasgow world championship? Not only are they really high, they can be supremely deceptive.

    Nowadays I suppose Fu Haifeng takes the cake - all power focused into that single spot on the racquet.

    i know there's a reason for bending the knees, i'm learning that very reason now . BUT...it still makes the jump seem much higher than it is really. i didn't say they do it to make it look high. just a by-product

    Thomas Laybourn has a nice smashing from his overhead when he jumps to his left using his left foot.

    most people wouldn't be able to jump that high and far on left foot (assuming right handers).

    can anyone most more pics of him doing smashes?

    Default wanna find this fabulous photo...

    guys, nice thread...

    i came across a fabulous pic previously when i browsed thru this forum sometime ago, and i cant seem to find it again after 2 days of searching this forum...

    its a lindan jump smash pic taken from a game between lindan and leehyunil.
    the pic is taking from rear left hand side of the court when lindan is airbourne, about to execute his jump smash, while leehyunil on the other far side of the court, is standing ready, looking at lindan, to receive the smash... the expression in leehyunil's face is priceless... its like almost saying.. "sh*t"... it really captures the moment...

    guys, if any of u have this photo, pls post it here... i want it for my wallpaper...

    thanks...

    Based on recent tournaments Jung Jae-Sung is getting my vote. Not 100% consistent, but when he really gets hold of one (his trademark shout usually accompanies these) it's NOT coming back. He's an absolutely tiny man (less than 5' 6'', by the looks of it), which makes it all the more impressive.

    Just watch the AE2008 final - there are loads of JJS "shouters" in that match.
