    Does a smash strictly have to be jumped to have the power behind it?
    I'll go out on a limb here but IMO that it doesn't. I don't jump mine. I regret that I lack the fitness to get airborne., and - if I could - I'd jump it just to get steepness and killer angles, but when I'm on form, it is a cannon! I have put a smash or two through Rexy Mainaky messing around playing halfcourt singles once (my proudest moment!). I really would like to get a speed gun on it and find out how quick it is... I kind of like my smash for accuracy too... the only worry is that if I have to retreat suddenly I don't have the option of smashing, whereas a more athletic player would be able to jump smash.

    First question: Do you know anyone who is similar.. or pros who don't jump much but pack a powerful smash anyway?

    Second question: Just a thought.. I really don't know why it is as quick as it is, I mean, it's not a particularly 'coached' smash, and I'd be damned to explain how I hit it, I just know when I connect with it properly! Not even got brawny arms like Popeye! He he heh. I think it takes a toll though, because now I've got some serious arm problems [biceps, a bit of shoulder and recovered from a back problem] [hence more time talking about the game than playing it]. My mates say it's a 'whole body smash', but my coach, who knows the game well says there's nothing wrong with it [just don't expect a long playing life as a smash happy player, he says!]. I'd like to do some things to safeguard from getting the same injuries again, I'm tempted to start going to the gym to build muscle to protect it, but equally I don't want to be overdoing it ....

    Oh, and my vote for smash goes to Zhao Jian Hua for efficiency. Great deception, power and timing. For sheer power it probably has to be Fu Haifeng. The man hammers the crap out of the shuttle... but wait...lol, think of Robot Wars, there should be the following categories:
    #STYLE:
    CONTROL:
    DAMAGE:
    AGGRESSION:

    Style: I'm going to be a purist and go for Zhao Jian Hua. Good at all types of smash. For modern players, Taufik. All the different kinds, and though his round the head is not so amazing, his backhand smash is a ****in' screamer!
    Control: Who's the most accurate? I quite like Lin Dan's accuracy... I can't think of an occasion where I've seen him waste them. He body smashes a lot for an MS player, suits the smash to the opponent, and when he decides to go wide, he goes for the line. Respect. Also, he jumps damn high, and is clever at making his opponents lift crosscourt... right into the path of the best round-the head smash in the business.
    Damage Has to be Fu Haifeng: I saw one smash clocking over 300 kph. Straight down the middle against Clark and Blair in the WC final. It bounced on the T and next bounced just behind the tramlines. Scary as ****, and he didn't even bother to jump that high... why bother when you're built like a grizzly bear and have already picked your spot???!!!
    Aggression: A difficult category, all the snarlers and growlers who are in your face before the smash, let the bomb drop, then fist pump as they put it away. I think Rexy was of this breed as is his protege KKK. [As am I, but I can't put my name in such exalted company... ha ha ha!] What do you think? Who deserves this badge of honour? Simon Archer seems a possible contender, as does Zheng Bo. Man, that guy is in your face. I love it!

    I believe you should add Zhang Jun for the aggression category...I find he's even more "IN YOUR FACE" than zheng bo

    a chinese commentator said during the 06 WCs that Fu managed to get one in at 346km/h, not sure if it's true but the guy sounded certain

    the speed of smash is not consistent everytime. Fu Hai Feng cannot get the same speed everytime. but one thing for sure is that his smash has the power consistently. a fast speed smash happens during the correct timing of smash.

    Hahahhaha, u try and see without going out of shape, he is human not robot like u quoted before, LOL ! ! I just feel the pictures abit exaggerate, as if they are jumping more than 80% from the Floor The photographer must be very good, and using a very good camera as well
