    What are you missing? Everything? Clears? Smashes? Drops? Pickups? Often if its one type of shot theres a problem with your technique whilst under preasure so regardless of practice you are not clearing the bad habit.

    Make sure you hit with your racquet's 'sweet spot', or tha middle area of your racquet. When you hit the shuttle at this area, the 'sound' that comes out usually sounds better and stronger. And of course, your shuttle is less prone to going off target.

    Mark the shuttle's cork end with some marker pen, and clear with that shuttle. After that, check the marking left by the shuttle's end, you can tell which part of the racquet face you hit the shuttle. Of course, this works only for light-coloured stringed racquets, best would be white.

    It also makes quite a difference to the flight of a shuttle believe it or not, playing in a hall that was predominantly yellow many years ago we used to blacken our feather heads, used to alter the flight length by upto half a meter.

    Er, that would be because you can see the shuttle better with "black on yellow" rather than "white on yellow". Since you see the shuttle better, you hit more accurately, and therefore the shuttle travels farther

    That could be part of the issue, but adding even a gram or two of weight to a feather affects its flight distance (I know because I wave added weight before).

    Yes, obviously; but marker pen will add hardly any weight at all.
