Hello. I have become active in badminton since june or july after not playing for almost 3 years. My problem is that whenever i try to smash down, the shuttle always go high giving a chance to my FAT friend to smash at me. Help me? Btw, what kind of shuttle should i buy if i want to train myself?? Give me the brand.

seems like u don't know the proper technique to smash im guessing =/
try asking someone who knows the technique to smash. Smashing down is not all to smashing, sometimes its about the timing ur putting in to the smash and how hard you hit(correct me if im wrong)
i think yonex plastic birds or feathered ones are good for practise but u need a feeder if ur going to practise smash. Its harder to train by yourself cuz no one is setting u up and if u set your ownself up then its not going to go in a good spot where u want to practise ur smash

first don't try to get the maxium power, only practice the technique of the smash and the when you dominate it then you increase the power of the smash, later try doing the jump smash for get a better angle

hmmm...you have to learn to smash using your wrist. Try look for some video.

First, can you clear well -- from one back line to the other?
If not, practise clears first.
If you can, then all you need is the same technique, but hit the shuttle when it is slightly ahead of you, so that you can make it go downwards. Concentrate on angle before power.

when you have flat smash,it mean that you are not really pushing the shuttle down enough

I used to have a similar problem. The issue is that when you are attempting to smash, you are not fully extending your arm. I am taking a guess that either you are making contact with the birdie at a lower height and/or your elbow is bent when hitting the birdie. I would suggest having someone or even a coach check out your smashing technique.

Sorry, can't help my itchified hands. Why type FAT friend? =D
Anyway, reach the shuttle with your racquet at the highest possible point, don't wait for it to drop too low. More angle that way. Then cock your wrist to bring it down. And of course practise. And practise. And practise. =)
Now please do answer my question.
