    im going to have to say that the hardest shot to master would be backhand reverse slice, for me anyways thats what jumps to mind. i can backhand slice way better and more consistent than i can backhand reverse slice.

    I think the crosscourt. I don't think I know what it means yet but I think I do.

    Jumping cross court backhand smash is the toughest shot of all. I haven't seen anyone did it yet.

    I don't believe there is such a stroke, because unlike a forehand jump smash a backhand jump smash has almost no follow-through.

    i believe consistency of shots is the most difficult shot to master... everyone can make a brilliant shot from every angle from time to time... but it takes huge amount of consistency to keep mastering shots in a way the are like you want them to

    Imo it is the back hand smash, getting the smash across the net is hard enough for me, hitting it with power and where i want it is almost impossible. Preety useless in doubles acctually if you can hit an overhead smash instead.

    Default How about "double motion" shots ?

    Think about it. The most difficult shot to master is the "double motion" types of shot. Most players have 1 or 2 in their game but to execute them effectively, I have only known of 2 players who did those shots very well. One such player is Punch Gunalan of Malaysia and the other is Bandi jeyan of Thailand. Check it out.

    peter gade had some good double motion/action shots, lots of other players do too the only thing is there not always point winners though. its something that has to be learned and developed by the player though since its hard to teach that kind of stuff, you have to be creative and mske sure its a good shot and deceptive to the opponent.

    Default most difficult shot to master

    Based on the consistency of getting good results, I would have to say any short net shot. Cross court net shot is relatively easy to keep close to the net and stay in the court. Near (straight) net shot is much more difficult to return while keeping it low to the net, i.e., not hitting the net, and not going too high and receive it smashed back.

    All the other shots are no problem, including backhand smash and crosscourt backhand drops, clears and smashes.

    The most difficult shot for me is reseaving a smash on my forehand side and trying to return the shuttle cross lob. It's not really a shot, but more a situation most of us will experience. On the backhand, a twist from our wrist would be enough, but the forehand is too slow compared to the backhand.

    They should put backhand clear up there. I think that is by far the hardest shot for most people especially cross court.

    I think its the straight net.
    The crosscourt net has a lot of room for error, you can make it slightly higher and it might not get killed.
    But a straight net, if its not tight enough it'll get planted in your face. Not enough spin and your opponent can do a lot with it.

    The most difficult shot you havn't though about - returning the shuttle when it's just dropped down the face of the net. The greatest returner, that I've ever seen of this was Ray Stevens, UK National Champion, back in the 70's. Make sure the nets are tied at the bottom, or you won't be able to achieve it.
