    Other than the above, the cut crosscourt backhand drop isn't too easy.

One such player is Punch Gunalan of Malaysia and the other is Bandi jeyan of Thailand. Check it out.
    Ray Stevens (England) could do a triple motion smash. First two was enough to bemuse you, and how he hit the shuttle before dropping too low, defied the laws of physics.

    There are a couple of others:
    Beetween the legs (facing forwards or backwards) careful !!

    And when facing backwards - a clear from the side of the body. (Racket sweeps down as if swimming freestyle, hits shuttle at ground level, then clears to the back of the court). Only ever saw that done once (Mike Tredgett, England, at the All England 1979) He also played county cricket, so had a heck of swipe shot.

    my hardest shot and the shot i'd most like to master is at 3:34 of this vid (hidayat diagonal clear when shuttle is behind him)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hedxjQ23Rk&feature=related

    i think the footwork to get back behind (or parallel to??) the shuttle and timing of contact + technique is incredible.

    I believe he lets the shuttle drop to just below shoulder height before contact??

    damn that shot is hard to pull off!

    looks like Gade was expecting the push to the net!

    edit: i'm now thinkin the hidayat shot is more of a cross court drive?

    IMO, I think that smash is hard to master but it is more about the jump smash, there is the full body coordination but when you make a crosscourt net, it is more about the work of the wrist and precision. So I think that the jump smash would the the hardest shot to master.

    Straight backhand smash now no problem, but not too powerful, and leaves me open to the reply because my back is turned.

    the reverse cut is the one i can't master. i can pull off about 1 in 10, but the other 9 are either off the frame or that obvious that its game over (if) it gets over the net

    To me.. for singles, I think the most difficult skill to master would be the overhead lobs, chops, smash and drops.. What is important to me is that the all of my overhead shots must have the same technique in order to make it difficult for the opponent to know where my shots are headed.

    As for doubles, I think the most difficult stoke to cover would be my backhand low serve.. I've been always playing with the forehand serve since 20 years ago and i'm taking a slow time to adapt to the backhand low serve as today, every serve which does not go in is a point..

    For me the hardest shot is jump smash. It's hard to bend your legs & get the timing to hit the shuttle. N off course, it must be a sharp one..

    I don't know how this shot is called. But it's something that I have done only once in my entire life.

    The shot goes like this ... when I go near the net and do a counter drop shot, and then my opponent clears the shuttle towards the rear court, and I have to literally run away from the net (of course with my back facing the opponent) to reach the shuttle at the rear and hit the shuttle knee level with my back still facing the opponent. Get it?

    Hitting through your legs is hard. My basic badminton is strong, so I decided to learn a trick shot. I struggled with it at first, but now I can do it quite well and it's surprisingly useful. One of my opponents was particularly upset when he thought he'd hit a smash through my legs, only for it to be returned and due to the fact he hadn't anticipated it, he failed to get to my shot.

    Backhand drives from the back of your court to the back of the opponent's is very hard too. If possible I avoid using backhand drives and move for a forehand or play a round the head shot.
