    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?
    You mean a backhand taken very low and very late?

    no. It's not a backhand. it's actually a forehand, except that you're hitting the shuttle backwards at the same level as your knees. see the attachment (sorry ... i'm not an artsy-craftsy person )

    OMG! The pic is really embarrassing. I only used MS Paint. I tried to draw a 2-D man with the mouse, but it was really difficult. Thus, I just used stick drawing. I hope it depicted my description.

    Anyways, you say you've been in this situation several times? Were you always successful with the return? Wow ! You've gotta teach me.

    practice doing a crosscourt with this shot...and sometimes you could get lucky! If possible, don't forget to add a backhand feint(pretending to hit it with bachand) before the shuttle drops lower and you hit it from knee level...hope you get what i mean

    wouldn't that be much harder? I mean, in this situation, you're stuggling to reach the birdie at the rear court. There wouldn't be any time for you to do a "backhand feint."

    maybe i put it in a wrong way....the feint isn't done elaborately...instead it's just the preparation action for a backhand clear...

    doesnt matter, it is still a useless shot, only for the look.
    If u r back into a corner for that desperate shot, that shot is useless.
    I would still try to try use my backhand shot.

    Couldn't Agree More! Although I'd say if you "master" it, that will be a surprising shot. Surprise mean : benefit!

    I agree.. I've practised this shot so many times for fun and for showing off, but this trick only works against beginners because they'll usually hit it back at me anyway.

    yea agreed....if you can hit the shuttle(with this shot) while it's right beside you, you probably had time for a backhand when the shuttle was higher

    no time to make a high backhand shot here because the shuttle went past you already, so you have to run like hell to reach it at the rear court, only getting there when the shuttle is already low.

    This may be useless, but it's still a desperate attempt to keep the rally going.

    yea...but i'm definitely not talking about a really high backhand shot, i'm saying if you use backhand even after the shuttle have passed your body, you'd still be taking it higher + earlier than when you're doing the trick shot. Because you don't have to run so near to the shuttle when using backhand.

    Nevertheless not many people can execute a good backhand in such disadvantageous situation...so that 'trick-shot' is the lazy way out.

    what i was trying to say in my previous post was that if you can get there in time to perform this trick shot, you most likely could have hit it with a backhand earlier. If the shot passed you so fast that you wouldn't be able to reach it with backhand, this trickshot wouldn't help either.

    I would say the most difficult shot to master is Backhand Smash

    Couldn't agree more! How many people can do a back hand smash compared to the crosscourt net (the hardest one in the poll) I would definately say the Backhand smash is WAAYY harder.
