    I can do all the shots listed in a decent manner above if my opponent is slower than me and I can move to behind shuttle fast. Footwork is the ONEs, and fast footwork will make you very very solid.

    i've seen a pro do a jumping backhand cross court smash!
    hahaha, and he pulled it off as well, mainly because the opponent wasn't expecting it.

    as for me, given the choices here, my vote apparently is the majority vote.
    i'd vote for backhand smash as well, if there was such an option.

    it's not how hard you smash, it's wre you smash. A hard-hitter friend of mine (who's a lot more experienced and older) said:
    "smashing hard rarely gets you/me the point, it's placing your smash that's important... though the harder you smash, the less you have to worry about placement..."

    I can't do drives, but BCCD is hard as well.... my smash is only hard enough to finish off rally... can't really pound the opposition with a smash...

    jump smash, the timing is very difficult and takes a lot of hours of practice to finally get it right and hitting harder then a regular smash, every other shot is easy for me i guess i have a lot of touch control because i love tight CC dropshots.

    I think doing all these shots are not that difficult, the most difficult is to fine tune them.

    I personally think that a drop shot from the baseline is probably the most difficult to 'master'. First, you will have to do a deceptive wrist movement, then you need to correct your wrist angle, then you finally adjust your touch for the drop......... I can always do it, but then maybe half of the time, the quality of the drops is not good at all, some even end up into the net since you always want the shuttle to be close to the net as always. It may not be that critical for singles, but for doubles , the margin of error is much less.

    i think backhand full/crosscourt clear is the toughest to master. It required both power, proper stroke sequence and timing. Full clear i mean shuttle landing 1-8 inches from the back line. Anything shorter than that is useless clear as it will be hard to defend the smashes that come afterward

    For me, the toughest shot is a back-court-backhand-behind-the-back-full-cross-court-jump-smash. I don't know why but it hurts and I never succeed...

    mastering the backhand crosscourt drop and backhand clear came at the same time for me.
    backhand crosscourt drop is actually not hard to execute, but if you try to do it with extra slice and deception like the pros, then it's hard. backhand crosscourt half-smash is hard. it's like a fast drop(but faster) that lands around the service line, maybe a little behind.

    backhand clear is definitely difficult to master. because most of the time you're executing it, you're actually in quite a bad position. the ball is either to far to your backhand side, or it has already gone behind you. shuttles that have gone behind you is harder to clear with backhand, but it is so common that most of the time we hit a backhand the shuttle's actually behind you. so far i can do 3 quarter court backhand clears pretty consistent, but baseline to baseline would depend on how good the shuttle flies, and how early i get to it

    Backhand drop isn't THAT hard. Just the crosscourt part
