Thread: most difficult shot to master
01-31-2009, 04:22 PM #324
Backhand clear is pretty difficult. Back hand smash isn't bad too.
I'd pick the back hand smash above all; accuracy, consistancy and power. These are damnly hard to get from this shot.
I also saw a crazy dude getting a backhand jump smash. And I was like: it exists?
backhand cross drop near the net isn't this bad; when I used to play often, every drop from every position on every side to every place were almost perfectly mastered. These aren'T moment shots; once it's learnt they go as easy as hell. But they tend to make you lazy when you play on a lower level. Sort of forgot the other shots as my tricky game worked so well. LOL

I mastered to an impressive scale much of these drop just by doing them again and again. They come in naturally and you end up always doing the very same motion. Just try this shot over and over. After a weak or two you'll be on the spot at every shot.

crosscourt net...its not always the power which is difficult touch and placement is harder.

My 3 are backhand cross-court clear, cross court jump smash, and backhand cross-court drop. Just mine, it will differ for others..

for myself, I think an off-speed smash because I always hit too hard or too little.

has to be smash
using a fast motion to smash as fast use alot of power and fast concentration

Some of the hardest shots to master are:
1) Cross court slice
2) Tight net shot with spin
3) Cross court net shot
4) Back-hand left corner, when someone has driven the shuttle fast past you
Clears, smashes, drop-shots are all relatively easy to do, and the more you practice them, the more consistent and accurate you will become.
A perfect serve can also be very difficult to master, but that is something that should be practiced every time before you start, or when you have some free court time. Practice short serves, and deep serves, making sure that someone is there to return them so you can gauge how good the serve is.

Backhand Clear High and Long that the return should land at the opponent's court edge. Especially if you will hit the shuttle on the downward path already below your waist. If the opponent is on the intermediate level, he/she can anticipate a weak return that will be responsed by a kill/drive to the open lane!

I'm not a beginner - play jump smash shot or spinning net shot pretty well, easily do flick serve to the rearmost line - BUT I found it very difficult, to play CONSISTENLY long and exact clears, when I become tired.
I lose concentration and they starts to get too long or wide. When I try to adapt, they get 3 feets too short or inside, so opponent has better smash conditions.
Other strokes as drop shots or smashs, defence, net shots, lifts or drives go more or less half automaticly, when tired out - they work as on autopilot. But clears are not good on autopilot.

For me tumble net. Could never do this properly. Not my favourite shot. Would attemp once or twice if openent was far enough away from net and I was close to net.

For me, the most difficult shot is the off speed cross court smashes and drops. Because I can not immediately hit the sweet spots, but as the match progresses the shots become more accurate. The angles are hard to master as the speed and trajectory is different each time.

For me it's smashing. I just can't get the hang of it.
