    its not really about beeing able to do the move its more about mastering it
    the hardest move to learn for me was the slice
    for mastering id say proper jump smash and beeing able to slice anywere on the court that means slicing at the net in order to make the shutter more offensive and less bouncy and slicing at backcourt making it deceptive

    by the way just sharing have you guys ever heard/see a sliced service ??
    haha yeah theres such a move it works like this you place yourself to serv to backcourt but as you hit the shutter you slice it making the shutter drop on the front base line .

    yes wholetthedog out there is slice serve, but that doesn't really count deceptive shot. Because i dont see any reason you can fool any1 with that shots. It goes slow, even ur opponent lean back he still able to have enough time to return the shot. But most adv players wont get fool by that. so yea. But i think if therez enough spin in your serve, your opponent wont able to make, place, the bird where he really want to it to be that accurate.

    by the way a service which is done low crosscourt at the side of the box travelling throughout the " fault zone" and dropping at the backcourt
    is it allowed ?? cos its a very good serv to put opponent in disadvantage

    Isn't that only the Sidek slice serve (hitting the shuttle the wrong way round in order to create a serve that is impossible to attack)? Surely a less extreme slice serve where the cork was struck first wouldn't be ruled as illegal?

    Slice serves are indeed legal....just the backward serves like the S serve arent.

    I firmly believe the hardest sot to master is the backhand clear from one end to the other on court. It takes timing and ENORMOUS power to pull off and quite helpful in singles when the shuttle is hit straight at your backhand.

    i would think that the backhand cross court smash is easier than the straight backhand smash since it has more room to go and will less likely go out as i saw a bunch of backhanders accidentally do

    I said clear becase the only shot I struggle with in badminton is the backhand clear as they only go to midcourt one of my best shots is the crosscourt net and the drop so I was quote suprised to see that nearly 700 people thought it was hard to master

    smash/jump smash would be hardest. and i have better lifts and net shots with by backhand compared to my forehand.

    The drop can never be done right due to the variety of techniques available. Rainbows and fast drops and slices etc.

    i would definately say crosscourt net shot is the hardest to master.
    without sounding bigheaded, i like to think i can do all the shots in the poll reasonably well, even crosscourt net, but that one is definately the hardest one to get right. there is such a fine balance with that shot of too much/too little power thats its nigh on impossible to get right 100% of the time

    It's not on the list, but it's very important - my high and low serves aren't very good. I can carry them out successfully, but my high serves aren't very strong and don't go very far, and my low serves either hit the net or fall just before the service line D: I've always bent my arm at my elbow too when i high serve which i really need to correct but i'm stuck in my old ways.

    On the positive note though, my serves are slowly getting better, and my backhand lifts and forehand clears are strongest, my smash not far behind. I think the problem with me is that i don't know how to play the subtler shots whereas i'm much more comfortable with the stronger shots.

    A bit unrelated but I'm just curious about how tall you are (for your serves) and how far do you stand behind the service line on the low serves?
