    A backhand overhead cross-court drop I think sensibly is the most demanding shot ever.

    Not all shots are listed in here; would be nice to see a vote on all the shorts including backhand clear; backhand smash, backhand cross-court, etc...

    I agree! Backhand in itself is hard. But to do backhand cross court jump smash....boy, that's gonna be very tough! And we're talking about effective shots.

    Has anyone talked about smashing-slicing drop ? It hits like a smash - in straight forward swing, but the contact is on the side, the feathers, and hence the birdie travels "off course" across the court and drop in slightly further than a true drop.

    Especially during pressure time. Same one for me as well.

    That's one of my favourite shots . Although most of the time I disguise it as a clear and play a sliced drop in the "off course" front corner.

    One of my favorites. Especially nice if you impressed your opponent with an earlier smash so his defensive position is deep...

    Do u have a name for this shot ? Do u try brushing the feathers hard (to make it appear as u r smashing) ? If u r right handed, would it be hitting/brushing the 3 o'clock ? Any vid to share?

    You have the brush the shuttle hard otherwise it won't reach the other side of the net.(because of the slice)

    It's a sliced drop - appears to be a smash, but instead of smashing it straight, you turn the face of the racket and slice the shuttle hard. It's still a fast drop, but should go crosscourt near the sideline.
    You'll also need to go over the shuttle to get it to go down quickly (it's not a stop drop), so it's more like 2 o'clock for a right-hander.
    I'll see if I have some footage of it - but I doubt it^^

    Overhead straight slice, for me, is a hard shot to hit consistently, and I can pretty much hit anything.

    00:39 and 07:21 should give you a general idea of the shot. Please don't watch the 2nd game

    Same shot I thought you were talking about it's strange I got good at that shot simply by accident...

    What happened was, is that if I was not in control of the rally or was trying to anticipate slightly by standing up the court then if my opponent played any type of attacking clear to the RTH side then I would be struggling, but somehow I always seem to manage to swing my racket round and really cut across the shuttle and send it the other way. it's a great shot to be able to do cause it can get you back into so many rallies and in fact it can prove to be a winning shot or at least set you up for a kill especially if your opponent played a clear from deep in their court.

    Practice it
