    That's just something you have to learn to live with :/ we got the same problem in our gym, there's really not much you can do about it. Glasses dont have anything to do with that btw - It's annoying for all others as well It gets better when your anticipation gets better so you can estimate more accurately where the shuttle is

    Thumbs up

    The smash is by far the hardest to master. It takes a lot of technique and drills to achieve an effective smash. I found this book very useful for smashes and well worth the $$$....

    Just my 2 cents ... I'd post the book on here but I'd probably violate some international copyright laws lol

    I think crosscourt has the max chance to go wrong. Either it gets a lil' too high or a lil wide. I think twice before attempting such a shot.

    The crosscourt net, because there is no margin for error, and it has to follow a very tight trajectory to be effective. Backhand clears from beyond the doubles long serve line has to be up there for me, as well. I usually attempt a straight drop or a well placed drive instead.

    Actually I would say none of the above. The most difficult shot for me is the back court backhand drive to the opponents back court.

    I think the most difficult shot is backhand smash. How many "Taufik" in the world can perform this type of tricky shot?

    Perhaps this bizarre net shot by Peter Gade (first seen at about 30 seconds in)? Does he accomplish this purely with great wrist flexibility and a loose grip or is there something else I'm missing?

    I used to consider the backhand overhead shots to be the most difficult but actually, once you trust your technique and don't try to hit them too hard, they become considerably easier. Still, the backhand shots are not nice to be forced to play in singles since the recovery takes so much longer than from the forehand side.

    This time, I think I'll make a suggestion for the hardest shot that's a bit "out there". The serve is a vastly neglected part of most people's games and yet nearly all of us find it difficult to serve in doubles when our opponents are returning aggressively. Also, if you're having a shocker and your serve deserts you, it's incredibly difficult to find it again during the match.

    Sorry for the double post, it was too late to edit. I think I have an idea of how to play Gade's shot now; I'm not 100% that it's exactly the way he plays it but it should work. I might try it next time I'm on court.

    For me, I think the backhand clear would be hardest for me as I don't really know how to release the power properly.

    for me, its the jump smash. everything needs to be in harmony. from the shot preparation, lift off, hitting the shuttlecock and follow through. the wrong timing and form can easily ruin the shot. i always thought it was fairly easy to learn. im already on my 2nd jump smash training and im nowhere near my dream shot.

    Just played a kid, think he was about 14/13 and he did this to me in a game. . I find serving and net shots (cross court) the easiest, hardest for me is getting power but its getting better. Only been playing 6 months so still alot to learn.
    Seeing this skinny kid play hitting backhand smashes better than i can hit forehand just reinforced what everybody says its almost pure technique.

    I have difficult on all shots. smash not fast enough, clear not longer enough. make silly mistake on drive, and drop shot.

    for me, the most difficult shot is back hand clear (baseline to baseline), which is not shown in the poll.

    Backhand clear for me is one of the most difficult, but a good smash is also hard to master.
