    I find that most backhand variations of shots are difficult to pull off well. The backhand clear and reverse slice are the most difficult for me. I hit a decent backhand smash, sort of, but probably not with the proper technique, heh.

    Anything behind me on my backhand side. These are the hardest shots bar none technically & physically. There's a guy in our club that has very strong backhand shots from that position. You hit a great drive deep to his backhand and tactically you expect a weak return but somehow he is able to do a low down flat drive cross court to the backhand back line. Because you're coming forward and expecting a certain return seeing the shuttle flying past your ear at high speed catches most off gaurd and he wins the point.

    myself personally i found the drop shot was the hardest 1 to get right. I had gotten the smash and clear pretty good when i started but i just couldn't figure out the drop. My prob was i wasn't hitting it in front of me and once i did this it was only a matter of practice.

    Some times my drops are deadly and other times are hitting the net or going too close into the court.

    I guess i will just have to practice practice practice.

    Although every stroke in badminton needs to be mastered to be consistently executed, I'd rate two shots as the most difficult-to-master.

    The first is the cross-court backhand drive.
    If perfectly done in doubles, it blazes unstoppably across the net headed for the right shoulder of the player in the opponents' backhand half.
    If imperfectly done, it travels upwards right across that player, allowing him to effortlessly smash the shuttle into your partner's chest.

    The second is the tumbling drop, especially in the left forecourt.
    If perfectly brushed, the shuttle is a delight to behold... it rises just enough to graze the net-cord and then tumbles down skimming the net as it heads for the floor.
    If imperfectly executed, the shuttle floats up well above the net cord, allowing your opponent a ripe sneer and an opportunity to take a massive forehand swipe at the bird, to crack it right into your forehead.

    I'm one of those who can consistently demonstrate these shots at their imperfect best.

    In short, I've mastered them.

    Read carefully. Oldhand is actually being self-deprecating, not self-aggrandising.

    I see that drifit caught the drift quite well.

    Jerby, I'll be needing your particulars.
    I am a journalist and I'm gonna sue you for defamation

    Maybe they'll take away your racquets

    thing is, while it's easy to serve that shot, it's incredibly hard to get it perfect. that's what i think Wayne is trying to say

    same, backhand smash is the hardest of all for me to master, the rest are ok. my backhand smash (straight or crosscourt) probably around 70% successful. JUmping as well, normally it works because the opponent is not expecting that kind of shot, they would come forward to expect a drop shot instead or a clear.

    For me:
    1. Deceptive cross court net shots (dead duck shots when done improperly)
    2. Backhand sliced drop *both sides*
    3. Service returns.
    4. Backhand smash (only because I don't have the chance to execute it)

    Cross court net plays on doubles are dangerous shots, hence you need to have both deception and a good return shot. Most of the time, the shot ended up getting killed for me

    Backhand sliced drops.. I've never managed to learn it properly.

    Service returns: Mix of deception and good shot choices. To drive, net, kill or clear, that is the question.

    Backhand smash.. mine ends up... under the net, on the net, or a really high shot... in other words.. dead.
