    Default Unorthodox badminton shots

    How about behind the back shot,

    and the between the legs shot,

    or the seldom seen Backhand jump smash?

    The hardest for me is the drop. I can smash and clear pretty well but when it comes to drop shots, I usually stuff it up by hitting it a bit too high and my opponent would just smash it and win the point.

    However, I'm practising and I'm slowly getting there!

    I'm not alone I see...

    Drop shots and all their variations are by far the most challenging to master. When you're all pumped up and gung-ho, smashes and drives come naturally, but it takes guts and a clear head to properly plan out and execute a well-placed drop shot. I'm fascinated by the variation a drop shot entails, too, especially with the different slices.

    Backhand smashes are tricky (it's tough to get the angle just right) but I don't think they're all that important. How often does one manage to be in the perfect position for a backhand smash anyway? In my experience, not very often.

    When it comes to backhand smashes, I can only do it when I jump - even still, I usually stuff it up and hit the rim of the racket. It's basically impossible for me to do it standing.

    When I jump, I swing the racket wildly, hard and downwards (probably not a good idea ) but unforunately, I can't really do it. I think I'll stick to forehand smashes...

    Default Drives

    I think the most difficult shot to master is the drive. Especially at a high level of badminton, defense is very difficult, with drives coming at your body at all different angles, There really is no way to "master" the drive. In my opinion, many coaches do not teach enough racquet speed drills.

    Really, It's where a lot of players get burned in doubles and in recent years, singles. The opponent hits a shot to their body that they cannot return. So I think that no one can really master the drive because there are so many variations of that one shot.

    One of the hardest shots to master is to execute a strong backhand smash and also low backhand service return when the server flick serve right behind your back.

    You can include all the shots if you put it that way -- all shots can never be mastered, only improve upon. Drives are 'bread and butter' shots for doubles players. It might sound truer if you're talking from a singles player's perspective but these days, drives are used more often in singles games too.

    slice the shuttle so accurately that you hit exactly on the line and catch your opponent offguard..seen someone doing it recently so well. Looks easy, but when you try it it is not..

    not learning by slicing watermelon first..

    after you have reached a certain standard, backhand shots like clear, smash, drops would become easy. the hardest would be slicing from the overhead and slicing straight, in chinese we call it "pi1 sha1 or pi1 diao4".

    oh, what about backhand crosscourt slice?
    i've attempted it a few times before but i dont even know what i was doing. hahahahhaa

    For me it`s clear. I lost a lot of matches because of it was to short.
    Plus u dont see it on court.
    If u can clear to the backline constantly in the right height thats a good safety for your game.

    for me, getting the consistency and accuracy of my drop shot was harder than probably anything else. Try dropping from the base line, cross court, and see if u can hit the singles alley line every time you drop, trust me, its hard.

    cross court net drops are okay...they are not that difficult to master, imo.

    -_-
    I put striaght net because returning tight netshots without having to resort to a crossnet is a SKILL. tight meaning almost netroll tight.

    i think its the jump smash, but thats not an option, so i vote smash...
    clears are decently easy,
    lifts are really easy,
    i drop for most of my game, thats easy,
    I CANT JUMP SMASH THO. i either never hit it, or it becomes a jump with a slightly downward angled drive,
    smashed are decntly easy tho,
    my drives are great, due to my fast reflex...from playing CS lol

    lifts are easy only if you are taking the initiative to lift :P
