    Can someone tell me about the smash?

    I've been courtside with some high level players and everytime they strike the shuttle it sounds like a circusmaster cracking a whip ( That cracking sound!) or like a explosive gunshot!..( That explosive sound!)

    That moment is it

    pure power ?

    Wrist + Power ?

    Wrist + power + timing ?

    Wrist + power + timing + good footwork ?

    Any thoughts on this ? any feedback from national /international players/coaches would be greatly appreciated ?

    PS your hear that sound when a goodplayer jumpsmashes properly!

    Do a search for "smashing sound" "smash power" "perfect jumpsmash". If you still don't have the results you're looking, start your own thread to have people help you. Just do a search first.

    I can do all the shots listed in a decent manner above if my opponent is slower than me and I can move to behind shuttle fast. Footwork is the ONEs, and fast footwork will make you very very solid.
    taufik hidayat does the best in backhand smash.... try looking at it in youtube

    Cross court net. But I find the backhand cross court tighter than my forehand. Often my forehand will go into the net, while the backhand cross court will be tight to the net and out wide.

    all the shots above are pretty easy, backhand smash would be the hardest for me, takes a lot of wrist strength and triceps

    EDIT -

    A backhand overhead cross court jump smash performed while facing the back of the court.

    THAT is hard.

    My crosscourt nets tend to go suprisingly well on the forhand side.
    Let's not talk about my backhand crosscourt nets

    IMO, other than the different types of shots, I find that footwork is the hardest to master.

    I would say that the most difficult shot for me is the BCCD, because if not performed well, its almost as if giving the point away.

    Some talk about smashes, my smash is very hard, and I have only recieved it back a few times, because I worked on my smash when i was still a beginner in badminton. I have never been able to do a standstill smash, I started with the jumpsmash as it came quite naturally. It is by far my best move.

    Lately I've been working on my drop, because i had much success with it beforehand, but lately its not working well.

    By far my BCCD needs work, I rarely use it, and when I do its always smashed or perfectly placed which makes me lose a point.

    Cool

    Working HHHHHaaarrrdddd!!!!! to master the footwork...and to get that SSSppppeeeeddddd!!!!


    We all know its about that basis of fitness and Speed..and fighting to and through that pain..


    you may not win every rally or every point but after a few hard rallys in a game the levels of fitness is either 6 -7 point either way...

    ( you know you want to get to that shuttle one more time, pick up the pace one more time, get behind the birdie one more time, Powersmash one more time, but the body wont let you deliver that last killer blow).

    Dont we all love it!!!!!

    I dont think that any of us can 'master' footwork, because even Lin Dan hasn't mastered it yet. :O

    LCW? Moves around like greased lightning even though he's only like 5 feet 7. It's up to interpretation though.

    Nope.. sometimes he just stops and let the opponent get a point.
    Actually to be able to master footwork, a person must have unlimited energy and never get tired. No one can master it without that.
