peter gade's trademark shot
Does anyone know how to execute this shot?
I can't see from the video, but it looks like he swung to his right but the shuttlecock went left.

I think it's almost like a slice shot. the racquet moves across under the birdie from left to right, but the angel of the bidie cuts it so that the bird goes down the line.
you really have to be very fast to the net so that you have time to setup. wait with the racqut under the bird and as if ur dropping so the opponent will tend to move forward and at last minute, slice it down the line.

racquet is to the left of your left shoulder, angling toward the right of the net.
swing sideways at the bird.
before hitting the bird, change the angle of your racquet to being 45 degrees facing the ground INFRONT of you (so basically flat right and leftwise)
adjust your followthrough before you hit the bird to go slightly upwards instead of straight to the right side
your racquet hits the bird, and it should turn into a lift.
my interpretation of the shot, it works for me.

it's not really a trade mark of any bodies. lin dan does that shot quite often. and ignore the commentator (in the first clip), she's wrong. there's no double action, it's a hold and flick (with a sliced action). it's very deceptive because the racquet head goes one way, the shuttle goes the other, making it very hard to read.

Ugh.. I hate this shot. My friend mastered it.
Nearly every time I do a slice drop / drop, he pretends to do a netdrop and as I approach the net, he flicks it and the shuttle is way behind my back..

i'm just curious, but is it even possible to play the shot from the first clip with a double action AND a slice? you'd have to be lightning fast.

Again, I agree it looks that way; and if pressed for an evaluation, I would also say there's no double motion. But you must bear in mind:
- The video is terribly low quality.
- Pros have incredibly quick hands. It can be hard for an amateur player even to recognise a pro's deception; there's a lot going on in top badminton rallies that most spectators are unaware of. Gillian Clark, however, has experience of playing at this level.

The link doesn´t work for me, how is the video called?

Perhaps this can help out: a vid from the other side . In slowmotion with the help of windows movie maker so don't expect too much, only half speed ...
Turned out to be pretty funny as you'll find out

Great video; thanks. Love the zombie background noises.
Yes, Gill Clark was wrong here. There's no double action, only a masterful slice.
