a) Just lay your hand flat in mid air and wait for the egg to drop on your hand?
b) Try to move your hand accordingly to where the egg is heading toward, so the impact of the egg and your hand won't be hard enough to break it.
Same goes for the shuttle, if you follow the shuttle with your racquet, it won't just bounce out.

say the shuttle is dropping straight down about an arms length in front of u. I try and put my racquet just to the side of it. Then as it falls gradually twist your racquet towards the shuttle, sort of like cushioning the shuttle. If you do it right you should end up with the shuttle on your racquet. Id make another vid but ive not got anyone to film it at the mo.

Thanks guys for that egg tip. That REALLY helped!

k well i know how to do the catch the bird on your racket via the egg technique. but i've never tried playing net shots in a similar motion. do you guys think it works? of course you dont catch it, but is that the same technique to make the bird tumble? i have horrible net shots. i just redirect the bird and it goes too high off the net and lands too closes to my opponent

I think we're going 'a bit' offtopic here guys...
But, to answer the latest question:
I don't know if it helps you out but, since my latest tip here was very much appreciated I'll just try to help you too..
To let the birdie tumble over the net you have to use, as called in tennis, a slice..
(Slice = opposite of topspin)
Don't use the same technique as in tennis though, because the move in tennis is tooo long..
Just at the moment of impact, or just before, do a short slicing movement..
Good luck on improving your netplay!!

Not a hard trick to master.Originally Posted by Bombshell
The key component that you have to be fast. What you do is, place the corner of your racquet down to the birdie so that it nicely would slide under it. Then with just a flick of the racquet(you want to get it going in a circular motion) it(corner of the racquet) will lift the birdie up from the bottom and there you have it. Practice makes perfect!

Hi, guys. I feel somewhat embarrassed reviving this old post.
I just want to ask, is it legal for me to use that "racket catching" method
in games. If it is, do you think it's deceptive?

you mean push the feathers instead of the cork?? im not sure about that, but as the flight pattern of the shuttle, this shot is near impossible, even a slice shot you touch the cork, so im inclined to say this situation will never actually arise. and even if it does it would probably be called as a fault anyways. dont concentrate on this lol, practice some more. summer holidays coming up, play play play lol gonna be at kelsey 48 hours a day....

I can't believe that I forgot that I can check the IBF rules.

see i dont think this is the case. if you wnat to conserve energy so much why do you pass the shuttle back to your opponent if it lands on your side? this scoop thing just looks flashy to me, but thats my opinion. i pick up the shuttle everytime afterall its meant to end up in your hand anyways. (good excersize....)
