    Just slighty slower than the shuttle is moving..at the end you should be 'surprised' to see the shuttle just lying on your stringbed for the first time
    Thanks! I'll try doing that tomorrow

    not sure if it'll help much, but you can read my brief description on page 3, it's post #52

    I agree with the egg idea. It's like... If an egg were to be drop from a very high distance and you were told to catch it without it breaking. Will you.............

    a) Just lay your hand flat in mid air and wait for the egg to drop on your hand?

    OR

    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.

    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'd say netshots are more like a sideways cut.. i could be wrong though.. i dont know if all my techniques are right

    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!!

    Default Not a hard trick to master.

    Lol. I have been playing for a long time too and you are not the only one who has the same problem. I have friends that face the same dillema. It is not a hard trick to master actually.

    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?

    Oh sorry, I wasn't precise. I mean is it legal to "push" the shuttle from that technique, not hitting the cork but the feathers. Would that still be considered "catching?"

    Ok, thanks!
    I can't believe that I forgot that I can check the IBF rules.

    I disagree. We should use more of our energy for the game instead of picking up the shuttles.

    it's harder to bend your legs than your waist usually, especially when you're start to get tired. once your legs reach a 90 degree angle, it takes quite a bit of extra effort to extend them. so picking up the bird is easier, as well as slight knee-bending plus use of the waist is quite energy efficient

(good excersize....)
    Renkinjutsushi is right, it's really tiring to pick up the shuttle with your hand all the time.

    Even if it looks flashy, to me.. It's fine. There's no reason for me to keep myself from doing little scooping trick.

    That's true , you may not know it , but it gets really tiring picking up shuttlecocks off the floor once you've done it a lot of times .

    I've tried this "scooping up bird w/h racket thing" and it works about 25% of the time for me . The saying goes " practice makes perfect " but whenever I try to scoop it up and misses , the person on the other side of the court would kind of roll their eyes or something so I always end up picking it with my hand so I won't waste time ( they might think I'm stalling or something ) .

    believe me, i couldn't do the scooping trick until a few months ago.. and it was tiring picking up birdies by hand every time you miss the shot.. VERY tiring... picking the birdie up with your racket is that much easier
