    Default Spin matters in smash

    Sorry in advance. I made the tile a certain sentence to attract you.
    Actually I think it's more of a question.

    From my experience, added spin in smash shot makes difference for the receiver.
    I'd like to gain some angle from others.
    Do you think added spin matters in smash? What kind of difference?

    My personal experience:
    Adding counterclockwise spin makes the shuttle travel faster at the receiving point.
    (the shuttle travel a little longer)
    Adding clockwise spin: low spin force- shuttle travel longer & higher but slow.
    high spin force- shuttle travel fast at first but start losing its
    speed & drop very fast after a certain distance.

    Correct me if there's anything wrong.
    More insights about the relationship of shuttle speed and spin rate will be appreciated.

    I would say he's talking about slices and reverse-slices, although I could be wrong.

    If that's the case though, in smashes I personally mostly use slice when I smash from my forehand corner diagonally and from my backhand corner straight down the line if I want the shuttle to have more of an angle, land quickly, and perhaps force my opponent to take a step forward and not only to the side, at least that should be my intention I think, the execution is a different matter altogether . Don't think I smash with reverse slice that often although I'm sure the pros sometimes do, if only to keep things mixed up.

    Also, if you're a lefty you can, if I remember this correctly, slice the shuttle more heavily because the feathers are all positioned in a certain direction that makes a left slice cut the feathers "more", if that also implies that a reverse-slice effect works in the opposite way I don't know.

    So I guess you are right about the stuff you wrote...?

    Thank you for your reply.
    What I want to know more is about the mechanism behind this kind of behavior.
    Seems not much aerodynamic research look into this area.
