    Dead smash. Very seldom do I encounter people who can return my dead smash(I am not that good! Do not misinterpret me. It is just that the angle and the speed of the dead smash makes it difficult for people to return it. ). That makes me so happy! Just between us BFers, I cannot return a dead smash! I am petrified the moment my opponent executes one! That is why I love it and hate it so much!

    I like a crisp, slow drop to the centre. If I perform this in doubles it seems to slow the pace of the game slightly. A really accurate slow drop can force them to lift, as any net reply will be killed by my partner. I then have free will. I can change the pace of my next drop, smash to their shoulder, etc. The key is variation. The only way I can gain control of the rally is by being consistent.

    I also like to follow up a smash down the middle with a drop to the middle. I can get into a good rhythm against slow net approachers with smash-drop-smash-drop-smash-clear-net shot (after they drop), and then let my partner take over at the back if their drop to the net was accurate enough not to be killed.

    Aleik.

    Heh! I think you and hardik18 should play against one another. That way, both of you get to do what you wanted.

    Default Tricking the other player

    I love it when people fall my racket fakes/body fakes. I'm practicing the overhead fakes, but then, it isn't really good, doesn't get people moving, just stuns them for a second. BUT, at net, fakes are deadly. Hold the racket out infront, if he moves forward, flick it, if he doesn't move, let the shuttle drop and make him run. Works on newbies like a charm, it takes them a dozen times to learn to not guess before i hit. The bring the racket back, then slow it down, then flick again, works wonders too, sometimes, don't flick if you see them running back. Pounce hard on the birdie, (even if its below the net), and just drop shot, but pretend you are going to hit somewhere in the back court, works wonders on people to anticipate too much. Rewarding feeling when you get them running the wrong direction. As well, pretend cross court drop but straight drop, or pretend straight drop then go cross court. Its pretty. My absolute favourite technique (so far).

    I joined the poll before reading the posts...

    I chose the dead smash coz given the opportunity, its the best way to end, potentially winning a rally. Opting to go far a fancy shmancy trick shot when you have a clear offensive smash opportunity will most likely result in you kicking yourself for not taking that opportunity after the shuttle goes back your way and prolongs the agony. In cases like these, id smash 80% of the time or drop as close to the net posts as i can 20% of the time.

    However, the fun part of the game is setting up ur opponents for this opportunity. The drops, slices, attacking clears, deception shots and etc... are all designed to give you that golden shining opportunity to put the game away with a 1 way ticket smash... just make sure to expect a reply coz in badminton, there is no such thing as a sure 1 way ticket If you would like to prolong the rally with more deceptive / tactical shots... then its your choice.

    Btw, im more of a doubles player and thats my 2 pesos worth.

    Cheers

    Backhand smash on the sidelines (straight style).....Very hard to detect and very hard to return

    Dead smash is also nice, but I just don't have the enough strengh to perform a really "dead" ones...

    I don't like wasting time at long rallys, so forehand smash at sidelines or along the center, and finish it once and for all.

    As for my backhand shots, they lack power and consistency, but if they ever land in, they are tricky to return.

    crosscourt overhead cut....either from left to right..or right to left..

    nothing more satisfying then seeing your opponent standing within a step's reach of the shuttle..but can only watch it land
