    He's a straight up catastrophe!!! When serving: "remember to take a couple of steps"

    I thought it was a coincidence he was standing outside, but then again, he has probably never actually played anything but gardenbadminton

    He even states that only the server can score points, yet he plays to 21

    This gotta be a comic of some sort...

    Backhand clear is also covered in Kevin Han's "Advanced Badminton".

    To make an example, my playstyle involves a lot around doing around the head which means that if pressured so much that I need to use my backhand, the more time I can buy myself the better. Hence it is for me VERY often best to return with a good high clear or a cross-court clear so that I'll have time to get back in position. The good thing about mastering more shots is though that sometimes I can "fake" being pressured by showing a backhand and the do a drop as my opponents move backwards.
    Yes , it would be much better if you can master the technique and clear your backhand from one end to another , but it will be completely useless if it goes as far to your opponent mid-court. unfortunately , I am one of them thats why I would rather play the backhand drop.

    But then again, there is quite the difference between "for me it is better to drop because I need to practice my backhand more" and "A backhand drop is the superior choice"

    That being said, I do agree with you that the backhand drop (especially to the middle of the court) is a VERY good choice. If you play it to the middle you can essentially just jump to your forehand side since 75% of the cases they'll lop it and in 24% they'll return with a lop in your forehand side. Even that 1% of the time where they play it to your backhand again is still salvageable by returning with a high lop to the back.

    I would like to post a video of my backhand clear but I haven't got a handheld cam. I wonder if my mobilephone video cam is good enough. That may help you guys.
