    Anyone heard of a stick smash? It is another term we use for a Half smash. Short follow through, & steep trajectory landing just behind service line in the mid court!

    Not a net kill! We use the term for a wristy Half smash with little or no follow through from the Rear court. (less power and a steeper Trajectory than a full power smash). It might be worth asking Gollum as he has referenced it here
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ferrerid=47905
    and would definitely be more of an authority than me. In fact from his description I might not even be using the term correctly

    A "stick smash" is a variation of smash.

    As far as I know, the term "stick smash" originates from Denmark. I think the "stick" part is meant to illustrate the hitting action, which involves relatively little movement, with the arm staying quite straight (so I guess the arm is the "stick").

    In terms of power, it's a "half-smash" (i.e. reduced power -- not necessarily 50%). The idea is to clip the shuttle down steeply into the front part of the midcourt, using the wrist to control the angle. It's often used to intercept an attacking lift or clear: the player reaches up (and often backwards), typically with a block jump, to intercept the shuttle.

    I actually think that "stick smash" is more specific than "half smash". I would describe a half smash as any smash of reduced power; this could be done with a normal smash technique, as a surprise variation (essentially, a very fast drop shot). But I believe a stick smash must involve reaching up for an interception, with a relatively straight arm (straight because you're reaching).

    Maybe some Danish players could help us out here.

    Agree with you that we should keep things simple.

    However, when new ideas are discovered/introduced, new terms will be coined.

    Actually, when we talk about different terms used, we are talking about the different methods discovered/introduced.

    When talking about Grips; there is another one called the "Hammer Grip", which is different from the "Forehand Grip" and the "Backhand Grip" that you use.

    Let's have our BCers come in to describe the various grips.

    I have not heard of this Badminton term before.

    But I have heard many players swearing (all different foul languages) when they miss hit.

    I dont have contact with the association or pro players at the moment, so I cannot fully confirm the above mentioned.

    (Though I also for some long time have had the approach that when u r busy and perhaps in the middle of the court, u might not have time to make a full movement, so it becomes more like an around the head approach, relying on the pronation thing. For this approach concernig the speed, note that the game will be faster and u might reach the shuttle sooner than at the backcourt.).

    In my danish perhaps a little old material, it says "the same preparation as the clear".... and it is done from the backcourt. Actually it seems to me that it is a Jump smash, just without the jump, or u might call it a "normal smash", though the stick smash is, as far as I can see, no jump at all.
    BTW: "stick" is an english word lol

    I believe that this "Brush" shot is used at or near the net when 2 opposing players are challenging each other at netplay (it reminds me of a Table Tennis shot).

    BTW, at or near the net, it is great to brush the shuttlecock over the net quickly. It is also possible to brush the feathers (not necessarily the cork) to send the shuttlecock over the net.

    If I remember correctly, stick smash only involves very little arm movement. The power for the smash is mainly generated by snapping your wrist, more like ‘点杀’ in chinese terminology. This shot emphasize more on placement rather than speed. Some people termed this as half smash but somehow I don't feel that is accurate. It might lack the wooping sound of full smash but it is by no means much slower that the full smash.

    This shot is mainly use to surprise your opponent and needs to be taken as high as possible to create the angle for effective 'wrist snapping'. Using the racket head to clip the shuttle in downward direction to generate the velocity to kill the shuttle fast.
