    It's good enough to break fu haifeng and cai yun's defence. It's a good smash!

    Its good, but not even close to the best. Also, he only broke the CY/FHF defense after he got a short lift, very rarely from the base line.
    JJS was definitely the superior smasher of the two, and I wouldnt say he was the best either.

    Well for me JJS is one of the best definetely. Very effective in game. Not only power, he produce more sophisticated angle with his leap. His jump smashes are candy to my eye

    LYD needs a beast after JJS retired and here comes Yoo Yoonseong

    Not really a beast though...
    But hes good in other areas that make up for his less-than-second-best-in-the-world smash

    If Mohammad Ahsan isn't on the list, he should be - mental power, crazy angle, and they come in threes and fours.

    Hm. Cant say I agree on that. He has great lateral movement and can put on pressure, but in my eyes its Setiawans great setups that make him dangerous. He doesnt have that same ability Jung and Fu (and, for a short period of time, TBH) had to put it on the floor from the baseline.

    I know it's been seen before but I had to post this again Watching him smash with such intensity all the time really made me get into badminton a couple of years ago when I saw this match live. To see a MX80 KRP bend like that is amazing. And he used to use SW35 (KRP I guess) which is a monster of a racket.

    Although I do think FHF was slightly more effective in setting up his partner I still really like JJS.

    Hard Smashers in Badminton History as far as I know)

    China - fu hai feng / chai biao
    Msia - chong tan fook / CSK / tan boon heong
    Korea - Ha Tae Kwon / Kim Dong Mon / Jung Jae Sung / Ko Sung Hyun
    Taiwan - Lee Sheng Mu
    Indonesia - m.ahsan / Rexy M / Lim Swie King

    These are the players who have really hard smashes,considerably legend.
    But of course they are many other just that I forgot their names so I chose not to put.

    JJS on so many levels.

    First off, he has a height disadvantage which makes him all the more impressive.

    Second, Fu has the left-hander advantage... no fair!

    Third, although Fu may have the edge in power, JJS's form and technique is absolutely perfect whether he's jump smashing or doing a standing smash. Fu looks a little awkward on many occasions... legs flailing around and what not.

    And he always has that feeling of calmness surrounding him with a quiet, but powerful energy underneath. I actually feel that LYD is suffering a bit these days without his influence.

    But Fu and TBH are super cool, too


    All that having been said, I've just been watching some games from the 2015 Sunrise India Open......
    Ratchanok Intanon: 310km/h.....

    Am I missing something here? They must have introduced a new speed clocking method. I mentioned it here as well:

    While overcoming the height disadvantage makes it more admirable, it doesnt change the fact that Fu had the edge both in power and angle.
    Also, I've seen pretty similar amounts of mishits from Fu and Jung, and cant say Fu looks awkward very often on his smashes (he does in defense or drives, at times).
    To clarify - Fu uses his leg movement to add more power to his smash, they are not 'flailing around'. Same goes for basically all top players, with Fu and Jung having minor differences in their technique. Fu often raises his left leg fairly high at the end of the motion, especially moving into his backhand corner, which provides a counter-movement to his racket arm and allows for a slightly higher speed or range of motion.
    LYD actually does it even more, while Jung does it less.

    Never said JJS had more power than Fu, in fact I acknowledged that Fu has the advantage in power.

    We all know that the legs are used to gain more power. It's a given. Some players have extra motion in the legs. Fu is one of them. It looks awkward. You can argue the physics all day, but there is something to be said about efficiency of motion. Fu looks inefficient at times. The amount of motion in his legs doesn't always allow him to recover quickly when under pressure. It's evident in many of the games he plays.

    You don't have to agree. But it's true. Watch him.

    Mohammad Ahsan has to be on that list!

    To me, he's the best smasher currently playing.
