    if comparing all of them and to choose the best, it is not difficult when we look at their current smashing quality!

    it would be extremely difficult if we compare them during their prime time!

    so i would put them as follows:

    current:
    1/ lin dan
    2/ lee chong wei
    3/ wang zhengming
    4/ taufik
    5/ peter gade

    during their prime time:
    1/ zhao jianhua
    2/ lin dan
    3/ peter gade
    4/ taufik
    5/ lee chong wei

    in term of raw accuracy, I vote the veteran Peter Gade. Slice so hard that the shuttle goes down prematurely and often left his opponent stranded because the shuttle are already landed in front of their body, not going through them.

    But overall, I must say Lin Dan.. The power is there (if you guys often see him playing via,says youtube, sometimes there's an unique basslike "oomh" sound when he smash..)
    Plus no one could tell wether he want to smash it left,right,or middle.. On top of this, he has unreal late round the head smash quality.. (If players have their trademark like TH=backhand, FHF=jump smash, then this is his trademark I must say)

    These are two big smasher in singles during their prime time. Lim Swie King got to be something but he wasn't in my era, so I never seen any of his live matches before.

    1) Heryanto Arbi
    2) Ardy Wiranata

    Ardy Wiranata was a rally kind of player, he didn't possess good smash at all. Even Haryanto Arbi laughed at his smashes. He called Ardy BW smashes as 5 Watt, and his smashes as 100 Watts.

    Hmm, having watched most of these players at their prime, I would say 'effectiveness' a more crucial point than raw 'awesomeness' of their smashes.

    In terms of effectiveness :

    i) Zhao Jianhua
    ii) Lin Dan
    iii) Taufik
    iv) Peter Gade
    v) Lee Chong Wei
    vi) Lim Swie King
    vii) Heryanto Arbi

    In terms of pure 'awesomeness' of their smashes :

    i) Heryanto Arbi
    ii) Lim Swie King
    iii) Lin Dan
    iv) Zhao JianHua
    v) Taufik
    vi) Lee Chong Wei
    vii) Peter Gade

    To be fair, I can't say I have watched every major game that these players have played in but I have seen them play during their 'prime' years. At least on Live TV. And the summary is just based on the list of players above.

    I've omitted Yang Yang, not because he is not a good smasher, but the smash is not his main point of scoring points. In my impression, he's more concerned with getting the shuttle down in the most effective way, rather than plain 'killing' the rally. Which was why he was so successful in his prime. He had a very complete game. He smashed only when he needed to, not when he wanted to. You hardly see a 80+ % smash from him. It was always 'conserve-conserve-conserve'. Very controlled, point the shuttle down the line kinda thing from him . You probably see less than 10 of those 90-100% smashes from him in a 60 minute game.

    Hence, the glaring omission.

    i think heryanto arbi is the best,the most powerful smash from baseline...new era of player just use the smash when they got the half court shuttle.
