How fast has Taufik hit shuttlecock with his backhand?
Around 260+ km/h.
yeah, that's quite extraordinary. If i have a chance, i would wanna learn from him.
You will have the chance - just WAIT.
hehe, kay, that's very nice
It may not just skill only. He must have very strong wrist. Otherwise, the other top player like LD, LCW and PG should be able to do it also.
If i'm right it's not 260, but only (well only, it's not weak lol) 200 km/h. Still it is very fast. Takes a lot of practice to be able to hit it that hard.
someone know for sure?
my gut feel is this figure is too high
Right. 260 is just around the usual speeds of forehand smashes from top shuttlers.
You can check the 200km/h back-hand smash maybe in 2005 or 2006 WC.
Ask Smash_master I guess....though it looks as fast as a forehand smash just less angle.
I saw the video, but it didn't display the speed. Controversial. It doesn't look like fast enough in my view.
Let me find another video, 2006 WC vs Chen hong....the reading was over 200km/h I remember...
Check the rally starting at 9:00....there are 2 big hits, Taufik's backhand smash, and CH's jump smash, and the reading is 261km/h.... one of them was that.
it was just a might have been(kevin han comment)but certain . It could be CH forehand smash.
Yeah... I'm still recalling and can't find the right video on Youtube; maybe I'm wrong. It should be around 250km/h not 200km/h.
WC 2006 the speedgun was faster than it is today.
CH smashes 300+ km/hr and LD 300+km/hr
So i was right
but you know that we are talking about backhand smash
