Hi all, I watched the video below, and it got me thinking about the point of exertion. I think we can all agree that you want to exert/tighten at the closest point of contact but I've seen in it described in two similar but different ways. 1. Exert very close but BEFORE the point of impact and relax after. The exertion causes the racket to flex and propel the head forward and strike the shuttle. The momentum of the flex will cause the follow through/the motion that is 'imitated' as described in the video. 2. Exert AT the point of impact and follow through. The force from your pronation and contact with the shuttle will cause the racket to flex and carry through to the bird. I believe that 1. is correct since 2. sounds more like 'muscling it'. Would like to hear some thoughts about this.
