Drives. This power hit is used to aim at someone. This badminton shot is very low and is hit to the front of the body. In this shot, the opponent should prepare themselves with their racket up. This shot is very precise and quick, a good reflex is very useful to counter this shot.

Long Drops. Commonly used from a badminton shot done at the back part of a court. The receiver should hit the ball at high before it hits low and by then it is already too late. When you want to counter this shot, hit it low, you want it to land just over the net. Hitting it high would cause your opponent to smash it.
