When I try to serve a reverse pendulum side backspin serve, I always serve it with the opposite [reverse pendulum side topspin serve].
This makes me REALLY confused!
This is a common frustration. It is difficult to get the bat into a good position to get backspin on the reverse pendulum serve.
You need to look at your bat as you are swinging through. You can do this with the help of a video. At the point of contact the bat needs to be quite flat and coming under the ball.
As I said this is an awkward movement because it is hard to get your hand and bat into this position. Lots of practice required on this one.
