I have been hitting them with spin and power but a lot of them end up in the Net. If they pass, they are very hard to return as most of the players expect that the ball will rise. How should I improve the technique.
Note: I drop a lot when I have to hit any backhand shot. Also, I am a Backhand Dominant Player. I prefer to move the ball on the left side of the table.
The lifting against backspin is a difficult stroke to start with but the rewards if getting it right are huge.
It sounds like you have the basics well already. Play around with the trajectory of the stroke to keep the ball lower over the net while still maintaining the spin you are getting. If you want more consistency than you are getting now then you may need to compromise on the speed of the shot. Slow down a little.
Take a look at our tutorial on the Backhand Topspin Off Backspin for some more help.
