Recently I saw a comment about a backspin smash. How is it even possible to get backspin on a smash?

Hi Jasper,

The Backspin smash is only possible when the ball is higher.  It is a very risky stroke because the ball will tend to float and can often miss the table.

You can come down on the ball in a backspin action but this is a very unreliable way to smash and not one that I would recommend.
