Backhand, I'd go with MJ, that guy with a Comet is the living definition of "smooth is long". Forehand, while many male players are developing a good game, I'd go with Sarah Hokom for smoothest, since she is forehand dominant, she can hit great turnover and anny lines with a forehand while most of the other players mentioned use the shot as a backup when they need a fade to the right, and the complicated wind ups can be confusing and unnecessary for people trying to learn how to throw with good form, even though the pro level players have learned to incorporate it for power.

I do not think smooth means what you think it means..



Sarah Hokom thrusts her body down in a violent jerking motion and then flings her arm underneath herself

Lizotte and Schusterick always struck me as powerful more than smooth. I'm amazed with the amount of people on here who have said Schusterick. I don't know how you could watch McBeth and Schusterick back to back and say Will is smoother.

Will and Paige for BH; Both exceptionally fluid

Backhand: MJ
Forehand: Koling

MJ's effort seems so low...anyone who can shape comet lines like that are both smooth and clean. I'd love a lesson from him. Hell, I'd love to just play a round with him.

He's not on the elite tour yet but my favorite BH to watch is Cyrus Fuhrman. Maybe that's just me showing favoritism towards the local talent.

Bob Honch (local dude) has the flat out smoothest form of anyone I've ever seen.

NT pros:
I think Philo has buttery form

Wysocki is more power/explosive than smooth.
