Balls might be spun to adjust their bob (for instance, topspin and reverse-pivot in tennis) or direction, and players may cut the ball (hit it with a calculated racquet confront) to create such turn. The shuttlecock isn’t permitted to bob, however cutting the shuttlecock has applications in badminton. (See Basic strokes for a clarification of specialized terms.)

Cutting the shuttlecock from the side may make it travel in an alternate bearing from the heading proposed by the player’s racquet or body development. This is utilized to trick adversaries.
