    What grip to use if I want to hit flat forehand from a high ball( lower than smash height , about chest-height)?
    Should I just stick with my basic Sw forehand grip? Or should I use continental , which I use for smash? Personally I think bh flat is easier to hit. I use continental for that and it's my basic bh grip , so I didn't have problem deciding grip there.

    keep your SW grip and swing with a flat as opposed to "low to high" motion. your backswing should be shoulder high; swing through as if you're trying to knock everything off a chest-high glass table without hitting the table; and finish over your shoulder like normal.
