    So my backhand slice is just fine but my forehand slice always moonballs! Is here something I'm doing wrong? Or my raquet is pretty powerful, could that be it? I doubt it though.

    Watch your racket face. I also shift my balance to the front foot and keep it forward.

    your racket face is to open, hit down on the middle of the ball........ you are hitting near the bottom of the ball

    don't hit too far out in front. almost the side of the body.
    hit the inside of the ball
    swing across the body, not straight out.
    don't open the face too much
