Thanks for the great feedback!

I went out practicing yesterday and hit ~500 backhand shots while paying attention to my positioning, footwork, weight transfer and uncoiling into a shot. I feel that my backhand is much stronger now.

>C_Urala: On both your FH and BH, your front leg looks like a break. You use it more to stop your forward movement and to retreat, than to put all your weight into the shot.

Question: isn't a shot when you use front leg as a break after a shot is made (with the proper balance transfer, of course) a legitimate one? I mean, it is not as powerful and controlled as a shot when you literally move forward, but oftentimes I do not need to move forward in a rallies.
