My volleys are terrible, but I do "default" or "defer" to my backhand volley for balls close to the middle of my body. The one shot I dont like is the "too low for an overhead but too high to swing through" backhand volleys when im at the net. Those are really easy to send long, send into the net, or just send a floater to the baseline they can run down.
Even with all of this, Id still say my backhand volley is better.
