i don't do it because the kinds of ball you get from players far below your level are not the same as the kinds you would get from the players at your level. you could execute a perfect volley when facing a 2.5 level ball but that skill won't help you when you face a 4.0/4.5 level ball. thus, if i want to practice such a shot, I would practice with players at my level.
