I have a question.

I usually always smash the ball with a closed angel without any top spin.

my friends that I play with say that u dont have any top spin in your smashes.

but almost everyone of them smash with a topspin.

now i can do both but i am better at smashing, 

so should i only smash when the ball is high ? what pro players do ?

The smash in its purest form has very little topspin on it.  It is very flat to ensure it moves faster.  This is usually done when the ball is around shoulder height or higher.

The topspin is a safer option when the ball is lower than shoulder height.
