When do we use the clip hit?

The clip hit is a quicker hit than the full drive and is often used for speedy shots and quick passes when it is not practical to push, sweep or hit the ball.

The clip hit comes in very handy as the backswing is shorter that a hit, instead more similar to a push but propels the ball a lot faster and over a greater distance, therefore arming players with a greater range of passing and shooting.
