Issue with the One Handed Backhand

Hi guys. I'm having some issues with the flat one handed backhand. I feel i have the form down (my raquet face is down) but when I hit it, its way too high and sometime feels like a lob. What do you think I should do? Any help would be appreciated.

Take a video of it and compare it to some pros backhands. Or post the video here. I'm sure people including myself will be happy to help

You're dropping the racket too low on your take backs, and probably tilting the head back too much. While some players can hit the low loop like Blake, it's more consistent for most to keep the stick high. Check out Gasquet's stroke.
