Clear-hip Shoot

Uneven Bars

Skill type
Transition (low-to-high)

Known as
Clear hip shoot
Clear-hip shoot to high bar
Clear-hip counter release to high bar

Completely ubiquitous about a decade ago, shoots to the high bar have gradually waned in frequency in elite bars routines because they no longer fit into the connection value permutations and have been downgraded to Bs, when most used to be Cs. It’s all about Paks and Shaposh skills, and much less about bails and shoots. We certainly still see them, but not in the frequency we used to, which means that the shoot versions that were always less common, like the clear-hip shoot, are very much endangered species now.
