About
A progression of the ubiquitous full-twisting double back that is somewhat surprising in its recency (one would think someone would have had this named after herself before Mustafina), the 1.5 twist presents enough challenges in its blind landing that no one other than Mustafina has yet determined it worth the extra one tenth.
