About
The queen of the indirect tumbling pass connection, the back 1.5 is frequently performed with step-out at the elite level, proceeding into a round off, back handspring, and a tumbling pass of E or greater value for 0.2 CV. It is also occasionally seen in direct tumbling passes, but regardless, its usefulness in bonus combinations has seen its popularity withstand the elimination of the connection-pass requirement.
