Back 1.5

About
Given its C value, the back 1.5 has been persona non grata at the elite level, considered just too easy and formerly hit with a 0.2 loss in composition requirements for being only C value. With the elimination of the CR dismount requirement beginning in 2017, however, I could see the 1.5 dismount gaining in popularity because a gymnast would lose only one tenth in difficulty compared to the 2.5, which most if not all can make up on execution (and then some).
