About
The back 2.5 is a favorite D skill, especially for—but not limited to—those who would rather never have to wrench around another double salto in their entire lives. The opportunity it provides to connect a front layout for an extra tenth renders it quite irresistible, particularly back in the connection-pass era when routines had to include a pass with two saltos. Might as well get some value out of it.
