About
The back 3.5 is among the rarest of the floor tumbling elements given its extreme difficulty to land completed in any kind state of control (only attempted by the most comfortable twisters) that renders the skill not worth its value. A F, it’s just a tenth higher than the far-more-attainable triple full—also rated the same as the DLO and a tenth lower than the double double tuck. Prejudice reigns.

The 3.5, however, remains a favorite of some of the more risk-loving Chinese gymnasts, who will solve the problem of the inevitable landing bounce by connecting a front pike out of it and only falling some of the time.
