About
The back tuck has never achieved the popularity of the layout stepout (largely because it is more challenging to execute out of a back handspring series), but it remains nonetheless a semi-frequently used composition choice on beam.

These days, it is primarily used as part of a mixed series in combination with some leaps to garner a tenth in series bonus, but some lower level elites will also use it in isolation to sneak another counting C element into the routine.

Value
C
