About
A favorite root skill of Romanians and Australians (for some reason), the basic clear-hip circle is used as a way of cramming another C element into a routine for those who feel confident they can finish it in handstand (and some that definitely don’t). As most gymnasts except for the very top bars workers will end up counting some—or a lot of—C elements in their routines, it certainly has its uses. It is quite common, though certainly not as common as the equally valued toe-on.

Value
C
