About
The full-twisting double tuck is an exceptionally common composition choice given its value as an E element, either as the opening and most difficult pass in an under-powered routine, or as the closing and easiest pass in a super-powered routine. It’s a friend to any and all.

Most perform it as a full-in (with the twist occurring in the first salto), though others will perform it as a full-out (with the twist occurring in the second salto). For most, the full-out is more difficult, though they are evaluated the same regardless.

Value
E

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
