Double Tuck (Balance Beam)



Balance beam

Skill type

Known as
Double tuck
Double back

Until 2012, the code’s valuing of E dismounts over D dismounts for the purpose of awarding CV rendered the double pike a significantly more sought-after dismount than the pitiful little double tuck. The double pike still tends to be the chosen dismount for those opting for a double salto, but the double tuck retains many followers of its own and perhaps should have more considering that the one tenth gained by performing the double pike is usually thrown away immediately through chest position deductions anyway.
