The humble rudi. And it typically is quite humble. If you watch enough NCAA (where the rudi is a D), you learn to hate it quite quickly. It’s C value in elite has made it a much rarer choice, and that’s fine.
As for the name rudi, it’s part of the front-tumbling terminology that gymnastics inherited from acrobats. You know it’s from acrobatics or trampoline when it kind of sounds like a word a three-year-old made up. (I kid…fliffus isn’t stupid sounding at all…) The term barani indicates a front salto with 1/2 twist, with rudi indicating 1.5 twists and randi indicating 2.5 twists. The rudi takes its name from Dave Roudolph, a trampoline acrobat in the 20s.
