About
Far too simple to be used as a standalone element on floor, the front tuck is a connection pass favorite, garnering a tenth when performed out of a D element and two tenths when performed out of an E. Typically, it will be connected right out of a back 2.5, though the current trend in Chinese floor routines is to perform it out of an under-rotated triple full instead, earning two tenths in bonus and covering up the under-rotation. Win-win. Except for us. Lose.
