Handspring pike (front)

About
The 3.80 value of this vault that leads to its never seeing the light of day is an abject travesty. Give me this glory over a Yurchenko full any day. In general throughout the code of points, piked elements are under-rewarded with respect to tucked elements, in several cases receiving the same value as each other, or in the case of this vault receiving only 0.2 more than its tucked counterpart even though the regimented upgrade per vault is 0.4.

Value
3.80 (2022-)
4.20 (2017-2021)
4.60 (2006–2016)
