Not something a whore does for money…or candy!
The appeal of the illusion turn comes from its D value. And nothing else. It’s worth a tenth more than the L or Y turns, though still is such a risky proposition that only the most confident turners tend to attempt it. Or should. Even then it occasionally has a tendency to look a little “crab in a garbage disposal” as the gymnast desperately tries to flail herself back over the beam somehow.
