About
Technically, the term Jaeger refers to the tucked version of this skill, but the straddled version is so pervasive that the basic term Jaeger is usually understood to refer to the straddled version, with the modifiers tucked and piked added to describe the other shapes.

The straddled Jaeger is the most popular release skill on the uneven bars, owing to its relative ease and safety among D-value elements and the fact that it also fulfills the requirement for a grip change.

Value
D

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
