About
An exceptionally rare and difficult turning skill on beam, the L 1.5 is currently the domain solely of the Dutch Spinderellas. Because why else would you? The D value does make it an appealing prospect for those looking to get difficulty out of turns, but it’s so difficult to control that human beings outside the Wevers family tend to opt for the equally valued double spin instead of the L 1.5 if they’re trying to get a D turn into a routine.

Value
D
