About
An exceptionally rare and difficult turning skill on beam, the L 1.5 is currently the domain solely of the Dutch Spinderellas. The D value does make it an appealing prospect for those looking to get difficulty out of turns, but most non-Dutch opt for the equally valued double spin instead of the L 1.5.

Value
D
