About
The lure of the Gomez is exceptional, worth a whole two letters more than the triple turn version, though that also contributes to its risk: a downgrade destroys intended the difficulty score. As such, the quad spin is the domain primarily of only those most confident in their twisting ability, or most desperate to get value from turns because they can’t tumble anymore. Or both.
