About
Fun fact: this is the best vault. That’s not an option, just a thing that’s real. It is also criminally undervalued with respect to the Yurchenko layout full in the elite code, worth two tenths less despite how much more aesthetically pleasing it is. It should be at least the same if not 80 tenths more in order to promote some variety and avert its endangered status. This needs to be promoted as a viable alternative.

Thankfully, it does have a 10.0 start value in the NCAA code, but even there we have seen its frequency dwindling compared to other 10.0 options that aren’t the Yurchenko 1.5, and that’s just unacceptable, Veronica.

Value
4.00 (2022-)
