Skill type
Dance

Known as
Split ring

About
Less popular (and less valuable—almost like those are linked) than its switch cousin, the split ring is still a D value and does have its adherents because of that, despite the difficulty of truly hitting the position. These adherents tend to be dance-element addicts, attempting to get as much difficulty as possible out of any D+ dance elements they can imagine, many performing it out of a switch leap in a non-rebounding series in the hope of connection bonus.
