That thing where deer do gymnastics

More or less nonexistent at the elite level as recently as 30 seconds ago, the stag ring has made a dramatic resurgence because of its now-essential B value.

In 2017, the code began to require that dance elements be of at least B value to receive CV when connected directly to D (or more) acro elements, creating a sudden run on the bank for B dance elements, of which the stag ring is among the select few. It’s the new connector’s dream.
