About
A rampaging shoulder destroyer of a skill, the stoop forward in L is rarely if ever seen in gymnastics these days, primarily because of the difficulty and scarcity of L-grip skills in general, coupled with the necessity of turning elements to get CV. Lacking twisting and therefore ineligible for CV, the Luo ends up being far less valuable than its E value would suggest and therefore not worth the extreme shoulder strain.

Value
E
