About
A fairly rare skill that exists solely to fulfill the different-grip requirement (since there are many easier C elements to perform if the goal is just to count a C skill), the toe-on forward with 1/2 turn still has a couple adherents in spite of being a seemingly inconvenient way to meet the requirement. At the very least, it is more impressive and better integrated into the meat of routines than the more popular, tacked-on forward giant.

Value
C
