The peak of this trend toward acrruing floor difficulty almost entirely from complicated turning elements, the triple Y is nearly always a misguided composition choice. Only a few people could ever.

Particularly troubling about this skill is the likelihood that it will be downgraded to a double Y if you’re not quite there. And if you’re good enough at Y spins to try the triple Y, you probably want a sure-thing double Y elsewhere in your routine. But it’s too risky to have both because you might get hit with a repeated element.
