About
Real talk: Has anyone ever actually done this?

Like all the Group 1 vaults, as the twisting gets more advanced, the vault becomes rare to the point of missing because it’s just too complex to be performed simply or cleanly by a lower-level vaulter, yet not worth nearly enough to be valuable to those capable of complexity. A combined 2.5 twists for even less value that the repulsion 2.5? No thank you.

Value
3.60 (2022-)
4.00 (2017-2021)
4.20 (2009-2016)
