Pike 1/2

The pike jump with 1/2 turn is an exceptionally rare skill on beam. The introduction of mixed series bonus has been a boon for other B-rated cousins of the pike jump 1/2 that can be tacked onto the end of combinations for a bonus tenth, like the tuck jump 1/2 which has seen a resurgence, but the pike jump with 1/2 turn just seems to be a little too unnecessary complicated to bother with adding into a mixed series. I mean, if you can do a tuck jump 1/2 for the same value, what incentive is there to try a pike?
