About
Even the toe-on 1.5 cannot be found in current-day elite gymnastics! If any 1.5 pirouette were to make an appearance, you would think it would be the toe-on as that seems to be the most comfortable (while still being valuable) root for the majority of gymnasts.

But no. No toe 1.5s. The deductions are just too profound for it to be worth it, because theoretically this is an attainable element for a lot of gymnasts, and everyone could always use an E skill, but you’re never going to finish it vertically enough to make the value of the skill outweigh the deductions.

Value
E
