About
Even the regular forward toe-on is quite a rare skill in modern elite gymnastics, so you know the L-grip version is going to be even rarer, especially because this is among the instances when there is no value benefit to doing the skill in L-grip as opposed to regular grip, so it’s quite difficult to find a circumstance where it would make sense to bother doing this. If there’s any intention of making this a real skill that people do, it would need to be worth more than a C, though I don’t actually think there’s any intention of making this a real skill that people do. If anything, L-grip elements are out of favor with the WTC, what with the E-value pirouettes getting less CV now and whatnot.

Value
C
