Whip Full (C) or Full (B)?


Apparently, it’s a whip full if you do another salto after it…

@Denn your dreams have become reality.

Hmmm…not a whip…that is a full immediate double tuck.
Love the combination though.

I love those types of passes

What about the bontas 92 routine version?

I would call that a whip full. It has tumbling out of it and it is definitely lower and longer than a regular full.


Yeah I mean that looks more like a whip full than doug’s example

Is that in the new code? If we’re going to spend the next 3 years on this point, I for one am ready.


It was also a C starting in 2017.

Bring on the downgrading of the whip full in 2022!

This is their justification. Which is value raising. Exactly what the FIG has specifically said the Code doesn’t do.

Here is the video of this one too…

It’s considered a whip full as long as there is tumbling out of the skill, whether or not it’s a salto. For Bontas, it doesn’t make a difference in terms of CV because both B and C - indirect D earn 0.1.

I would love for people to take advantage of this. If one can master whipping the full to create momentum and a solid block for the next element, that next element can sometimes be easier than doing it from a back handspring (I used to do power tumbling and learned to tumble out of baranis, whips, and whip-fulls into doubles due to wrist injuries).

So I Imagine a whip-full+2.5+front full would get 0.4 cv? I’d be here for it. I wonder if a barani is given the same treatment? There was a woman at Missouri who competed a barani+double full second pass; I’m sure some elite could do a double tuck or 2.5 from a barani relatively easily.

And what’s kupet’s whip half worth? I’m hoping at least B?

Whip 1/2 is a B, yes


Is it that it needs have tumbling out of the skill, or does it need to be connected to a salto - either indirectly or directly? Somewhere in my mind I recall that it required that a salto follow it. I’ll try to find the newsletter or old version of the Help Desk that gives the clarification.

Edit -
I did look at my notes from Guadalajara in Dec 2016 - Andrianova (floor exercise presenter) stated that the whip salto with 360° turn was only credited C if followed by a salto - either indirectly or directly - other wise credit B (BWD layout stretched with 360°). Is this a change in the 22-24 code?

So as long at ANY salto eventually follows a whip full, its a C? RO–whip full–double tuck and RO–whip full–BHS–double tuck, the whip full is a C either way?

Yes, according to what was presented at the intercontinental course in 2016.

RO + whip 360° + FF + BWD salto tuck would be A + C + A + A.

Bontas with indirect is C + D for CV 0,10 but the above whip 360° + immediate BWD double salto tuck is CD for 0,20 CV (and rightly so!).


I used to like Filatova’s whip-full that she competed in the late 70s

I guess the main point of my thread is that this is explicit value raising, despite the FIG making clear that value raising should absolutely have nothing to do with D Panel.
