Difficult Entries to Spins
« on: May 09, 2015, 04:46:06 AM »
Was watching Senior Freestyle (Worlds) and noting some of the entries used. Wanted to list them and see if you guys have noticed any others I may have missed....

1. Traveling 3s into Camel or sit. (aka. Hillary or Buttle Camel)
2. Butterfly into Camel or Sit
3. Illusion into Layback or Sit. (A lot of men doing this into back sit)
4. Stars into Camel or Deathdrop. (Not sure about this one. Someone at the rink said it was NOT a difficult entry and wouldn't count.)  ???
Does anyone know if this would count?
There must be more. What did I miss?

Split jump is Max Aaron, so you won't see it at Worlds.  Lunge was Ashley  Wagner

I thought illusion was a spin feature, not an entry.

A lot of skaters are now doing an illusion into a layback and getting a difficult entrance feature for the illusion.

3 revolution illusion is a spin feature, a single illusion into a spin is a difficult entry
