Transitions with a full twist on bars exist in the Shaposh and Pak salto clubs. 

Thanks to Spanish Cintia Rodriguez, we might start seeing shoot to high bar transitions with full twist.

Rodriguez has been training "facing inward – Stalder bwd with release and counter movement fwd in flight to hang on HB" with a full twist. 

The original transition is rated a B, so with a full twist it might either get a D or an E rating.

Shaposh and Pak saltos with full twist club are all rated an E.

She has never competed the skill in a major competition.

Rodriguez turned senior in 2010. She competed at 2010, 2013 and 2014 World championships and the 2014, 2016 and 2017 European championships. Despite being eligible to compete at the last two Olympic Games, she was never an Olympian.
