Hi there:

i do a bent leg scale (with leg above horizontal). Do I get credit for it since my leg is bent?

I haven't heard of a bent leg scale. Is it a front or a Y scale and is the bend intentional? A free (unsupported) front scale is a high superior. Supported is a superior. If the bend isn't intentional but it is well above horizontal, I would give credit and deduct for the bent leg. But you should have your coach double check with a judge.

Thanks for the quick reply. It is an intentional bend. Basically a free unsupported scale above horizontal but I just bend the leg for an artistic look. I guess if I want to make sure i get credit maybe i should just straighten it out huh? My team is going to Districts next weekend and I want to get the best score for my team as possible.

Thanks again!
