My observation in our region, not having a single bar release in our region is not looked down upon. There are gymnasts with 10+.1 SV without the single bar release. I have even seen gymnasts getting 9.5+ with no major release at all, just bail to handstand, toe hecht and double lay dismount. We have large # of gymnasts in college gymnastics from our region and have very competitive college teams. Kyla Ross did not compete a single bar release in college and she is one the most decorated college gymnasts.
