I thought it would be interesting to get everyone's perspective on this topic. Do longer limbs (arms) make it easier to catch release moves on bars? My DD is a compact gymnast, as are many of her gym friends. But then there are the girls who have the longer lines/longer limbs. Her group has observed that the girls with longer limbs catch their piked Jaegers more frequently and get it faster. Is this a thing, or coincidence? Just curious as I never thought about it before, and it sounds like it could be a thing. But then I think, they typically have longer legs to get around too so this could be coincidence.
