Who: Jim Benson
Why: 1986 FPA Worlds Open Pairs Final

Jim Benson and Deaton Mitchell went dropless in this routine to win their fourth Open Pairs title in a row. It was an epic battle between their controlled style and an aggressive shred routine by Joey Hudoklin and Crazy John Brooks. What got forgotten was that within the control, intricate co-ops and droplessness was serious difficulty. This combo is one example. A twisto set to a spinning pull, ending in an oliver catch.
