A scale is typically performed at a quarter-turned stunt position. The “pulled” leg is usually facing the front of the stunt. To pull a scale, the flyer must enter the skill by grabbing the inside shin of the “pulled” leg, while keeping the knees glued together. After grabbing, the flyer will then straighten the “pulled” leg, arching the lower back, and opening the chest to the audience. The other arm will typically be in a High-V position or on the flyer’s hip. The shoulders should be squared to the front of the stunt along with the open chest. Toes on the “pulled” leg must remain pointed at all times. A “broken” scale is the same skill, but with the “pulled” leg bent at the knee.
