After some time I think I’ve found a good use for it. I sat for many weeks contemplating how to use it, first just settling on the fact that it can be used at the beginning of a jump to stuff wakeup normals, but that leaves you wide open when you recover. :sad:
Then I experimented with it on the way down from the jump-hitting it super late is somewhat ambiguous because the animation is barely visible. You can combo it into EX SRK or cl. MP > EX spire. It’s a bit difficult, I’d say maybe 2 frames.
