Slightly less cliche than the obligatory "what's your favorite sub" thread, but just as fun! Let's follow the same format as the submission thread. Tell us your favorite, best, and worst -- preferably with a little detail as to why.
I'll, of course, get us started.
Favorite: Pendulum/Flower Sweep, without a doubt! It feels SO awesome to pull off and it's pretty versatile. You can do it in the spur of the moment to capitalize on someone's mistake or inattention, but it's also a great way to compliment or follow up on your armbar attempts. Also goes well with gift-wrapping or any time you can secure an arm. ITZJUSTSOAWESOME!
Best: See above. Though I'm infatuated with it, as if I just learned it yesterday, the pendulum sweep has been a staple of my game for the last year or so.
Worst: Butterfly Sweep. I can land the elevator sweep (one butterfly hook) on fair occasion, but even then, not very consistently on decent people. With two hooks, I can't do crap. It's very sad. I should get to work on fixing this, considering how valuable a tool this is.
I think sweeps are cooler than subs and this topic gets me all excited. Look forward to hearing from you guys.
Highly opinionated but out of touch with the current MMA scene.
