These were all great, @Kickbykick .

One combo I use as a BnB that I don't see get posted much which I think is near optimal and finishes with F12's amazing frames is on a F21/21212/F4 starter it goes:

spin, F4, amp spin, JI2, F12

It's very easy with F21 and 21212, it's a bit tight on F4. This works on virtually every set up reliably unless you get the F4 into amp spin really low which pops them up a bit higher and hits them an extra time with the spin. In that case, I just F12.

This is kinda huge. Thanks a lot. Adds 1 damage but the knockdown is the important part. Now I can go for teleport setups and better oki without losing some damage
