That's everyone's favorite, ss-super bomber; the back-handed reverse gaston! Rare and coveted.

It looks kind of like a reverse ham hock from underneath. Maybe a grundle hock?

Looks like some good swing potential for the leader and the follower. That's a backhand, inverted reverse palm press with a quarter twist maneuver.
