EXTREMES AND BINGLES IN GRANDSIRE DOUBLES

Here are two lesser-known Grandsire calls surrounded by a good few before and after changes for clarity. First the Grandsire Doubles extreme:

45312
54132	"extreme" called here
51423
15432
15342
51324
53142
35412
34521
43251
42315
24135

It is called an extreme because one of the places made is at the back (the extreme column of the method). And now for the Grandsire bingle, which rather resembles a single in Stedman Doubles (or a bob of New Bob):

45312
54132	"bingle" called here
51423
15432
14532
41523
45132
54312
53421
35241
32514
23154

Bingle is short for (and easier to shout out than) big single, where big refers to the action taking place deeper into the change (in this case 4ths and 5ths place) than other viable singles. Here is a table showing the additional pieces of work.
