    For me its not hard to transition from the rod to the floor. The rod floor is a little bouncier but there isn't a huge difference. You should be fine :)

    Just jump really hard and make sure your arms are straight, I didnt have a lot of trouble transferring my handspring from rod floor to spring, so you should be fine :)

    Rod to spring for my cp was no trouble at all. She actually prefers the spring for standing BHS.

    for standing tumbling theres is really no difference between and solid surface (ie a floor, not trampoline) You're not using the floor to jump or initiate the tumbling, your using your legs so really if you can do it standing on the rob floor you should be abl to do it outside on the grass or in a store on tile. Really, the only difference in the impact on your hands/wrists. Good technique is key.
