It’s a technique developed by Max. It uses CADO with some tricks to bump a found poly to a higher e-score. I am not familiar with the actual mechanics but Max did send me his recipe in a series of PMs some times ago. I will ask him if these can be published.

Max has also stated that he has found a way to lower the skew while keeping the e-score constant for a given poly. Sounded promising but I have no details.

Keep in mind that not every poly can be spun, and even when it can the spin doesn’t always improve the e-score all that much. But it is a very cool innovation which is definitely a +1 to the art of poly searching.
