I think i'm struggling to come up with a name because who can be said to be a "consistent quadder"? I think the only man we can say is consistent with the quad is probably Joubert who does haev good posture and flow but not on a level with Weir or Chan.

The only other guy I can think of is Verner who IMO has the best posture and flow over the ice but he certainly is not consistent, although he seems to have a high success rate with the quad itself (its the rest of the jumps towards the end of the programme that go MIA).
leave no stone unturned
well well well, i would not believe I would live to see this, but I totally disagree about plushenko.
He has all the goods of the world and great posture but not the edges of chan. Do we speak about flow and posture in general?Cause I understood something different.
I would not consider Plush's flow or use of edges comparable to chan, his flow is based on strength and speed so in the question of Joe he was not a candidate. While we are on the subject neither Joubert can be compared on that, his skate is based on speed also. Chan is smooth and really spectacular on that, still I prefer the way Takahashi, Verner (quads) and most of all Weir (no quad) move on ice. Thats just my view of course
