    Who has the best layback?

    I prefer the arms circled over head, and the free foot definitely has to be turned out (the side of boot parallel to the ice).
    The faster the better.

    I think Lucinda Ruh has best layback (best spins all round!)
    I've seen a video of her in a layback spin, dead centred, doing about 45 revs at a speed too fast for me to keep up with counting. Her position was very nice.

    Out of those, Lucinda Ruh. But Sarah Hughes and Irina Slutskaya also have beautiful ones.

    I chose Dorothy, of the ladies listed. Lucinda's is awesome, not traditional. I would put her in a category all by herself. 42

    I would have voted for ANGELA but she's not on your list.

    Yes, and you can put her on top of a JEWELRY box, too! :D

    Depends on the layback variation. I've seen at least 4 different layback variations. If you are writing about the 'classic' one: Angela, Sasha, Sarah.

    I don't need a best. I like all three. But there are other variations that are not 'classic'

    I find Sarah's to be the most pleasing. Angela's is also pretty spiffy, whether it be on a jewry box, jewelry box, cardboard box, or with a fox wearing flannel sox . . .

    yeah, I'd have to say Sasha's too. Especially after Campbell's. i've never seen it held for so long.

    Sasha, definately... she finally has it centered and I love the arm variations!

    I can't believe Angela wasn't put on this list, even though Lucindah Ruh has more variations..that are absolutley flawless, no one can come close...
