    Who has better spirals? Mao Asada X Carolina Kostner. Why?

    Hello everyone.

    So, I was debating with a friend of mine about spirals. As some of you know, I am a Carolina Kostner's fan. My friend is fan of Mao Asada. I told that I really love Carolina's spirals, because of the supersonic speed, deep edges, elegance, the joyful and free sensation. In the other hand, my friend said that she likes Mao's more, because of the flexibility, musicality, creativity and originality. And I would like to know your opinion. What do you prefer? The artistic, flexible and musical Mao's or the fast, elegant and joyful Carolina's?

    I selected some videos of both girls best spirals for you watch:

    I like Mao's spirals too. But, as I have already said, I prefer Carolina's. The ice coverage, speed and presence she has on ice are so unique.

    Mao definitely!!! Not really a big fan of Carolina's skating, although she appears to be a lovely person!

    Mao~ She is like a beautiful little bird during her spirals. There is something natural, poetic, and balletic about them. I wish she would make them longer in her newer programs actually

    Mao's spirals!! Caolina seems like a lovely person, but I am not really into her speed, which she seems not able to control thus making for some sloppy-looking skating. Mao's spirals are not extraordinarily slow, but is of average speed, and everything else, position, flow, body movement throughout, is poetic.

    Mao Asada hands down everything about them are soo beautiful, from her extention, flexibility, positioning it's perfect and actually the lady with thé most beautiful spirals if you ask me, I would really love if Mao's spiral would be longer this year. when the spirals wasn't a required element in the sp I was really sad mostly because i really enjoyed Mao's spirals and would miss seeing them in her sp!
