In Salt Lake City, Farris stepped out of a quad toe in the short program and replaced the quad with a triple in the free. He has worked on other quad jumps, including the flip.
"Flip would probably be the easiest for me
, but I get the edge call sometimes, so I don't want to run that risk," he said. "I've actually tried all the quads in the harness, other than Axel, obviously. Loop and Lutz were probably the easiest."
For now, he has a quad toe in both the short and the free skate, although he hopes to have two in the free skate eventually.
"In the short, I want to skate clean, confident, do what I know how to do, and then go all out in the long."
Farris says the quad has improved a lot over the last month.
"So much better, oh my god. Ever since I got back from Salt Lake, I was like, 'OK, I need to turn this around.' They're so much more consistent now, more consistent than they've ever been."
