    In international competition his 3A attempts have been:

    JGP Bosphorus SP: 3A<< -GOE (-1.43) =1.87 points
    JGP Bosphorus FS: 3a < - GOE (-3.00) =3.00 points)
    JGPF SP: 3A -GOE (-0.71) = 7.79 points
    JGPF FS: A = zero points
    Jr. Worlds SP: 3A + GOE (+0.86) = 9.36 points
    Jr. Worlds FS: 3A + GOE (+1) = 9.50 points
    Jr. Worlds FS: 3A+2T +GOE (+0.14) = 9.94 points
    Nebelhorn Trophy SP: 3A +GOE (+0.86) = 9.36 points
    Nebelhorn Trophy FS: 3A+3T +GOE (+0.57) = 13.17 points
    Nebelhorn Trophy FS: 3A<< -GOE(-1.50) = 1.80 points


    So as far as ratified 3As, he's at 60 percent. As far as ratified 3A + GOE, he's at 50 percent in international competition. However, over two competitions he has been 5/6 (83 percent) getting ratified 3A + GOE, so he's gaining some consistency on it.

    I think he's come a long way. JGP Bosphorus was just about a year ago from Nebelhorn (in fact pretty much the same weekend). He went from earning just 4.87 points on his 3A attempts at that JGP to 24.33 in his three 3A attempts at Nebelhorn, including getting a 3A-3T ratified with + GOE for the first time!

    That's not bad dice for early in the season.

    ETA: Also since Jr. Worlds he's been consistently getting +1s from most of the judges. I agree with noskates assessment, he has the jump it's a matter of executing it. When he has landed it, it has been quite nice. Not Nobunari Oda nice, but nice nonetheless.

    Jason is already more consistent with his 3axel then Adam Rippon has ever been and hopefully it will keep getting stronger. He telegraphs it a bit but not as bad as some other skaters.

    And even with telegraphing, he's still trying some difficult entries into it, like the quick spiral into his 3A in his SP:

    ETA: Although, I'm not an expert, would that count as an entry since it's not right before the 3A? Would it be more of a moves in the field type of thing?

    And don't forget the Ina Bauer-double bracket into 3A-3T in the LP...

    What about the incredible vertical spiral into a tano 3L. I have never seen anyone do that. Rohene must have had so much fun doing the choreography for Jason. He can do things with his body that most other skaters cannot. It will be an great competition.

    That Y-spiral into forward arabesque at the start of his LP in Nebelhorn was absolutely eye-poppingly insane. I mean HOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.

    I think Jason is developing quite nicely; a new hairstyle might be nice but he has the `FEEL FOR THE ICE. His jumps are getting better and the axel is on schedule.

    Jason is a delightful skater to watch. Just need a more consistent 3A and possibly quad depending on how his peers like Hanyu, Han Yan, Farris, Kovtun and Ten develop in the next few years. Among these young highly talented lot, Hanyu and Ten stand out among them all though Ten is a wee bit older. Men figure skating continue to be exciting.
