    Jumps technically well-executed

    Post examples of jumps that current-competing skaters do with very good technique (we often talk about "bad technique", so I think that it would be good to have a collection of "good technique" collection). With this I mean with correct edges, rotation, height, flow, arms/legs positions and that are overall graceful to watch, while I do not refer necessarily to the consistency (even if usually when a jump is executed with good technique it is also quite consistent).
    Some examples that come to my mind:
    Kostner 3Lutz (especially last season): 1) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nm76DPhYf14 2) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzq5WrEFjiw
    Yu-Na's 2A+3T: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXUWAW5XrqY (especially the second half of the video)
    Liza's 3Lutz
    Han Yan's 2T+2Lo combos (I love how his 2Lo is pulled up easily and with good height and flow)
    Zawadzki's 3Lutz and 3T+3T
    Chan's 4T
    S/S sbs 3T

    While not exactly a "jump" I would definitely add V/T's triple twist. A lot of pairs have sloppy triple twists with clunky catches, and they make theirs look effortless.

    I'm watching TEB right now and keep thinking that I miss jumps with a good flow on the landing. Seems like hardly anyone holds the edge smoothly on a landing.

    All of the jumps listed by FSGMT as well as...
    Carolina Kostners 3f is very very good
    Grace Gold has an excellent 3lz and really good technique on the second triple toe on her combos, she really keeps the momentum through them.
    Miki Ando and Joannie Rochette have excellent triple sals
    Jenna Mccorkell has a huge double axel with very good technique
    Tonya Hardings 3lz was perfect.
    Nobunari Oda has a great 3a, as does Artur Gachinski.

    Kwan's 3T-3T at 2001 Worlds had among the best run-out of any 3-3 I've ever seen.

    Plushenko was also able to have great speed on the landing of his 3A.

    As far as a "textbook" jump, I would say Baiul's 3Z; it had a traditional entry, great height, and a deep edge on the take-off and landing. It just wasn't very consistent.

    Ilia Kulik's jumps were supposedly textbook, if I recall.

    I would add also Sotnikova's 2A+3T: the ones she landed at CoC and TEB were really well-executed!!
