To be fair, Plushenko's amazing 3axel/half loop/3flip was really a 3axel/half loop/3LIP. Still impressive, nonetheless.
In terms of ladies who I thought do half loop sequences/combinations well:
Their half loops looked like actual jumps, done purposefully.
Half Loops that look like mistakes, and are sometimes not fully rotated:
At the rink. Again.
That's not physically possible as a loop lands on a back outside edge and the 1/2 Lo (+1Lo in Senior level combos) lands on a back inside edge

3t-half loop-3sal may not look aesthetically pleasing, but it does add more difficulty than if the 2 triples were executed separately. It gives skaters an opportunity for more choreography and other elements.
3-3s are always exciting to watch, 4-3s are too scary. 4-3s have ruined too many hips.
I don't think I have ever seen this combo live on TV. Only saw a couple times on YouTube.
Can you do this under COP?
