The twizzles themselves wouldn't look different. The difference would be where they're used in the choreography in relation to the music but even then I'm not sure how much different they'd look or feel.

Gotta watch that program again. Several times!
i'm so not here for the twizzle h8r fest goin on right now
what did twizzles ever do to you except give you immeasurable joy and pleasure!!
Yup, me too---I cringe whenever a team uses a tango for a FD or a single skater uses tango for a SP or FS.

What are some of your favorite ice dances across the decades? I really can't think of a single dance from before CoP was created where a 15+ second spin with change of foot would help the program. I don't see any programs in this past CoP decade that benefited from including such a long spin either.

Why did they need to change foot and go into sit spin position after that?
