    Not to say I know more than him, but I think the 3A-4T could definitely be worth the points! Especially if you're really good at doing 4Ts. .Can probably get a really high scoring combo at the 2nd half of the program. Only type of person I can see doing this is someone who is really good at 4Ts, but doesn't want to do a 4T-3T (because it's boring)

    It could basically be equivalent to a ladies' 2A-3T

    Haha. So true

    You can post stuff like that in Yulia's thread in Fan Fest, I think.

    Then maybe someone ho is really good at 3A and on 4T = Hanyu , but I don't see him going for that in competition, because he simply don't need such crazy combinations, but I would be not surprised if he already practiced it

    He probably meant that it's 'BV/risk' rate was too high. Why he needs to risk not to land such combo when he can land easier combo with + GOE for not too much smaller value? He simply doesn't need this.

    Edit:

    Also, this would depend on when this was - the value of quads used to be lower, no? So a 4T-3A would have been lower too?

    ETA - sorry, meant 3A-4T.

    I think most top men jumpers has practiced all quads at some point.

    Stojko said he did in this interview (4A with harness),
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxEdsRPH64c#t=4m42s

    Gachinski had videos of 4Flip & 4Loop.

    Joubert said he practiced all quads and might try 4Lz when Daisuke tried 4F.


    thanks for posting this brah, seriously impressive! i saw the 4s-3a once and couldn't find the link again and here you delivered.

    True, I think a lot of the 'Good Jumpers' have tried the various Quads with some success, but I feel more optimistic about Hanyu's 4Lo because he was able to do it in spotlights, in front of an audience. That shows that the success rate is further along...I think?
    When talking about training the other quads, Hanyu said "It takes a long time to get the rotation, and then a long time again to be able to make a landing, and then a long time again to make the landing secure. I hope to add the new quads over a few years time" So, with the 4Lo he is at the stage where he is practicing the landings and getting the success rate higher.

    Hope Adam goes back to going for his Quad Lutz. It had such purity and potential. Could electrify a program if he hit it, like when Tanya hit her first Triple axel.

    Meoima posted an interesting Yuzuru interview today...

    Q: Your status with a different quad?
    A: Beginning this rest period, I will begin to challenge it. There are still many exhibitions, and my practice time has been affected, so I haven’t begun to seriously practice it yet. Because it hasn’t yet been shown in an actual competition, maybe not a lot of people know, but in reality there are quite a few competitors that have landed a quad loop, or quad lutz in practice. I have to remember this, and prepare myself for a time that will perhaps change. Jumps are crucial, but in expressive ability, there is also work to be had.
    Q: Do you have the thought that you want to be the first ever to make a jump?
    A: How should I say it? It’s hard to put into words. It’s not that I don’t want to jump, but it hasn’t developed to that point. I don’t want to merely perform a certain jump in a competition to get put down as a record. As soon as one person succeeds, everything will change, and all I want is to be able to keep up with that change

    So, the situation sounds a bit like a classic Western movie scene where the gunfighters are facing off.
    You'd better carry a gun, but you know that if you draw first, there's always the possibility you might lose the battle.

    I need the clip in which he successfully landed the 4 loop. Why there was no camera at that moment? What a pity!
