It could basically be equivalent to a ladies' 2A-3T
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),
Gachinski had videos of 4Flip & 4Loop.
Joubert said he practiced all quads and might try 4Lz when Daisuke tried 4F.
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.
jin-seo of korea said he will try working on his quad.. i hope he will be successful on it.. i want to see at least a male skater to represent korea just in time for pyeongchang.. not just in the ladies..
