    Nothing is prettier than a well done loop timed to the music.

    To do, I like lutz jumps. My least favourite is the loop. It seems to give skaters a lot of trouble, including myself.

    Obviously watching a 3A like Ito/Yan/Hanyu and a 4T like Hanyu/Chan/Plushenko is quite thrilling to see.

    A little list of my favourite jumps to watch:

    4T and 3A from Hanyu.... just so easy, that always makes me think that looks so easy that even I can go and do it

    Joubert 3lutz in his prime days. Just huge, huge, huge. I wonder why he never tried quad lutz in competition, he was finishing rotation long way in the air.

    To watch or do?

    To watch: for some reason I just really like the Lutz. I never really had an appreciation for how marvellous the loop could be until I saw Josh do one that was so perfect it was like butter.

    To do: Flip, or toe loop.

    The Salchow is the Devil's Jump.

    Yuna Kim's double axels are a thing of beauty! Also her flips and lutzes are glorious

    My favorite is a well-done 3-Lutz is beautiful. A ladies' lutz is preferable. Men, because they tend to be taller and because they are used to rotating much faster (for quads), a 3Lz just becomes kind of awkward-looking. I specifically enjoy lutzes that have a lot of vault to them (i.e. Carolina & Yuna). I also do not like large amount of transitions in front of a lutz. Yuna's 2nd 3Lz in her worlds 2013 Les Mis comes to mind when I think of beauty. She does a very simple transition that extends her body by raising her right leg -- she seemingly gains speed from it also. The transition out is also lovely. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6d3XEp6mg0#t=141

    Another favorite is 3A. Hanyu and Han yan come to mind here. Bold and brilliant jump.

    3A hands down. Though I do have a soft spot for loops as well.
