    I think Chan's 4T3T in the Oly Lp is reeeeeeally beautiful.

    Quad combinations! Bonus points if there's a loop somewhere in the combo. Plush's 4-3-2 and 4-3-3 are amazing. Lambiel also did a perfect textbook 4-3-2 at the Olympics. Chan's quad-triple is a thing of beauty.

    In terms of solo jumps: lutz, loop, and axel.

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.
    When I read the title of this thread, I immediately thought of Yuna's 2nd Lutz at the 2013 worlds. absolutely love it! there's such a snap to it! so crisp but effortless throughout! I also love her 2 axel here. so effortless

    i also love Mao's 3Axels. she does them so elegantly! and Carolina's loops are beautiful.

    To do: flip, and my yuck jump is a salchow.

    To watch, I don't really have a favorite. It varies by skater.
    Triple Axel: Hanyu
    Lutz: Yuna
    Flip: Carolina
    Loop: Ashley
    Salchow: Sasha did that fairly well
    Double axel: I just don't want any skater to break their own heart by blowing that one

I hope I can watch them live to clarify that statement.
    The height Han gets on his 3A may not be as magnificent as the distance it covers, but still quite appreciable.

    Here is a kinegram of one of his 3A

    I am sure watching it live will definitely help clarify any confusions.

    On a second thought, I think the poster I mentioned just watched Han Yan when he was on his off days. She/he said she watched him more than once. But then, Han Yan is still young so maybe his jumps are not that consistent and she/he happened to watch him when he was inconsistent.

    Holy crap! The distance is at least 3 times his height!
