A bunch of us were watching an old World's tape the other day, during which Jill Trenary did a one foot axel into 3S, which was a very :smokin: combo we thought. Intense discussion followed about jump combos, especially in light of what the Japanese ladies have been doing of late and, as the sole net-capable person, I have been delegated to post a few questions...
Trenary did a single one foot axel into 3S. Has anyone done a double or triple one-foot axel into 3S? Is this possible?
A friend of mine has "Magic Memories on Ice" (or something similar) on tape and Toller Cranston did a 1.5F straight into 2(?) A, which just looked fantastic. With the increase in technical since Toller's time, how come combos like this have not been developed further?
Finally, it seems a given the men should have 3A-3T combo down pat, so why aren't the ladies doing combos with their 2A? I for one would love to see 2A-3R or 2A-3T combo rather than the ubiquitious 3L-2T (or 2R), (especially since most of the ladies can't hold the outside edge on the L anyway). I realise max tech points are the name of the game, but is there that much difference (gaining points) between, as an example, a 3L-2T and a 2A-3R??
