But then, too, most of the change of edge spirals are being done poorly this season, it seems to me. Just like everyone is trying a Bielmann whether they can do it or not, we are seeing a lot of wobbly and unsustained edges of CoEs in a variety of positions.

So far it seems like a net plus for the skaters. The extra level on base mark more than compensates for possible lower GOEs in the New Judging System.
