    Quad Combinations: Men

    Elvis Stojko (CAN) landed the first quad in combination (quadruple toe loop-double toe loop combination) at the 1991 Word Championships. He is also the first man to land a quad-triple combination (quadruple toe-triple toe) at the 1996-97 Grand Prix Final.

    He is a three-time World champion (1994, 1995, 1997), two-time Olympic silver medalist (1994, 1998), and seven-time Canadian champion (1994, 1996–2000, and 2002).

    Who do you think has the best quad combination and which one?

    I like Chan's 4-3T as well.

    Something to mention is that Kevin Reynolds is the first to land 2 quads in the SP ... quad combo + quad.

    I think, for currently competing skaters, it must be Chan. The 4-3 he did at the Olympics in the LP was perfect. --And I think also scored +3?

    Lately, Nobu has been impressing me with his Quad Combos in Shows!

    https://youtu.be/loyVHfCSnI0?t=10m22s 4T-3T at Fantasy on Ice Finale!

    http://nonchan1023.tumblr.com/post/1...r-landing-a-4t 4T-3T-2L --he almost did it!

    He says still trains almost every day and that he would be depressed if he lost his ability to land a quad.

    Kevin van der Perren 2010 World's FS Quad-triple-triple - not the first - but certainly an exciting combo!

    Reviving this thread for discussion as it's been three years since the thread was created A lot of quad combos have taken place since then. Who has the best?

    Alexandra Trusova's 4T-3T in Kaunas is the only quad combo by a lady, so she's the best of the ladies by default so far!

    Love Chan's 4t-3t. The best. And 4lz combos hands down go to Jin for me.

    Still Chan's 4t-3t for not only the height but also the ice coverage, pure technique and air position... very few quad combos have that quality

    Alexandra Trusova's 4T-3T. Simply because she is the only female who can be in this very masculine list.

    Trusova is definitely female, but she's "not a woman yet"...

    I didn't see anyone on this thread refer to her as a "woman" - so I don't understand the need for this post?

    Not intentional, but in effect this ended up as 4T<+1Lo combination

    I'd like to mention Boyang Jin as a first skater to get ratified 4Lz in combo. And I agree that Patrick Chan's 4T-3T is stunning
