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!

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

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! :cheer:

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.

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 :)
