Laura Lepisto's triple loop is the best IMO.

I like that Joannie has great flow out of her loop, that it really rare.
Yes, and I love how she just enters it with no pre-rotation at all. The jump just takes right off and has such pop.

Don't forget about Lipinski and her 3loop-3loop combo.

Joannie Rochette's triple loop was gorgeous when it was on. One of her best jumps because of how she just snaps into it.

Yes, I love how she will transition directly out of the landing into a spiral and then directly into a spin as in her Samson + Delilah program or like in Aranjuez when she lands right on time with the music change and does the one-foot footwork from the landing directly into her spin combination.

Irina Slutskaya's triple loop was the best and so elegant with the three turns.

I like hers the best.

Odd that there is no mention of Ando or Asada with their array of 3+3loop combos. Both also have nice solo 3loops, but I like Miki's the most from her short and long programs this last year with the 3 turns and steps into it.

Kurt Browning's loops often came right out of choreography (as did his other jumps), especially in his earlier professional programs when he was still comfortable with the jumps and had knees that worked.

+1. Who else could do that?

Actually we see a lot of skaters do it now (Mirai Nagasu and sometimes Ashley Wagner) does it as well, now that steps before a jump are usually rewarded in GOE -- we see it especially in the junior level when the loop is the required solo jump and the 3-turns are the steps before.

I always liked Yuka Sato's 3 loop and 3 salcow.

I always liked the placement of the loop in Mao's Fantastie Impromptu LP. It fitted the music quite well.

I also like Mirai's loops when she is on.

Irina Slutskaya's definitely the best. Difficult entrance, power, height but also kind of grace and elegance to it.

ITA with Bartek about Irina's triple loop.

Although I liked Yuka's skating overall, her jumps always seemed labored to me.

Irina's loops definitely. When watching her preparing for loops I can literally feel my heartbeat in the moment! I'll say everything bartek said above yet again endlessly when it comes to triple loop.
