Between Savchenko & Szolkowy or Volosozhar & Trankov, which team do you prefer and why?

S&S for now, because they're more developed artistically and have a great variety of programs. V&T are still new. If I had to compare S&S during their second season (05-06) and V&T (11-12) I'd pick V&T.

Such a shame V&T didn't hook up right after Torino. :(

They're both really good huh? There's almost a foot in height difference between V/T O.O

These teams are GREAT!)I hope they'll build a similar rivalry in pairs to V/M&D/W in dance

Both are fine teams when they are on. But based on tonight's event, I believe that while S/S showed the most of what they are capable of at this stage, V/T with all the mistakes, more room for improvement and still almost beat them. That says a lot about unrealized potential V/T has.

Why isn't there a 'both' option?

If I absolutely have to choose 1, I'll be shallow and pick V&T on the basis of Max being :swoon:.

Program quality are what's keeping me on team S/S at this point, V/T definitely have more potential right now, but their programs cant even hold a candle to the masterpieces that S/S have this season.

V/T. They just have "it" for me. I've never been much of a fan of S/S although I do appreciate some of what they do. Honestly the only time I was ever moved by them was their "Out of Africa" skate. V/T are still raw but they have the potential to be one of the greats, imo. I like passionate skaters.

Both!
S/S for intricacy and originality, V/T for the "grand sweep".
I love them both, but I really want Maxim and Tatiana to get a World Gold, and at the very least an Olympic medal. They've been brilliant all along, and waited long enough.

"Out of Africa" at SC, "Schindler's List" at LA Worlds... S/S made me tear up quite a few times. V/T make my heart race. Choices, choices.

I like both, I decided based on their programs this season. I love S/S's Pina free program, so many details to see. :swoon:

I love them both. I like V/T a little more because I appreciate their more traditional style, but I really do like both a lot.

Good poll question, BTW! It appears as though FSU is 50/50 on this one.

I never liked S/S so I picked V/T. That doesnt mean objectively speaking I think V/T are the better team now if both skate their best, but I definitely like them more. S/S just dont appeal to me whatsoever.
