    Lambiel's spins, and his arm movements, and in general, anything he does on ice... ;)

    Don't you mean 3L 3T? If so, I think she has the biggest combo of all skaters, men included!

    All of Kwan's spirals

    Adam's Rippon Lutz

    The Shibutani's posture and classy demeanor

    Sasha's spiral followed by a Russian Split into another spiral in last year's National's program

    Alissa Czisny's combo spins. Mirai Nagasu is a close second

    Meryl and Charlies' spectacular and difficult lifts

    Most of Takahashi's footwork sequences

    One that many love, but creeps me out: Shawn Sawyer's Y spin. I just keep seeing a dislocated hip! :eek:

    Meryl and Charlie's spin entrance, the one they ditched this season :(
    and all of their Phantom lifts - crazy!!!

    Michelle's spirals

    the Siudeks' lifts - position changes, their out-of-this-world entrances

    Volosozhar/Trankov twist

    Joubert's quads

    Yagudin's steps

    Volosozhar/Morozov throws (as great as Trankov is, he will NEVER throw her like that)

    and the cool thing Tomas Verner does here at about 0:53. Kind of a flying spin I guess, but sooo awesome!!

    No, 3f-3t with breathtaking entering speed.
    3Lz-3t is another great combo though.

    Love this thread!

    Since most of my favourites have already been mentioned, how about:

    Alexander Abt's camel spin-not the speed of his spin, but his back and leg position (it was the only time he ever pointed his toes, I think).

    Also, Alexander Abt's flying sit spin combination from his 2002 LP.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86g-lZbNauU


    Johnny Weir's posture and grace-not any particular move, rather the way he moves on ice-like a ballet dancer.

    Anything Rudy Galindo did that utilized his amazing flexibility-layback spin, spiral, etc...

    This. He had an exquisite camel spin. All the Russian men do them well, but his was just :swoon:


    Also, I love Plushenko's 3A-half loop-triple flip. It makes me sad that we don't see stuff like that anymore because a sequence is deemed "easier" and thus only worth .8 of total elements. Ridiculous.
