    I love Akiko, Yuna, and Mao, but their spins aren't that remarkable, they're solid to good, but not really anything to write home about. I actually think spins is Akiko's weakest, link, too...

    I voted for a lot of people since many of them are great at different kinds of spins or overall, but I think the very best are Lambiel and Czisny. Nagasu, Zhang, and Nakano are very good also.

    Lambiel, with no competition. Unless there is Lucinda Ruh in the picks.

    I always loved Jeff Buttle's spins. IMO Lambiel's were fast but I never found his positions that great.

    Alissa's spins to me are the best of the female skaters.

    I never liked Sasha's spins that much, her spirals were amazing but the spins not as much. It always bugged me how her head stuck out in the biellman.

    Sasha's spins were always hard to judge, imo. Some seemed exceptionally good, others inferior. Her Biellman wasn't at all pretty, but her layback and I-spin were great.

    But, yeah, as RockTheTassel said, the I-spin was probably the best, the free leg in the layback and how it lagged behind, and who remembers that scratch spin with the arm variation with Swan Lake?

    Yukari Nakano--she actually accelerates when she goes into her Biellmann and little flecks of snow fly off her upheld blade.
    Then Czisny.
    Then Mao.
