I always loved Liz Manley's even if they weren't textbook.

Yuka - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ws8zT...ailpage#t=145s I always loved her edge jumps. I bet there are some even better videos than this one.
Here's another - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fplqu...tailpage#t=65s and another http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8JRN...ailpage#t=145s

If I had a dollar for every time I got distracted, I wish I had some ice cream.
One of my favourite salchows is the one done by Midori Ito on the back of her double axel at 1987 Worlds. The whole sequence is totally amazing, but the sal is huuuuuuge and I think one of the best she ever landed.
ETA: Just re-watching that again, teh sequence seems to take up almost the entire width of the rink!! Another +3 GoE element from Midori
Sure am enjoying these clips. Please keep them coming folks!
The free foot brushing the ice on the salchow take-off does not equate to jumping from two feet. The skating leg (left leg for CCW skater) has to bear the majority of the skater's weight on the entrace and take-off. Once he's in the air then he switches his weight over to the right side of his body. Saying that a skater take-off from two feet implies that his body weight is evenly distributed between both legs before take-off, and this is simply not possible to do for any of the 6 standard skating jumps.
It may appear someone is taking off from two feet but they aren't doing that on the loop.
