    Chen and Baiul had very nice loops.

    Tara Lipinski's 3loop was a favorite of mine.

    Todd Eldredge did a great 3loop/3toe combination in 2002 at Nationals and the Olympics.

    I think Keegan Messing has an impressive 3loop, right?

    I love Cynthia Phaneufs. Something about her takeoff is just amazing!
    Also Yu-Na's and Michelle's. People say these are their bad jumps but when they do them they're amazing.

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

    I like springy, airy 3loops off the long back outside edge the best. Ones like Harding, Ito or Rochette.

    They just look so powerful in the air and on the takeoff.

    I like that Joannie has great flow out of her loop, that it really rare.
    I want to thank you Lord for being with me so far this day. With your help, I have not been inpatient, lost my temper been grumpy or envious of anyone. But I will be getting out of bed in a minute and I think I will really need your help then. Amen

    Laura Lepisto's triple loop is the best IMO.

    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.

    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.

    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.
