The values are mostly fine as they are but I'd like the skaters to get rid of the obligatory, sloppily done double axel-double sth-double sth combination at the end of each programm. It is much more difficult to do the last jump of that three jump combo at the end of of a triple-double or even triple-triple combo and they scores should somehow reflect that.

Soem time ago, the ISU changed the base value of the loop to make it more similar to the flip than to the salchow which was a good move.
The difference between the triple lutz and triple toeloop could be a bit more than only 1.9 points, though, I agree with that.

^ Although many senior ladies do struggle with the loop, many more struggle in doing a proper flip jump (and many others don't even do the triple flip in their programs).
