I friggin' loved Meno & Sand. Their 95/96 short program is one of the greats of that decade, IMO. OMG, that spiral sequence...an indication that extreme flexibility is not required to make a great spiral.
But their triple toes were rarely attempted--let alone successful. And a throw 2A was not difficult enough.
For me, it was never about M&S not having achieved enough. I think they were quite underappreciated by the US. Maybe it was due to Michelle/Tara, underappreciated nonetheless.
