Do you think a fast, well-centered, long-held, one-position spin is given enough credit?

Not really. I miss seeing classic layback spins or quick, perfectly centered sit/change/sit spins. With all the twists and variations, most of the spins these days lose speed and have no relevance to the music. But why would a skater attempt, for example, a classic layback that is perfectly done in every sense, and then only receive a level 1 with a +1 or MAYBE +2 GOE when they know they are capable of a level 3 or 4? I think that is one of the most unfortunate things about the IJS.

Ask me a question about figure skating!
