    I gotta hand it to Sasha, her spirls make me go wow, they are so rock solid and have so much control.

    This was very difficult. To be honest I am not impressed with any of the *current* spiral sequences on the amateur circuit. Even some of my favorite girls, like Fumie, don't have knock your socks off spirals.

    That being said, I voted Arakawa.

    Sasha, definetly. Although sometimes it looks like she's about to tip over.

    If it's for who has the second best spiral that would go to Sasha, but you asked spiral sequence. Alissa should be up there. She get my vote, her spiral sequence is awesome.

    I'm going with Bobek. Sasha has no tension in her spirals and her edges aren't that great. I saw her live, and I must say that she looks much better on television. I was in the 2nd row, and I could really see the little flaws in her skating.

    #2 - Sasha Cohen

    #3 - I'd say Elene Gedevanishvili. Her EOE spiral is just breathtaking. I also like some of Shizuka's spiral positions, especially the one she added last season.

    As far as sequences go, I LOVE Shiz's! For example, the Y-COE and "let go" position show off what makes for a good spiral-great flexibility and tension, incredible blade control, so much strength and maintaining the speed throughout the COE. I thought her fan spiral was beautiful, when she did it, and I don't mind her beillmann or layover (?) spiral.

    Position wise, there's no denying that Sasha has some of the best positions around. Yes, she is more impressive on TV than live-live you notice she doesn't use as much of the ice as others, isn't quite as fast and doesn't skate as "into" the ice as some. But the actual positions, be it traditional spiral, Y-spiral, skid, fan spiral or catch-foot, she does have the prettiest positions!

    Anyway, I voted for Shiz since it's "2nd Best Sequence", not best spiral position.

    None of the above!! I vote for Alissa Czisny... just watch her Skate Canada LP this weekend! Really beautiful extension but not overly so... I do like Sasha's first spiral variation last year--a fan spiral but holding the ankle... that is HOT! It's a toss up... Sasha's fan spiral and Alissa's COE spiral.

    Question No Allisa Czisney

    Well I would of the current US ladies say that I think Allisa really has a fantastic Spiral after Sasha.

    Where's Bobek? All those voting for Sasha, remember there's more to a spiral than position and most of these ladies are head and shoulders above her otherwise.

    I picked Sasha. She has good extension and position. I love Kimmie and Emily but their spiral sequences aren't really top notch yet.
