Can't we find a better illustration of a flip jump than Sasha Cohen's? Her technique on this jump is far from "textbook" because she flops back and forth between the inside and outside edges prior to the pick. Dr.frog 15:15, 31 October 2005 (UTC)

I agree - the high kick before the pick is also questionable technique. Once I figure out how to do screencaps from videos (on my to-do list), I can put one together a good technique step-by-step flip. Suggestions for good ones? Michelle Kwan, Michael Weiss and Joannie Rochette come to mind. Vesperholly 08:54, 15 July 2006 (UTC)
Get Yu-Na Kim's Flip jump, ISU uses it as an example in their training material. —Pelladon 03:35, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

The article currently includes this: but in recent years it has become increasingly common for judges to overlook these faults. I have to take issue with that. I don't know what "recent years" means, but it seems to me that in recently (I've been paying attention mostly in the past two years) that judges are now coming down hard on the unintentional change of edge. Especially with the new point system, and especially in the most recent year (2007-2008) of the new system. SongMonk (talk) 22:05, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
