>You're the only person I know who does like them, then!
I like them too! This was the second jump I learned two
years ago, and I'm still trying to get it right. There seem
to be various stages to learning jumps. The thing about
the toe loop that's similar to the salchow is the waltz
kick, which is hard to do, and hard to explain.
After stepping onto a right forward inside edge and
doing the 3-turn, your left leg picks in and you jump.
The hard part is keeping the right leg straight, sort of
like a waltz jump. It's pretty when done right. I find
it difficult to straighten out my right leg after I come
off the pick, maybe I need more height on this one.

Well, technically it's something like this, a RFI 3-turn,
check, toe-pick, jump, land on RBO edge - hold.!
I'm still working on mine after two years, so give them
some time - when I was first learning the jump my instructor
emphasized keeping the free leg straight and controlled
when I did the RFI3. And the check, the check is important!
