    Electric!! Favorite pin?

    What's your favorite pinning move? Interested in hearing any responses. Feel free to explain your choices below; for the "other" option, feel free to describe the move. I've tried to make the poll options as general as possible to allow for some latitude, so you could be more specific below. For people who wrestled in the past, have you ever gotten falls with moves that are now illegal (e.g. a pin with a headlock without an arm encircled)?

    For starters, my favorite pins would have to be: 1. Headlocks 2. Pins involving leg rides (e.g. double grapevines) 3. Half nelsons 4. Spladles 5. Any pin that involves the opponent's upper body being held so that he can't move off his shoulders/scapulae (e.g. body locks).

    I've always been a big fan of arm bars. Nothing like working your opponent to see his pain threshold.

    Arm bars were what I always worked the best with.
