Going to take a plunge but which one .. Wrist Wrench or Rolling Thunder ??? Comments appreciated
radders112Jared the FBBC Crusher looks sweet but judging on the solid handle would cost a bit to ship over
May 20 2015 06:30 AM
Jörg KeilbachI have a old version of the RT that i don't use anymore. I would sell it for 40 € plus the shipping from germany.
May 20 2015 09:35 PM
Jörg KeilbachShipping to UK would be 8,79 €.

All the gripper certifications happening it has brought the fire back within me to go after certifying on grippers!
Anthony C.Yes! This is what I've been waiting for!
May 20 2015 06:58 AM
John McCarterThanks guys! I'm going to plan out which grippers I go for next, maybe start with the GHP8.
May 20 2015 10:59 AM
Anthony C.You can probably kill mm4 right now

On my way to work tonight lightening struck about 5 feet in front of my car while I was driving. It was one of the craziest things I ever saw. It was so intense my eyes still hurt almost an hour later.
JoshWStay safe brother.

Evan Raftopoulosglad you are ok man
May 19 2015 01:29 AM
EJ LiveseyThanks guys. It was such an amazing thing to see. I'm still in awe.

Getting back into grippers - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=slHaWLy9QS0
Evan Raftopoulosgood to know, I've heard mixed things about that, some say that it shouldn't change the rating if the gripper is good quality. That would be an interesting experiment leaving the gripper in a choker for some time and then rate it again with the same equipment. I might try that with my grand elite ext :P
May 18 2015 06:50 PM
Evan Raftopoulosdude, check out CPW's new anouncement on twitter/fb. pre rated Barabans!
May 18 2015 07:37 PM
JoshWDo it ;) ooooh that will be interesting to know more about their ratings!

Even on holiday my #2 stays close to me for TNS
Yesterday I closed my 128lbs CoC 2.5 for the first time. I will submit a vid with ghp block set for feat judging soon.
Jüri SankmanWaiting for vid. Good job!
May 15 2015 07:54 AM
Evan Raftopoulosthanks guys! it feels good moving up. I might attempt the 2.5 block set tonight if I feel strong. My goal is to close a #3 MMS by the end of the year. I feel this is achievable with a lighter #3 in the mid-high 130s rgc. Seems those are hard to come by though.
May 15 2015 06:01 PM
Evan Raftopoulosthis is my best attempt of the night https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPMcBJ-lm3w
meh...will give it another week and try for a stronger close

2.5 years ago, the kid no set my trainer. I tried fruitlessly to get her to train grippers. Today 15yo she walked into the garage, sets the .5 and mashes it 3 times. My gawd...if the kid would only train them, I seriously think eventually she could cert the #3.
ChezMy daughter can cert the #3.
May 13 2015 10:09 AM
Anton.TorrellaNothing makes you wanna have kids like the prospect of crafting a superhuman the likes the USSR had never seen - cert #4 while certing #3 off-hand
May 13 2015 07:08 PM
anwnateHa. Nice. If she'd give it 18months...we'd be the first father daughter certs. It's killing me.
May 13 2015 08:45 PM
Had my first legit gripper workout since the injury. Came within 1/8" of closing my CoC#2. Lost a bit on my crush but ill bounce back.
bwwmGlad to hear you are on the mend. The 10# will come back fast.
