    Jared the FBBC Crusher looks sweet but judging on the solid handle would cost a bit to ship over

    I have a old version of the RT that i don't use anymore. I would sell it for 40 € plus the shipping from germany.

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.

    good 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

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.

    thanks 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.

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.

    Nothing 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

    Ha. Nice. If she'd give it 18months...we'd be the first father daughter certs. It's killing me.
