Yep, I will be there. Hoping to set an official record on the IM hub.

you'll smash that record man. also, if you have some, bring some reds and well do some bending after the comp. ive got some FBBC stuff im pretty sure you can smash as well.

gripboard is dope, and there are some world class benders posting here, especially Tommy.  check out steel benders.org for a little more focused info on bending.

Hey Josh,
Go to your local home depot or lowes &buy some 1/4" CRS (cold rolled steel) it'll be labeled as such. Also buy some bolt cutters & a file... cut yer 3 or 4-ft sticks into 6-7"bars for bending. Buy yer wraps from IM.. buy at least 2-as they're inexpensive ($5)ea. Yer all set as far as material..
now find some experienced guys to train with or do like I did & look up vids on YouTube. Mike sharky & Nathaniel brous helped me tremendously to my RED Nail cert...
got any more questions don't hesitate to ask! Good luck brother! !
