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! !

Welcome to the addiction and stay healthy.  Don't overdo it at first or you'll risk tendonitis and various injuries.  Start with smaller pads, like ironmind pads or 4 by 10 inch suede and get the style down first.

 

Once you can bend a blue nail, you'll be able to get a decent 60 penny nail which is a classic feat of strength.

 

All the best.

Thanks I got the IM Bag of nails, did some whites and greens today, felt like I could do the yellow but didn't want to push it. I must say, looking at that little green IM nail I thought it was going to be easier then it was.
