Just received like the 16th gripper rated from Matt...a GHP lvl 9.

From the first gripper up until now, Matt has been a stand up guy. He has even assisted and bent over backwards to help me find a particular rated gripper...hence the buyout of 3.5s.

He has earned my business and my respect not only as a businessman but also as someone I seek advice from.

I am hopefully going to break ground with grip strength amongst the military by submitting an article about grip training to the Navy Times, a well-read newspaper published for Navy and Marine Corps service members. In it, I've plugged the grip board, Matt's store, iron mind, and fat Gripz.

Lets hope it gets published, Matt gets swamped with business, and hundreds of new grip board members join the quest to have ignorant hand strength!

Also...just chest crushed the lvl 9. For those of you that are close to closing it or have closed it, I salute you!

Matt...I promise im not going to buy you out of 3.5s again! I just bought this one so i can gauge my progress on the 3.5.
I plan on simulating a 3.5 cert in about three weeks.

Plus, i needed more dry hands...i gave my bottle to someone at work that trains at a commercial gym.

I am going to clean you out of grippers again though...my guess is either SEs or GEs...it will be sometime around January.

I, too, am impressed at quality service matt provides to the grip community. I recently bought an elite for a specific calibration and he was able to get me the perfect gripper. Keep up the good work matt. I will refer grip noobs to your page from now on!

I was just getting ready to start a similar thread, but I couldn't have said it better than you gents. I picked up my first real grippers from Matt and couldn't be happier with the service. In addition to being extremely friendly and helpful, the grippers and rating service are top notch! (My only complaint is that I ordered right after the Ironmind hubs were added and missed them :) Now I have to come up with some more grippers to buy so I can add one to that order (it would fiscally irresponsible of me not to)

Thanks again Matt!

Got my order in under 5 days shipped, very quick.  I love the little tag that comes with the rated gripper also.  The elite I got is perfect medium for me right now and hoping to hit this range on my contest at least.  -170 if I"m strong 180 if I peak perfectly- 

 

For those who have gotten some rated grippers any idea of what might rate low 170's?  I got my elite which is 163 and I"m a bit injured on right but few mm from left hand close with no warm up and my best left hand is old #3 which probably rates around 150. My 3.5 feels like it is close to 180 probably higher if i were to guess-based on a 180+ ghp 8 I tried-.  

 

Maybe a thought would be if you pre rated a few gripers I would spend extra for this if I knew exactly what range it was.

 

Thanks though for the top notch service.  I will order again for sure.

This is the most common request we get. "Do you have any 170-175 grippers."

Really the only possibilities are a damn hard Elite or a daisy of a 3.5 and neither are common.

If I ever find one I'll probably auction it or something! :)
