I thought I was the only one that didn't eff with a paused set. Whenever I try a max gripper, I just set it and hit it. But guys like Chez, Paul, John, and others have that 'pause strength', where they show you how wide the set is and then hit it.
I don't know what's more impressive...a wide set close or a paused MMS set?
I don't do it either, so you're not alone here. Haha. I just get it in my hand and start to squeezing from all the way open.
