This is a hard gap to fill.  Suggestions to try:  GNC 250, Grand Master, HG 300, Super Master 5/8"

I was thinking the grand master but was hoping it wouldn't be more difficult than my coc3, I realize this gap is a Tough one to fill.

I have had three Grand Masters, 150, 141, and 149.  The 141 was from that run of Tettings that were much lighter than normal.  They seem to be back to normal strength now.

You're probably better off getting a gripper that's already rated when you want something that specific.  If you're looking at the average #3 as 150, and the average GHP6 at 135, you're probably looking for something 140+.  

 

Just to give you an idea of how things vary and why you should get something already rated:

I've got a narrow Elite that's 145

I had an RB240 that was 144

I've got a #3 rated 144

I've also got a BBGM rated at 150 that is easier than my 147 #3

 

Of my unrated grippers that are easier to close than my 147 #3 but harder than my GHP6:

RB260, BBGM, extra wide BBSM.

 

You should save yourself the grief and buy something already rated.

I was looking for the exact same thing recently, and I decided to try a grand master.

It was rated at 150, and harder than my MM0 #3.

My advice is that you get consistent on your GHP6, cause at that point you shouldn't be very far off on your #3.

Maybe a certain setting on the Vulcan gripper

I bet that could be a way to fill in that gap

Sounds like filing maybe a great option

Agreed, but I look at my grippers as tools.  If I need to modify a tool to complete a job then it's time to grind. 

 

 

My old grippers and my originals are kept clean and put up, new stuff is fair game.

I've only filled one gripper a long time ago
Doing that was the key to closing my 2.5
The point is by filing it you can get closer to the number 3

These aren't baseball cards

It's a gripper.

Thanks

I'm not going to file the ghp6 it's too pretty:)

I've already closed my hg300 that feels in between my ghp6 and coc 3.

Would like to try the grandmaster I might ask Matt if he has a weak one. Can mash the ghp6 but am around 15mm from the coc3.

Really filing the GHP6 is probably the only option.  I have a 138lb GHP6 and a 140 BBM which are basically rating but feel completely different.  My small hands take to the tetting grippers better because of the narrower spread but honestly I think to train to close an IM3, train with GHP and IM grippers.  Even if you got a 145lb BBGM (which seems to be pretty rare these days), even though the rating would be where you want it, the "feel" of it (vs. a 3 or GHP7) wouldn't be as beneficial as going beyond the range with the 6.  I say all this being in a similar position to you--I am closing my 6 with regularity now and missing 3/GHP7's by millimeters.  No need for another gripper, you're in shooting distance, just keep going.

Or file the heavy grip 300 I don't know how the spring would take it cause the quality isn't as good as the other brands

It was 50% an honest opinion and 50% a joke.

I would feel really bad filing a GHP simply because they are so beautiful.

I would rather work till I could get 3 reps with it, and then try to close my #3 till I could close it fully, or do strapholds with the GHP6.

I would try all kinds of things before filing it, which I probably would never do anyway.

Only one of my grippers are filed, it's a 2.5, and everytime I see it I'm thinking "what did I do that for?".
