Cracked the handles together on my new #4. Matt Cannon rated it at 205lbs RGC. I've added a couple other videos also.

Monster power Paul. Can I ask why you leave the screen when setting? Is it to help set the gripper?

I've seen several of his closes and this is just the way he sets it, by bending down.
Huge close, Paul.

That narrow world class is a gripper for you.

Paul explained this awhile back.  Some people felt he was switching grippers out when he was really setting the gripper against his thigh...or somewhere on his leg.

Makes no difference, I think a 30mm block could of fitted between the handles from the position he started.

So is your routine based around multiple closes at or near you limit?

One question: Do you think the Beef Builder Pro is within reach?


Do you plan on tackling the Mash Monster Table?

Got a question, Paul. As weird as it sounds... Is your recovery feeling better at this level, than say, a no.3 level?
