Joe, when you categorize your collection I assume gd80 gripper is one of your compression spring types, and whitely gripper is frame type? Where does The Wrist Developer and Bison 1 fall?

MRabich, you are correct! The WD and the Bison are not classified as hand grippers or hand grips so I classify them

as grip training tools.

OFFICIAL WORLD RECORD!

 

My collection has now been established as the "World's Largest Private Collection of Hand Grippers"

 

http://www.recordhol...usselwhite.aspx

 

Last week I sent in the final paper work and witness statements and today I got an e-mail

notification that I officially established the world record.

 

This is a goal I have been working towards every week! Now it will continue to grow and grow and

who knows where it will be in another year or two.

 

Thanks to all the GB members that have donated grippers and other items and thanks again to Bill Piche

and the mods who helped me in many ways with this collection!
