    Just received my package from FBBC with a 2 1/2" Crusher handle and a hub trainer.  Holy man, these things are tough.  The handle is built like a steam roller.  I had doubts ('cause I'm a dumb ass) that the handle wouldn't rotate freely once resistance is applied.  Wrong!!!!  This thing's brutal.  The hub is just, well, humbling.  So far just 100lbs on the Crusher and just 45 on the hub.  It's gonna be a good summer to train.

You ain't lyin' about its steam roller attributes.  We were laying vinyl tile in my house several years ago, and I came home from work one night to discover my wife using my Crusher to smooth out the tiles.  By the time we finished the house there was no paint remaining on the handle.

Lol.  Yori, somehow I accidentally erased your question when it didn't quote properly and I was trying to edit it, so I'll paraphrase it:  Guys, how do your Rolling Thunder #s compare to the Crusher?

 

Answer: My best on the Crusher is roughly 165.  I think I've done a good 20 pounds more on a Rolling Thunder (I don't own one).

Cool. The reason I ask is because I've started training on my RT (finally) but was at first tempted to get a crusher.
I would've definitely gone that route had there been more standards set for the crusher.

Well, in just a week (I need to start programing) I went from 45 to 50 on the hub and didn't budge on the Crusher.  What a frickin' beast.
