Nate, holy crap my hand looks sexy on the big screen! :cool

which attempt was that? the third one was closed sir. if i paused just right on youtube i got a better shot. just wasnt crystal clear. the handles are actually almost perfect mounts. my camera just doesnt do it any justice. check out Chez's and Juhas vids. the handles are even.

 

edit: on second though i guess it looks more like a zombie hand.. but a sexy zombie hand.

 

Third attempt...in regards to the handles...guess it must be an angle issue. 

 

Haha Tommy...SZH (sexy zombie hand) you should have that added under your name... MM4, CoC 3, KOAB, Red Nail, SZH

Justout of curiosity, who are the judges besides wannagrip? Are we allowed to know or are their identities protected by the government or something?

 

Think about that a little more man...it's probably best that the judges are anonymous.  

 

While I was annoyed at the time I failed my MM0, in time, I realized it's our job as closers to not just close the gripper...but be able to prove it (otherwise why video it at all?).

 

I almost failed my MM2 due to a lighting issue...but thankfully they hung in there until they found something they could stand behind.

 

 

 

The whole system with the MashMonsters rely on volunteers...and they carry out their duties on a thankless job with zero pay...and only hear about it if they make a close call.

 

If I was(or am? hah) a judge, I know I would prefer to remain anonymous. 

 

I think it's best we avoid the situation of "grudges for judges."

Woops I was misunderstood...I wasn't going hard on the judges at all. I know they do it for free and it's a thankless job...I was just genuinely curious who they are. But you make a good point. I would want to remain anonymous. So that being said, I think they're doing a great job.

Naw...I didn't think you were being hard on them...just saw it as an opportunity to acknowlege their efforts in addition to addressing the anonymity.

that area has always been my best lighting in the house for filming a gripper close. but i just noticed i have a burnt bulb there.

oh well. i'll see if i can get with Eric on my next attempt. he can for sure film a good close. that and ill make sure and get stronger for a more dominant close.

Tommy, you did one of your certs outside.  That is generally awesome lighting.  Bathrooms are also generally very good. 

 

Anthony, another tool (which is still subjective) is to invert the colors on the still.  It turns dark into light and there seems to be daylight between the handles.  This is the still you posted. 

 

Also Tommy, you're a class act.  The power is clearly there.  Better lighting and a stiff breeze in the right direction and you'd be MM5.

I don't judge the attempts these days.  Also, they judges are more than qualified and have been judging attempts for many years as an aggregate.   I think all if not the majority of the judges will be in The Grip Well if that says anything. :)

The judging and strictness Wanna is what makes these certs legit. I definitely can't wait until I can make a go at things :rock

Very good attempts Tommy on that heavy gripper. You have become very strong in still a very short timeframe. Everything's said on the filming already. You keep your mind on the gripper, the other person films. That's what will make you close it next time.
