I didn't follow what the four positions are. Did you mean:
1) RH regular
2) RH inverted
3) LH regular
4) LH inverted

Well, any stalwart gripsters out there that can do this?
2(standard grip right and left) out of 4 yes. Upside down on left easier than right for me but not closed (could close 2.5 upside down on left)

As usual , thanks for stepping up Andrew! Interested in others giving it a try too!
I already know I can't (yet)...but I suspect Chez has a shot at it.

I can no set close a #3 with my right hand and I have closed a #3 Credit Card Set with my left hand. I haven't really tried inverted closes though. The last time I did was when I first started training grippers. I have no clue how good I am at inverted closes. I have been focusing on bending the last couple weeks. I'm starting to ramp up grippers again so I'll give it a shot in a couple weeks once my crush strength is back up.

Paul Knight closed a #143 rated #3 in all 4 positions at my house on one of his visits.
Not surprising back when he did this! I do think this is quite impressive for anyone to pull this off though!

I approached this maybe a little differently. As a sort of test of evenness - I'm not at the level of a #3 closer so I tried the 4 ways with a 2.5 and managed that all 4 ways. It was very hard left inverted and took me a few tries to get it that way.

Ok a different thing to try.............stack a #1 on top of a #2 and in one squeeze close wide set or TNS them both. I used to try that from time to time about two decades ago.....never totally closed both( got close) if my memory serves me correctly. Ok Paul......lets see you work on them!

Most guys have no idea how hard it is to TNS close even two Trainers stacked on each other.
