I bought one of your hubs. It a good piece of equipment. Just out of curiosity, why was that height and diameter chosen?

Thank you for the well built equipment,

Joshua

We try with" hands on "experience to develop our equipment and always seek to make it better when we can. Ihave done hub lifts on barbell plates for over 40 years but the old deep dish Yorks are long gone and plates vary so much we tried to use a universal size hub to grip on to that replicates a barbell hub of old and the fingers when engaged are in a functional fairly straight position. Just enough depth and width to be a valid grip builder. We can do custom hubs and also media blasted "raw" steel as well by special request. The 2.39" diameter is chosen to be within a few thousandths of the handle of the famed Inch Dumbbell as well keeping with history and a reasonable size for all. I have always personally had some real success with wider hubs and if enough interest we can add one to our offerings. Thank you for your question and support! Richard

I just ordered this item and I'm excited to start training on it.  I'm also hoping the variety will give some good carryover to the IM Hub, which seems to be in fashion in competitions nowadays.  I would definitely be interested in a hub trainer wider than the IM also in Sorinex starts producing one.

Thank you for the prompt reply, Mr. Sorin. I wondered if the size was specific to certain barbell plates or for a specific training application. Additional sizes would always be of interest.

You wont be disappointed.
