So, its been about a year since I posted a video.  In that time I was healing from massive injuries in my hands and wrist.  this is the beginning to my bending return.  This is the second edgin in that time and probably 6th time bending.

 

These are the black edgins that were rumored to be a bitch to bend.  Hopefully the guys I sent these to will chime in.  so after this I am 100% pain free and feeling good.   This is a huge hit to my bending esteem, i went from bending big g8s in these exact wraps back to edgins, my warm-up bend.  Im a sad panda.

Enjoy!

Glad to see you hitting it again.  It's always rough having to take time off to heal up.

Thanks Tom. It feels good to have the steel back in my hands.

Thanks Tim. I suppose healing up is better than bending in a cast, or surgery.

  

EJ, your ceiling is unlimited with this. Great to see you back at it!

Thanks. I really hope you are right. I have some big bends planned for the next year. We will see how it goes.

Word. Thats a pretty sick bend for not having bent in a year dude. And yes, those black edgins were literally the hardest edgins ive ever bent. And imo, they werent that far off from BG8's we were bending in the past. Id even be so bold as to say they were within 30-35 lbs of each other.

Helluva strong bend for not having been at it for a full year. I doubt I could bend an Edgin in doubles never mind in fricken BBW's these days!

Incredible bend man I know you think you have lost some strength but it really doesn't look like it to me. Now that your feeling strong if your motivated I'm interested to see what bends you decide to go after.

 

I was wondering if the old benders battlefield records were lost or if we could restart them here? I know the horeshoe bends were saved but I enjoyed the other bends.

That shit is funny lol.

You really think so? Before this I destroyed a 595Q bar but was shut down by a 640R bar. So I'd say these are 600-630 but I think I'm being very generous. The big g8s are less than 700 but more than 660. I know that for a fact.

 

Glad you are all healed up and back at EJ. You are still crazy strong. I wish I could bend that.

Thanks man. It took me a long time to get here. And I guess this is my guaranteed bend.

Thanks so much for the kind words. You were so close to killing one of these too. I hope you come back and smash one.

We will see how my body holds up. I will never give up steel bending.

Helluva strong bend for not having been at it for a full year. I doubt I could bend an Edgin in doubles never mind in fricken BBW's these days!

But I'm sure you could kill an ssp4 right now with no sweat at all. You were/are a horseshoe MONSTER

Thanks Stephen you were always one of the talented reverse benders. Since you asked about my future goals I have two in mind. The koasb and the gold. I have figured out the progression to both and have had many pieces of steel machined to meet the progression measurement.

As far as I know, everything was lost. All the Certs, rules, stickies, logs - everything. And that sucks. We wrote and had some great information on there.

I think so.. Lets put it this way, i got a BG8 in single imps just as far as i got one of those black edgins in single imps.. Maybe 15 degrees if i had to guess. Looking back though its hard to say if they were that close. There was, i think, a month or so span between the black edgin and a G8. So its possible in that month that i got a little stronger by the time i was messing with the G8s.
One thing i am certain of in comparing the two- i remember them both bringing identical pain. Lol

An edgin in imps and a big G8 in bb wraps is without a doubt the same pain. You are correct. And there were a few months were WE went head to head, and kept getting stronger. So I have no doubt in a months time you got stronger, I was right there with you.
