All feedback is very welcomed and is taken into consideration. I can assure you that any and all decisions made for Nationals are done by a group and thoroughly discussed for safety, ease of judging, effective grip test, speed of event.
I'm glad everyone liked the standardized grippers. That was a 2+ year project by many.
Standardizing the 2hp and multiple smooth-ish running platforms has been a 2-3 project as well. I remember when the euro pinch was more rare than an InchDB.
We have come a long way in the last few years and we do strive to continue getting better. We talked at length about a 2 handed pinch curl, but there is history of biceps/forearm injuries from this very thing. Rules were based on the USAWA strict curl to create uniformity between similar organizations (our weight-classes as well).
Please continue giving feedback, it IS welcomed and noted. But hold judgement if you think a decision is made quickly, most are 6 months to multiple years in the making.
Lets continue to move this sport forward.
