      IMO, yes it was.  The reasons for this have been covered quite a bit over the years (sorry, I won't use the Search to find the threads) but for me it came down to the old handle: (1)  not rotating quite so well after a good deal of use, and (2)  the ability to deform the handle just enough (via tight squeezing) and reduce the rotation effect when lifting.  Both the above are not really an issue with the current (better quality) RT handle, and given the design differences with the Crusher it is not possible for either issue to occur. Factor in the slightly larger diameter of the Crusher (which equates to an extra 9.97mm of circumference) and I can see why Crusher numbers are noticeably lower. Dave

      Was it really that different? I’ve only used the new one and it was at 2 comps. Only time I ever touched one

      41.5 lbs 5" bullring, 68.5 lbs ironmind hub right only. Blobs felt weak, so tried deep dish plate rim keypinch, got 90lbs. Hard to balance, will take some getting used to.

      The old model (current during the start of this thread) rolling thunder was way easier, especially after some use. For me like 125 2.5 crusher, around 150 old RT. And the difference probably increases as you go up in weight.

      I tagged you in a post about the Iron Grip calibrated bars about 3 weeks ago.  Did you ever bend one of those bars barehand?

      Me breaking single jack chain #8 by 3foot long with only my hands and gloves. I've searched everywhere and cant find anything on anyone breaking number 8 with their hands, only other ways. Let me know what you guys think and also if you know anyone who has done this feat before. Have a great fathers day.

      Possible or not?,  
      I just set my goals for 2018 and am not sure if they are crazy or impossible, but one thing is for sure I'm going to give it my all.
      COC 3: Now I can close it with a relatively wide set, but not with Credit card : Goal - COC 3 certification. COC 3.5: Now - 1 cm from close : Goal - parallel set close.  GHP 8:  Now - 1cm from close: Goal - parallel set close Iron Mind Pinch Grip Block: Now - 27.5kg: Goal - 35kg Iron Mind Rolling Thunder: Now - 67.5: Goal - 80kg Right Hand MM2, Left Hand MM1 Electronic Hand Dyno.: Now - 80KG: Goal 95KG  Well, there's no point in setting easy goals, if I can get 5 of the 7, it will be great !.
       2019 goal is pretty simple, Tetting Hercules with credit card set.😅

      Bought a used single stamp #3 with the old type spring for a good price and almost new, seller sold it because he 'underestimated it'. Apparently so did I! Tried setting it parallel and didn't move much further. I can close my other 3 set to parallel occasionally, this feels a lot closer to my #3.5. Crazy tough
