Hey guys, I've asked some members for NN measurements, since I'm not able to purchase one - shipping would be more expensive than the implement + tax + duty cost, and that's if it even arrives. They both responded, but probably forgot about it or they are too busy, which I can completely understand.
So I've found a guy to build me a replica and he's waiting for the measurements, so I gotta get them ASAP. The measurements are:
Main bar length, diameter, and the width of wider portion
Rolling handle length (the part where my hand goes) and hole diameter
This would help me out immensely, because if I don't have them, we need to kinda improvise from the pictures.
Just so you know, the implement will be used only by me with zero financial gain or intent of such, I just like the concept.
You can write it to my inbox or here, it doesn't matter.
Thank you in advance.
I officially begin grip training this week in an attempt to someday become competitive among the ranks of Texas locals Adam Glass and the pound-for-pound Titan that is Tanner Merkle. Fat gripz and axle bars will be subbed in over a standard barbell for much of my regular strength and conditioning work in addition to allotting three days each week to focus on grip work specifically using the protocal and implements I outlined below. If anyone has any recommendations or suggestions, please don't hesitate to give me a shout below! Feeling pretty damn excited about this new pursuit into grip sport.

Just did a volume workout with a captains of crush #1, just kept adding reps until I got to 620 reps mms which isn’t crazy, next step? I might go for 1000 reps mms in as short a time as possible just to see where I fail(I also do this with credit card set often)
