What is the significance of the single/double or no stamped on the grippers?

You don't own an easier Gripper than a #3? Sold? Or did you start training with the #3?

Started with a #2 which I filed for KTA then eventually traded for my 2nd #4.

This new guy here has 10 grippers.

Store bought (maybe like a HG 60 would be)

HG 100

HG 150 (people say this is like the trainer)(my wife is 1/16' away from close)

HG 200 (perhaps a .9 or .95 just a tad easier than the 2004 #1 and HG's new closer spacing (2.5 in rather than 2.75)

IM #1 (all IM's are new 2004's)

IM #2

HG 250 (this one is the older wider spacing (same as IM #2) and is maybe a 2.05 or 2.1)

HG 300 (about a 2.5 and an ideal gripper to help train towards the 3)

IM #3

IM #4 (dream on Neil, but I'll use this for NC's to go for the 3 once I can close the HG 300 reliably (although I'll need a 3.5 as well to train))

Hi,

I have got to ask, how many different types of grippers are there? I am not familiar with the two letter abbreviations.

:help

How do they rate against each other? I appreciate that one gripper measured against another even of the same type and rating will vary, but a rough guide would help.

Chris

Personally I own Coc #1 , RB160, 210, 240 & 260 Although anything above the #2 :laugh at me!

This describes me too! :blush

Nothing wrong with being a gripperaholic... ther are worse things to get into!

The grippers are, IMHO, by far the best device to train with; they are small, inexpensive and you can take them anywhere and get a good grip workout anytime!! :happy

O.K., O.K. - I'm really addicted!!! :cry

I have seven new IM's coming my way for my B-day! Had to.... I tried out a friend's new IronMind #2 and it was sssooooo sweet it gave me a cavity!! :)

The new springs remind me of the RB's and the NEW #2's are stinky tough!... oh, it was pure music to my hands to close that tough gripper! Anyone that was thinking about getting a new IM gripper, do it now you won't be disappointed!

THIS MESSAGE WAS BOUGHT AND PAID FOR BY RANDALL STROSSEN/IRONMIND ENTERPRISES, INC.

J/K!! I have bought so many grippers from IronMind that Randy could now buy that new yacht that he has had his eye on thanks to me!! :laugh:bow

Just 10 for me...in order of difficulty

IM #1 (2004 filed)

PDA 243 (2004 filed)

IM #2 (2004 filed)

BBSM (2005)

PDA 262 (2005)

BBGM (2005)

IM #3 (2005)

RB 240 (2005 just received it today and became my favorite)

BBE (2005)

IM #4 (2005)

and the ISG of course...

The COC #3 has a chrome type spring but my number #4 is just plain black spring...Just wondering if anybody has ordered from IM lately and are geting chrome springs....

The black chromed steel gripper from RB is a piece of art. I can chest crush it and it feels a lot harder than my number #3. Needless to say I will be getting the

whole collection from RB and just to be complete I'll order the remaining BBs :)
