Updated!

Took out some lifts, added grippers. Until someone else closes a #4 in a comp the list is fine, if someone else does I would hope to calibrate both grippers.

With due respect, Bob, but just wondering why Ryan Klein's V-Bar of 386 lbs, performed at the '06 Calif State Championships at my gym, isn't listed as a record?? It was done on your official bar and performed within the rules...Ryan's a very strong man, and certainly deserving of the record.

Kevin, I can't be answering for Bob, but let me add something. In the last two years, the Europeans have made a big issue of "calibrated plates" and using an official "LGC replica bar". At first, we Americans thought that WAY too much was being made about it, and we joked about it. Over time, virtually everyone has accepted it, and like official IM #3 certifications, respected it. However this is not "world record", this is America, and Bob can do what he wants to do. On the one hand, the calibrated 385 number is beyond reproach. On the other hand, it is possible that "your" 386 is 390.77 pounds.

In international competitions, the LGC bar is the standard because it was first. The Fat Bastard Barbell Company vertical bar is the next best thing, as it is well made and respected by all. However, they are slightly different and the LGC bar may be 1-5% more difficult, according to those who have tested and worked with both.

I would say it is up to Bob.

However, on a different subject, there is a NO BRAINER from your contest Kevin. The "grip contest" Rolling Thunder American Record was completely exploded by Odd and needs to be added to the list. I know Odd thought the American Record is not his, but the record he was trying to break is actually not recognized by us grip guys, as it may have been in a single event contest. So the Power Palace will get credit for one under anyone's interpretation.

Also, Bob, I say tongue-in-cheek, how about two new categories for American grip contest records, IM Hub (vbar style) 80.5, and IM Hub (claw style) 73? If you do that, people will start contesting it more and the bar will be raised!

I added the Rolling Thunder back. You are right Mike, no brainer. I think I took it off because of the difference between implements, and because it was questioned whether Zach lifted on a real IM Rolling Thunder.

Kevin- Ryan and I talked about this, and he conceded the record because Chad's weights were calbrated. Hell, if you decide to weigh everything out, let me know. Any other comments just send me a PM!

Mike- I'll think about the Hub! Reason I haven't bothered (I did think about it) is because it is very rarely contested.

Keep the suggestions coming guys, I'm doing this record list thing just cause no one else is, so I appreciate any suggestions.

The freestyle bending records are not completely accurate and are in transition. There has been at least one hex bend that was rated under a mag bastard close at a particular contest.

From now on, I will count the bending per Eric Milfeld's 7 inch rule. I am expected the record list to be nearly wiped clean come the MI grip contest, so I will just keep Eric+Hadland on top with the Shiny, and the three other guys below him.

Just wanted to explain any discrepancies.
