Thanks fellas it is good to be back in the game, I was warming the bench way to long. I renewed my commitment to myself and my Brothers of Steel for 2007 to be much more productive year of personal bests in all areas of grip and in my life in general. I had made the goal of being a Huge Bastard in 2006 and for various reasons some legit and some just my own procrastination I let time start slipping away from me fast.

The winning edge that pushed me the hardest to as we say down here in my Redneck of the Woods -GET-R DONE was the passing of my Grandfather on December 17th :inno which lit a fire in me to bend this one for him. He really thought my steel bending hobby was unique as he remembered a few strongman shows of his youth. He liked the fact he could show off his #1 Grandson's bending handy work at the coffee shop with the old retired southern gentleman think tank members. :blinkOh the #1 Grandson thing was not that he loved any more or less than his other grands, I was called that simply because I was the first born and male grandchild then a long stretch of girls came along and finally was ended with another male 17 years later so he and I are like protective bookends for all these girls. :angry: (don't even think about looking at her mister) :D

Well I will keep yall posted if anything significant gets bent in my hands and I just want to take this opportunity to say "KEEP UP THE PHENOMENAL JOB YALL ARE DOING!" It keeps all of us moving forward to achievement.

I've made another adjustment to the 2006 list. Scott Harris Jr. has made the #30 spot with a Huge Bastard certification, which he performed back in December. Congratulations, Scott!

Good Job Bill, John just added the cert to the site so now you are official!

I was the witness on this one and it was a tough bend, but Bill stuck it out and finished it within the timelimit.

Congrats,

- Aaron

Nope. I've retired the top 50 list because I think the top 20 lists are an improvement.

Rules

1) All bends must be completed within 5 minutes. Otherwise, all other Gripboard bending rules apply.

2) All FBBC certification bends will be recognized.

3) Bends performed in a contest in which all the other listed rules are followed will be recognized.

4) A video which shows the length of the bar, and the 2" maximum distance requirement is sufficient for proof.

5) If the strength of a bar is in question a calibration of that bar's batch will be required.

6) For a bend to rank higher than an existing bend it must calibrate atleast 20 pounds heavier.

7) For a bend to rank higher than an existing bend of the same stock it must be at least 1/2" shorter.

These particular top 20 lists are now frozen. I will be keeping new top 20 lists for all three lengths of bar with more stringent rules.
