The Nailman's Top 50 & Top 20 Bending List (merged) 9-28-14

Recommended Posts

I have a red cert nail on the way to Ironmind along with a 6.5 bent red. That should bump me up a few notches.

Gary, I moved you up more than a few notches, due to the fact you killed a 6.5" for your witness. :)

Cool list. As it happens, I found myself near a craft store today so I picked up some leather and bent some stuff. I need to see if I have any more of those 5/16" G5's and if I can even bend them anymore.

I'v made a few more minor adjustments to the list.

I think I'll "freeze" the list at the end of each year so we can see all the best bends to date at the end of each year. I won't erase the list and start all over from scratch, I'll just simply make any further adjustments on the following year's list.

So in about 23 days or so we will see a new list? Just giving you crap man, this is a great list and it is a great motivator. Bending a Grade 8 and making 49 was huge and man it did push me to break down some barriers and shoot for the top! Thanks for the woek man.

FBBC (see the sponsor button at the top of the page) has 5/16" CRS bars. Here is some information on who certified bending them at each level. You can purchase the bars through him.

Eric,

I will send a couple out to you this week. They are great bolts but so expensive that nobody will bend them instead of reds since the reds are actually cheaper and they are pretty close in strength.

I was pleased to add Nick Savona (diesel) to the list. He posted a video of his 30 second Red demolition using IM pads, performed with fire and fury, a while back. But because he was not on the Gripboard certs list I overlooked him. Sorry Nick. This does bring up a good point, though. I've decided to add names to the list without a Gripboard member witnessing the bend, if good, clear video is made available, and the bender is in good standing with the Gripboard.

Sooo, if some of you other guys who might fall under this category want to speak up and direct me to your video I'll gladly add your name to the list. Thanks.

Congratulations to Anuwbius (Ethan Wolf) and Oldtime (Jon Elder) for making the list. They've both posted videos of their respective bends. Ethan bent the Big Bastard bar, but I classified it by its dimensions, as he isn't certified with FBBC. These guys are both phenomenal young benders with a bunch more in them!

Thanks eric. :)

I tried a 5.75 red, but the video turned out to be way too long, I did get it but it was a big struggle and took alot out of me.

I got a 6.5 fbbc bend on video but the 5.75 took alot out of me, reguardless i got it, and am trying to host it.

does this mean you can cert for the gripboard without a witness as long as you have good clear video now?

or is it just for the list?
