CCS = Credit Card Set (CoC set)

MMS = Mash Monster Set

TNS = ?

NS = No set?

Any other thingies like this you can think of? Maybe something like this can go in the FAQ?

You use your hand to place the gripper but not to aid in closing it-no set

Pick the gripper up off a flat surface w/ the hand your attempting with and close it, other hand never touches it. Total or table no set

Proly some disputes out there that using the other hand in any way is considered a set. who knows

In a a no set you are allowed to "position" the gripper in the gripping hand then let go and close the gripper with the "gripper" hand.

In a TNS only one hand is used ....period.

I'm pretty new as well, and I'm kind of taking note of a lot of things I had to figure out myself that weren't in the current FAQ. That way, I can help expand it if I'm still around in a year or so. The FAQ is good as it is, and KTA helped with a lot of the terms regarding gripper technique.
