When I ordered his video (which I highly recommend) a few years back I wrote him a letter asking him some questions and he was kind enough to answer each one. I asked him:

"what gripper could you close when you first started"

He responded "About 4-5 days after I got the #2 I could close it. I never ordered a #1--- just started out with the #2."

You have no idea how GREAT it is that you have cleared this up, as the rumor that he was unable to close the #1 at first is very wide spread nowdays, it seems. So his handstrength was quite a bit above average to begin with, since the avg. man can't close the #1 first try, and he closed the #2 in 5 days, heh.

Given that IM / Randall used to claim that he asked for a 3 and they said 'buy a 2 - very few shut a 3 first time out' and then added 'but in a very short time he had overcome the 2 and then the 3' god knows where a stupid rumor about him struggling with a 1 came from.

Plus give me a break about hand size. It is tired and boring. Joe didn't ask about hand size - I doubt he even cared he just got to work and kicked ass.

I thought it was more like 7 1/2. Keep in mind that most of us here are bigger than average.

That's right, I doubt it never crossed his mind.

That pretty much sums it up. Kinney trained harder than just about anyone, and it showed.

Haha, this guy is the best example of being legendary! :D

The 4# close is being discussed, the Inch passing, the 1# close..........

For me he's the real deal - if he had done the Inch thing and the 4# or not! :rock

Alawadhi,

Joe Kinney told me quite some time ago that he could pass the Inch from hand to hand. I didn't see him do it personally, therefore I'll let you decide as to whether or not he did do it.
