Big Tex Vs The #4


Recommended Posts

I just received confirmation Big and I mean "Big" Tex Henderson will be here at Sorinex during Chad Woodall,s Grip Gauntlet attempts and plans to shut by present rules a brand new, out of a sealed package #4. As an added incentive to greatness a prize of 1000.00 has been pledged for a successful, legal attempt on Friday July 27 by private donors. I have a feeling that the "gripper trail" may truly come full circle. RS

I hope Tex gets it.

The first to do the "new" rules of credit card set, right out of the package, deserves something special, I think that is a nice reward.

Okay, this is really exciting. I feel like Tex is obviously hitting CCS #4 closes in training or he wouldn't attempt the cert. He doesn't seem like the type who would lead with his ego and hope to be strong enough on cert day. My guess is Tex will have a #4 cert, $1000, and a piece of grip history.

Someone PLEASE get this on video.

If someone doesn't calibrate the gripper and get the close on video(without charging people to see it) I'll go completely insane! Good luck Tex with the #4, I've full confidence you'll do it!

Don't count on this happening. I won't hold my breath.

Let's get Tex get on the Mash Monster cert ladder. Heck, we'll give him a free opportunity to pass all lower levels and try to knock Dave Morton off the top.

We could make it that any #4 closer can challenge for the top Mash Monster spot without doing previous levels. But, no other position lower. They'd have to climb the ladder normally for the lower positions.

If Tex CCS's the no.4, surely he would be able to smash the MM6 right? I mean you might need a MM7 :blink

That sounds like a great idea!

If he closed the MM6, then we would need an MM7 level. Both Dave and him could have a grip off with the MM7.

When you mean "any #4 closer", you mean anyone we've seen a video of? Or anyone certified by IronMind?

Whatever the answer, that's pretty cool, I wish Tommy Heslep would one day jump in and say "mail that MM6 this way"...

Another interesting take on this from just last year:

Wasn't as well received then.

I like this idea and would say anyone recently cert'd by IM. Mash it, Tex ! .. neilkaz ..

Does anybody know anything about this guy? I'm just curious about who he is and what sort of background he has. Richard mentioned that he is a power lifter. Does anyone have any totals, age, body weight, etc. for him? Thanks for whatever information you may have on this guy.

True, but it's been more than a year since someone last closed the MM6, so I'd say there is a little more justification now.
