Mark Henry... The most incredible(yet not fully tapped) potential for strength anyone has ever been gifted with, I'll stand by my words here. If Henry wanted to he could take down ANY record in the strength world, ANY RECORD. After all, this is the guy who won the Arnold with only 2(?) months of actual training.

Was anybody there during his training(2 months)? People are put here to do certain things and

that is it. Do you think that Sam Walton just happened to think of this magnificent retail paradigm while

working for K-Mart? He was put here for a reason.

I voted for Kevin Bussi!

I feel honered that you voted for me! :)

Martin, after seeing your great #3.5 close I think you'll be next. Also the fact your doing with both hands is pretty special :mosher How far have you got on your attempts on the #4? When you do close it please add on youtube, your vids are good man and make the impossible (for me) seem possible.

Thanks, again :)

It's a really a big step from #3.5 to #4, It's been a long time since I tried my #4, but somwhere between 4-5mm with both hands.

Thanks also to those that voted for me...I am trying VERY hard in my workouts to improve on the #4. I closed Martin A's 3.81 and barely missed his 3.89 at the MGC. I closed the P4 at Richards...but a credit card set is a different ball game...but I will keep trying till my hand falls off :mosher

I voted for Steve G because be hardly sets the gripper, never has done, and he's still closing big grippers. Let me know if you need my #4 again steve - it would be great to see it closed.

Chad also has immense crushing power. Chad, have you tried a credit card close with a 3.5?

Fine with me. I have no life, anyway, so I read your whole training log and I was impressed.

I'm going with Chad as he actually has the horsepower AND the handsize to pull it off. If he was training for it though, I'd pick Dave Morton. He has the best crush in the world IMO.

Wes would do it if he were motivated enough!! Or so I think.

He has the motivation, it's only a matter of time. I hope I don't make him get a big head and screw up by saying that tho lol.

Thanks for the votes. Credit card setting that 3.5 was one of the toughest things I've done and the 4 (if it happens) will be a prettty long time coming. But I would definitively say John Wood, if he put his mind to it. Seeing as there have been multiple witnesses that have seen him get a #4 to a 1/4'' (and less) with no chalk and NO SET. As this is the best witnessed performance on a #4 with no set (as far as I know) it would be logical to say that he would. :rock

I voted for Kevin. But does anyone remember that football player guy the got the #4 TNS to 1/2" with broken hands? (I assumed he did TNS because his other hands was broken) He should be on the list too.

i remember reading about that guy too! here is the news from the Ironmind website that i just came across

Vache Sevajian, with a torn pec no less, came within half an inch of closing a No. 4 Captains of Crush gripper at the GNC Grip Gauntlet yesterday and, also with a legal start, he dominated a No. 3 CoC straight from the package. Randall J. Strossen, Ph.D. photo.

20-year old Vache Sevajian came over to the GNC booth and asked to try his hand at the Captains of Crush grippers - Wade said he was skeptical and wondered “Who is this guy?” and figured it was going to be another case of more bluster or bravado than horsepower, but when Vache crushed the No. 3 and clamped down a No. 4 to about one-half inch, out came the Captains of Crush card for a legal start, a brand new No. 3 Captains of Crush gripper was opened on the spot and guess who slammed it shut and then stood there holding it?

Wade Gillingham is a pretty calm guy, but he came running out of the Expo Hall at the FitExpo to track down Randall Strossen at the strongman competition. “You want to see something?!” he said; and so here we go, just like with Tex Henderson, out of the blue, a guy comes along who has absolutely devastating grip strength, and it’s all the more impressive because it comes in the package of big but modest guy who is about as far from a grip specialist as one could imagine.

And to top things off, Vache also completed the GNC Grip Gauntlet - it was quite a night for this young man.

when i made this poll, i only put names of people who i thought were training grippers at the moment, but obviously there are a load of other guys who have the potential to CCS a no.4 and there are a load of names that didn't occur to me at the time.

He's that UCLA thrower isn't he? He's a member here but doesn't really post much.

I've searched for John Wood pics of gripper closes in the past, but I can't find any. All I've found is can-bursting videos and some other random stuff. I didn't know he was THAT good with grippers.

Both he and his dad (esp his dad) have made a lot of noise about the use of chalk (dad) and using TNS for grippers (John).

Assuming the grippers stay fairly consistent and it's out of the package and done according to the credit card rules, do we have any data besides speculation that anyone is anywhere near a country mile of doing it?

The best gripper performance I've ever witnessed was the 3.81 close from Chad, a gripper, Steve and Martin and nobody else never closed yet, as far as I know. So I think from the guys I know in person, Chad has the best chance of doing it, although it is still a very very long and hard way for him to close a new #4 CCS. Also handsize comes into play with the CCS, which is not a big problem for Steve and Chad, but for Martin I think.

I would like to see a video of Wes closing the 3.5 CCS, is there a link? This is an superb feat of gripstrength!! Is anybody else here on the board who can do this? I honestly don't think so, but of course I would really like to see someone doing it!

I've never had the opportunity to actually try the 3.81 and I thought that Martin had and actually got it with a very close set?? It was available at the last 2 Europeans (06 and 07) and at the LGC's and at the German's - none of which I attended (I was last in Europe in 05 to compete).

There are a lot of things John Wood can supposedly do, few of which have ever actually produced pics or video.

I have watched John in action using my grippers, John is the real deal with grippers.
