Calibrated Tns & Ccs Close


Paul Knight

Recommended Posts

OK, Here's the first stab at putting this all together. The two main categories are CCS closes and TNS closes. The TNS closes will be broken down into two sub groups until we get more data points. These will be Narrow Spread (<2.75") & Normal Spread (>2.75"). When we get more spread measurements, I plan on adding a wide spread category (probably >3.00").

Rankings within these groups will be done like this:

- Heaviest calibrated gripper within a group wins.

- If there is a tie in the TNS category, the gripper with the widest spread wins. Please measure your gripper spreads and include in your posts!!! I will measure mine tonight and include. If there is a tie and one has spread measured and other one doesn't, measured gripper wins.

- Video is not necessary, however, it is welcome. Once I figure out how to link video to your name, I will clean this up.

- One caveat to the video section: If you are claiming some crazy gripper close that seems outside the realm of probability, you should submit a video.

- We will allow non-calibrated grippers for this, however, you will be below all calibrated grippers of the same type. In other words, your "hard #3" will be below a calibrated #3 of 142#. Your uncalibrated #3 will be above a calibrated 2.5, but below all calibrated #3's. Calibration and spread measurement always rule. Some people don't have access to calibration equipment (me :blush ) so we encourage you to post, but calibrated grippers win - always. :D This has worked well in the coin challenge, so I stole it. ;)

- Contrary to popular belief, I am fallible, so I will just tell you now that I will make mistakes. Please bear with me and don't hesitate to correct me if you catch an error.

So here is my first stab at this. Any and all suggestions will be welcome. I'm sure this will evolve over time with everyone's input.

Let me know what you guys think. Crush and Post!!!!!!

Quite new to posting. I have read alot of good posts on GripBoard but it's the first time I reply. Consider this as a test.

A lot of guys are keeping to amaze me here on this board. Without the internet I'd be living here in Holland thinking that I'm quite a 'big boy' closing a #3 MMS

CCS #3.5 TNS RB330C TNS #3

153, great number. Right down the respectible middle. Nice close, and you had a bit more in the tank. I would expect a MM3 cert in the near future.

I would like to adress a big "thank you" to all of you for all the good stuf you've posted on GripBoard. The level at which you've pushed hand strength and especially grip strength is really impressive. It's rewarding to see the progress you make.

Thanks again

Dave Thorton and I have done a 141 HG300 TNS, spread less than 2.5. Jedd did an RB300N that is not calibrated, but it is 151-155.

Wade, Jedd and myself all had a run on these same RB cert grippers

BTW, I think Helsep's close belongs at the top of the list. Also, Ben Edwards has done some big TNS stuff.

I don't have a calibration or spread for Tommy's gripper. Without that, I had to put his SE below the 330 closes. It could very well be harder than the 330's but I just don't have the data. :(

Ben, let me know what you have done and I will add you on!

Add me for a #2.5 CCS (uncalibrated) :) I've unfortunately fractured my left wrist and elbow so big things aren't gonna happen for a while :(

Thanks Bob! Haven't been keeping track of this buddy...

I've TNS closed my 169lb easy Super Elite. Travis Mickelberry (tmmicklabs) witnessed it last August but it got lost in the shuffle since I bent a Fantastic that day too. :D

What was the spread on that one Ben?

I've never TNS'd a RB330N, it was a 300N but that 155# sounds right.

Oops. I copied it wrong Josh. Thanks for the honesty bro.

I thought Tommy's BBSE's spread was known....?

Nobody has told me what it was yet. If anyone knows for sure, just post it.

I did the TNS on my #2.5 IM. Do I need to measure the inside of the handles or the outside edges of the handle?
