I was anxious to get back to some bending.  Wanted to wait until the weekend, but too difficult!  One of my big goals for 2018 is to snap a Red Nail.  This was the first HRS bar of the same dimension I've done to-date.

Braced Snap
Red Nail https://www.gripboard.com/index.php?/topic/48741-ironmind-red-nail-snap/


I decided to attempt the Red Nail break today.  Definitely a tough bend but didn't take as long as I thought. (I was expecting 20+ minutes, but was able to get it in around 8 minutes.)  The next goal with this feat would be smaller/thinner wraps, which I will continue working towards.
