https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M78Ds-m9wNw I literally just got this 1hr ago. I was so excited to have that elusive sub-140 #3 that I ran upstairs and recorded/uploaded this vid right away. As al

Yeah... But it's a training video, right? That's the "cloud of doubt" coming through. I felt it too. It will be nice after he meets with Jedd. All things considered, that's a pretty dang solid clos

lol some of these guys make me laugh with the requests to open grippers and all this. The guy obviously likes to make videos and project a persona while having fun. I will watch any video by this guy

Dude, huge congrats on being able to snag this! Very rare and saught after indeed. Well I'll just throw this out there but if you ever get tired of it and want someone to take it off your hands I call dibs!! haha. Happy Crushing!

a ghp block has nothing to do with a mash monster set. you should review the rules if you think your ready for the MM ladder.

also, for the MM0 the video has to be submitted and voted on.

Thx for the correction on the GHP block. Now I know better lol

And I know about the MM0 video submission rules, this video I uploaded is just an unboxing, not a MM0 submission.

No matter the low rating, it's still a #3 and you're sitting on alot of gripper strength to be able to TNS it. Strong work brother!

I was adding that about the MM0 because it was mentioned. that's the kind of thing that gets stuck in someones head and then they don't understand why their posted 3 close wasn't good enough, etc.

Entertaining for sure! That's definitely the 138 tag I made. Sorry, it might just be me, but for the life of me I cannot see the stamps on the gripper even in 720p. Would you consider taking a clearer video without all the cuts? Even if you show the stamps, if there is a splice in the video afterward, well, why show the stamps?

You definitely have the right "gear". Your thumb pad is huge.

Glad you liked it! I'm actually finishing up my last grip workout before meeting Napalm on Wed... let me get my camera

I appreciate your willingness to squash doubts this time around! I think you have the strength, but also a cloud of doubt to overcome. And the blurriness and edits leave questions. You have a good attitude about the criticism though, thank you.

I don't mean to be too much of a skeptic, and I realize a meeting with Jedd is already upcoming, but shouldn't the video close also include the opening of the gripper?

Here is something else I think about a lot:

I, 160# Matt Cannon, can no set that same gripper down to about 1/4". I did before it shipped. I destroyed it with a ~25mm set. DESTROYED in a way that would embarrass your mother. I underwrite mortgages for a living and we spend a lot of time talking about "reasonableness". Does this income make sense? Does this janitor make $76k per year? He's been there 26 years. Is it reasonable?

I have no business closing #3s. My wrists get sore when I do push-ups. I have arthritis. I can't grow a full beard. But I can crush #3s?

This gripper is a #3, yes. But it's a daisy to be sure. Euclides at 6'3" 290 with que ball thumb pads has every right no-setting this gripper. It's reasonable. It's a training video and he shut the gripper and it makes sense and it's actually only marginally impressive for someone that size.

I'm ready to just watch the show. No outlandish claims are being made so far.

The Video in post #1 has him opening the package, the second video shows the stamp clearly and a second close.

That was what i was thinking. A guy that huge with those hands TNSing that #3 is equivalent to a non-athletic 6'4 220lb guy who can casually slam dunk. I'll be much more interested to see how the meeting with Jed goes. Frankly I hope he meets with someone credible once he begins closing the big grippers again, i.e. if he closes the GHP 9 again with a deep set, that would be much more impressive. That being said I couldn't have done better.

lol some of these guys make me laugh with the requests to open grippers and all this. The guy obviously likes to make videos and project a persona while having fun. I will watch any video by this guy as they are entertaining. Good to see some personality in grip videos.

Exactly. Far more entertaining than me trying to shut my kids up for 30 seconds so I can try to get a close filmed on my phone. Haha.

And I might be wrong on this, but I think there's an unwritten rule that the burden of proof around here starts with grippers beyond #3 level. I think we can dust off the monocles once the #4 cert claims start back up.
