He looked like he had power to spare in this close. I think he'll get the 4!

I mean, @riccardomagni or @ClayEdgin  did he talk about where he is at with the 4?  Based on how that 3.5 cert went, I’d be surprised if he were far off. 

Carl is very soft spoken and humble.  He's not going to outwardly brag about anything.  He hasn't tried the 4 yet but when he gets ready, I'm sure that we'll all hear about it.

Seems like a world class guy in strength and composure!

Weird I've never heard of this guy, has he never done any grip contests? He should do the European championships. 

Not at all to offend, but its a lot like what your story will be if you dont start certing something.

Carl lives in Southern California now and he started competing in grip contests a year or two ago. He has mostly (exclusively?) competed in Odd Haugen’s Fit Expo events.

Not exactly as I have done things like the European championships I talk of (got 2nd in opens last year). I do plan on certing the 3.5 with both hands this year if #4 doesn't go but my story is far from over dude. Right now I'm focusing on my strongman comp.

Mmhmm. Yeah me too. 3.5 ccs is too easy for me to bother with a cert at this time as well..

I guess I was trying to say what Tommy was saying without the chain-jerking. I have seen many times, gripsters of all levels, talking about the Number 4. The reality is that the 3.5 is obviously one badass gripper. You don't think Clay Edgin is not certified on that sucker because he does not respect it? How about Jedd Johnson?  No, that 3.5 sucker is a bad mother. I don't know, I was happy to see John start this thread, and am happy that we can celebrate the last two guys accomplishments with pulling it off. It is NOT a common event.

Agreed.

 

however, i do believe Paul has the strength to cert the 3.5 in at least 1 hand right now. I will continue poking him until he does it. Im usually good for about once a year trolling Paul trying to get him to go ahead with the 3.5 cert. 😬

It's a huge deal!  What makes it even more exciting is how easy he appeared to do it!  I would love to see someone close the #4 with a CCS.  No one has done it yet right?

No one. Anyone who claims to have done a no set like Kinney isn't honest too (Even JK). The closest I saw was that Romanian AW who was extremely close on his cert but didn't get it. His name is ioan puscasu. And man he had paws of a bear and gorilla combined.

I read some old posts claiming it has been done by Nathan H, but if there's no proof it's just a claim of course. Ioan's attempts are all incredible.

Does anyone know if Ioan is still training for the #4 cert? If I was that close, I wouldn't give up.

Also, when Nathan certified on the GHP 9, I feel like Wade definitely hinted that there was additional footage which he was not authorized to publish, but showed further mastery over the gripper than the actual cert attempt.  I can't remember if it was reps or wider sets or both or what.  Maybe he didn't say exactly and I filled in the blanks.   

Were the old posts you found by Chris James?  I think he trained with Nathan and would leak info sometimes.  I also thought that someone had witnessed Nathan do it in training or something, that's familiar to me.

Would be great to see more GHP 9 footage from him! And yes, it must have been Chris James' log:
 

 

Also, I really should mention: INSANE JOB CARL!

On this moment, for the time being, as far as I know, Ioan Puscasu trains only for armwrestling, sometimes.
