That's strange, my best hold on 3.5 is 24 seconds and I've done 20 with the #4 208. My hope is that they oiled it up really good so it's easier xD

Similar for me with the #3 & #3.5. I really can't set the #4 though.

I think it could have made it a few lbs easier for sure 

Definitely. I remember there was one competition in the USA a few years ago. Can't remember which. Where the grippers was not cleaned and lubricated and everyone got lower results.

There's one #2.5 at the gym I train, which is extremely hard. Feels clearly above 140#. I think it's because it has been there in the gym for years and has never been cleaned and lubricated.

Yup I have had a similar experience myself. When I first closed my 2 as a teenager I felt really good about myself, then I tried an old one at the pwl gym here and barely broke paralell and felt like shit 😛 it was rusty as hell though

Got my grippers rated by gods of grip! Apparently I'm weaker then i thought xD 

#3 -146 

#3.5 171???!!!? 

#4 208 

Im thinking about sending my grippers to them as well, had a few questions.

Did you like the service?

How long did it take to ship there and back? I know shipping is very slow ATM because of Covid

Did you have to pay taxes when they sent your gripper back because England is no longer EU?

I sent the grippers on Monday and they arrived at Friday. The grippers were rated the day after so fast service. I haven't got them back yet since it was yesterday ^^ 

I don't think so, but we will see!

Oh so they tell you the ratings for your grippers before you get them back. That makes more sense.

Haha nä egentligen inte.. 

 

Fun fact, there is only 13 guys from sweden who have certed. 7 of them before ccs 2004 2 during 2004. So I could be the 7th guy in Sweden certing with CCS. Would be cool!

Due to Corona I can't do the Ironmind cert! They will notify me when it's possible again.

Hoppas jag blir din domare så jag kan döma bort dig trots övertygande stängning och överkross.

Det hade varit toppen om du blev min domare! Jag har redan planer på att komma upp till Örebro inom kort och leka med dina prylar + bryta armen av mig.

Av erfarenhet vet jag ju att du är fullkomligt oförmögen att få någonting att fastna på dina implents. Så det är nog lugnt 😅
