Thanks Chez! This was also without firing CNS with lifting and no caffeine so feel pritty confident I would manage a cert :)

Awesome. I say send the paperwork in cause it will take time for them to find you a judge

@Chez has IM resumed certs for Coc? I know for most of the year it wasn’t an option. It looks like the world will come out of lock down with a brand fresh new batch of COC 3’s and maybe even a #4 — judging by Carl’s  ghp9 Double he may indeed be very close or already there #4 ccs

It is possible to cert, the rules are sligthly changed though because of corona. Someone should let Carl know.

Josh Goldthorp recently certed on the RedNail a week ago. He did it all on video without a judge and submitted it. He was the first to cert with an online submission.

I'm going to assume @Lennix will have a similar submission

Screw it, if I fail it's because I had a very bad day or got a very hard gripper. 

My #3 is in Sweden and I payed taxes for it so it will be sent to me in 3-5 days. They said most likely 5 days. Then I need it to be a weekend so I can get someone to film it properly and I will also do a video cert. Was going to keep it quite if I failed (or the Video certing which is a pilot wasn't public) but screw it I will crush that #3.

Shame you gotta pay taxes for something you're not keeping. There must be a way to get around Swedens import tax 😅

And you will no doubt crush the #3 💪

I already pay 33% income tax shouldn't really be necessary to pay handling fee and taxes on gifts xD

Yes you need a special permission to import something that you will send back. Bureaucracy at it's finest. They've intentionally made it so complicated for people, just so they can steal more money.

I know, that's probably the only good thing with the IM cert, you get to keep the gripper :D
