Wow... is that real?? Haha he should have no excuse on thick bar 

Totally real.  His other fingers are long too, but the thumb is bizarre.  He'd have to beef up a little from the look of things.

Yea, gaining some size, that’s the easy part... the hand size thing is covered is the one he’s got in the bag!!

Most Inch dumbbell owners would likely be able to say who lifted theirs. The following individuals have lifted mine:

Eric Roussin
Devon Larratt
Brian Tamblyn
Shea Dickie
Jeff Slater
Jay Smith
Justin Major
Yves Gravelle

Tanner Merkle’s brother easily lifts it, I think his Dad might be able to as well

People who lifted on of the various 173 bells I had at my Minneapolis gym

Michael Sheehan

Josh Hanagarne

David Dellenave

Matt Brouse

Chris Mathison 

At the Dallas Europa Clay Edgin has a inch lift challenge booth. I was there all day with him. There were 6 guys who lifted it.i didn’t get their names. There were around 80 I saw try and utter fail who were over 240 lb. 

Ross Love from Houston lifted Paul K’s inch at a Metroflex contest. 

I’ve seen J.L. Holdsworth lift the inch

Morgan Choi 

Riccardo Magni 

Tom McClure lifted it at the Olympia

 

i saw Artos name come up - when I was at his house before the Bonehill contest he picked up his inch while chewing on a chicken leg effortlessly

For perspective, I'm 145, a good climber and am decent at thick bar. My heaviest baby inch lift was 127 and some partials with a 143. This lift is probably one of the greatest grip feats that most people don't know about.

Yes to this 

 

seriously a 145 lifter deadlifting it I see X10 more impressive than a 275-350 lifter cleaning it...after all more huge men have cleaned it than sub 150 lb has picked up. Feat of the year fosho

Was the baby inch you lifted the one that was 127 (the shot loaded )one at Jedds? Keep in mind that this does not have the same action as the actual solid bells have. The turning of the globes is not the same due to the settled shot. I can practically  hammer curl thst bell from the floor to my shoulder but not with a 130 baby inch.

It was but I can also do the a 125 without much trouble. My true max at the moment feels around mid 130s but I've never seen one at that weight. I would like to get over bodyweight at least which feels possible.

Did you try but simply couldn't do it or did interest/motivation fade away? 

I think interest and motivation faded away.  Getting one to do it is prohibitive too so that makes it less of a feat to me regardless whether it is or not.   In other words, more would be able to do it if they had access to one.   I think  psychologically it's a bit more daunting due to it's size and weight too.  For me that is. :)

I see, thanks. 

I feel the same way, and as such it doesn't really interest me.

October 13, 1990 Bill Kazmaier flew to Australia and cleaned and pressed Bruce White’s Inch Replica.

I speculate that White’s replica  must have been the first ever.

Kaz’s clean was “Continentaled”.

At the one of the first Arnold Strongman contests, Phil Pfister  high pulled a replica.

Did Bruce lift his when over 50 yo Mike?  He was 48 or 49 when he claims to have lifted it for the first time in 1983 (after 5 years of training for it).  However, he mentioned in his interview with David Horne that he would concentrate on one lift until he got it and then move on.  Just wondering if he ever successfully lifted it after he turned 50.

I don't know the answer to that, but was wondering the same thing. Someone knows the answer to that I am sure.

Some lists I've found from David Horne's forum and gripboard. Please note, some people appear on several lists. I have edited the lists so that each name only appear once (hopefully without any errors). That makes it easier to count.

Some people I have seen videos of and heard about. Or it's reasonable to assume that they have lifted an Inch DB.

Alexey Tyukalov
Mike Burke
Rich Williams
Odd Haugen
Mark Henry
Eddie Hall
Mark Felix
Paul Savage
Sl-Ghi Choi
Håkan Carlsson
Oscar Bertrandsson (was only 15 years old when he did it and is to my knowledge the youngest person to acomplish this feat)
Martin Arildsson
Kalle Lane
Cim Johansson
Yves Gravelle
Luke Raymond
Jon Call
Carl Myerscaugh
Carl-August Mertz

That is 76 names. I can easly count to 100 if I wanted to search the web a bit more and there's at least twice that amount who has done it. I remember seeing many videos of people I don't know the name of. And that's only by people who post videos. I would say that 200 people would be the absolute minimum.

I had (might still have) the lift for time (no tilt) record. Edit: yep - 24 seconds. Also the Inch farmers walk (one in each hand) was an event at Mighty Mitts. I've no great distance to claim but did 2 and so, I think did Jedd and others. 

I also lifted the ORIGINAL and ACTUAL Inch. As did (if only a little) Eddie Ellwood and Bill Richardson. David Horne's Gripiopedia is worth a look.
