Your hand is about the same size as mine and the rule is not the same for everyone, like I said, but for the most part, thick bar is better suited to hand size and that’s a fact.

Very impressive and I can’t wait to see that! If you are in New York, you can come to my house and clean  mine! I can deadlift and row it, but not clean it. My hand is just about 20cm /8 inch, the ones with 7.5 inch hands lifting the inch are very impressive. I could not imagine how hard it would be for someone with  less than 8 inch hands lifting the inch. Your hand is 8 inches, which is still a decent size.

Not sure why hand size matters on the inch.

if Odd at 60+ can lift it 62 times and Mike at 52 can almost kinda lift it, and the dynamic duo of adam and tanner can hot potato it and yves can do it at a the weight of a small child.

 

There is absolutely no reason anyone cant lift this 3rd tier bottom barrel garbage feat. So stop whining, spend the 500 plus 400 on shipping and lift it. No tilt though. Doing it no tilt adds maybe 2.5 stars to the legitimacy of it. Got it guys?

It's a philosophy that has kept me humble over the last 52 years.  If I can do something, there are probably  thousands of people out there that could do it given the chance and time to train for it.

I break feats down into 4 categories:

Attainable by most healthy males with some specific effort: Pinching 2-25s, closing a #2, 300# on an axle, 40 lb blob, 200 on a 2" vbar, etc.

What I call gateway lifts = Something extremely hard to attain for most people and once you have, you can be considered a serious gripsport playa.  Feats like a #3 close, pinching two 45s, blob 50, plain reg #3 shoe, Red Nail bend, > 200# on a new RT, 3 25s pinch, lifting the Inch for a single.

World Class = something only the top 25 people or so in the world can do. Feats like Blobzilla, Pinching a 25KG and 45 lb plate, Lifting the 200# Inch or lifting the Inch for multiple reps, pinching York deep dish 45s, etc.

Elite = something only the top few people in the world can do.  Blob Father, cleaing Blobzilla or the Inch, Kerckhaert DF front clipped 10x25 Extra #3, two 25kg plate pinch, pinching deep dish York 45s in each hand, Millenium Dumbbell lift, closing a #4, etc. 

 

Those are just some examples.  But that's how I look at grip feats.  The lists are always changing.  A lot of the stuff on the Gateway lift list was considered world class 10 - 15 years ago.  If we are ever successful at getting a bunch of monsters like Shaw to compete, then a lot of the world class and elite feats will drop down the list quickly. 

 

But my original definition still stands.  If a part time strength enthusiast like me can do something at almost 52 years old, it is definitely not world class.  It can't be.  There are millions of people stronger than me on the planet and I guarantee there are thousands and thousands with a stronger grip.  So by definition, if I can do it, it ain't world class.  That doesn't mean it isn't a great feat and super hard to attain.  But I promise you, after the blender I've put this body through there isn't a world class feat in it at my age.  Other than horseshoes, there probably never was.  And I got humbled by Bergmann pretty quick on the shoes when a real world class strength athlete took up the sport for a few months.

Your class system would be best presented as a pyramid graph.  I would rename the gateway lifts a Rite of Passage lift.

Tone these posts down or it will get locked.

A better suggestion is to tone down the over-moderation. 

Keep this up and there won’t be 4 posts a day on here.

There is no over moderation.  The rules are pretty clear.  And most, nearly all, people follow them.  There is no place or need for excessive vulgarities.  Do it somewhere else.
