My 60mm was chromed bar, no good as you cant sand it so will scrap that. This 50mm is mild steel so itll hold chalk fine. 50mm is 2" 60 is 2 3/8. 

Thank man it looks decent enough i think. Only cost be £6 for the pipe as well. Ill try it out on thursday maybe..need a couple pf days rest after todays session.

What I meant was I dont know if the 45kg on a wrist wrench was meant on a 50mm or 60mm handle to be equivalent to an Inch.

Since the 50mm is a lot easier than the 60mm im going to guess that you need to pull 45kg on a 60mm wrist wrench to be able to lift the Inch.

Ah right sorry man, i see what you mean now 👍Ive read the 60mm, its got to be really as its the same thickness as the inch.

If i had to guess on a 50mm id say more like 55kg maybe for being able to lift the inch.

Thanks. Its a different feel. Ww is more wrist based and holle it up more thumb and fingers. I really enjoyed the wrist wrench today. 

You should make one. So easy, all you need is a 200mm long steel pipe, drill 2 holes then attach a strong strap in ethier hole then tie a knot, i used a dog lead for the strap 😂 works great though as they Re so strong and cheap. Good to go, Cost me like £6 total.

Many thanks man 👍 even though it was a P.R. my hands are so beat up i would of done better. Fresh i would of got at least 30kg maybe even 32kg. 

I got 30kg about 4-5  inches from the ground. Ill try again next week when fresh.

As for the holds i was shocked i did longer than last time as im so fatigued and sore. I hate wide pinch 🤣 much prefer 60mm.

Sometimes we feel really sore, but muscles can support us hahah Pinching is going great for you... in the future 40kg pinch will be an everyday thing :rock

Thank you my friend. Yes its a good amount of weight but also that is the easiest setting to lift on that handle, however The large diameter plates and the spinlock collars being drum tight gives it a lot of rotation though so its not easy either.
