Hey man. 

Appreciate the comments. Im the geordie gripster on reddit. 

The flask is totally different to the im bb. Width for one as the flask is 57mm and bb 75mm but the texture is also different. The flask being aluminium makes it pretty slick but once it seasons in its not to bad. I like the curved nature of the flask. The flask is my favourite grip tool by far. Well worth the money. 

My im Bb block is an old one from about 2003-4 with slick paint on as ironmind used to do, im not a fan of it tbh. 

As for the wrist wrenches i find the 50mm is great for pure wrist work. The 60mm i feel way more in the hand and thumb and less wrist but ive not used the 60mm much at all. 

Thanks i will. Im 100% focused on lifting my york legacy blob 50 at the minute. Its very difficult and its only been 2 weeks but im making progress and my hands are adapting to the ultra wide grip.

Thanks alot for shedding light on this brother! I've been wondering about the flask for a while now seems to be a big hit with alot of gripsters. I'm laughing now as I may have to justify another grip purchase to the wife lol. 

Great to know about the wrist wrench. I hear what you're saying about the 60mm smoking the thumb and fingers. I find it seems to work those harder than the wrist. I love the 60mm wrench for wrist curls though! Seems to provide good carryover to the regular wrist wrench deadlift. The 50mm looks like fun for an overload. 

Dude a blob 50 would be awesome. You don't look like a huge guy I would think you may be one of the lighter guys to pick it up if you're successful! I can imagine it must be quite a shock to the hands initially like you said vs say the flask which is 2.25". Seems like thumb strength can be paramount to lifting a blob 50, hope to join you someday!

I hear you on buying more stuff haha. I use my savings i put away to buy grip stuff, Keeps the wife happy lol. The flask is well worth the money. I want to get bodyweight and more on the 2 hand flask once ive lifted the blob. Im fairly close.

I agree Wrist curls on the ww are great move. 

Yes im 170-172lbs atm but im actually normally 165lbs. Last year with covid and lockdown here i ended up gaining useless weight. Ill be back to 165lbs soon. 

I lived a 40lb.blob a month or so a go the first time trying when i had access to one. It was easy. A 50 is another ball game though. Its not so much the extra weight but the size, its much wider and hard to get my hand around it. Also pretty slick. Ill lift it if it kills me though lol.

Appreciate the kind words.

Nice lifts man! Haha, you will fell those deadlift reps for a week. Is the grip club more structured or just you and a friend training together? Sounds great either way!

Thanks. Oh yeah my upper back is fried today. Sore to the touch lol. Forearms smoked as well.

Its great. Its a local gym, the best in north east england and run by world class powerlifter and gripster Big Sam parker. Sam is insanely strong and a really nice guy to boot. He recently equalled brian shaws double inch incline press for 5 reps unassisted yet weights over 100lbs less than shaw. He is 5ft 9in and about 300lbs

We do whatever sam has in store for us so it changes every week. We had 4 blobs there yesteday. It was great fun and seeing sam do world class lifts right before your eyes is amazing.
