1. chalk only.
2. 20mm block set or wider from 12/31/14 forward.
3. certs requiring a different set than 20mm block require that set.
4. GHP, David Horne, and credit card set blocks do not need to be measured. diy or non branded blocks have to be within .5mm of stated width.

I will wait to post what I was thinking until judging is over.

He should have called it BNS (Bench No Set). It was clearly not a legit TNS :rolleyes

Oh and I got a text about my post - I did not mean to be cryptic, I just had something to say that I did not want to influence the voting.

I don't understand how stated criteria relates to video?

I went to the section of the board with the feats list. For hand grippers these are the rules listed. I go with what's listed and accept what is there.

If anyone wants to bypass these rules and judge the gripper attempt, ask yourself did the person "close" it or not?

A) it might be useful to write up a set of rules for a TNS close, but 

2) I think we’re all pretty sure of what that means, and

π) if someone fails a close it would be useful to point out why to see what points we disagree on.

Rules couldn't be clearer as far as I see it.

I don’t wish to speak for @Goran Paulinič but I think his objection is that most of the rules quoted in the OP refer to proving the set, which is a nonissue here. I also recall some debate in prior threads about what qualifies as a TNS. Clarifying that might be useful for schmucks like me who would only do well if grippers had a chest crush division. Still, I think we’re all fairly clear on what a TNS is.
