I made it hard to see with bad set angle, sorry judges.  Thanks for doing the work to verify it was good enough.

You were also 51 when you got it.  Now we may have to count the days to see who was the oldest (I was 51 and 126 days lol).  I think at 185 pounds I might also be the lightest though ...

Congratulations! I found you really easy on the second attempt, you must be very close to RGC 170 MMS!

Thanks, although I am pretty sure the second attempt, though widely set, just missed closing - partly because I was surprised by the blood spurting out from my thumb onto the gripper lol, but no excuses, a miss is a miss.  I know I can't do 170 MMS yet.  That is now my goal, since I have a COC 3.5 rated 170 and I've finally broken through the 160 barrier that had me stalled for months.

 MM2 is a strong achievement at any age but to be 51 and you doing it at 185lbs is very special! I was a whopping 87 days older, LOL. Almost 17 years of Gripboard MM certs and you and I only dudes over 50 is quite impressive in my book. Big congrats again, enjoy it  and maybe someday we can cert the MM3.

Congrats Vinnie! White tiger never fails! Also congrats on the bloodiest cert attempt I’ve ever witnessed - setting a new bench mark that if you’re not bleeding during a gripper close, are you really even trying?

Sponsored by the Torrella Outdoor Gym as the premier MM cert venue in NYC - unpredictable weather situations, blaring cop sirens, Amtrak trains passing overhead - make all your MM dreams come true
