Well, the gripper wasn't a challenge. did 2 doubles and a 30mm blockset. Unfortunately, every close went out of focus. Really pissed off. I was just going to use my phone but I was persuaded to use my dad's "top of the line" camera. Never again -___-

Wus.  ;)

 

Tim you are ridiculous in your grip strength.  Know...that we know...that its not a reflection of that strength.

Appreciate it, Nate! I've just been wanting to knock this off the list for a while so I'm a tad frustrated. At least now, I'll have 0 doubts about whether or not I can close it

Thats a shame. Just do it again immediately, don't wait.  Practice filming all gripper closes you do. It's really a shame when someone fails because of bad footage.

I even did practice runs with a trainer and everything came out okay. Not sure why it decided to screw up the official attempts. but yea i'll be perfecting all of that and using my phone from now on since it's never failed me. I'll just be sure to have do not disturb mode on lol

Yes, if it ain't broken don't fix it. Looking forward to see you mash that gripper 💪

Tim is going for Round 2. He seemingly destroyed the gripper round 1 but got tripped up on the video. 

Crush it!

The judges again could not see well enough due to the gripper being way too far from the camera and angled too as well.  Literally just move the camera on top of the close and not so far away.

2 reds and one white on the second attempt (there was no third in the video).  

You got this gripper. 

For an example of how close to the camera, David Shamey comes to mind of recent certs and making sure the angle is right to show the set and close:
