Standard Grippers are almost here!


Recommended Posts

Standard Grippers are almost here! This new line features simple, handmade grippers with oil-tempered springs and carefully honed specifications to meet your training needs. The line includes 9 levels, which are named after increasingly hard metals. Each gripper is stamped with the SG logo on one handle and the chemical symbol of the metal on the other handle. The 9 levels are:

Sn - Tin - 50lbs average rating
Zn - Zinc - 60lbs
Ag - Silver - 80lbs
Au - Gold - 95lbs
Pt - Platinum - 115lbs
Fe - Iron - 135lbs
Co - Cobalt - 165lbs
Ti - Titanium - 175lbs
W - Tungsten - 190lbs

Designed for simplicity and durability, Standard Grippers are coming soon.

Really cool idea @Cannon, do you have any info about the handle spread of these grippers, are they similar to COC and GHP?

For sure! Any info you want. 

In general they are just under 3”.  Average probably 2.85” to 3”.

The mandrel that the springs are made on can only fine tune the preload angle to certain increments. This effectively sets the eventual spread which is one of the major elements that determines the final rating as well. Of the choices we had between 2.5” and 3” we had to lean on the one that hit the numbers we wanted, and that was 2.85 to 3” spreads.

That's great, seems like a really good approach 👍
