Excellent work! I must say that you were closer to the 6.5” x 5/16 10.9 than I thought you would be! Very strong!

Thanks Wiggy. I started this bolt with just imps + one pair of leather because I had hybris and it probably workhardened at that spot making the final part of the kink harder then it had to be. My guess is that I can probably take this bolt down to the sweep in one go but the sweep need more training. The crush will obviously be a problem too, we will see when I get there.

Kink and sweep was smooth and the crush had me fight for it.

Had some good progress today. Braced bent a 14.5” 12mm rebar and strict DU’d a 207kg grade 8 with wog wraps touching. The grade 8 was prekinked though and sitting at about 5 degrees so it wasn’t a full bend. But still a strict DU PR. I’ve struggled getting more than 5-10 degrees on these with wraps touching strict DU.

Congrats! Two blues is about equal to a red nail. You should be ready to bend some reds 💪

IMO two blues should be harder than a red nail.

So in my journey to destroy bending for everyone I got the Horrido 12.9 bolt to almost 90 degrees in doubles unbraced yesterday.

DO:

Horrido 8.8 bolt

Horrido 12.9 prekinked 10 degrees to 90 degrees in 4 minutes.
