I've been wondering the Rating of a Heavygrip 500 but can't figure it out for the life of me xD

They tend to be around a 3.5 or slightly higher, so in the neighborhood of 180 RGC. The spring is large, but the handles are longer so that decreases the difficulty.

We had Bone Crusher 400 and 500 come through our Used Gripper section recently and both rated 200.  (It's the same gripper as the Heavy Grips counterpart). The 400 had a smaller spring, but also a much tighter coil and that allowed them to rate the same.

Agree, longer decreases difficulty.  But they are also much thicker and that increases the difficulty in the hand a ton even if it doesn't show in the rating.

Come to think of it, I do remember seeing those on your website. i was a little surprised at first, then noticed the little things that make the grippers as difficult as one another. Even now, the way springs and grippers can work in different / similar ways leaves me intrigued

Sure, there's also the last bit missing the knurling which is tough on the pinky. I also think it depends on hand size too because I bet this would feel great for Brian Shaw compared to a normal gripper.
