Nice close man. Isnt no set when you pick it up off the table? with no assistance of any kind from the other hand?...it seemed like you lightly set it.....

still a great close.

i think your confusing it with a total no set - the only thing i was using my other hand for was to put the gripper in my hand, it was completely open in my hand, and i shut it with 1 hand, thats a no set...ill do a tns in the future if you like, its just hard to position the gripper in your hand when you can only use that hand to place it there, i wouldnt say doing so would make it any harder as far as what your level of grip has to be

my mistake, i was under the impression that TNS and NS was same thing. For me the hardest part is picking up the gripper and doing TNS....most of my closes are NS.

im 100% sure ill smash the handles of a #4 together just the same someday, i came as close as possible (i wasnt 100% sure it was shut so im saying it wasnt) to shuting my hard #3 before this close, soon as that things easy im ordering a #4

Do you have any grippers that are close to the #4. Get ready to feel the sheer horror and power of the dreaded #4, keep at it though ! - Nice close.

ill maybe get some other tougher grippers also, but from what i can gather my hard #3 is at least 3.3 as its harder than my rb240, which is a good bit harder than my rb210, which is a good bit harder than my hg300, which is a good bit harder than my #2..haha you get the point

also an average #3 is roughly 77% of an average #4, its just it takes most people a long time to reach the level of #3, adding another 23% to get to the #4 level at that point is a huge ask, an most cant do it, so the #4 feels like a brick - its like trying to squat more than your max, you can only go down

For me ive got to the level i can no set a #3 in about 7 months (5 of which with the grippers), an ive only just turned 20 years old - in my mind theres no chance i wont rep the #4 in the future, never mind close it

Most of the #3 closers have felt this at some point. I certainly thought I would close a #4 one day. A few years down the road reality tends to knock on your door. If you main aim is allround grip strength then you may never close a #4. Look at the best allround grip guys like David Horne, Nick McKinless, Jedd Johnson, Martin Arildsson and Chad Woodall. None of them have closed a #4 and yet they easily dominate #4 closers in allround grip strength competitions.
