Failed On A Red Nail Again


Recommended Posts

Every week I've been trying a Red but I can't even get it started, the hand position definitely doesn't feel right, 6" feels more comfortable. Last week when I tried one I blacked out from the exertion on the initial attempt, which my brother thought was hilarious when he watched the video :whacked So after this failed attempt I went for the FBBC 7" 1/4 square and got it easier than last time I tried it, except for the crush down, with the painful hands I got trying the red.

What sort of degree pre kink do you think I should try on a Red to see if that's easier because on all my bends the kink is the hardest?

Maybe you can start taping a bit of 3mm bar to the square stock, then 4mm, etc. This is how Elizabeth moved from the blue to the Grade 5, because she wanted to keep to a 6" length.

Someone mentioned that to me, might have been Gazza.

Well done!
