I bend underhand and can rear lever an 8 lb. sledge and overhead lever it. I havent messed with the side to side or the front lever enough to know what I can do on those but I probably need to start doing more of those as well. Curious to see what some of the top benders can do.

i have a wierd thing......i bend double overhand, and i seemed to have taken to levering naturally.... my best lever is with a 12lb x 2, but something odd happened...that hammer is my grandfathers, and its got something on the handle to make it smooth...the 10lb i have is very rough, and it feels harder on my hands for this reason.....any thoughts?

My best bend is a 6" grade 5 in one sitting, and a 240k challenge bar with a break between the kink and the finish. My best strict levers are and 8lb side to side, a 16lb held 25" from the head to the rear, a 16lb sledge held 22" from the head to overhead, and an 8lb 26" from the head to the front. Cheating I've done a 16lber at 25" side to side.
