Which captains of crush to get??

My argos grippers arent doing the job, (shockingly enough) and on DL's my grip goes well before any other part of me.

What level c.o.c should i go for? I dont want to get something too low cos £20 for a gripper is a lot of dough if i need to replace them quickly.

My DL is between 160 - 180 if that helps!

    Maybe just go for the trainer strength initially. It's 40lbs less pressure than the #1. but still tough and excellent for reps.

    A good friend of mine deadlifts about 200kgs strapless, and he is just short of closing the #1, so the trainer might be worth looking at.

    Trainer would be too easy mate, i'd say invest in a number 1 aswell.

    A trainer and #1 would be good, I have a #2 but I'd laid off them a while and can't do much with it now so it's back to the #1 with just the odd rep with the 2 . You need to be getting a good double figures with the 1 before you can make much ground on the 2 IMO

    Ok thanks guys. I think i'll go for a #1 and try and implement some pinch grip work in with it too.

    Thanks again.

    I have the full set. I have to say only a god can close the 3s and 4s. They are just so damn hard.
    I slammed the trainier my first day. I have another set of grippers which top at what they say is 400lbs. and i can knock the 400lb just a bit.
    CoC i can get the 2's but not under regulation rules.

    Yeah the #2 is evil. It`s only now after about 3 months that I can close it more often with not with a CCS (credit card set).

    Feels good when it does shut though.

    I can rep out the # 1 with both hands a good few times, but I'll be damned if I can close that # 2! I'm like millimetres of closing the damned thing as well..

    Go for the trainer and 1, I bought T,1 and 2 and to be honest you aint closeing the 2 out of the box. get confident closeing the 1 for reps then get the 2.

    Its hard to say without having actually tried one, I got a trainer and a #1, I closed the trainer the same day and have closed the #1 also so its impossible to say really, others will close the 1 first time and others will struggle with the trainer. To be safe I'd go Trainer and 1.
