calling Captains of Crush...

what do you guys reckon to this for a competition:

how long can you hold a CoC shut for? the winner of each catagory is MT's very own Captain Corpral of Crush.

there would be three catagories obviously #1, #2 + #3

oh yea, mobster+J5.... your banned from entering [:p] [j/k].

    nah let j5, mobster and tuc do theirs as well, will get interesting times for us lesser mortals to aim for!

    Perhaps the baraban grippers should be included as well since lots of MT bros only have them?

    I'll post my times later on as a base to start from.

    i was only joking about the exclusion of the gripdaddys.
    i think the barbaran grippers is a good idea, or just have xxxip classes, noting the equivelent CoC next to it.

    mine is terrible: [although i did do bending earlier today], i only got 16sec on the CoC#1 :(

    just tried, so these are my starting times:

    #1: 39 secs (though i've just filed a chunk off my #1 - if that makes a difference)

    #2: 19 secs

    very painful!

    I think, in the 2002 Iron grip I got a CoC 2 Inverted (upside down) for over 40 seconds. Winning times were over one minute. I don't have the times to hand but it gives you an idea of a benchmark.

    About five years now I guess and I could do the coc 1 straight away and almost had the 2. The 3 took me a little over a year.

    no, i'd like to, but i'd make things damn lot harder for my left hand, which is still to close #2. Might still take months before i get it closed with my left.

    I have got a bit of pain in my left hand across a knucle when i try the no2, It is preventing me using max effort,
    just done 4 reps with the no2 on the right was about 0.5mm off 5 reps, no set of couse, I will get a baraban 210 ip and maybe a 240 too (big daddy pack) at the end of the month, I also nearly have bent a 6" nail it is getting closer to my goals :)
