    CoC #2.5 gripper close

    Yesterday I finally managed a single close of my CoC #2.5 gripper with my right hand and came within 1/4" of closing my 2006 #3
    My arm touched my leg when I closed it but my hand didn't so I'm not sure if it would've officially passed but I was so happy to feel the handles click.
    I'll have to get a video of this next grip day.

    How many times did you have to close the #2 before you were able to close the 2.5? 10? 15? 20?

    You don't have to pay for it, you call Ironmind and they set up a judge in your area, send a new gripper to certify on, you open it at the meeting and close it, if successful you keep the gripper as a gift. You provide a little bio on yourself, some pictures of the close and yourself and your done!

    I don't know about others but it doesn't really work that way for me. I can still only do a few reps on the #2 and will probably only be doing half a dozen or so on the #2 even when I master the #3.

    1972girl - just a warning if you are getting the grippers... start with maybe the Sport or Trainer FIRST - these things are tough and you might be surprised at how hard they really are. If you don't believe me, just ask Titania!

    Thumbs down I Hate Sharp Knurling Too

    Titania,

    Please don't suffer from sharp gripper knurling... get one of those soft spongy sandblocks and work the sharpness off the handles. Work off just enough to where it doesn't hurt; I do this to my grippers and I've tried lots of different methods - it seems this one works the best for me!

    Me and you John are obviously the opposite then. I thrive off knurling. I don't even reckon i could close a #3 with poor knurling. It is for this reason that the HGs have always been hard for me to close i closed a #3 about 6-8 months before i closed an HG300!

    You should custom order some grippers from Tetting then. I did, and the frickin' things were SO damn sharp... I couldn't hold them in my hands!

    I like anything Tetting makes. I have a second hand MM1 replica on the way here from the states! Can't wait.

    The knurling on the ordinary beef builders is perfect. I haven't really got the pocket to start ordering custom made stuff but if i did i would order a BB PRO with 1/4'' mount and very very sharp knurling but only on the dogleg side i'd like the finger side to have normal beef builder style knurl.

    I must say I agree with you Sam. Although the CoC's are all I have used, I do like the knurling even if it does cut a bit. It, along with some chalk, really helps me keep the handles in the right spot.
