    I use the Ivanko supergripper and I think it's a hell of a lot better than trying to jump up 50lbs at a time with little grippers.

    I guess you're the faggot that goes to the gym in a wife beater and some gold chains hangin round your neck to look pretty for the girls huh?


    Obviously looking good squeezing something is top priority. :rolleyes:


    Sorry, I digress....What I meant to say is:

    I don't think looking good bears relevence on gaining strength/size. Thank you for your input, have a nice day.

    Since it's only $16 instead of $24 if you buy 3, maybe we should be asking for a group buy on the Ivanko instead. If it's 33% off a purchase of 3, i'm sure we can get a bigger discount for an order of $30.

    I have a joerx model that goes up to 70lb and I found it mimics grasping a bar more so than the CoC style gripper.

    are there any pics of it head on? it looks really thin, and like it would be hard to hold onto, or at least would be more awkward than COCs :dunno:

    so you have to buy one, send them a picture of you closing it... and then they'll send you another one free of charge?

    The ISG is a really good peice of equipment. It doens't have the same range of motion as a hand gripper though so it is hard to compare. But you will get strong from it for sure. It also lets you do negetives easier because you can close it with 2 hands.

    But if you let it spring open to fast it can bend out of place really easy. But you just put it back and keep going. From what i have heard the handles can be a little uncomfortable.

    Yeah, Close it with one spring at 10 and one at 12 and they'll send you another.

    And yes, it is kinda thin, but with some grip tape it's perfect.

    I'd take a pic but my girl just but my girl just broke my digicam.

    The gripping surface is about 1/2-3/4" diameter, it flares out at the part you grip.

    Hmm...one of these with the "devil's advocate" option would be about the same price as the Beef builder's group buy but offer more flexibility...
     
  21. Plus I'm sure we can knock the price down with a gb to around $50-$60
