    they changed the rules for certing again. Now you have to crunk a brand new opened by your cert witness to make it offical.

    perhaps they're worried about people stressing/wearing down the gripper so it's not so great.

    do they require you to buy it? that'd be shitty.

    after about 100 closes the gripper wont get any weaker unless its a catostrophic failure.

    They said its because people are out there on forums looking for weaker #3s.

    This is a stupid excuse though since there is already varition in grippers to begin with and they are tested by the witness before hand.

    those people looking for weaker 3s so they can get a cert which essentially means nothing must live awesome lives

    the variation is so small though. a "weak" 3 hasnt been made in years. If anything its the reverse. When IM went to the chromed spring they got much harder.

    Sounds like a ploy to sell more grippers.

    a blob the head of a York dumbbell.

    Lifting a 50lbs blob with one hand is considerd an elite feat in grip strenght. Something like benching +800 would be to a powerlifter
