    I've been trying to talk to some people who know people who know people. Still in pre pre pre organization stage but people from Iron Mind and Robert Baraban have expressed interest in seeing what can be done.

    There are no deals or offers out but they have expressed interest. So if you want to be tenitively IN post in here.

    2 Replies so far.

    From the person interested in doing an Iron Minds GB

    and BeefBuilders

    Iron Mind:

    Trainer: 100lbs
    #1 140 lbs
    #2 195 lbs
    #3 280 lbs

    $79.80 RETAIL BEFORE SHIPPING

    Beef Builder:

    Super Advanced 115 lbs
    Master 155 lbs
    Super Master 200 lbs
    Grand Master 230 lbs

    $99.96 RETAIL BEFORE SHIPPING


    I’ve decided that these would be the 2 best “packages” that could be put together from the two companies that have showed interest. If I hear back from Robert Baraban we can add those too. But the should be similar to the Iron mind price.

    It is my personal opinion that the Beef Builder band while most likely more expensive would be the best training deal. For the reasons that some of use all ready have Iron Mind grippers and the Beef Builders fall into nice inbetweeners for the IM progression. I also believe that the discount would be a better value in the long run as the Iron Minds would be cheaper retail anyways and to purchase the BB later would cost more in the long run. Or course that is completely subject to change depending on what we hear from either one.

    I can inquire about individual sales. (Example: ordering 20 Trainers, 15 #1s, 10 #2s) but because that would mean less total grippers sold I doubt the potential discount will be as steep. This would also leave anyone who didn’t buy the whole set to pay full retail and shipping in the future.


    Alright we have 2 offers right now.

    The offer from Iron Mind (Captain Of Crush)

    Weightlifters Warehouse: Beef Builders

    The Iron Mind Price DOES NOT includes shipping, and as of now they want to ship in bulk to one location, doing separate shipping will revert back to their regular shipping prices. The beef builders include shipping in their price. My vote still goes to the beef builders. Once shipping is factored in the CoCs will only be about 10$ cheaper.


    Alright I got word straight from Heavy Grip, Unless denial was talking to someone else I have no idea how he said he was able to pull of a 45$ group of 5.


    People who are IN for now.

    I also emailed Weightlifter's Warehouse looking in to their beef builder line of grippers.

    hopefully we will get some responses soon. Though right now I would expect to pay a little more then the 45$. All 3 of these brands or of higher quality than the HGs imo.

    Robert Baraban are the nicest imo, huge selection, colors, handle types
    http://www.handgripper.net/neu/www/index.php

    Iron Mind CoC are the Standard
    http://www6.mailordercentral.com/ironmind/products.asp?dept=8

    Beef Builders are hand made and the brand that grip forums use to certify on.
    http://www.wwfitness.com/

    Heavy Grips are very nice for the price but are just a knotch down in overall build quality.

    To be in the group buy you will most likely have to buy a whole set, whatever that is determined to be.

    oh ok, so there are no deals. But what about the payment. Do we all pay you? Do we all pay them individually? This is something that they won't decide correct? If so how would the payment work?

    If I knew that yet i would have posted it. Read the other GB thread. Why wouldn't they deside it, they are all reputable people. If people want to send me the money with Fazles or the mods here looking over it thats fine with me.

    If this works out I can have them all shipped here and then each person pay the shipping from my area code.
