ANYONE USED/USING THESE???
I just ordered a level 3 but after reading some shit on their site think a 2 -2.5 might be better.

Unless you have done alot of grip work before or narturally have a very strong crushing grip you would be best to start with a 1.5 or a 2 at most. If these are too easy you can always do static timed holds and strap holds etc or higher reps. You can always use the number 3 for cheat closes but this will be tough on your hands.

i think mine is a 1 , which is still pretty tough!

aparently you need to be the t-1000 to close the 3

^^ kin hell mate your not wrong there i cant close it with both hands, never mind it will be fun at parties offering 50£ to anyone who can close it , i should have got a 2 but what the hell nothing ventured and all that , it just goes to show that the "heavy grip 250" is , in reality a "not do heavy grip 150", these CoC grippers are hard as fook :), gonna get myself a number 2 and press on with that.

How much are captains of crush grippers? I'm going to have to start using them, either that or start plate pinching and deadhanging until failure.
My double overhand grip is beginning to fail on stifflegs.
Split grip is still rock solid though.

Coc grippers are about £18 - £20 each but they are the best affordable gripper unless you want high qulaity RB grippers. I have 3 custom brass Rb grippers they are a thing of beauty. If anyone is interested in grip trainining either go on to www.gripboard.com or read any book by John Brookfield.
