    Captain of crush is a well known and respected brand.

    I could barely close the number 1 if I remember correctly and the number 2 I couldn't close.

    Captains of crush are used as the standard for grippers by a lot of people. They are great quality and the feel is 10x better than store bought. Plus the handles are a smaller diameter that most store bought grippers so you get a better ROM. I own a couple and it's totally worth it. Crushing strength is going up by the week.

    CoCs are the best, bro. They are sturdy as hell and will last forever. I would start with a Sport and a #1 or Trainer if I were you. Took me awhile to close the #1s. I can now close the #1.5s but cannot close the #2s. They are definitely quality, go for it.

    Edit: For a reference, I believe the amount of force required to close each is something like:

    Sport: 80 lbs
    Trainer: 100 lbs
    #1: 140 lbs
    #1.5: ~160 lbs
    #2: 190 lbs

    I may be wrong, but it's close to that.

    Those look pretty good. They listed the "guide" @ 60 lbs. force, looks like a good place to start. Has anyone used the funny looking one with the 2 little springs made by Ivanko?

    It is currently a fad, at this writing, for boys to think they need a "six pack", although most of them don't have an ice chest to put it in.
