    i guess gear was wrong word, should have said equipment. Im looking for hand grippers i want to get the ones with 200, 250 and so on just seeing if any one knows a good reliable retailer.

    I just ordered mine direct from IronMind, there shipping is a bit high but their products are top notch and i'm not sure of a Canadian retailer that carries them or a good alternative

    Have you trained your grip much before? i've got basically everything from the COC 1 to the 4 and of all the people i've let try maybe 1 in 10 can close the #1 out of the package

    I'm pretty weak and couldn't close the #1 straight away. I started off with the T and the #1. I did reps and overcrushes on the T and negatives and partials on the #1 till I could close it. I would get the #1.5 or #2 as well while you are at it. It was pretty easy to close the #1 once I started training. If feel that you are stronger you can maybe skip the T.

    I think they workout out to be $30 or so CDN with shipping, duty and tax all in from Ironmind ($20 US for the gripper), maybe a bit more depends on what all you order. Usually the 1 and the 2 is a good starting place for "most".
