Hey everyone. My name is Cesare Ricchezza and I’m new to the site. I’m certified on the Captain’s of Crush #3 gripper and a couple of other high quality grippers. I’m currently training for the Ironmind Red Nail Certification. I just recently bent it according to the official rules so I’m hoping to certify within the next couple months. I have been competing in grip competitions during the last year and I have decided to hold my own. Please find the information below and let me know if your interested and have any questions.
