    CoC aren't adjustable. Although they are bloody good. I'm thinking the Ivanko gripper is adjustable and what you'd be after. I'd like to get one myself.

    Re: Grip strength

    mine just arrived today... and apart from the initial impossible and annoying way of varying the resistance (maybe because the springs are still new and haven`t been loosened up) and the slightly uncomfortable grip (which i feel i could remedy by just wrapping something around it or wearing gloves) it seems to get the job done and i`m anxious to begin completing workouts with it.

    Could you suggest a workout for it?... i just got it and performed the usual workout.... 4sets 8-10reps.. i plan on doing this like 2-3times/week.
    What would you suggest for a workout?

    Low reps. High reps are a pain in the arse for the tendons and ligaments. Only do the higher reps on very light settings.

    Re: Grip strength

    the term low reps is subjective, could you specific a bit please?... do you mean 3reps? 5reps?

    I do something 5-3-1ish with my grippers. It's working fine thus far.
