The Vulcan Gripper

Here is a Vlog (Video Blog) about the Vulcan Gripper.

Are you in the United States and want a Vulcan? If so, leave a comment or email me about your interest.




Update #1 – Vulcan Pricing

I have received a note from David Horne – he could not get back to me yesterday because it was his little girl Lucy’s 5th birthday – HAPPY BIRTHDAY LUCY!!! But I should have info from him next week on the Vulcan Gripper Shipping situation!

Update #2 – Reader Question

I received a question in the comments from Ken, who writes…

Jedd, Thanks very much for the vlog. I now understand how it compares with the Ivanko Super Gripper. What kind of range of difficulty is available on the Vulcan? What is the easiest level (cf. the Guide in the Captains of Crush series), if I want to do very high reps? Ken

The Vulcan will accomodate you, Ken, no doubt about it. At its lowest setting with the Gold Spring, it feels like less than a #1 to me and I can click off reps so fast it sounds like an old-fashioned typewriter, clickety click click click – Just never have to slide that big long piece back to the left when you reach the end. Also, at the toughest setting the feels like you are trying to squeeze a slippery moss covered rock. It covers just about the entire full range of available Grippers on the market. Hope this helps. More updates to come as they materialize! Jedd

    I’d be interested in the grippers for use with our college wrestlers. Let me know how we can get our hands on them and what we need to do.

    Just got my Vulcan last Friday and it rocks. I love that I can train different levels of difficulty at any time. Prior to this the hardest gripper I owned was a CoC #1 and I was getting ready to get a #2 when I decided to get the Vulcan instead. Now I can train at a level around the 2, higher or lower whenever I want.

    Jedd, I would definitely be interested depending on the pricing. Currently mashing a CoC #1 and want to challenge myself a bit more and figured that the adjustable vulcan would fit the ticket.

    Looks like you’ve been working on the Vulcan situation for a while. I’m definitely interested in purchasing one. Horne’s site indicates they’re out of stock until June/July. I’d rather order one from you if at all possible.
    Regards, Sam
