IMO these are the best training grips out there. A lot of great thought went into these and it's very apparent when using them.

Get them!

I'd get'em just to show'em off. They look like art compared to my fingerboard.

If its a good product I want to know and I want other people to know about it so that they can make some money on innovative ideas that improve the way we train.

Have ordered them, they impressed me very much, looking forward receiving them. How long might it take to ship them to Switzerland?

Looks like a lot of sharp edges that would be hard on the tendons.

I've always been extremely conservative when it comes to training and damaging my tendons. I've been using these almost daily at my local gym and I can tell you from experience that they are extremely ergonomic and there are no sharp edges to worry about.

It's amazing how many configurations you can create with these grips. Extremely versatile!

Looks like it could cam in a crack well, maybe about the size of a #6 Camalot?

Sure looks lighter, too.

Those are cool. When folks start getting them please post a few videos. I am looking forward to seeing them in action. They are cool enough I might have to buy two sets. One for home and one for the gym at work;;

If you want to send me your name or email address, to craig@sicgrips.com, I can check on it. Even though things get sent Priority mail it starts slowing down some this time of year...

Hello Craig, thank you, I ordered them two days ago and they will be shipped to switzerland - I don't think we can really speed it up. :-) But many thanks, I'll post it when they arrived and my arms are exhausted the first time.
thanks, Peter

Hi Peter, I've sent you an email with the USPS tracking information. My experience is that this time of year with international First Class shipping things can go really slow. Hopefully you'll get it within 6-10 working days however, things have taken as long as 3 weeks. :-( Unfortunately that is out of our hands. Hope it arrives in a timely fashion.

Am I the only one who would rather not have his finger board move around? Seem dangerous to me.

I see these more similar to RockRings kind of device, except with alot more variety. Yes, they will move some but I don't plan on lunges or swinging moves, just dead body hangs with or without feet/knees on the ground. I never liked having a board nailed up at one specific height very much. I can change height and angle with these for alot more variety.

Help me understand you. How does changing the height of your hangboard/rock rings/"g-strings" provide more "variety"?

Personally, I absolutely DO NOT want the device I'm hanging from to move at all. It's already problematic enough to pull into a weighted hang on the hangboard without introducing slight body swing when your feet leave the ground. I really fine tune my stepping aid (stack of boards on the ground) so that I can start the hang at exactly the right position (which varies relative to which hold is used and where the hold is on the hangboard, thus the step-boards) to avoid ANY bodyswing. And that's with a rigid mounted board. It would be completely impossible with these devices.

I think from a design standpoint, these are very innovative to get as much variety in grip position out of a small device as they do. They look well-made, aesthetic. But I don't see them as a valuable training tool for anyone beyond the very early stages of training...for finger strength anyway. If you are into doing pullups, or training shoulder girdle stability type things similar to rings exercises, they may be great. But I don't do pullups, and haven't for many years, they're just a ticket to elbow problems but that's a different debate. For fingers/grip strength, a hangboard is going to be a vastly superior apparatus.
