TORQUE

Buy steel stock below!

TORQUE! is all about truly testing our wrists and hands. There are many different mountains, but how you attempt the mountain is the challenge. The view at the top is the same, but the feeling inside is different.

Rules for TORQUE! Braced Snap

1. The bar may be bent over the knee, leg, head, neck, stomach. The bar cannot be bent by the feet or on the floor.
2. Wraps for protection for the hands will be the World of Grip 10" x 4" suede wraps. You can have two wraps on each side if you wish.
3. No gloves are allowed. No wrapping or taping of any part of wrist, and hands is allowed.
4. Padding to bend the bar over can be of any suitable material like cloth, canvas, towel, nylon or leather. but cannot contain any rigid components. You can strap the towel to your leg with a knee wrap so that the towel stays in place.
5. Only chalk is allowed.
6. Bend the steel bar, back and forth till it snaps. Time limit = 20 minutes
7. Once 8mm thick stock starts in the levels all bends higher are to be with 8mm stock, till you reach the 10mm level where all bars have to be 10mm, and so forth.

All bending claims should be accompanied with a video (Youtube, sent to me, etc) unless it was done in a ratified contest, under these rules, or in front of me. This video should show the bar tag, and the length and width of the bar using a ruler, and a calliper (digital), prior to the start of the bend.
