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! Short Unbraced Snap

1. The unbraced rules in force here are a pure unbraced style. The hands are not to intentionally touch your chest, waist, neck or anything. Small nails are being snapped, so this feat is all about hand strength and endurance.
2. Keep bending back and forth till the nail snaps, then move onto another. Keep going till the 10 minutes time period is up.
3. You may snip/file the point off the nail if you wish.
4. Wraps for protection will be the World of Grip 10" x 4" suede wraps. You may use both or one wrap.
5. No gloves are allowed. No wrapping or taping of any part of wrist, and hands is allowed.
6. Only chalk is allowed.
7. Time limit = 10 mins to snap as many nails as possible.

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.
