Goody's been having some wrist and hand issues lately, and by the looks he is finally getting it back to near 100%.
Goody levered an 8-lb hammer at the World Series of Grip back last March and it was no problem. If he can stay injury free, I think he can do very well in the 07-08 Grip season.

Adam Glass isn't messing around. Any 7-inch Red Nail he sees he destroys and now he's tired of them and moving on to 6-inchers.
IronMind Red Nail certification should be coming very soon.
Check out his page - AdamTGlass.blogspot.com/, then go eat some steak.

Smitty has been working his ass off bringing a lot of our pages up to the next level. Here is the Bending Page that he just showed who's boss.
If you've ever enjoyed any of the designs on the website guys, ya gotta direct these props to the man, Smitty. Dude's got serious skills and will not rest until something looks the way he wants it to.
Nice work, Smitty. Thanks for your craftsmanship with the site.
