Mighty Mitts Pop's Gripper with SpeedPort Socket

The perfect blend of old school grip training and cutting edge loading parameters makes for an absolute "game changer". Plate loaded grippers will only get you so far, but Richard Sorin kicked it up another notch, and made this grip tool band compatible in a multitude of ways for varied loading. The bands (two sizes included) allow for resistance, even without any plates. The bands accommodate resistance (for those of you training to shut the next spring style gripper) and make it possible for conjugate style grip training!
The Pops Gripper now includes the SpeedPort™ Socket, which is an attachment port for various grip training implements. One attachment is our CrushBooster™, to train for other types of grip strength. The CrushBooster works with the included Bands, making the Pops Gripper the most complete training Gripper on the market. Easy to transport and load Olympic or standard plates, this gripper is a close replica of the model Richard trained on in the 70's & 80's on his way to becoming the first man to close #3 Captain of Crush Gripper. Will you be the next grip legend?

Other Shorts bands are available for additional cost (and resistance)

great product....actually....excellent product!

Wanted an old school grip machine for variety on grip and forearm training. Well built, certainly backs up existing reviews. I had seen a youtube clip, someone commented on placing a wood shim under the plate loader making the handles easier to grip. I use this machine in a high rise condo with concrete floor, to eliminate noise of metal on metal when using this machine and not make noise for those who live below me, I did a modification of my own. I used left over edging from my floor mat squares, first shortened the end then shaved down the height to use as a thin spacer between the plate loader and frame. Now as it lowers it stays quiet, great when I use this late at night. Using the bands and weight plates together, this is such a great machine, only regret not having one of these around earlier. I recommend this to anyone even slightly considering. Don't waste time thinking this over buy now and start using, it really is that good!

Best Value Plate Loadable Gripper

Brent Quandt from Lincoln , NE United States
Oct 09, 2015

I received my Pop's today- its weighs 45 pounds and is very sturdy, even over built. The hardware includes nylock nuts, the finish is durable. It is noisy when used and has a little play in the rails by design. The handles are very thick but in my opinion it gives a more comfortable feel. The included bands provide smooth consistent resistance. The range of motion could be better as the handles never touch. Free Shipping and good customer service add to the value of this excellent product.

Fantastic Gripping Tool!

Jonathan Taliani from Dayton, OH United States
Oct 09, 2015

I purchased the Pop's Gripper and the CrushBooster. Both of these tools provide an excellent workout for a great price! Not only does this machine work as well or better than higher priced units BUT it also provides the ability to use bands AND INCLUDES THE BANDS. The bands are an invaluable tool, whether used on their own or in conjunction with plates. Unlike plates alone, the bands provide progressive tension making you really work to get the complete close. This is contrasted by the linear tension that traditional plate loaded machines provide. If you are trying to shut torsion spring grippers, you know that they also get considerably harder towards the end. When you factor in everything you get, there are no units on the market that even come close to providing as much bang for your buck.

The ghost of Arthur Jones can eat his heart out

Beau Resnick from San Francisco, California
Oct 09, 2015

After over 25 years of grinding away with an I.S.G. (Ivanko super gripper) digging into my palm before purchasing Pop's Gripper. The first blessing: I love being able to quantify my grip strength in kilos and pounds. Now it is easier to quantify progress. Second blessing: THE BANDS(!) allow me to go as fast as I want with the tension increasing as I gain mechanical advantage. The ghost of Arthur Jones can eat his heart out. When my order arrived it was missing a pair of caps or plugs, but your customer service had them delivered to me promptly. Five Stars each for design, fabrication and follow up service. Only problem is I'm finding it difficult to forgive myself for taking so long to procure the Pop's Gripper. Sincerely--lifetime loyal customer, Beau Resnick
