We compile all the data of every hand gripper we rate into our hand gripper ratings data spreadsheet. You can see the results below to compare how your gripper matches up.

What does hand gripper rating mean?
Rating a hand gripper just means you will be given an accurate figure of what weight is required to close the hand gripper (legs touching). This value is given in lb's.
Why is the hand gripper 'rating' different from whats on the gripper?
The poundage rating given to the hand grippers is provided by the spring manfacturer. This is the strength required to completley close the spring. The addition of handles reduces the range of motion required to close the spring, so the rating required is less.
Each spring has a slightly different tension, this is barely noticable at a low level but when you start getting up above 100lb's these can vary by +/- 10lb, which is a noticable difference.
WHY SHOULD I GET MY HAND GRIPPERS RATED?
Getting your hand grippers rating is a great way to ensure you are training towards your specific needs. For example you might have bought a 100lb hand gripper but the accurate rating could be 105lb and this will answer why you feel it is taking you longer to close it than you thought it would.
Accuracy and precision is vital when it comes to training and hitting your goals.
Why we provide these ratings
Providing this information is, we think essential. There are many different types of hand grippers, each manufacturer offers their own ratings but depending on spring quality, material and how well wound they are, the poundage can differ greatly. This is why we think using rated grippers is the best way to progress your training.
