I'm looking into buying some grippers for my brother as he's pretty much exhausted the use of an old pair of Everlast branded wood-handled grippers that I gave him a few years ago. I have no idea what they're rated at, but I'm pretty sure they're a 'beginner to intermediate' item at best and my brother's a pretty tough guy. I've been looking at three options: Option 1: Ironmind's 'Captains of Crush' grippers: Captains of Crush hand grippers - Trainer Option 2: Strengthshop grippers (similar to CoC but cheaper): Strength Shop Gripper Option 3: Heavy-duty adjustable grippers: Heavy Duty Adjustable Hand Grip For Fat Forearms 45-350 lbs The Ironmind CoC grippers are very highly regarded, however they are expensive for what they are and the resistance isn't variable. I've no reviews of the Strengthshop models so I don't know how they stack up. I'm leaning towards the adjustable gripper as it would offer variable resistance and, theoretically, more bang for my buck, but I'd love to know if anyone has any experience of any of these grippers or knows of a high-quality, budget-friendly alternative.
