Anybody familiar with this device from Elite Fitness:
http://www.ringtraining.com/articles/general-info/estsetup.html
What is it supposed to accomplish?

Something that basically makes strength moves on rings easier, and give you a way to progress to an iron cross, maltese, victorian(hahaha) Just increases your leverage.

Their cool, but you can find plans to build them online, think it was patrick donnelys log, cant find the exact link though. Bet steven has it.

I don't have it... don't need that kinda stuff! :p

Nah, it's great for training cross and other stuff like Timy said although I've found it feels a bit different than actually doing spotted cross or such things on the rings. Probably don't need it, but if you ever want to learn the moves it may be a good idea to use something like this to help you find the positions to hold

Steven or Frank-

Do you guys know if the EST is out yet? I saw the article for setup, but didnt see it in the shop section.

Friend of mine is interesting in purchasing it to see if he can achieve a cross faster than I did, and I am too honestly.

Thanks in advance.

Shoot an e-mail to Tyler... it was up in the store and now it's not.. I think they might be revamping it or something coming out with a new and improved version.

I noticed that it wasn't in the shop section also. Found that curious but not to the point of pursuing it.

I'd like to hear about the outcome of your friend's attempt though. Maybe you could post about it? For that matter, I'd like to hear about the circumstances around your own doings with performing an IC.

Spotted cross attempts are still much faster though if you want to pursue obtaining it. Stick along the lines of 3 reps with as little assist as possible.

The one problem I have with assists that go on your forearms is it actually feels a bit different than the real cross. So it takes a bit to transition over once you're strong enough to do it.
