Grissim that is really cool that you can close the grippers that far without specific training. I have up to the #1 and plan on picking up the 1.5 and 2 soon. I made a classic noob mistake when I first started training with the CoC's. I did too much work with them and my tendons were screwed up for months. You definitely have to build into using them regularly.
