Nemesis Grips

Nemesis Grips is a newcomer to the grip implement world.  They are based out of Carp, Ontario, Canada.  Andrew Nguyen is a true renaissance man as a strength athlete, photographer, metal craftsman and small business owner.  Everything can be customized and the stock offerings certainly cover the gamut of pinch/thumb strength, wrist strength, open hand strength, vertical strength and strongman.

I was originally considering them for the 1.9 inch dumbbells and 2.5 inch dumbbells and collars for USAWA lifting, but could not help myself and added a rolling thumber.

They have more common grip items like half sphere, key pinch - ball, key pinch - coin, pinch block, round hub, rolling handles, vertical cone and vertical rocket.

They also have novel designs like key pinch - nut, square hub, and rolling chimera.

Finally they offer a Saxon Bar (2x5, 3x4) and axle bars (standard and stubby from 1.9, 2-3/8, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4 and 4.5 inches).  I would love to meet the athlete that can put up numbers on a 4.5 inch axle bar.

Finally they have contest tools including uprights, knock bar and crossbar.

They are not just implements, they offer photography and climbing wall services and building a community starting with the "Feather Crush - First Blush" a women's only grip contest in March.

I am beyond excited to get my new implements.  Depending on quality and service, I could see myself picking up more implements and maybe even an axle bar down the road.  Yes, shipping from Canada is expensive, but sometimes it is worth it.
