6-21-10: Reverse Bending

6-21-10, Monday


-1/4″X7″ Drill Rod (O-1) to 58 degrees in 2 seconds…easy bend in 1 hit

-1/4″X7″ Hex to 60 degrees in 20 seconds…much harder than I expected it to feel and had to switch leads to get it done

-1/4″X6.5″ Drill Rod (O-1) to 57 degrees in 1 second…easy bend, seem to be warming up a bit more now

-Mutant 60D to 59 degrees in 3 seconds…2 hits, but the first hit was probably at 40 degrees or slightly more – pleased with this bend since these Mutant 60Ds are as hard as most solid Grade 5s

-1/4″X7″ Hex to 58 degrees in 11 seconds…very hard bend – had to switch leads – feels like the 1/4″ Hex I have left over is super hard, harder than a G5 for sure at this length

*Overall Notes: Been a while since I bent in any style, much less reverse – which is my weakest style even with no training of DU or DO this year.  Was watching some WEC fights on tv so I just needed something to pass some time inbetween the “filler” fights.
