If you've done a Savage Race, then you have seen this rope grip obstacle, known as "Twirly Bird". But I think it looks more like a beard, and since I am a bearded guy, my version of it will be called "Twirly Beard". This grip consists of 14, 3/8" rope, approximately 18" in length. Why 14 you ask? Because that's what you'll see on race day. Ropes are attached to a stainless steel ring, which means it will not rust, and has a weight bearing capacity of over 500lbs, with marine-grade heat shrink at the ends of each rope to prevent fraying. If Savage is in your future, you're going to want to add this to your training.
Twirly Beard will include the hanging strap, so it is ready to hang right from the box.
Just like the ones in the race. If you find yourself failing this obstacle, then these are a must.
