New updated version of our world-class Armwrestling Straps!

Over the years, we have tested different versions of Armwrestling Straps. The problem with Armwrestling Straps is to find a perfect balance with a strap material that is soft and flexible, but still strong enough and not too slippery, so that the buckle is able to lock the strap. This must be combined with a buckle that has high durability and strength, but still have sufficient flexibility to be easy to tighten and loosen. We have tested all possible materials such as plastic, metal, nylon, etc. Every material has their pros and cons. The plastic buckles are available in several different variations based on different compounds and our very first version of Armwrestling Straps had buckles made of plastic of the same type that Mazurenko and other manufacturers use. What we realized was that these do not measure up to our quality demands, as the buckle breaks relatively easily, either from very heavy loads or with frequent use.
We then went over to test metal, which unfortunately was worse in a lot of other ways. Admittedly impossible to break, but incredibly difficult to tighten and loosen and was hard to use. Our next step was Nylon, which we used in the previous version of our Armwrestling Straps, which until now has been the best material for the buckle in our opionion. However, there are some disadvantages with Nylon and it is mainly that they, like the metal buckles, can be perceived as hard to tighten and loosen, even if it´s not as bad as with the metal buckles.
Now we have returned to plastic again, but after extensive searching, we found a plastic buckle made of the right type of plastic compound and with a quality that does not resemble any buckle we have previously tried. The straps are super easy to tighten and loosen, which is positive for all referees around the world :). But despite this, they have extremely high durability and passed our load test for 200kg (~440 lbs) without issues. The buckle broke when reaching 220kg (~480lbs), but didn’t even budge at 200kg (~440 lbs). We have also extended the straps by about 10 cm (~4″) to ensure that there is enough strap left over to tighten even when biggest guys in the world armwrestle.
This ensures that the straps can handle all types of matches, regardless of whether it is heavyweights facing each other or just frequent use during training. Our search is finally over, we have a hard time seeing how we could now create even better Armwrestling Straps.

The new versions of Multispinner & Wrist Wrench handles are now in stock!

They are finally here, our new generation of Multispinner & Wrist Wrench handles!
Now made out of steel, which guarantees that you get a handle that will last many, many years to come.

Read more about our new Multispinner handle here.
Read more about our new Wrist Wrench handle here.

As the handles are made of steel, with laser-cut slots for the straps and powder-coated with a special color, the price is higher than on our previous plastic handles. Unfortunately, higher quality and durability means that the price will also be higher. All parts for manufacture the handles cost a lot and we always aim to sell products at the lowest possible price. In this case, however, you get a unique handle that is well worth the money, as everything is of absolute highest quality. If you buy a handle like this, you have a training partner who will be with you for a long time to come.
Unfortunately, we have a limited stock of both types of handles as it costed us both time and money to develop these new handles. But we are working hard to get more handles as soon as possible. If you want to avoid waiting, you should get yours before they are out of stock.

Important information regarding Multispinner & Wrist Wrench handles!

Hi.
As you have noticed, we have sold out of our Multispinner & Wrist Wrench handles and the products have now been discontinued. This is because our previous manufacturer decided to stop manufacturing products, which is really sad, as the handles maintained a very high quality and have been appreciated by our customers due to the unique grip surface that no one else uses.
BUT we have good news, we are working full time with the manufacturer of our steel handles (Robert Baraban) to produce new versions of these handles with the same excellent grip surface and even better quality, as the handles will be made of steel pipe instead of PVC. This means that longevity and durability increase drastically and we will be able to provide completely unique handles that are not available at any other store in the world.
Unfortunately, it is a time-consuming job to develop new products, so we hope for your patience as we expect to get these new handles during the fall. The manufacturer is currently developing prototypes and after that is completed they will be tested. After the evaluation, there may be some adjustments, for example regarding the painting mixture, etc.
So our hope is to be able to offer these new handles in September (with a little luck, already in August), depending on how much adjustments that needs to be done and different lead times for materials and so on.
We will promote these on our Social Media channels and through our blog when they are available for sale.

We stop selling Multispinner Handle & Wrist Wrench Handle …

Unfortunately, our manufacturer of these handles has suffered a personal tragedy and thus the handle manufacturing will be put on hold…
We are truly sorry for this and unfortunately there is no other manufacturer that can manufacture these completely unique handles. We still have a bunch of handles in stock, so if you want to be sure to get one before they run out, you should hurry up before the stock runs out.

Of course, we hope that our manufacturer will be able to resume production in the future, but at present there is no plan for when this could happen.

EDIT 2022-03-01:
We now sell Multispinner Handles and Wrist Wrench Handles from a new manufacturer and you will find information about the products below.

Temporary flight surcharge for shipping to Australia, Canada, China & USA!

Unfortunately, we are forced to charge a temporary fee in addition to the shipping cost for deliveries to Australia, Canada, China & USA. The amount of the fee varies between 10 SEK upto 92 SEK (about 1 upto 10 USD), depending on the weight and the destination country and the fee is shown at checkout. However, we have chosen NOT to charge this fee for shipments that weigh more than 2kg, which means the fee is included for larger parcels.
This fee has been temporarily introduced by PostNord, similar to all other freight companies, to compensate for the increased costs for shipments by air. The increased costs are mainly due to the severely limited air traffic that still prevails. Hopefully this fee don’t remain too long and we hope to be able to remove it as soon as possible.
We hope that our customers understand the situation and understand that this is out of our control.

We also stop sales to the UK!

Due to the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, which occurs on December 31th 2020 and the fact that they are introducing a requirement for e-merchants to register for VAT, we will stop all sales with effect immediately. This is to avoid the problem with shipments that are sent before the due date, with the risk of arriving after the due date.
We know that we have had very many satisfied customers from the UK and it’s with great sadness that we now close the doors for another country.

We are really sorry for this, but hope for understanding.

Sales to Norway is stopped…

Due to the new rules introduced by the Norwegian authorities in 2020 (the VOEC scheme), which means unreasonably regulations & demands on a small online store like ours, we will stop selling to Norway with immediate effect. We apologize for the inconvenience, as we have been happy to receive Norwegian customers in our store.
We had a big sale of Armwrestling Straps to the Norwegian Armwrestling Association during the spring and it is not impossible that more sales may take place, as other rules apply to sales to companies & organizations.
We know that we have had very many satisfied customers from the Norway and it’s with great sadness that we now close the doors.

We are really sorry for this, but hope for understanding.

We can now offer sales to the whole world!

We have now opened up to receive orders from all over the world!
Unfortunately, shipping prices are relatively high in Sweden compared to other countries and unfortunately there is not much we as a small store can do to influence this. Sweden has high taxes, especially the VAT that is 25% on virtually all types of products/services, this also applies to shipping costs. And in general, the prices for shipping are high even without VAT.
However, we want to point out that the products we sell are both unique and specific and many of our products are of the type that you only buy once. So even though the shipping cost can be perceived as high, especially for customers who order from a country other than Sweden, you can look at it from the perspective that our products have very low prices compared to other stores and some products can not even be bought elsewhere.

We look forward to your purchase and we can also offer excellent customer service, which not all companies offer.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: 2020-10-24 Sales to Norway is stopped…
