The HW arrived today and I was pleasantly suprised. I somewhat "overestimated" the 25er because I had underestimated the bruiser when I order it a year ago. I have no problems with all of the ABC exercises using the 25 and can even perform no choke, one handed cleans, pendulums and swipes. I can EVEN manage some full choke mills.
All in all, the 25 is one of the best investments I have made so far. Now I'm gonna have to figure out a decent routine to go with it!!
