Pads touching freestyle - the place where true sense of steel bending is realized. Minimal wraps, touching in the middle, no additional leverage. Only you and your wrist strength. Submissions for this rating are accepted only on 7” bars.
Barehand freestyle - top notch, absolute domination. The purest test of mental strength and mastery of handling with the bar. The art of defeating the steel without piercing yourself.
Unbraced triathlon - a test of versatility of a steel bender. To get in top places in this list you will have to bend not single, but three bars with three different styles.
