Not particularly interested in what Hall does, I find him irritating. Always nice to see a big number go up, just rather see someone like Benni do it, he is looking in fine form at the minute.
Terry seems positive and is making the right noises, I'd like to see him do something impressive.
Also Loz, man that guy deserves a break. Never seen him pull so well a couple of years back at Headingley when he tore his lat, he has a bigger number in his locker without a doubt, hope he gets to show it.

There seems to be several big pullers coming into some good form at the minute, some weeks off yet mind but it does have the makings of a real interesting battle.

I'm tipping Shaw (if he lifts) to win with around 470-475.

I'm also thinking 500kg will not get pulled for a good couple of years yet, if at all... !!!

Hall 500kg.

Hollands 480kg.

Thor 465kg.

A few others 455kg for 100lbs.

I expect 6 to go over 1000lbs. Shaw, Pritchett and Benni being the other 3. I have Shaw lower simply because he won't risk injury close to WSM.

Nobody is doing 500 kilos, but the number of lifts over 450kg will be higher than ever. I suspect the win will be some where between 466-470.

I agree with this. I don't think Shaw will go for a win unless he's feeling very comfortable, which, given the competition, is basically impossible.

Novody ever ever ever - certainly not within 20 years.

Unless we find "Thor's hammer" (Tom Clancy) - a fictional drug, these lifts are incrementaly the absolutes for a human body.

On a side note - from how I watch, I find Shaw's deadlifts much more smooth when he's at his limit.
Is it some kind of technical superiority?

Im not sure ive ever seen a video from Shaw that was on his limits. The last couple of years at least his deadlift has looked phenomenal.

I think Sam is right though, Shaw wont risk injury so i dont think we will see him go above about 90%, if he event competes.

Are there any other non-strongmen who would be mixing it with the top finishers here, or have powerlifters been left in the dust?

I class benni as a powerlifter...apart from that it appears to be strongman.

Strongman is all about deadlift
Powerlifting is all about squat.

What about Eric Lillibridge? Straps and a suit could give him some extra pounds. He has hit over 900 in a full raw meet.

I don't think he would beat the top strongmen, but he would be close to a 1000 Imo.

agree about SQ in PL but i'd say more accurate is

EQ PL winners have massive squat + bench (e.g. dave hoff)
Raw PL winners have massive squat + dead (e.g. tom, del)

Good to see someone feeling positive and optimistic.

I do understand the whole impossible 500 thing, but I believe it can happen.

I don't think Eddie is near 500 at all.
His 465kg deadlift was an absolute grinder.Long bar or not.If someone is close to 500kg he lifts 465 with ease...

Everybody saying 500 not happening are retarded. If ed is saying he will do it then it's pretty bloody likely he will.

Oh my prediction is that a bunch of them will get injured - pretty safe bet
