Yeah, but I see where he gets it from in a way. I dropped my box pulls from 4" to 2" and the weight flies up, and I have no doubt that from the floor it will be the same way. The 1" deficit helps as well I think.

Still threw me off a bit haha

Great work in here, looks like you are getting some solid rewards with The Cube.

You should check out the page they have up on Facebook if you're on there, Brandon posts in there regularly and there's always good help and feedback as well. What have you got on for the weekend James?
