    I personally don't oil anything and mine are going great after 10 years. I clean dead skin out of the grips from time to time and wipe it down with a gun cloth to get moisture off of them. It's not all that deep, worst case you move up to a higher strength by the time they show any real signs of wear heh.

      Thanks for the answers.
      One more thing though, you guys seem to know a thing or two about the grippers. When closing the gripper (till there's a nice metallic click, my right hand does fine), but my left hand closes them in a very weird way. The gripper doesn't close in a straight way, the two grip parts seem to move in a circular motion, overlapping each other, and never closing in a straight way like when using my right hand.

      Any ideas why? (It also feels weird when holding them on my left hand, it's like they don't fit right)

        Without seeing you do it, first thing that comes to mind is some sort of torsion from not having the same level of strength as your dominant hand.

          Makes sense. That was my first impression of the matter. Time will tell.

          Thanks for the answer.

            Go to the diesel crew's youtube page and check out how to properly set the grippers in your hand. Jed is one of the top grip competitors in the world. Make sure you are setting them properly in both hands. Then go to work. If u cant find anything, i will try to post links tomorrow.

              I'm starting to think it's not the strength of my left hand. I am sure I can close it (and I do, multiple times and I even "over close" it, it just doesn't close right). Therefore I assume it's something with my technique.

              Point is the video has music, so I can't hear the instructions. I'd really appreciate some help with that matter.

                It could be your wrist and not your grip strength, do it with your right hand slowly and pay attention to position of everything from elbow down, then do it again with your left and see if you notice any difference.
