Yes, you are right about the gains, I surprised myself! I started at 7.5 lbs, and after 4-5 months have worked up to 18.75 lbs, my current range would be 13.75 to 18.75 depending of the fatigue/soreness factor. The de-gelled BIB starter so far is fine, I do have the regular BIB. What other hangers did you have in mind? The BIB is the primary factor in the gains, my angles are BTC, SD, SO to the right and to the left- these seem to hit the ligs and the musculature, etc. coprehensively (divide and conquer).
I was thinking in particular of MonkeyBar’s vacuum hanger. I’ve found ways to wrap with the vacuum hanger that has enabled me to hang over 15# for literally hours at a time with no blisters. I’m almost certain I could make it to 20# without problems.
