Good call dropping the lighter class. They never show up, so 0-165 or 0-175 is the right call after that 30lb increments are good. Only problem is most of your good/elite 235's can also win the heavys...(ie Ron Bath, Wilton, Chaffee etc) so a 220 cut off would break most of that action up.

0-154, 155-176, 177-198, 199-242, 243+ lots of competition in the 220 and 242 class i think making it one class would make things alot more interesting. and if your 250 pounds and having trouble beating 280 or 300+ pound guys just loose 8 or so pounds and pull 242 jmo

Fu#k it! Lets go old school and do one open class. Bracket everyone by weight though and pay out down further like to 6th or so. If nothing else do 199 and under, 200+ event. That's what it was back when armwrestling was legit. I still say the number one thing we lack is spectators. Spectators will come when we offer a product worth watching and I guarantee you that spectators don't give a damn about who the strongest 166.5lb puller is. They want to know who the baddest sumbitch in the building is. We baby ourselves too much. Offer one big Pro class like this first and do a 3 class amateur mens and a open womens event afterward and you will be on your way to a crowd pleasing time. Save all the 10lb classes and boredom for Nat'ls and Worlds. With spectators will come more participants. Bet on that.
I vote 175-220-265-265+, It's already tough enough on the 245-250lb guy going against a 300lb+ guy and now your wanting to push it back to 235 from 242+. JMO
Lmao that's good stuff man
At some point or another weight is ....just weight
175-205-235-236 plus - or
176- 198-220-221 plus for the same reason Giles mentioned, of course if Brzenk and Toddzilla are in the house that goes out the window as well, but these are also WAF classes and the 176 and 198 are heavily supported, the 220 has a lot of support in the south and is not offered many times outside of that or it would probably have good support there as well
