the jump for #1 can be #2 daunting. i have all of them up to #3.5. getting the #1.5 is a good idea. you can add some braced and choked closes with the #2. also, close with two hands, and hold, or controlled negative, but use sparingly. two reps as a finisher works well. 'no set' closes should be the core of your gripper training.
make sure you dont overtrain your grip. some things that will help you on your path to closing captains of crush. is to do pinch holds (take 2 10 lb plates face them together smooth sides out and pinch it) hub lifts and towel holds. i think just doing anything that will challenge your grip will help in closing the gripper. rice grabs are a must.

it was just so easy for him. a #2 is different. unfortunately i don't really remember if it was the 1 or 2 he closed with two fingers. but i can assume it was the coc 1. few people got close to my 2. maybe 2 people ever closed it. as for my strongman friends, a friend of mine closed a coc #3 after i showed him how to do it.
