BAH! Of course you can grab off a 5 foot jump. I think I've grabbed while ollieing before. It's all about pre-loading. I realize this is off-topic but I'd love to show you guys the little rail park setup at Nakiska at the moment that I'm doing grabs at. There's barely any grade and I'm just jumping off the rail kickers and doing some grabs for fun.

I'll trade you! I was was 135-140 pounds for ages, sometime in my early 20's I got sedentary and hit 170-180 pretty quick. Now I have to make a conscious effort to stay around 160 lb. Muscle does seem easier to build now that I'm a fat bastard!
