I like challenges. When I was younger I played foosball for money. I got 9.5 inches in two pulls and just a squeak under 12 in three. If I did a few with that purpose in mind I'm certain I could get up around 13" or maybe a little more. I torqued this one about half-way up (trying too hard) and that cost me a little height.
Thanks for pointing that out, it was fun.
