Best knee wraps???
« on: February 09, 2017, 11:49:07 AM »
Ok, so some of my gear is looking beat. Just got Nike romelo 2's to replace the addipowers that I destroyed in a year. Went with the 2's because the 3's have had shitty reviews. Sounds like they made the 3's a cross fit shoe. Anyhow, I've been using the red with black stripe "regular" elite fits knee wraps for about four years. They still get the job done, but they look a little abused. It's time to step it up and get a "better" wrap, so what's the best?  I know one of the guys put a chart on here last year, but I couldn't make heads or tails of that chart. So, type slowly so I can understand.

Thanks

Ramrod has a great wrap review thread on here somewhere.

Check it out.

I like the ODIN wraps by Strengthshop.  Had them a while (2 years maybe) and they don't seem to show any signs of wear.

They are very similar to Kraits.

Definitely look into the Strength Shop Wraps. I have a set of the Odin Wraps, and Sabrina uses the Thor wraps.  The Odin's are designed as a Cast, very stiff, very little give, plenty of stopping power.  The Thor wraps aren't as stiff, and give a bit more spring.

My favorites, though, are the Redemption Powerlifting RPG3's.  They are a bit stiffer than the Krait (Elite FTS), and Odin wraps.  The guy the developed them, is Bert Underwood. RPS Chairman for Florida, and squats over 900.  So, there's a bit of trust there.

Do not fear The Iron, for it does not care.
The Iron is Resolute in Purpose, Steadfast in Intent, Unwavering in Desire, and Immovable in Stature.

You have a Video of you Squatting in a Meet or Maxing out?

I can give you a list of Wraps that fit your style of Squat. I have about every Wrap out sitting right here.

There are few few I haven't picked up yet. the RPG's and Elite FTS stuff. I think most of Elite FTS wraps are copies of other brands.

Most Wraps are made overseas and from already pre-made material. They just color it different and brand it as their own. There are a few that are special thou.

Bench - 340 / 476
Deadlift - 550 / 676

Here's 501 from last year.  This is the only squat video I have of myself where it looks like I struggle.  I usually drop fast and come up fast.  I was using the elite fts "regular wraps" 200cm.  I've since tried the elite fts "patriot wraps" 300cm, the slingshot blue wraps 250cm, and the elite fts mavericks 250cm.  I've settled on the 250cm mavericks based on feel and how I feel wrapping them myself.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated. 

Thanks
