Hey DA, what's the difference between classic and modern?

Knee wraps I believe.

This. Modern is with knee wraps, classic without.

Classic, no wraps or sleeves.  Modern, wraps or sleeves.  It really sucks that sleeves are included with the wrapped lifters since it gives no added support for the lift but it is what it is.

^ that is for squat.  For bench, no elbow sleeves at all unless you are lifting equipped.  Wrist wraps are allowed though.

Classic = no knee wraps (some brands of sleeves approved)

Modern = wraps allowed

Sleeves put you in Modern for RPS unless you pull them down before stepping on the platform.  That is how I competed in my first meet.  I don't know why it's okay for IPF to use sleeves in RAW and not RPS.  Now when it comes to sending records to PW, RPS will notate the use of single layer sleeves so you are ranked “Raw Without Knee Wraps” nationally.  But on that day, you would compete against guys with wraps.   And there is no way I get nearly the same rebound from my sleeves as I do with wraps.  Weird, and IMO, just nuts.

Yep, these guys have it right. For RPS.  Each Federation is slightly different, and if you decide to jump in a Meet, read the rulebook a few times, as they always have some obscure rule in there.

I've lifted in a Fed, that doesn't have a "Modern" division.  Your choice is Raw, Single Ply, or Multi-Ply.  They classify Knee Wraps as Equipped lifting, and therefore you're lifting against guys in Suits.

I'm just looking for a fed that has a non-singlet division in the big but weak class.

Actually, RPS has exactly that.

It's called, and I'm serious, the Crossfit Division.

yeah, that's crazy.  When I went to RUM, knee sleeves were fine and still considered raw, I don't think I saw any raw lifters without sleeves. The sleeves had to be on the approved list, pretty much everything 7mm and under was acceptable.

Thanks for the clarification!

The problem I see with sleeves being "raw" is when it takes a team of people to pull them up for the lifter. Using them as an aid for warmth and support is fine but using sleeves that are two sizes too small is still an advantage over truley raw lifters imo. I like the rps rule.

I see what you're saying.  I guess if you order them small enough then they would start compressing and aiding in the lift.

I heard recently that IPF now has a rule that lifters must be able to put on their knee sleeves by themselves. 

Good lawd  ;D

I'd like to know what kind of sleeves they are using that don't rip in half when they are too small.  I ordered the TK's in my correct size and they ripped in half after just a couple uses.  I can imagine some one trying to put those on 2 sizes too small and just ripping them to shreds in the process of putting them on.

USPA does theirs as raw=with sleeves, and classic raw=with wraps.
I ordered the rehband original blue sleeves one size smaller. They are easy to put on and off. If I was using them for comps, I would have ordered them 2 sizes smaller.
