Im after a decent set of wraps and im torn between the Inzer or Titan ones. Personal experiences on which of these two are better or something else that may be superior

I have tried APT black reaper, Metal all blacks, APT convict pros, and inzer Z wraps.

The convict pros are stiff as hell, metal all blacks and black reapers are very similar to each other and great quality but I think the APTs win over on comfort, and the inzer Z wraps I have used for years so I am most comfortable with them and are good as well, however I may be switching over soon the the APT black reaper ones. All wraps have different characteristics depending on what you like and how you wrap them. See if you can find some people that have various wraps and try them out once or twice before buying if you can.
I haven't used any titan ones so I can't give you a comparison on those.

Probably recommend Inzer wraps for your first pair but wait til better squatters give their input

make sure to get decently long ones. i made the mistake of getting my first pair too short.

definatly the best wraps, but my only caution would be recommending them for first pair. Some people have had a difficult time learning how to use knee wraps very well when going straight to the Convict Pros. My 2cents though. But yeah, I'd totally agree they are the toughest wrap out there

Not for a first wrap, LOL.

I'd suggest the blue mambas or the zrv-pros for a first wrap. Get used to them, then move up. I'm using the 2.5m Black Reapers from APT right now and love them!

The convict pros are definitely a different animal, I would not recommend them for your first wrap.

at what point would one need to step up to wraps? would the use of a belt come first in this case, or maybe briefs? thanks

Why would you do briefs before wraps?

If you squat heavy then the knees are the first thing to protect. Wraps AND a belt are required. Proper old powerlifters have always wrapped their knees what what i was taught.

I need my first set of wraps as i intend to go for 4 plates a side but i have a dodgy knee from running no less

I have access to the Inzer or Titans as i dont live in the US, i do however own a clone of the Inzer lever belt and by far the best belt i have ever owned in my life

Im aiming for a 500kg total by end of this year 220 dead 180 squat and 100 bench under 85kg in bodyweight (i have a weak bench due to inferior shoulders and tris which i am working on)

Metal All Blacks for Knee Wraps


APT Convict Pro Wrist wraps

I've used Titan THP knee wraps and they are a good choice for a beginner. I have the Metal All Blacks for wrist wraps and really like them. I can definitely see them making good knee wraps.

I've heard a lot of great things about the APT Convicts, even aside from this thread. My bro-in-law has the wrist wraps and yes, they are stiff as hell.
