View Full Version : Super Katana sizing

09-14-2009, 07:13 PM
My single f6 was a size 44, my first katana (before the super came out) was also a 44 and my last shirt was a 2-ply f6 in sz. 46. All shirts were difficult to touch (the 2-ply being the hardest) but then again, I was only creeping up 400lb. I was 198lb when I had these shirts but now I am 209lb and plan to stay this weight or creep up 220 (the class I will compete in). Should I go with a size 46 or 48 for the super katana?

In a word, yes... Go w/ a 46-48. You can always get the shirt adjusted in. I wear a 48 in a f6, but ordered a 50 in the SK per Ken Andersons advice and I'm glad I did...

The NXG+ material is some heavy stuff. Trust me, much harder to touch the SK than the f6!!!

BTW, great shirt, just have to work it down the bds. to touch & break-in.

Best route to go is just call Ken Anderson. He'll size you right or fix it. Andersonpowerlifting.com

If you size the shirt by chest measurement, you'll get a very tight fit. Going chest+one size up will give you a fairly tight shirt, but still allow you to touch a lighter weight. I have a 48 chest, and wear a 48 super, but a 50 would probably be a better opening attempt shirt for me.

There's obviously more to it than just what I described, but it should give you a a frame of reference.

I use the F-6 and the Super Katana. Per Ken Anderson's advice they are the same size. I pretty much use the F-6 as a training shirt or for higher boards and the SK for full range and low board heavy lifts. Both shirts are one size smaller than my chest measurment and both are tough to touch in. Ken's great at picking sizes. Let him know if you want the shirt for training, or competing and how tight you want it to be.

ken is great at picking the size. i met him in person at a meet in san jose, ca. and bought a f6 from him. he picked the size, i bought it, and when i put it on a few days later, it was a perfect fit. ken is the man.

I spoke with Ken and I ordered me a 46. It sucks that I can't try it this Tues (ME Bench) cause my training partner has a doctor visit. Next week though!
