Looking to buy my first shirt. The guy who has been helping me train suggest I go with a single ply rage x. How does this sound? Any suggestions?

Really depends on your style bro... Are you an arched bencher or flat?

Flat= Inzer Rage or Titan fury
Arched= RageX or Titan F6

Both are good shirts but the titan is more affordable.

I liked my titan f6. very easy to learn, easy to touch. got 100+lbs out of it. (double ply) I definitely think its a good first shirt. I think it depends a lot on who you train with also, having experience plays a big role

Another vote for the F6. It was my first shirt, single ply. I got about 150lbs out of it.

Do you have ppl around you that know how to bench in a shirt? these shirts(rage, rage x, fury, f6) are fairly advanced shirts even though they are single ply.

I had a fury for my first shirt. So long as you get it sized a little big, you'll be fine.

Most people get them sized too tight in hopes that they will get a lot out of them in their first go round. Get this one big and get a tighter one later.

Alright cool thanks for the info. Yes I train with people who know how to use the shirt in fact I have a very good bench presser guiding my training. I will look into it some more as I want to compete at some point in the future. Thank you again.

Great call! A shirt is significantly easier to get loose and grow into then dealing with the pain of touching in a tight shirt right away.

It doesn't matter that much what shirt you get. Just get one and start using it.

Then you should just start trying out shirts that the other guys have. My first shirt was a double rage-x, but it belonged to a guy that weighed 250 when I weighed 215. If you have other shirted benchers you train with I would just start borrowing equipment and get a feel for it.

Fury or F6 are both very good shirts for someone in your position. I still wear a Fury in training I bought 5 years ago and I've moved up in weight class since then. They're very durable and will last a while. You'll get good carryover after a few sessions in them (even if it's a little loose) and you can still work up to getting 1 or 2 hundred out of them with work.

Fury or F6. Better shirts. Better guarantees against blowouts & runners. Better results.

I will add also when I thought I outgrew my F6, I sent it to Ken Anderson who scooped and reinforced the neck and opened the back, it was like having a new shirt again for not much money.
So the room to grow exists also, if you get used to it quick and need more, modify it.

Agree with Fury or F6 depending on how much you arch. As mentioned above they are very durable. I trained in my 1st Fury for about 3 years; competing about 7-8 times a year and training in it once per week. I only stopped using it to go to the F6 when my arch improved.

+1 for the Fury...... my wife has been doing well with a single ply Overkill as well, but for a rank beginner that'd be too much shirt

I think I got 100lbs out of the Fury pretty easily before I moved on to Denim and then the super-poly shirts

If you go Titan call Ken Anderson

Hey thanks for the feedback! Looks like I am going to go with a fury. How do I get in contact with Ken Anderson?
