Well after I bought a belt (Inzer forever belt 1prong 10mm)
It's time for some wrist wraps, the bench press starts to hurt my wrist.
What really caught my eye were the EFTS Heavy Wrist Wraps, a lot of good reviews
On those, affordable price and free shipping.
EDIT: I've also seen the EFTS Enforcer, what is the difference?

I'm currently benching 200lbs for 5 reps but it keeps going up,
So it must fit for heavier weight as well.

Those wraps have good quality and durability?

Which one should I get?

I never even wore wrist wraps until I was benching 400 or so (raw) so honestly I really wouldn't stress yourself out about it too much. Anything will work well.

1. I would not get wrist wraps unless you are planning to use a shirt, where you are handling much more weight than your body can really handle.
Wearing wraps at your level will create a weak point that you really dont have yet, wrist strength. You are WAY better off just getting stronger. I have wrist wraps but only use them if I'm wearing a shirt, or at the meet, and Im stronger for it.

2. That being said, the elite heavy wraps are great, and if you buy the shorter pair, they are legal everywhere.

I use the Elite heavy wraps, I love them, but the velcro ripped off within the first week not a big issue just have to get them sewn back up. These wraps are stiff and dont stretch much almost more of a cast type of wrap.

I second the focus on not needing wraps. I however have a pair of inzer wraps that i have had for I think 5 years. Still work great. I lift raw, and primarily only use the wraps in preparation for a meet, so that I am used to how it feels before wearing them in the meet. And then I only wear them when doing triples or singles. I've done a lot more work without a belt and wraps the past couple years, and overall I think it has helped, but if you don't use them you really won't be used to them. Had a hard time adjusting to a belt again at the beginning of the year, so I use it a bit more when I get heavy.
