They all seem to be pretty much the same to me, I just get what's cheap, but I know a few people that swear by versa grips,(http://www.versagripps.com/) but I don't now how they would be with serious weights and they are more expensive. The prowriststraps seem cheap (8 for $19? or something like that) and I'm sure they would be as good as anything you'd find in a local store.

Hands down, the best wraps I've ever used are from Inzer.

I use whatever I can find, usually at our local sports store. About $8-10. However, they don't last that long. I'd say try the Inzers, they seem to be the most reliable from what I've read.

I think any wraps from a powerlifting manufacturer will be roughly the same. For the wrist it's not as big a deal in my opinion, it's not doing much other than stabilization, versus something like knee wraps that will move quite a bit more and build up tension through a squat.

I have inzer, and they are great. Only used em a few times, but they really keep things tight. I'd expect the same were I using something from Titan or Metal as well.

Considering straps of any kind aren't expensive, I wouldn't worry too much about price. A set of Inzer's might cost $10-15 more, but will probably outlast 3 sets of ordinary run of the mill wraps.

Consider that these straps are designed for powerlifters that are 200-300 lbs, lifting anywhere from 300-1000 lbs, and I think they'd meet your needs Steve.

I also recommend the Inzer iron wrist wraps. I hurt my wrist last summer and was unable to do rows, chins, or curls because moving my wrist at certain angles hurt it pretty bad, and it was impossible to avoid moving it at those angles while lifting. However once I used the wraps they kept my wrist from moving at all and I was able to train through the injury.

That is exactly my problem, there are certain exercises such as bench press, and pretty much all forearm exercises that I struggle with enormously. Are you saying that by purchasing wrist wraps, I should be able to perform these exercises with out a struggle. My range of motion is my biggest problem, very badly injured wrist...2 surgeries and 1 1/2 yrs of physio and It is still fu****...

Wrist wraps help stabilize your wrists. That's it. I started using them a while back when I started doing squats. I had an issue with my wrists giving out and really hurting afterward. My wrists weren't strong enough to hold the weight up for the period of time I was doing. The wraps really helped and now I can hold up quite a bit of weight w/o worrying about my wrists giving out. I use them all the time now. I think the wraps have helped me quite a bit.

Uhm, Inzer I guess. I get my wraps at the local sports store. Everlast is what I'm using right now. They seem ok. I give them another month before the velcro becomes useless.
