The Bash is not a great shirt. I'd look to get an Ace or a Jack. They are quality shirts and will last a long time.
Try posting on PLW. But to speak of the bash shirt, I probably get at least 100 lbs. out of mine. I am not sure of my raw bench(nor do I care) but I would guess around 270 to 280 with press call and I just got 405 in my bash.
I would like to try the Jack but I tried the ACE but didn't hardly get anything out of it. I tried 350 and took a lot to get down and no pop off the chest. I know some guys it works great for but not me.
I know Joey likes metal gear, and I'm sure the bash is just fine for a beginner shirt, but it would be a lot easier to get a hold of a beginner shirt like an F6 or even a loose katana or rage x since they are more widely used. If you don't limit yourself to a specific shirt you could probably pick up a good used beginner shirt for pretty cheap. They aren't all the same, but they all work and you can probably save money if you go used and don't care about which company the shirt comes from.
I have a Single Ply Rage X size 54 that I am willing to part with
Let me know if your interested
I have this exact shirt. never worn (too small for me. Ill PM you
Glad to see the Bash is working for you.
