    inzer rage-x sleeve question

    is there a possible way i can send my shirt back to inzer and have them put 59 arms on the shirt or do i half to buy a whole new shirt? the chest plate is fine i just need more room in the sleeves. it took about 25 minutes today trying to get the sleeves past my elbow today, and the darn thing still wasn't seated right. i tryed suit slippers, baby power, and anything imaginable. i also got a size 60 shirt, the sleeves are pretty loose on me.

    there are some people who alter gear, i don't have any specific people for inzer gear, but maybe someone else can help you out. i'm not sure if inzer does it or not.

    maybe vinnie can help you out with this

    You can send it back to be altered, or you can try stretching out the sleeves a bit with pop bottles.

    Try wetting the sleeves and the armpits before putting the shirt on. After a few uses it might break in just right.

    Have you been breaking it in by working down lower and lower to boards.

    ive never used gear and really know nothing about it at all whatsoever and really i am not qualified to give advice but have you tried taking a bike inner tube or two stuffing it into the sleeve and pumping it up with an air compressor to stretch it to all hell?

    consistency and intensity.

    I was just thinking maybe the football wasn't large enough and maybe by putting multiple inner tubes in there and blowing them up one by one you could get a better result. but footballs can be rather large, especially the college variety.

    are the sleeves longer then they need to be.
    on my rage-x there was no way i could get them on my arms, but the sleeves were also way to long, since they were tapered, i cut 1.5" off them, once i did that i was able to get it on my arm. they are still long, but i fold it over or bunch it up.

    i got a custom shirt, shortened the sleeves 2". i'm going to call inzer tomarrow and have them altered the sleeves to size 59, i think an inch more i can have more room in the sleeves and hopefully get the shirt seated correctly. i got to use my lose size 60 at my next competition summer bash 5.

    I know it sux, but stick with the shirt the way it is.
    Wet it down every week, it will break in real nice for you.
    Alot of the inzer shirts have to be super tight to get
    a real nice pop out of the bottom. It just takes awhile
    to get it broken in.

    i just got off the phone with inzer. there going to add 1" wider on the sleeves so i should have size 59 arms. i think this should slove the sleeve problem i have from not getting the shirt seated properly. i'm hoping when i get shirt back the shirt is going to fit like a glove
