I'm thinking about buying a pair of "Titan Support Systems High Perfrmnce Wrist Wrap 24""
Anyone use these? What has been your experience?

they will surely work. are they your first pair?
you might head over to APT and take a look at all of theirs, they have many stifnesses to choose from.
As Lones said, those will do the trick for your first pair. However in moving forward you may want to look at APT's stuff. Ive had Titan, Inzer, Metal All Blacks, Several APT iterations, and have settled on the Convict Pro's they are without a doubt my favorite, but hey everyones tastes are different.
Yea these will be my first pair. I'm not into competing...yet. I just need something to save my wrists when I do olympic lifts.
My only concern with APT is shipping to Canada, I'm waiting to hear back from them in regards with that. I can get a pair of Titan wraps for ~$22 shipped on ebay. The only spot I've seen Inzer wraps for sale in Canada online would cost me $36 shipped, which IMO is too much for a pair of wrist wraps.
to me its a matter of personal choice. inzer titan it really doesn't matter to me. however i do find the titan wraps keeps it stiffness longer than inzer.
^ yea, I've been reading around a fair bit now, and it really just comes down to person preference from what I've been reading and understand.
I'm not at a level (IMO) where I could notice any significant difference. I have a 20% off coupon for APT, but it still works out to over $30 shipped.
If anyone knows of a Canadian retailer online, I'm all ears.
Trust me, its much more than personal preference. The APT wraps are second to none. I've used all of the above mentioned wraps (and no I'm not sponsored by APT) but the APT's are waaay better in stiffness and durability than either Inzer or Titan wraps
I have a pair of APT wraps but i havnt used them yet.
I have used them all as well--Titan, Inzer, Metal, and APT. I prefer the APT Convict as well. Great wrap.
I have to agree with the Convicts being great. I've used the Inzers and the Titan and they are both good, but the APT's are stiffer and superior. I just bought a new pair a couple months ago and my only regret is getting the 20" rather than 24".

Straightening out pipe cleaners for over 20 years.
I have the 24" APT Black Reapers and they are awesome. The Convicts are almost too much support for now lol.
Currently: 6'3", 220#, 295/235/430
Goals (for now): 230#, 355/260/445
Some time in the distant future: 275#, 750/500/750
So it looks like APT are the way to go.
Now, for length and model type: I'll be using them for Olympic lifting and when I bench heavy (275+). What does a stiffer, longer wrap give me over say, a 12" not so stiff wrap? Any disadvantages to going longer and stiffer?
I'm either going to go with the ZRV Pro's or the Blood Stripes in 24". Any last thoughts on that guys? I'm leaning towards the ZRV's
Whoa...there's a huge difference in the Blood Stripe and ZRV wraps. I am sponsored by APT and have used almost every single wrap they make.
My suggestion for your situation...first go with a 24" wrap (not too much but enough length to get around your wrist several times). Now, the level of support...stay away from Convicts, Strangulators, Hybrids, and definitely The Wrap. These are simply too much wrap for olympic use and a 275 bench. ZRV or the red/white/blue are your best bet, followed by the Black Reapers or Blue Power. I do most of my mid-range training in the ZRV or Reapers.
yeah, i think you'll like the ZRV material. its pretty soft, but you can jack them down and get some great support out of em. i have ZRV knee wraps.
which APT wrap is best for squatting? I have the convict/strangulator pair but I haven't used them yet. I also have this style for my wrist wraps and I like them alot, but I think I might want something stronger.
Black Reapers - love them
