    Loose F6 shirt as first shirt?

    I found a used Titan F6 shirt, the IPF approved shirt for $40. The seams all looked good, I didnt see any runs, tears or any kind of damage. I put it on myself in about 2 minutes, which I understand shouldnt be possible with a single ply shirt. Ive never benched in a shirt before, I bench with an arch, touch to bottom of the sternum.

    My question is, will this be a good shirt to learn on for the price? Or would the money be better off going to another shirt? Thanks.

    I have used a Fury and am currently using an F6, both kinda big on me and really like the Titan shirts. My F6 is tighter then the Fury but I am still learning the shirt and can do it with these easily.

    I just started using a loose F6 couple months ago. I was getting 110 lbs out of it loose. I was ready to move up so I just bought a tight super katana. Got it in yesterday. Will probably try it out for the first time Friday. You can't go wrong with the F6, and that's a steal by the way. I'd jump on it.
