    Knee wraps with the best REBOUND??

    Hi,

    Please let me know what knee wraps you have found to have great rebound/pop?

    I do not care much about stopping power.

    At the moment I'm leaning towards APT ZRV Pros.

    Thank you very much!

    Most IPF/USAPL guys who divebomb in gear wear Inzer Z's or the Titans. the ZRVs look pretty similar

    The Elite All black super heavy wraps are my favorite at the moment. I was using strangulaters until these came out. Very simalar but less skin tearing.

    Strangulators are the best I have found so far. Didn't know Elite has heavier "all blacks"
    that Scott mentions, will have to try those.

    Do they give more rebound than the convicts? I can get them in Aus saving on shipping.

    Thanks Gregg.

    A lot of people are using those new Titan ones, those are supposed to be real springy

    I like the ZRV wraps but I hate knee wraps. They're like wearing nothing

    ZRVs are junk IMO. Not enough rubber for any rebound.

    Convicts are great, as far as i know the EFS wraps are the same as some of the APT ones, just re-badged. E.g. EFS Heavy wrap (black and white stripe) = APT convicts

    Convicts are the s&it but when applied properly, I feel they're more of a cast wrap. I see the word rebound and I assumed more flexible wrap. The metal all blacks are a decent mix, but are a bit pricey. The Blue mamba wraps are a decent mix as well.

    Inzer Z's worked well for me. was well as the Titan Titanium's(black /w blue stripes) although I think they've been discontinued?

    I have used the same knee wraps for the past year and a half and still get as much rebound out of them now as i did when i first got them. I have not tried out any of the newer knee wraps that are 3 meters long or that are much thicker, in a way i think that's just a little too much, but for me, I use the new titan titanium knee wraps from titan. They are 2.5 meters long but you can get them in 2.0 if you like, they are black with blue, red and yellow strips on them. Check out my videos on youtube just type in my name "Eric Lilliebridge" and you can see my progression up to an 835 raw squat with these knee wraps on for every workout.

    The red black and blue wraps from Titan are THP wraps I thought.

    Correct. They are still making titaniums as well though - they have just introduced a grey stripe into them so the THP are black/red/blue/yellow and the titaniums are black/blue/grey

    My bad i get the names of the two mixed up because the first pair i had were the black with 3 blue stripes and i believe those were called the titanium knee wraps, but yes the wraps that are black with red yellow and blue are the ones that i use, the THP wraps 2.5 meters.

    Thanks guys!!

    EliteFTSs shipping to Aus is too much for a pair of wraps............I am going to choose between the Titans and the apt blue mambas as I think they will suit me well.

    I appreciate the help.
