    I have both; I use the Convicts for heavy training and the Rehbands for everything else. I do not believe that cloth sleeves are allowed in most powerlifting federations so you may want to go with the rehband if you plan to wear them in a meet.

    I like the Elite Sleeves as they seem to last forever. For 100% raw type orgs though only neoprene is allowed.

    They are still listed as "out of stock" on the APT website.

    Put them on backwards and inside out. Then pull them up to the lower knee then roll them over to the top thigh. Only way i can get mine on.

    l get great support and even a little bounce from the Convicts. I like them better than my TKs, but as was said above, some feds don't allow them for their raw divisions.

    An alternative to the APT Double Ply Convict sleeves would be the Inzer XT sleeves.

    I have heard of a lot of problems with the sizing of the EliteFTS sleeves; it seems like they tried to copy APT and something went wrong along the way.
