    I have the reactive, the original and the maddog slingshot. The difference between them is the thickness of the material (which also affects how pliable/comfortable it is) which, in turn, dictates how much extra it will help you lift.

    Progress Pic

    Recorded my last set of front squats but wasn't happy with how it turned out. Realised I'm overdue for a progress pic so captured a screenshot as I was walking out of the cage. Poor angle and lighting I know but should give some indication of where I'm at after my inadvertant cut.
