    Quick Review- Overkill Knee & Wrist Wraps

    Been Using Overkill Knee wraps for 3 workouts now.

    All I can say is WOW they are FIRM. The material is like nothing Ive ever seen actually its quite thin but wraps harder than any other wrap i've used. The truth is that they are a bit firm for my liking and will be making the switch back to Rhino Wraps in the future.

    If you like your wraps unbelievably firm you should def check them out.

    Now for the wrist wraps.

    Same material and for the wrist they are the best ive used. I got a pair of 24in wraps (although they are actually only 19in long)(Will ask Rudy to correct that on my next order) and these wraps give me more support than my 36in Rhino wraps.

    Again if you like a super firm super tight wrap definatly check these out.

    They are also fairly priced at:

    $50 for 2.5m Knee Wraps
    $25 for 24in Wrist wraps w/ Thumb Loop & Velcro (Again they were cut short about 19in)

    Also if anyone is interested in trying the knee wraps I would be willing to sell mine for cheap as I do not want them to go to waste.

    Thanks Everyone

    Dan

    No the only APT wraps I have used were the old Strangulators which I liked a lot but than I could not get them again (Typical APT issues)

    the ok wraps are more "firm" than the apt 2x wraps imo--- it's weird--- the apt's are much thicker and that's what i wear--- my guy jimmy overkill has been training w/ me since the fall--- ive played with his knee wraps a few times and all i can say is damn-- they are super thin but have almost no give-- they are absolutely wicked--- they are easier to wrap than the apt's, but i feel the apt's are more comfortable (that could be because im used to them though). concerning carry-over they are both very supportive and give good pop out of the hole

    I've been using both the knee and wrist wraps as well....

    Coming from 3 years of using TP5000s I feel like the overkill wraps are a step up. Super stiff, but easy to wrap tight. Good for anyone who likes a cast-type wrap.

    I can see how someone who prefers a softer wrap wouldn't like them, but they are money for me.

    In the past ive used

    Apt strangulators
    Rhino Wraps
    Old inzer z wraps

    The Overkill wraps are nothing like any of them. As stated aboved they are Very thin and when wraps tight off almost no give what so ever. Def something that will take some getting used too.
