    Knee Sleeves

    I'm looking at picking up some sleeves I can wear in training as well as raw competition.

    Supposedly people get a little bit out of them. I have read about this here before but can't find a specific topic on it.

    Anderson powerlifting has some what appear to be new sbd sleeves, as well as their what appear to be shorter older version. Both are 7 mm thickness.

    Rehband makes a nice pair but are 5 mm thickness.

    I always am price conscience, andersons are 60 and 90 a pair, and rehbands are about 40 each.

    But the question is, is there anything better about the sbd or rehbands over the basic anderson ones? And will I have any benefit to my squat using the more expensive option? Since we are talking 30 dollars difference to use whatever gives a bigger advantage obviously 30 bucks doesn't mean much, but is longer simply better? or is 7 mm better than 5 mm? I just don't know what translates into "better." I could understand comfort and feel as well as performance would be nice, but without owning all how would you know this. So I am open to opinions, preferably unbiased but understand some are sponsored here. thanks

    Check out Tommy Kono sleeves... I used to use those regularly. I would not expect to get anything out of them other than keeping your knees warm and slightly compressed.

    The only knee sleeve that you'll possibly get any carry over from are the EFS Super Heavy knee sleeves. The Rehbands and Titan sleeves are more for comfort. I haven't tried the new SBD sleeves that Ken sells. But from what I've heard, they are just like Rehbands and Titan, just longer.

    Thanks for the input guys, i figured the SBD were just the same but longer. I ended up getting the older rehbands, don't feel like any carryover but my knees stay extremely hot, not sure if it is a bad thing but it's hard to feel when my knee is acting up with them on, but i feel it later.
