    What wraps are you heavy raw benchers using?

    I would like to stay in the $20 - $25 range. I've heard a lot about the KLA wraps, was debating between KLA 2000 24" or the THP 24".

    For reference I'm currently using some EFS 60 cm "Normal" wraps, but they are pretty warn out. I like the length so I figured I'd stick with 24".

    I've never really used any of the heavier cast-like wraps so I'm not sure which I'd prefer.

    Even though you bench more then me, I'll still tell you what I like!!! lol

    I'm a big fan of the KLA2000 and KLA3000. At the moment I'm benching with 24" KLA3000. They will give you more of a cast like feeling which is why I'm using those over the KLA2000. So if you're not interested in that, then I'd go with the KLA2000.

    What's the difference between the 2000, 3000, and 4000? Stiffer/more cast-like as the number gets higher?

    Exactly! I've never tried the 4000 because the 3000 is stiff enough. It all depends on how you like your wrap. With the 2000, you can still crank them to get that tight feeling.

    I've worn the Rhino 36" wraps for several years now. Really good wraps.

    I think the company is Iron Rebel now.

    You guys think 36" wraps would be too much for stuff like OHP and back squats? Almost considering getting a pair of both 24" and 36".

    IMO, I think 36" wraps are good for OHP and 24" are better for squats.
