    I'd get the medium length (can't remember the exact size) if you are going with the Inzers.

    I've never seen anyone use wrist straps while squatting, these would affect your grip (less grip more wrist support). How's your grip strength? Don't know if you have them but can you crush a 2 or 3 captin of crush?http://www6.mailordercentral.com/ironmind/
    How hard do you grip the bar? I grip the bar as tight as i can to ensure that it doesnt move while I squat.

    Sometimes when using sub-maximal weight I drape my hands near the outer edges of the bar (8ft bar). I'm not actually gripping the bar, my hands are over the bar resting, I only do this on realtively light weight. Hope that helps...

    Lot's of PL'ers use wrist straps. My grip strength is pretty good. Can hold 100Db's for about 35 secs. I can DL 365 for 2 sets of 6 (no straps, only chalk). I can see where you might think it's grip strength but it's wrist strength. Keeping your wrists straight has nothing to do with grip strength. Keep your palm closed, that's grip strength.

    I think he confused straps and wraps.
