Alan, some feedback for you. 1) I put my belt on by using a method I picked up off a Ed Coan video. I use the upright of the power racks or in my basement I use a jack post pole to pull the belt as tight as I can get it. 2) I am one of those lifters that has to roll my own wraps and wrap my own legs. I like my wraps rolled very snug but not "step on tight" Ok with that said I decided to try the Black Reaper. My workout was heavy triples. The short version is "WOW nice wrap". First of all I rolled the wraps with the APT logo in so when I wrapped my knees the logo was out and the all black wrap just had a tough look to it. Now the meat and potato's As I started wrapping my knees I felt the wraps stretch pretty easy compared to the more radical "convict wrap". So before I lifted I was thinking "just another training wrap". NOT! Once under the bar these wraps preformed! On my second set of triples I even paused my 3rd rep at the bottom and still shot out of the hole. (no suit just wraps and a belt). And.. when I use a training wrap there is almost never any urgency to get them off after the set. When I finished these heavy sets with the Black Reaper I needed to get both wraps off and my belt lose at the same time. You know the feeling. I liked the way I could stretch these wraps myself and still get top performance out of the wrap. I could defiantly use these as a contest wrap. My trials will continue but since I dont have or trust a trainer to wrap my knees for me I think Ive reached the Extreme end of the wraps I can effectively use wrapping my own knees with the Convict wrap.
