    A few of us were talking about these in another thread and I couldn't find it so...


    My 36" Convicts just came in the mail today and they are a great pair of wraps. They blow my Inzer and Titans out of the water. I've never used Metal wraps so I can't compare but they are less then $15 as opposed to $35+ for the Metal Blacks.

    They are stiff out of the package but they do stretch and "cast" the wrist quite well. They fell durable but if they are like my other APT wrist wraps they should hold up quite well. I haven't benched with them on yet but when I do I'll update further.

    nice! i was interested in hearing your feedback. did you get the free knee or elbow sleeves too?

    I have the metal ones and played with the inzers. The inzer's "fabric" falls apart while the metal wraps do not.

    how are they in terms of stretch compared to inzer?

    No I didn't get any sleeves, I need to though.

    They don't stretch as much as the Inzers but once you get them wrapped around your wrist the seem to squeeze more and feel a lot stiffer.

    just to be clear they are under 15 if you buy the smallest size... buying the 36 you need to add 7.95

    I think they got shipped out last thursday and they came in tuesday..


    didn't notice that...but they are still cheaper then the Metals but Inzer's are $17 for 36"...although I think they are worth the few extra dollars over the Inzers...

    I just wanted to point out that I did get my set for free because I was wearing APT knee wraps at my last meet and my buddy emailed them a picture. I would gladly pay for them though because they are great wraps.


    I suggest everyone hold off on buying a pair until I wear them with some weight in my hands so I can make sure they are as good as they feel. I'd hate for anyone to spend money on something based on my suggestion if they turn out to be crap.

    very true, but I was paying for their shit before I was sponsored because I like their products.

    Also, that is why I said for everyone who was thinking of ordering some to hold off until I have some weight in my hands. I wouldn't use and support a product that was trash especially considering the health and longevity of my wrists are at stake.

    I was thinking about getting some straps because of some occasional wrist issues. How do these size? I know its by length but which is the right size for me?

    straps and wraps are a different animal...

    wraps=wrist stability
    straps=hold onto a bar or something because your grip is weak.


    I use 20" wraps for everything up to 405 on bench and then after that I'll use 36" wraps. If my wrist are beat up I'll put the 36" wraps on a little earlier but for the majority of the pressing I do I'll just wear a pair of 20" wraps.
