    I used to have the plain cotton off-white ones they were fine, now sports authority by me doesnt have them, so i bought these black harbinger ones that were stiff as a rock and fucking killed my forearms so i threw them at some nagger at the gym. now i want new ones, any suggestions? i only use them for backdays and sometimes for strapping cumhogs to my bed.

    neo recommended the ironmind basic blue ones and they've worked great for me so far... they're like $6.99 + ~$5 shipping dude.

    cheap as fuck and they ship almost immediately

    Ironmind "strong enough" straps. They're cheap and work far better than any other ones I've tried. I have some APT's that I gave away. I love APT for wrist wraps but IMO their straps aren't even close to as good as iron mind. Any of the guys that I train with taht have used my ironmind straps end up buying a pair and shitcanning whatever they were using.

    The only downside to APT straps is they are a bit on the long side but that is easily fixed. I'd rather pay for a pair of straps that is too long and I can trim them then get a pair that is short.

    I once spent an entire 1 hour 15 minute Freshman Composition class going over why it's "I couldn't care less," and not "I could care less."

    My education monies hard at work. :bowdown:

    I didn't like the length or the width on mine. Just too fucking wide for me, I don't have 15" wrists like all you powerlifting cumfunnels

    if you are just doing rows and shit with them, or not deadlifting over 700+ with them, then APT is fine.

    if you are doing heavy shit, like 800+ stuff, then go with ironmind straps. you will notice almost no SM uses APT during comps because they have a poor reputation for snapping. ive even seen them snap on 500lb deadlifts.

    now since some folks here are sponsored by APT they will all say differently but thems the facts.
