I'm gonna post my initial thoughts on the latest APT wrist wraps. I currently use Metal 60cm wraps (around 23.5 inches) and have been using them for almost a year. They have helped me set PR's from DAY one of using them! I finally got a set of Convicts from APT and just got them. I'm looking over them and tried to wear them. I will say the thumb loop is pretty weak and stretches out when you pull on it- Metal's loop is definately hands down much better. I have to mention that Alan from APT said they know of the issue and are working on fixing the thumb loop. from the initial cast- the casting of the wrap is seriously SOLID. I feel like i'm wearing athletic tape around my wrist. The Metal wraps give a bit when you bend your wrist. This wrap I can barely move my wrist when wrapped tightly. The cost of the APT wrap vs Metal is big (metal is about twice the price). Hope this helps you guys- i'll update after I bench with them!
