Knee Wraps

I'm looking to get a pair of knee wraps but was wondering if there is much difference in quality between these two items. Thanks

    NSC have never heard of so I will assume they are no use as no-one I know uses them.

    APT are good but can be a bit severe and heve been likened to a light plaster cast on the leg, some love them but I wouldn't use them for the above reason.

    Titan THP or Inzer Ironwraps suit me down to the ground, and they are supposed to be tight

    As far as I know, forgiveness is for the benefit of the person doing the forgiving, not the one being forgiven

    Inzer are what you want and most competitive powerlifters use them!

    ment to get some extra wraps around the knee compared with titaniums and thp, not used them though.

    knee wraps seem much of a much ness to me. pick a good brand, metal, apt, titan or inzer and unless your used to using wraps youd never know a difference.

    titan wrist wraps are pretty tight, the titan material feels more solid than the THP material

    What do you guys use them for?

    Keep knees warm?
    Prevent injury?
    Add some weight onto your squat?

    Body Weight - 83kg 
    Bench - 145kg
    Squat - 190kg
    Clean & Jerk - 129kg
    Snatch - 98kg

    Knee sleeves would be adequate for warmth and wraps for increasing poundage.

    The main reason is to add weight on your squat, although some people do say they feel they protect the knees, I still feel that if they didn't add a significant weight to the squat then people would use knee sleeves or at best very light wraps.

    I think most powerlifters would be disappointed if they couldn't get 10% or more out of good, tightly wrapped knees.

    Ok thanks.

    Question. So say 10kg to your squat, will this be any more beneficial than squatting without them and dropping 10kg? If not and it's not a comp what is the point... Do they for example stengthen up your core more than a squat without them as you are using a heavier weight? Thoughts?

    Body Weight - 83kg 
    Bench - 145kg
    Squat - 190kg
    Clean & Jerk - 129kg
    Snatch - 98kg

    The main reason is for competition tbh mate. Wouldn't use them unless I was competing or preparing for competition.

    Having said that, if you are consistently handling more with wraps than you have used before (unequipped) then it does have a good psychological effect: i.e. you're not scared of big weight.

    I've also found that when I was using wraps on most squat workouts, my unequpped squat went up as well: so you're still getting stronger!

    Wouldn't advise them though unless you are squatting a decent weight (e.g. I first used them when I had squatted 190kg)

    I wouldn't say that wraps help prevent knee injury.

    I'd almost go the opposite - my knees hurt from using wraps. My knee's feel better not using any wraps no matter what weight I'm squatting.
