    Best Knee Wraps for Raw Squatting

    I've been searching around different forums and have been getting mixed reviews. I've been training for 10 years and competing in bodybuilding and raw powerlifting for 7 years, and for most of that time I trained and competed in Inzer's Z wraps until recently getting the Grippers, but I can't tell if the Grippers provide more rebound than the Z's but I know for sure they're a lot tighter than the Z's. I descend slow until hitting parallel then explode up as fast as I can, so do I need wraps that have more spring or stopping power? I've read that spring is for those that descend really fast or "divebomb" and try to bounce up, and I don't do that at all. But I train and compete raw, so I'm looking for the most rebound possible since I don't use any gear, so would the Z's spring be better for me, or would the Gripper's stopping power be better? Or is there another brand that offers better rebound for raw squatting & slow descent?

    Thanks!

    APT Strangulators are the best of both worlds. Way better than any Inzer/Titan/Elite FTS wrap that I've tried. They're relatively thick and don't have a lot of give, so you don't get as many wraps, but they're not really cast-like either. Great rebound, but they're thick enough to actually stop you from bottoming out completely.

    Thanks smart ass. The first thing I said was that I've been searching not only this forum but others as well and keep getting mixed reviews, nobody seems to agree on anything, and my case is unique because most raw squatters squat fast which is why rebound wraps are good for them but I don't squat fast, I squat slow, but don't use gear, so does that fall into the rebound category or stopping power category? Find someone else with the same question in the search box and then come talk to me.

    Sounds good to me bro, thanks I appreciate that. I figured I'd need something in between rebound and cast like, since I squat raw but squat slow, which is different than most. If I squatted fast I'd probably go with the wraps with better rebound, but I thought cast like wraps were better for equipped squatters and wasn't sure if those would do me any good since I'm raw. The Grippers seem to be more cast like and the Z's seem to have more rebound, I've done well with both but wasn't sure which one would be the best for my style and type of squatting, slow raw.
