Default knee wraps - recommended brands?

What brand of knee wraps do you recommend?

is it worth it to start with an entry level brand?
and then upgrade it there is a benefit from using them?

dose the quality varie a lot from brand to brand.

Thanks in advance
Paul

Depends on the type of wrap you want. Typically new people to wraps like a rebound type wrap instead of casting. They're typically softer and not as hard to get used to. Powerbelly Gear makes a Misdemeanor wrap that a lot of my newer lifters use and have had great success with. Report back on what you go with because a lot of companies have good entry level wraps. Good luck!

I use Titan THPs. They are an in between wrap, not as hardcore as some but not as soft as some. Most companies make different wraps that cover all the bases. Sometimes right in the description it'll tell you how they think the wraps compare, and sometimes you need to take you're time and do lots of review reading before you'll have a good idea of what each wrap will do for you.

I'll tell you this- don't go with a heavy hardcore cast like wrap at first, even if you're really serious about getting all you can out of them. Hardcore wraps are not just more uncomfortable, they are also much harder to actually wrap. You'll need multiple helpers to stretch them properly and get them on. With my THPs I can wrap them myself, but I can't get them as tight as they could go. I have a pair of training wraps from roque that I can actually max out myself, stretching them as far as they can go. If you don't have people to help you fully stretch a wrap while you put it on then you won't get all you can out of it.

I've tried tons of wraps. One of my favorite Wraps..

I've used these here for over 2yrs and they are still holding up. These were great right off the bat too.

I've also been using these lately. Great in between wrap. These need a few uses before breaking in.

When I want a Cast like Wrap I'll run these.

After much experimentation, I am sticking with what I started with, Crain Genesis power wraps. Easy to wrap, do not need to be extremely tight to be effective, very effective, and red is my favorite color!

I bought both wraps BTB recommended, the anderson wraps and the Crain wraps. I suspect the Crain ones are actually better though. You can really stretch and crank them down. Anderson ones are alot stiffer, I'm not experienced enough to know why the stiffer might be better. Could someone aware me?

I feel the stiffer the wrap the more support through the ROM you will have and more assistance. The stretchier allows more unrestricted ROM and yields less support. Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for all the comments guys, Much appreciated.

I picked up RBX as an entry level, Ill try these out for a few weeks and invest in something better

With no frame of reference - these feel like rebounds, they are stiff enough to support, but I get a nice little bounce out of the hole, used them twice so far, Ill reply here after another session or two.
