Got mine today too.  Theyre THICK.  2.5m here as well.  And, for the record, Velcro on a kneewrap is as useless at a onlyme on a bulking diet.

TRIED THEM TODAY AND LOVED THEM!!! I gave my iron z wraps away to a buddy of mine that has some shitty harbinger ones since I have another pair of convict pros on the way. A MUST HAVE AND A GREAT PRICE! I didn't expect to get much out of the bottom but it felt GREAT! I wrapped out on both knees while crossed over the patella and it felt as if someone was pushing my knees apart in the hole and it made a huge differnce coming out of the bottom. I felt like I could squat all day in these!

They were so damn tight I had to have help getting up out off the bench because I couldn't flex my knees unless i was under weight. HAHA Is that tight enough?

Soubds about right...You take them off between sets?  Your calves change color?

You wrap for sets of ten? Interesting, any reason behind that?

that's the way they should be, you should have to have two friends pull you off the bench when you're done wrapping but why on earth are you wrapping up tight for a set of 10?

I don't have good knees..never have. They hurt like hell when I squat and wraps not only keep the fluid pressure in there and keep them from popping but also give me peace of mind.. I'd rather focus on the lift than when what my knees are doing. I can't even sit indian style on teh floor without them locking up. Years of playing tennis with flat feet on hard courts I'm told did me in. Just sitting in this chair movign them around I can feel my right one pop'n. It's either wrap and squat or legpress...

I'd rather play than warm the bench.  Undecided  I've been squatting like this for awhile though with no problems.. what's with the "why do you wrap for a set of 10" ?!  Huh

I used to wrap for low weight sets but my knees were much worse than they are now and the wraps were light. Every now and again I need to wrap on a low weight set if I messed my knees up earlier in the week. Push press usually does me in.

I ended up borrowing a pair of ATP's Blue Mambas in the warm up room yesterday. I lent my metals to a new lifter that forgot his. Went nine for nine and so promptly negotiated the sale of said Mambas.

convict pros...

more rubber than the mambas and more rebound out of the bottom. WELL worth the money man.

They were the same color as my shirt. Never underestimate the power of looking good...

Actually in all seriousness I felt they gave less then the metals but they didnt push my knees forward so I was burying everything. Maybe when I am squating a lot more I will need my wraps to have maximum zing but for now easy going is fine by me.
