    These are the only type of straps I have heard coming out. I am not a fan of the "hook" style ones...

    Bros at $10.95 you should pick up about 10 pairs, then get on the new Universal site and get the same number of torrent samples. Then pass out the wealth at Chirstmas time for a garunteed great gift (that or your family will think you're crazy)

    Used mine for the first time last night. Finally was able to go multiple sets for 205 on SLDLs without my forearms giving out. I put them on after my 3rd set, and was able to finish another that I wouldn't have been able to without the straps! They are quite nice, and my first pair right in time. My last week's deadlifts were cut short due to my forearms giving out too early. Thank you.

    Thanks for the feedback. They are definitely great for getting those last few reps out.
