I tried inzer, apex, karins, and katana.

I think the rages hurt my shoulders.
I like the phenoms but they stretch to fast.
Now I am using an apex and it's pretty cool but we'll see how it is in a month.

I went from ~550 to 600+ in two months just by switching from Ragex to Overkill. Rudy is the shit, just make sure you get your measurements right!

I like the overkill too.

My apex is ok too.


I don't like the rages anymore. I think the cut contributed to my shoulder injuries.

I had one in the late 80s early 90s, I got it after reading about Ken Lain’s Big Bench in 10 weeks...being new to it and not having a strong bench I managed a whopping 315!!! Then I switched to Titan years later and wow, the shirts have changed over the years.

I had a custom made shirt from Karin who lived near columbus...double denim, partial open back...lots of louie's guys used her shirts...I could not get 500 anywhere near touching...I then cut out the inner liner of the chest plate...I smoked 470 in the gym...I went for 500 the next week and the shirt exploded about 3/4 on the descent...I think I paid about $250 for that shirt...that shirt was very easy to put on take off...

I remember her, Westside loved her. My favorite shirt was a Ginny denim. She also made my squat suit

Though not a bench shirt, the Ginny denim/canvas squat suit was a pain in the ass! I think it was a Ginny, anyways one of our members had one at Tampa Barbell, let’s just say on squat day we tried not to make eye contact because we knew we would have to assist in taking it off of him after we would finish. That thing was something else but he loved it and we hated helping him out of it!!
I had a denim shirt as well and had zero luck in it, maybe 425 was it in it... but never really knew how to use the denim...

You are correct sir, they were a bitch to get out of. We would use pliers to pull them off

Blacks gym, haven’t heard them mentioned in a minute. Louie had the upmost respect for them. Isn’t John a pastor now?
