The Signature Gold wrist wraps by Titan have been my preferred choice of powerlifting wrist wrap for the last several years.
Overall I can’t say enough good things about the Titan Signature Gold wrist wraps. They’ve stood the test of thousands of bench and squat sets, added a ton of support, and added stability on my heaviest sets.
For those looking for a stiff wrist wrap, I can recommend Titan Signature Gold without reservation.
Plus: they are IPF & USAPL approved and USPA approved.
The Signature Gold wrist wraps give me a lot of support and confidence in the bench press and squat. These wrist wraps use an elastic thumb loop and can be cranked to provide a cast-like wrap that makes it nearly impossible to move the wrist. Even with this tight bond, I am able to bend my wrists as needed in order to get into position when benching or squatting.
While they have the reputation for being very stiff, and they are, I’ve found that are quite comfortable after a few weeks of breaking in. I do need to remove the wraps between sets, as I wrap pretty tightly and I’d begin to lose feeling in my hands otherwise.
I’ve used Titan’s Signature Gold wrist wraps for over two years before I felt they had lost enough elasticity to warrant being replaced. I typically bench 3 days per week and also wear these wrist wraps for squats, so that’s probably around 25 sets per week or 1,250 sets per year of me wrapping and unwrapping these around my wrists.
Over all of that usage, I’d never had a single issue with the build of these wrist wraps: the elastic loop has never broken, the wrap has never unraveled, and the Velcro has never come unglued. They’ve held together, period.
I use the 19″ version of these wrist wraps and my wrists have an average thickness. The main reason I went for 19″ is because they’re a few dollars cheaper than the 24″. I doubt most people would be absolutely fine with a 19″ or 24″ wrist wrap – with the 30″ or 36″ wraps being reserved for athletes putting up elite level weights.
For someone like me that usually benches in the 250-275 pound range (meet PR is 300 pounds) and squats in the 350-400 pound range (meet PR is 451 pounds) – the 19″ wraps have done just fine.
Still, I am interested in “upgrading” to 24″ when I buy my next pair to see how those differ.
That’s it. These are great wrist wraps if you’re looking for durable, stiff support in the bench press and squat.
