Single Ply Bench Shirt Recommendations?

I’m wondering if there is a shirt that has the same feel as a single ply Phenom without it cutting my armpits to shreds…any advice or experience? I like the groove and stretch at the bottom.

I’ve used the F6 and currently a Super Katana. The Katana for me is very tough to master. Seems I need to be perfect with it each attempt or it ain’t gonna go.

Anyone used in new Inzer Bolt yet?

I have lifted in a shirt a grand total of 1 time. I do lift with some geared lifters though. To me your issue (armpits being cut up) might best be solved with tailoring and not a new shirt (since you like the shirt aside from the armpit issue).

Metal Single Ply M is probably hands down the more forgiving but useful singly ply shirt.

The katana ( what I currently use ) is a great shirt but you are correct it is highly technical.

Look at slide 4 and 5. 4 was sloppy, luckily to a 2 board it was doable, slide 5 much more technically sound.

That said you shouldn’t be ate up in the armpits. The shirt shouldn’t be pulled so high that it’s in your pits.

I don’t know anyone that has used the inzer bolt, but if you go look at top 20 singly ply, they are all basically in the same gear.

Can this be used in competition still? I thought most feds banned them.

Cover the logo works for a lot of the feds. I still compete with a metal ace for deadlifts ( looking to replace it )

Even if it’s not, it’s still a great learning shirt.

If I remember you had the same problem with the Phenom tearing you up.

Might be trying out an Evil Twin soon!

Thought about buying the M shirt when EliteFTS had em on sale for $95. Of course that was a while ago.

pretty sure you can find them on the internet from metal or even just random people selling them lol

Well I found a shirt. Barely used Evil Twin. Used it this past Saturday for the first time. Apparently I really like the low cut collar shirts. This thing is awesome. Best shirt I’ve ever used. The sleeves really crank down on my arms. The groove works perfect for me.

I hit 500 touch in the Super Katana this last training cycle. Definitely more in the tank.
