    I have a meet August 28th, my first actually. I had ordered a different shirt from another company and had to exchange it for a different size, (totally my fault). There was no way I was going to have time to break it in. I bought the F8, 2 ply, still thinking I wouldn’t get there. Out of the box I put 565 to 2 boards!! I was hesitant previously with that kind of weight, but this thing is so easy to control if the fit’s right! My raw is 350ish, I’ll be opening with 500 and finishing at least 605!!! Excellent piece of equipment and amazing service!! See you folks in the 800’s!! 😉

    Size 43 was my recommended sizing. Kevin advised a 51 or 53. Bought the 53. First time in it hit 545lb touch. 2nd time in it 600lb touch. Definitely more to come. In my experience by a size or 2 bigger than your measurements. You will have a lot of difficulty getting your hands out to grab the bar if you buy too small.

    This thing is amazing!

    At 61, I wanted to give this shirt a try. Rob Forell, Kevin Pittman and Jimmy Kolb were all very supportive for me to go down this new path. I fell in love with the shirt. The second training day with it I benched 520 and there is plenty more. More importantly, my shoulders feel better and my raw strength is going up. Thank you guys.

    I got my F8 2ply shirt and it is AWESOME! This was my very first shirt. At 50, I have some wear and tear on my shoulders and the support it offers is unreal. I have a 53 but probably will be ordering a 51 or 50 in the very near future. Anderson is great to work with as well. Customer service is their #1 priority.
