Simple question regarding ankle bands
« on: December 30, 2018, 05:27:54 PM »
Why doesn't a company make ankle bands that fit 220/285 pound wrestlers?!?!?! I just don't get it. It doesn't seem too complicated.

Apparently they do.  College never has a problem with it.
Several are on "ignore".   I won't argue with the ignorant and disrespectful..

These are 13".  I would expect that to fit most heavyweights; I'm a pretty big guy, and my ankles are a little under 11".  I'm sure there are wrestlers they wouldn't fit; in a pinch, you could double up a pair.

What I'd like to know is:  why must they make flipping discs that roll?  Circles suck, and octogons still travel farther than they should.  They should be triangles, with the corners rounded so as not to dig into your butt.

Ralphie, you'll flip your eye out.

Thank you, I will have to measure mine because the ones I have look like that (definitely not CK). Thanks again.

I received them, they are the same size as my others....they have to make 15" - 16" ankle band somewhere.
