Reviews for Cobra Grips PRO Weight Lifting Gloves Heavy Duty Straps Alternative Power Lifting Hooks for Deadlifts Adjustable Neoprene Padded Wrist Support Bodybuilding
People say Grip Power Pads is really similar to Versa Gripps.
Great product... will definitely purchase again!
Purchased after reading reviews comparing the difference between Pro Cobra Grips and Pro Versa Gripps. I was very pleased to put them to the test and feel very comfortable during my back workouts and deadlifts. I was able to pull 585lbs on deadlift and didn't have any issues with the straps being too tight or velcro wanting to pull apart. That's been an issue with other straps in the past. Great product overall, especially for the quality and price.
Give Cobra Grips a chance
I have been using traditional lifting straps, which we all know are a massive, time consuming pain in the butt to work with, especially when you're fatigued & your coordination is already compromised. But, there are times that straps are an essential piece of equipment & the canvas straps I was using worked ok overall. The design put a lot of pressure on my wrists and I sometimes had some bruises but for the price, I couldn't really complain. My coach recently suggested I try Versa Gripps so I came to Amazon to check the recent reviews. They looked like a good product but holy smokes, the price! The Cobra Grips popped up in the suggestions so I decided to check them out. After going back & forth, comparing the products, reading the questions/answers, and reading a ton of recent reviews, I was honestly stumped so I took the plunge with Cobra Grips. I figured if worst came to worst, I could always pass them on to someone else and buy the Versa Gripps. When the Cobra Grips arrived, I immediately liked the look & feel. The grip pad is soft, flexible, and sueded on both sides. The padding inside the wrist collar is just right - not too thick or thin, the strap slides easily through the D ring, and the velcro is really strong with decent size loops. The stitching on the leather is secure as is the stitching that attaches the padding & velcro. When the curved part of the pad sits on the bottom part of my palm (near my wrist) the grip hits my middle knuckles. I used the grips for... Read More
Fiancé Loves Them- Would Buy Again
I bought a pair of Cobra Grips PRO for my fiancé and he loves them! They grip really nicely so he’s able to hit his heavier lifts without worrying about his hands slipping. The fit is just right, and they’re very comparable to other, more expensive brands like Versa Gripps. He’s had them for over a few months now and they’re still holding up great. All in all, great purchase and would buy again!
I am replacing my Versa Gripps with these. I debated on trying these or getting another pair of Versa Gripps. I saw several reviews and there are a lot of positive reviews for this brand. I am happy with them so far. The wrist straps are a little stiff but I think the material will relax over time with use. Quality feels pretty good in the straps and so far I am pleased with them.
I love these lifting straps/grips more than I thought I would. I've used standard lifting straps for a while now and never thought to change it up until they ripped and I started looking for a replacement pair. I gave the Versa Gripps a good look after trying out my friend's pair but I saw these Cobra Grips and the price was right and the reviews looked good. If they were anything close to Versa Gripps I would be happy. So far I've had a couple training sessions in them and they are just as good if not better. They are surprisingly heavy duty and the grip is unbelievable compared to standard straps. I feel like my arms are glued to the bar with these on. The velcro wrist closure is also very comfortably padded and the range of adjustability seems as though it would fit the majority of wrists out there. I kept them on throughout sets without them bothering me very much (I'm the type that constantly takes off/on wrist wraps). I've also been dealing with some tennis elbow issues and pull days would often cause flare ups (if only I wasn't to stubborn to properly rest). With these grips I wasn't nagged by the elbow one bit since they were able to completely take my grip out of certain movements. I was able to add a couple reps to my rows and weighted pull ups without even trying. And the ease of use alone makes this product worth it. Straps take a little bit to setup perfectly, especially if you are using them on max weight days, but these grips have just enough material to wrap ... Read More
Better than the competitors!
I’m a male with 5.5” wrist, yes you read that right. First I bought fit Versa gripps, but I returned them and got fit cobra grips. Versa gripps burned and hurt my wrist terribly, but cobras are super comfortable, the wrist support on Versa is so horrible that I could lift the same with a bare grip, however cobra gripps all I gotta say I wow, I can shrug hundreds of pounds all day, I can’t believe how comfortable they are but also I can’t believe how well they work. I paid $38, and the versa’s were $65. Cobras are also better quality with more rubber area, guys I literally thought I was doomed with lifting heavy as I didn’t like wrist wraps and all the other gloves and hook grips didn’t do Jack. Thank you cobra for allowing my 5 inch wrist to lift as much weight as 7 inch wrist can. Guys I don’t ever leave reviews for products, trust me these grips are the best you can buy.
Love my Cobra Grips PRO!!!!
This is the 3rd set of these I have purchased now. I still have the old ones that I leave in my luggage for when I travel so I don't forget them. Hate to work out without them now. I used to use Versa Gripps but like these much better. Thanks for a great product.
These grips are amazing! They pretty much make lifting straps obsolete. The material feels nice and it feels comfortable around my wrist. Even after sweating in these, I never felt a lack of grip. I’m glad I went with these over the expensive Versa Gripps.
Great for most pull workouts
Have used Versa Gripps, Death Grips, and Ironmind and Gymreaper straps for comparison. I think I'd prefer Versa Gripps vs Cobra Grips. Big reason has to do with the rubber/leather portion your hands grip. The space the Cobra Grips leave isn't ideal for much heavier weight, such as for barbell deadlifts. I feel like I end up with less slack pulled amd holding rubber portion with mostly fingers vs whole hand. I wish you could pull straps more. To tighten them better. Not a fan of the foam portion around wrist. Comfort was prioritized over a tighter grip on wrist, which you'd get from nylon straps. All said. I think they are fine. A more economical option to Versa Gripps if money is an issue. Death grips quality is horrible compared to others.
After an intense back session using Versa on my right hand and Cobra Grips on my left hand I've come to the conclusion that the
EDIT: Minus one star down to 4/5 for functionality of the strap. The way the strap is designed makes the top wing of the neoprene cushion fold back on its-self when cinching the strap down tight. Means typically I have to fiddle with the strap for a minute every time I put on the grips before I can get to my workout, kind of annoying and could be fixed in a design change. I own 3 pair of Versa Gripps and have purchased two pair for the GF. After an intense back session using Versa on my right hand and Cobra Grips on my left hand I've come to the conclusion that the Cobra Grips are much more comfortable on my wrists when pulling heavy and perform comparably to the Versa Gripps in every other aspect. The $20 price difference and the fact I can have them here in 2 days with prime makes the Cobra Grips a sure bet for my future purchases. I'll update the review as necessary if the longevity of the product comes into question. Suggestions for the manufacturer: In future revisions I would suggest installing the wiry side of the Velcro on the loose end of the strap and the soft side of the Velcro in the middle. Currently, if the strap does not extend to the end of the Velcro then the wiry Velcro not covered by the strap can catch on things (shirt, shorts, ect.). If reversed that would no longer be a problem.
