I like Frabo's sleeves. There is also a private little company called Margaret Rose (I think) that puts out some nice equipment. I bought a couple of sleeves from them a few years ago, and they are holding up great. They are located somewhere in north US. I will have to see if I can find their info again.

Post your question up on the LW board.

I know we bought some new stuff over this past year but I am not too well versed in terms of the equipment. I know we got some stuff from Hard Dog Requisites and Universal K9. I remember the covers from Hard Dog, we had problems with. Haven't heard anything bad about the stuff we got from Universal though. For the record, Hard Dog was very quick to rectify the problem we had. They really seemed to want to make us happy. If I had more input I would offer it but my trainer would be the better one to ask..I am just the money person..lol. Are you taking bites at the club now?

I have used Frabo, Ebinger, Schweikert (mostly), Gapay and one other that I liked, but can't recall what it was right now. By far Schweikert has been my choice until a few years ago. Now I like that other brand that I can't remember.

The biggest thing for me is how it feels... I don't buy a sleeve unless I try it on, I want the orientation of the grip to fit naturally with the angle of the bite bar. I like my fist to rotated slightly forward giving me increased strength.

Then it is the cost of the covers... I don't like sleeves that require a special size for propper fit!

it is the Schweikert and the Apports i was actually wondering about as i have never had the opportunity to use either.
as i said up there :laughing3: i am looking at more european stuff cuz i can get a good deal on it. i will probably recover all the sleeves i have but was thinking i would like one new intermediate and maybe a new puppy

:lol: Ya, when you get them from Germany.... If you ever had to get them here.... $$$$ OUCH! That's why I have looked for local alternatives.
