Dose anyone have to hand regs for knee sleeve specs for now allowed in GBPF duing unequipped comps?

I did have a PDF of the IPF Classic rules but cannot find it atm.

I know it was 7mm max thickness but cannot remember if any mention was made of material etc. Is there a list of approved definitive sleeves? I seem to recall there was one?

from the above document

Commercial knee sleeves as designed for medical/surgical or sports use and
constructed of neoprene (no other form of rubber or similar material is acceptable)
with an optional covering of cotton, polyester or medical crepe may be worn.
Alternatively an elasticised traditional kneecap supporter may be worn. A
combination of the two is forbidden.
(a) Knee sleeves must be slip on and not contain any form of tightening e.g.
straps/draw strings/velcro tabs and the likes.
(b) Maximum length 30 cms maximum thickness 7 mms.
(c) Must not extend more than 15 cms above or 15 cms below the centre of the
knee joint.
(d) Shall not be in contact with socks or lifting suit.

Before buying any wait until the Titan ones are available in the UK they are far superior to anything iv seen pullam had a set to show people and they looked mint there already available on lifting large site at the moment I use the lp blue ones that are realy thin

Also I don't know if buzz knows this but one of his knee sleeves you can use I'm not sure which ones but people were using them at the commonwealth and it was okay

So whats the definition of a traditional elasticated kneecap supporter?

Single ply elasticated sleeve?

7mm Rehbands are far better than the Titan ones imo, but as with a lot of things just down to personal preference.

I'm guessing it was our neoprene ones that were being used, but not certain. Hercules and Thor ones shouldn't be allowed. Hoping to have another bash at getting our own 7mm neoprene ones made, but Rehband ones are awesome, and selling fast.
