Titan Katana Bench Shirt
Product Review & Testimonials
by Violent Hero Powerlifting Staff
If you are looking for superior performance from a single ply shirt then the Titan Katana Bench Shirt may not be the place to start if you are a beginner, but the titan katana is definitely the place to end up. The torque sleeve design essentially pre-twists the sleeves to be tight and loaded from the top. Unlike other shirts in which much of the load is spread over the chest plate, the Titan Katana Bench Shirt loads very heavily in the arms.
This makes it ideal to use over a longer period of time because as the chest plate begins to stretch out the arms will continue to load correctly. Unlike other single ply shirts which may be more springy and forgiving, the Titan Katana Bench Shirt is better at locking up and stopping the weight, requiring a more patient decent.
It’s easier to fall off the bubble in a Titan Katana and dump because it locks up so hard…but…if you can hang in there and be patient the NXG plus material gives incredible rebound off the chest. Few lifters use a 2 ply Titan Katana Bench Shirt because it’s nearly impossible to touch with even heavy weights, so the performance benefits fall off. Overall, the Titan Katana Bench Shirt is an amazing shirt with a stiff learning curve, but well worth the effort in single ply.

“I decided to use the Titan Katana Bench Shirt after using some other shirts for a while, and what a difference. It was a little harder to touch but just blew up off my chest on the press. I compete in a single ply fed and the Titan Katana Bench Shirt is like using a 2 ply shirt. It’s amazing.” – Greg ,Oregon
“It took me a while to break it in. when I got it was really tight and I had a hard time getting any weight to touch, but by my third workout I touched and pressed 450, and my old PR was 420. Great shirt.” -Steve, California
“Bad ass shirt, plain and simple! Huge carryover in a single ply shirt.” Matt, Oklahoma
“ Not as forgiving as my Rage X, I had a hard time finding the groove. A little hard to use” -Michael, Ontario
“Wow, tons of pop. Definitely a step up in design and performance from the F-6.” Stuart, Massachusetts
“ I bought a 2 ply Titan Katana and it was way too much shirt for me. I couldn’t even touch with 100lbs more than my old PR. The thing folded me in half.” John, Arizona
“The best single ply shirt there is…period. I’ve been competing for 12 years and have never gotten as much out of a shirt just by putting it on. I don’t even need to jack the chest plate down, it doesn’t need it.” – Larry, Idaho
