    Thanks for posting. I think it is a good review.

    I have never handled 5e Olas, but of the others, I like the NAR ETD flat pack and find it easiest to use.

    The Israeli is great for getting pressure, but a little difficult one-handed. When going through the pressure bar, I find it difficult to keep flat which is what is required for best pressure.

    The H on the H&H just felt awkward to me when trying to use , especially one-handed. I also don’t remember anything preventing it from unrolling like the other two.

    With the NAR, the hook and loop straps that keep it from unrolling, also help keep it in place and tight while wrapping. As far as not having a device for added pressure, I know when practicing, I can get the wrap tight enough to cause tingling and numbness without even adding the twist.
