Voodoo Floss Bands vs Voodoo X Bands

Planning to purchase one of these floss bands but curious if anyone has experience using one over the other.

Re: Voodoo Floss Bands vs Voodoo X Bands

The Voodoo Floss Bands were an absolute godsend for me for my tennis elbow issues that I've had for about ten years now.

The X Bands weren't available yet at the time. I think the only difference is the X Bands are made of thicker material and can apply more compression.

MobilityWOD has some amazing videos on how to use them.

I now use them for sore anything that I can wrap them with. Old sprained ankle? Check. Calf tightness? Check. Shoulder tightness? Check. Everything and anything. They are amazing.

Thanks Stanley, I was just undecided if I should get the Voodoo X because it had more compression therefore better right?

I haven't used them yet, but I would imagine more compression is better, so yes I would get them.

Re: Voodoo Floss Bands vs Voodoo X Bands

I just made my own with an old bicycle inner tube. Works fantastically on my tennis elbow and wrists.
