Removal of APT Gear from IPF approved list

In a statement today the IPF has announced that APT-Pro Wrist Straps will no longer be approved for competition. This ruling will go in effect on January 1st of 2012. This means that at all USAPL sanctioned meets as of January 1st you will no longer be able to wear APT gear. The only gear that will be approved is made by Titan, Metal and Inzer.

Here is the statement that was posted on the IPF website:
