Last of the belly fat

Hello! I've used to be a little bit overweight, 2.5 years ago I was 5'10 weighing in at 205. After almost 2 years of working out 5-6 days a week and dieting, I am down to 165 with 159 being the lowest I ever achieved. Once I got to 159, about 15 months ago, I started lifting weights heavily. I went on a strict diet to build muscle and now I am very well proportioned. I have been on a quest to gain the illusive six pack, but cannot seem to lose the last tiny bit of belly fat that will give it to me! Sometimes I even feel like my belly is still fat, unless I flex it. My ab muscles are VERY strong, and the upper and lower body are completely cut. The last thing I want is for the last few ounces of belly fat to leave. I've been working on it for about 6 months, running, hiking, biking...even running 4 miles 6 days a week plus dieting, but nothing seems to work. Am I destined to be without a six pack no matter what I do? Even guys I talk to who are into body building say that my exercise regimen and diet are perfect! Any ideas?

Ankle braces go on fast and the athlete does the applying so there is no waiting in line to be taped. Valuable trainer and coach time is saved when taping is eliminated. In an independent sudy of athletes Swede-O ankle braces were chosen as most comfortable.
