Is there anyone is our times who ONLY wear t'philin made according to the shitta of Rabenu Tam - to the exclusion of "Rashi" t'philin?

There are a handful of people, I think Rav Yoel Bin Nun is among them, who wear only Rabbeinu Tam tefillin because ancient tefillin found in Bar Kochba grave follow his order of parshiyos.

This sounds specious. Can you source it? –  Double AA Feb 19 at 4:23
I can source the order of the parshiyos in bar kokhba era tefillin. I can't source people who put them on without tracking them down and confirming with each one. –  Yitzchak Feb 19 at 4:30
...or by finding writings of theirs online, or testimony of others about them... –  Double AA Feb 19 at 4:31
The bar kokhba era tefillin are there for anyone to see at the Israel Museum. They also laid the parshiyos flat like rabbeinu tam. I will google around for sources tomorrow, bl"n and if I don't find any within a reasonable amount of time I'll chalk it up to rumor and delete the answer. –  Yitzchak Feb 19 at 4:34
