Anyone using a lever? Single vs double prong?  Its time to get a belt on, I dont see anyplace I can get locally. Inzer, Cardillo seem to be optimum quality brands. Ive read quite a bit, if I could get some personal opinions on what you guys are using that would help a lot.

Inzer Lever 10mm here.

Best item in my gym bag by far.  Would not use anything else for squats.



I also have a Scheik 9mm dual prong.  I like that one for deads.

Not prongs like your bottom belt, just was mentioning the typical hooks/prongs on the lever belt.

Hmm let me trty this again. http://www.titansupport.com/products/powerlifting-belts/texas-powerlifting-belts/toro-bravo/toro-bravo-belt.html

I've got 4" leather, padded, dual prong belt from Altus that I use.  Very basic belt, but works for me and it was cheap.

Titan, 13mm, Lever Belt. w/ Snake Skin insert.

Snakeskin Belt

I'll have it for the rest of my life, or until someone steals it.  It is a massive belt, that is comfortable. I absolutely love it.

I had it with me at the NY Meet.

Jim, that doesn't look like a 10mm, that looks like the 13.

I have the same belt myself (custom charcoal) 13 mm. It's an awesome belt, though I want to get the 2 inch width for deadlifting. I can really DL in the one I have.


If you want to look at another option... you should check out Inzer ratchet belt for $140.00

The Inzer site has the same pic for the 10 and 13 mm.

That ratchet belt looks cool too.

You will love the 10mm lever.

I require 2 beers though.
