    Nice does the bench belt give a good amount of support I've never used a belt for bench

    That's what I figured . Did it take much to break-in the belts ?

    Went great, not as stiff as the 13 mm which I like. Worked up to 90% and smoked it. Big difference having something to push your abs against.

    It gets the napalm

  6. This may sound weird, but try to find a used belt that's already well broken in. There will still be plenty of life left in the belt as they literally last for decades. One of the guys I train with uses a belt that has been passed down by 3-4 people since the late 80's and it still provides plenty of support.

    Nice I'm really thinking about buying a Titan Longhorn 10mm single prong. I can get one for just under 90 shipped. I wish the elitefts 13mm was a little lower in price.

    Sounds good to me but I don't know anyone that has a used one sucks working out by myself

  9. I finally got my Titan Longhorn 10mm lever just before christmas. Never got an email w/ tracking info saying it shipped; I just ordered it and it popped up on my doorstep 7 wks later. The color I specified in the size I specified. This belt will fit me if I drop 40lbs or gain 60 in all honesty. Lifetime warranty, it was comfy the third time I lifted in it, and it's been the greatest thing since sliced bread. Best lifting-related investment ever, 110 shipped. Blows away anything I've ever worn from other people; inzer, apt, etc. The quality is top notch in the belt and lever - this baby is SO worth the price of admission and will last me forever.

    I should note I only use it for squat and dl 80% and up; can't comment on bench comfort. Probably lousy compared to a tapered belt.

    Thanks for the feedback man! I really want to pick up a single prong 10mm longhorn. Seems to be a really good belt for the price for sure

  11. Worth noting that the lever itself is only a yr warranty and sounds like a lot of guys get several yrs at least out of em. The prong is under the belts warranty though - lifetime, at least for suede. Leather is only lifetime provided you oil it routinely. I love my suede though and it's cheaper so can't go wrong there. I don't mind buying a couple new levers down the road but it's significantly pricier than a single prong in the long run.

    That's good to know for sure. I think I'm going to get the single prong. I just didn't know if the prong came open during heavy loads or if it stayyed closed? I've seen some that say it popped open

  13. No experience there personally to comment, but I can say that this belt is serious and legit; it's hard to me to imagine anything like happening with something so sturdy even if mine were pronged. I just love how fast a lever is on and off. Flip latch, get tight/take air, lift, unlatch. Almost feels like cheating.

    Nice I might have to check it out. Where did you pick it up?

  15. Ordered directly from titan support systems since I wanted maroon and to specify the size. 110 shipped and took 7 weeks. Buddy got one of the ready to order blue 10mm Longhorn Leverbelts I believe from Lifting Large because it was like 80ish shipped I THINK. Def cheaper and a bit quicker as long as you're happy with black, blue or blood red and don't need embroidering or anything special. But his still took like 5-6 weeks to show up.

    Alright cool thanks man. I'll def check out the lever and its good to know that it doesn't take too long to break-in

    What do you mean no cover?

  21. I use a 6.5 single prong powerlifting belt and it works great. As far as brand I dont think that makes a huge difference.

    Is it the elitefts p2 6.5mm belt or a different one.

  23. I haven't seen any other 6.5 mm belts besides that one

    Is that their BP belt? I am interested in their 13 mm belt but the price might dissuade me.

    Yeah they look nice and seem to break in in only a few sessions. And i like that its a 13mm single prong belt. But $130+ shipped, a little steep to me. I've been waiting for them to go on sale though

    They have a bench belt and then the 2 power belts. One is 6.5 mm and the other is 13mm
