    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

    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.

    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.

    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 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
