i use 2 belts. just for everyday lifting a nice leather belt so i dont get a hernia, since they are hereditary in my family (my dad and all 4 of his brothers have or had them). for my heavy squat, bench, and deadlift i like the 10 mm lever belt, but its like $80. you can tell the difference in a heavy squat from the leather to the 10 mm lever belt. the lever belt is a lot stiffer and gives excellent lower back support with heavy loads.

I've actually only used two belts ever. One was purchased at big 5. The other was bobs. Bobs trumps it by far. What price range are you looking at? Also are you planning to compete in this belt? Or is it just a safety thing?

I have a single prong 13mm elite fts. Ive worn belts before but they pinched my fat and bruised. The one I have now is great. Comfortable and didnt take too long to break in. Squat and deads.

I found the Titan toro bravo belt for like 70 and the titan longhorn for 80. I didn't know if they were good quality belts or not.

i just picked up a elitefts 6.5 mm single prong. i plan on wearing it 275 and up on the squat and 325 and up dl'ing. i had a 13 mm, but had trouble getting down to the bar for dl'ing so i never used it. i think the thinner belt will let me get down to the bar, feels like it anyway. we'll see...

I take it that you no longer have your 13mm belt?
