Another thing I will say is I VERY RARELY see videos on here so I hope seeing me post videos will get more people to post videos. I will say this though I probably wont be posting anymore videos for a while
Plus if I get some help on my form that would be pretty cool too.

Focus on keeping your chest up, and "pulling back" with your shoulders and erectors when you're coming out of the hole. I have to concentrate on this same thing - my squats used to look like that. Box Squats and beginning each concentric by "pulling back" has helped alot.
You've got the strength, you just need to keep that back straight to prevent future injury.

Another thing I've started doing to combat "good morning"-ing out of the hole is to pull my hands closer together on the bar. This forces the scapulae back and together and sets up the upper back in a "locked" position, making it harder for the back to arch up. I learned that from Kleen.

I tallied 335/405/455 at my first meet at 230ish. Thereafter, learning some new tricks, I never competed again but I was 205 with a 365/455/505. You can do this!
Do you use a bench shirt/squat suit or train with chains, switching up between power/speed movements?
In my limited experience, I'll help the best I can.

Tomahawk, nice max on the deadlift. For a max, you did a lot of pulling with your hips too, which is good.
For working weight, I would suggest you work to set your lumbar better. Even though your hips were low, your back was still rounded at the start of the lift. This could be due to fatigue, but may also be due to muscular imbalances. Most commonly, it is the result of tight hamstrings (and often cross-lower body syndrome). Tight hamstrings will pull your pelvis underneath you (make you go duck butt) before the lift begins. Start stretching your hamstrings each night. I'd also suggest, if you don't already do so, to perform a few sets of glute activation before dead lifting.
Impressive weight! Hate the octagon plates.

Hey Tom, I showed my 12 yr old son your lifts and he had this look of amazement and said "that's just ... ridiculous." I said "I know."

I know I want a double prong and its probably between APT(most likely) and Inzer. APT is what I have been using and I like it.

Very impressive lift.
My only concern would be in form doing this on a weekly basis. Your back rounds and your hips raise before your shoulders, placing a lot of stress on the lumbar vertebrae (as the vertebrae shift from a flexed position to an extended). This is ok when maxing out, but on a regular basis will slowly wear away at the intervertebral disks, and can lead to a slipped or even ruptured disk.
