What is the DL world record right now? I know some of the better Ol'ers are up in the 850-900 range, certainly knocking on that top end.
Some of my best and easiest DL'ing was on the heals of a lot of OL. I had an easy 2.5xbw...but this is from a base of PL years ago when I was at a 3.1xBW.
I think Josh Everett is at like a 3.15xBW and is "just" an Olifter.
Interesting stuff to be sure although Mark Twights comment on the development of the DL sounds a lot like some material that people have crucified Glassman about...
