I recently received my Inzer Forever belt and I love that sucker. It is think, stiff, heavy, and leaves some nice love marks on my sides after squatting. The sizing is a bit funky and I'll probably have to blow a few holes in mine if I lose a little gut, but for heavy squats this thing is a Cadillac.

I love my Schiek. I use it for heavy sets of everything except bench. I've had it for over 15 years (never used it much until the last year though!), so I can say that the material will stick around for a while.

I just watched the Schiek video on how to fasten it properly. That was interesting, seemed useful, so I'm going to try it out the next time I'm on my 5/3/1 "1" week of lifting.

Just thought I'd bump this thread. Elitefts has some double pronged belts for half off. Some sort of an oversight with regards to shipping.

I ordered one yesterday.

Re: belts, I love the Inzer and EliteFTS (or leather) for slow lifts and velcro for Oly.

Thanks for the insight Derek, I also ordered one. 32 somtin bucks is a steal for a good leather belt.

Thanks Don -- based on this I ordered the large Inzer lever. Just got it and used it for my squat workout last night, and couldn't be happier with it. 12 holes with 1" centers gives the 11" of adjustment range.

Also, fwiw for any fellow Canadians, I had to place a phone order, since Inzer's website insisted on charging me over $60 for shipping to Canada. End result was around 15 for shipping, and 20 for duty+taxes from UPS, and the end result was still cheaper than ordering from a Canadian source, given the exchange rate right now.

has anyone who has ordered one of the leather belts from Elite gotten theirs yet? I'm still waiting, haven't even gotten a tracking number or anything, been trying to get in touch with them about it.

I'm doing all of my 5/3/1 work sets with my Schiek belt, very happy with the progress so far. I don't think I'll ever really want/need a second belt that wouldn't be as good for OL as this one.

I had emailed a belt question to EFTS. They said that they are still waiting for the MFG to get the new shipment to them. Apparently there was a quality problem. I have not been to the site lately, but previously they didn't even have thier belts up on the site for sale. I would email them. They responded that day to my question.
