Just to add a different side, I don't have an Inzer belt, but I will say a decent one that I currently use and really like is one of the Elitefts Retro series belts. They're pretty cheap, well constructed, and 10mm which is fine for me (and probably works fine for most of us here).

Just throwing that out there. I know when I was looking to buy a belt, I looked at a several different companies (Inzer, elitefts, apt, etc...) and Inzer was the only one I could generally find reviews on (which I guess does say something about it). If you're considering other options (which I was due to price at the time) the elitefts belts are a good alternative.

I've been using a friend's buckle one with a quick-release, and I've found there are times that I wanted it one notch looser. Actually, that may have been when benching.

But yeah, they make quick-release buckle belts too.

I find this shitty. Feels like I'm in a god damn chastity belt.

An overlooked advantage of the lever is that you can get it off quickly as well. That ability to uncompress in half a second after doing a heavy set is pretty huge.
+1.

I just bought the Titan Toro Lever (10 mm). 13mm is here:

I really like it. I went with Titan because I heard stories about shitty service from Inzer. The customer support from Titan was great.

They're the # 1 distributor of IAD products for a good reason.

I hope that helps.
that does help, thanks - ive never used a belt of any kind so i was just wondering about that

The lever allows for a tighter fit. I have seen claims of getting an extra notch tighter with a lever vs a prong belt. However I dont know this for a fact. From person experience it was a lot tougher to get the belt as tight with prongs...
thats what i guessed - since this will allegedly last "a lifetime", it may be worth sprining for the better one

this is pretty much why i am going with them... maybe there's something better, maybe there's a better 'value' but at least I know this will be good




thanks for the responses everyone

I kinda wish i had a lever but the econo belt works for me.
http://www.inzernet.com/detail_econo...ON_POWER_BELT#

I wasn't sure if i wanted a belt, so i got this because its only $40.

1) Fuck yes

2) It's easier and quicker to get tight, will go tighter than a regular belt and massively easier and faster to undo.

That's not how you're supposed to wear a belt.

13mm - you'll never second-guess yourself.

10mm - I'm second guessing myself because all of you are recommending 13mms.

They still haven't shipped my order. Should I e-mail them to change the 10mm to a 13mm? Keep in mind my total is only a little over 1000, I'm not sure if that makes a difference or not.
