    Any recommendations on belts?

    I'm thinking of going with an Inzer, but perhaps it's better to just get an RDX one to start off with.

    Inzer belts are good quality, with belts your best bet is to invest in something that will last - I made the mistake of buying too many shit ones to start off. The best value for money imo is the metal single prong

    Levers are good if you have them set right but it's such a pain changing the size on them plus the cheap ones break all the time.

    So yeah get the metal if you want a good belt for life ;)

    My Harris is decent. Inzer are great and the strong belts from Mark bell are really nice too. The Strong come preworn so as re nice and supple and flexible.

    I changed over to lever belts a while ago. I have this one which is my first ever so I cannot compare it to any other brand. Needless to say it has served me well and fits firmly. It feels a little awkward with squats but still gets the job done. I really appreciate its support in deadlifting however.

    One thing I think is you do need to try these on if you are uncertain of sizes. I was lucky as this place is about 20 minutes from me.

    I've had an Inzer Forever 10mm and 13mm for a long time. Great belts, and quite stiff. If you're after something a bit softer, the Metal single prong might be the go though. Metal quality is top notch.

    I've got a couple Spud triple ply belts but they never really get used. Harris belts go alright too. UGE levers also good.

    As @benn said, go for quality and you won't need another belt again.

    Everywhere is low on stock, and Harris had a 20% off special running, so only have baby belts left :( I got all amped ordering off Amazon due to the savings, until I got to the $150 shipping cost bit :lol:

    Even UGE was out of the Metal single-prong, so I decided to go with the 13mm Inzer lever belt. Here's to 300kg deadlifts once it arrives. I already feel stronger just spending the 200 dorrels.

    Haha, the 13mm Inzer is sturdy as fuck and still a good choice. It'll be quite stiff for a while and you may end up with some bruises around your hips til it's broken in a bit.

    Did you go for any fancy colour? They usually take a while to ship on non standard colours.

    I only wear shades of black, bro ;) And I've got enough padding around the waist to limit the bruising. Else I might even wear one of those neoprene corsets.
