When competing in power lifting competitions can you use straps while dead lifting?

Unless the federation also allowed you to use a forklift. No.

I do not think a forklift and straps are even close to having the same effect.

I think you are extremely adept at stating the obvious.

There are no powerlifting feds to my knowledge that allow straps for deadlifting.

Isn't that Ernie Frantz federation letting people use straps? or did that die out

I think they pulled that. Initially they were letting people use elbow wraps on the bench and straps on the deadlift, but last I heard they pulled those two things. Either way, Ernie's fed never really came to much
