If you squat wide also, your squat suit will probably work well for both. Most guys I know who squat wide and pull sumo will pull in their Titan Boss or Inzer Canvas. I'm not sure about guys who use Metal.

Titan's Velocity is a very good conventional suit, but I've not tried the sumo version.

I like something looser, my canvas is too much to deadlift in. I use a worn out Pro squatter. I had a King suit that worked pretty well, but I grew out of it

I get 125lbs out of my single ply suit and it's not even very tight.

Deeder--

With respect to the Metal King Sumo Deadlifter, is that the IPF approved version?

Thanks.

I used the wide stance velocity at my last meet... i bombed in the deadlift. the suit was a bit tight, I had problems with the legs rolling up on me and pinching the crap out of my legs when I tried to get to the bar, and I couldn't hold onto the bar because of forearm issues..... So make of that what you want. I dont' think my evaluation of that suit is a good one, but I think its based on me, not poor quality of the suit.

I personally am beginning to think I pull best in just a pair of single ply briefs. I dont' think the suits are what they are cracked up to be---at least if you are lifting in single ply.

Damn, 125lbs is pretty good. I have heard nothing but good things about Metal sumo DL suits.

Deeder--

How long did you have to work with the suit to get that kind of increase?
