i pull in the metal ace squater and wear an old marathon squat suit as briefs underneath. this has worked better for me than the king dead lift suit.
i have also tried to pull in the titan boss suit. no good for myself, just cant get in the right starting position
the other wk, i forgot my ace suit for deadlift day and just had the marathon suit, i used it and hit a pr of 585x8. the suit is from about 1993 and still has life beyond comprehension. it very well may be the best suit to pull in ever if you can find one especially if you lift single ply.
Titan Velocity baby!!! I get at least 40-50 lbs. out of it (conv.)... Very good pop off the floor!
Mine is very tight/ stiff though, so sometimes I lose my air if I dont get to the bar fast enough.
On a side note, from the looks of this theard, sounds like the "Metal" suits kick a**... Gotta give them a try!
BTW, Sgt Rock... "Hoo Rahh" jar head!
82nd Airborne, all the way sir!
Hey Brent! I've used the Inzer Max DL, The original Titan conventional DL suit, and a Titan centurion squat suit. This past year I've used the Titan Velocity (got one with reg. straps and one with Aplix adjustable). It is my favorite suit yet! The weight flys up very fast and gives me a fighting chance to get to lockout before my left hand rolls out (the bad one). Unless you have to travel a long way down to the bar I'd get it a size or 2 small. It's got some spring to in like people tell me the old Marothons had. I wear 50 Centurion and a 52 Boss. I wear a 46 Velocity and can get to the bar in good form. Good luck in your future meets!

I looked on Ken Anderson's website and the Velocity isn't listed. Where can you get one? Titan's website also doesn't list it.
I pull in a Inzer Max DL, and I have to say it is the best I have used yet. I get around 50-60lbs out of it with a sumo stance, using it along with briefs. I have also used a Z-Suit, Champion suit and a Fusion. I could never get the right fit on the Fusion and the Z-Suit and Champion suit were OK but the straps really dug into my shoulders.
I pull conventional and have pulled in a Z-Suit, Inzer Max DL, BOSS(tried it only once), Metal Pro Deadlifter, and Metal King Pro Deadlifter. The Metal King Pro is by far the best suit i have used. I get about 80-100lbs out of it.
