Ok time to let the cat out of the bag....at least a bit. As you know I have worn virtually every deadlift suit I could ever get my hands on, and designed and tested more than one brand as well. I recently designed and tested TWO new DL suits, and wore one of them at the recent worlds and pulled a WABDL PR 755 with a miss at 810 weighing 234. I had an all time PR in training with 775 but needed the 755 for the win so I did not go any higher at the show. The deadlift suit has not been named yet, but its nicknamed the TITAN ROCKET. Velcro straps, tightness in the crotch and hips like the Metal and Marathon suits, but what sets it apart is not just the extreme pop off the floor sumo AND conventional, but the CARRYOVER to lockout. It is in my opinion, taken over as THE BEST one ply suit available, but you can try for yourself. I was VERY picky when making this suit and would only accept perfection, they knew that going in. Wide straps, thick material, and special APLIX VELCRO type straps make it one of a kind. I know Ken Anderson is ordering some off of my template, and I believe Pete will have some very soon as well. Not sure on price, but its worth whatever it costs. I will have a long article on dl gear including suits, e shirts, belts, briefs, shoes, you name it, coming out soon and it will submitted to PL USA as well as ALN. Stay tuned! To answer emails and pms, yes I did use the Inzer Fusion with great conventional results early in my cycle and I have nothing bad to say about IAD, John or the Fusion, but the Titan worked better so that is why I wore it at the show, its really that simple. I wore several suits very early in the cycle and wore the one that performed best, just like any of you would. Train hard! I will have youtube of my suited DLs in practice and at the show soon.

How sad do you have to be to lie to people on the internet. How weak or broken do you have to be to lie about how tough you are, how much you lift or how big or lean you are? You are lying to people you will never meet. The worst part is your the only one that does not see the lies show through so clearly. Just be happy with what you have, it may not be what you once had, but it is still better than many will ever have
Sounds cool Brent! Let us know how it goes.

The cut is different, but both are finished products.
That is pretty cool that you were able to custom fabricate your own suit.
Great deadlifting also - well over tripple bodyweight is HUGE!
first off - nice pulling!
second - this sounds awesome. When I start pulling 500+ (and get more money lol) one of these may be in consideration.

Thats awesome man, congrats on the pull and the new suit design.
Sweet deal. I saw smokinhawk asked the question up there, but I can't tell if your answer just refers to the cut question.
Is it available in single-ply as well?

I've been waiting for mine for a while now, i'll keep everyone updated. My custom titan dl sumo is pretty awesome.
To quell the confusion: The suit is ONE PLY, TWO versions with the sumo cut OR conventional cut. The TWO PLY suit I designed is NOT available yet, but is almost finished and is a TOTALLY different suit, but is still a TITAN brand.
When are these going to be available? Any idea on price?
Any more updates on the DL suit????
I don't want to sound like an advertisement, but in the spirit of helping, Ken Anderson will have them available asap so I would go through him.
I believe he is but not sure! You can order through his website, google KEN ANDERSON TITAN POWERLIFTING and you can find him. I know he had some of my suits at the worlds and sold out in literally a few minutes. I know of several world class dlers that are making the switch as well. In my opinion the best gear is designed and tested by the ones using it, this suit was carefully thought out and brutally tested with input from my training partners and 20 plus years on the platform. I stand by it 100 percent. You can bet you will start seeing the ROCKET in meets all over the world. The Finns and other Europeans were all over this suit at the worlds.
i can't wait for this to come out. i've been wanting to try out a dl suit but i've heard that the metal king conv. suit isn't all that great. will it still work well even if you start with your hips pretty high?
btw here is the link to Ken's site

Carryover for me is so hard to measure as I don't max out raw. I am guessing 40lbs plus? For an elite deadlifter that is ALOT conventional. I get a bit more out of it sumo as would anyone.
Hmm.... now i know what suit to try for DL next year...

Im going to the WPC Worlds on Sunday and I hope Ken Anderson is there so I can talk to him about this DL suit, and maybe put a order in for one!!!!!!
I am telling you guys....this suit is unmatched in its performance. And this just in...
TWO MORE NEW TITAN ROCKET USERS:
They both HAD to have one after getting to check out my suit and watching it in action, and they both are signing on with Ken Anderson, now THAT says alot.
