    contest 650, 705 was missed at lockout.

    training easy 700. not sure on lifts without suit

    favorite suit is so far an old centurion since it's easy to use, suit that gives the most to my lift when i do everything right is my velocity

    sorry and at an actual 198 bw

    Meet in suit:
    220 - 677
    242 - 710

    I don't really wear my deadlift suit in training. I also don't try a max deadlift raw. To max, I usually use deadlift variations like deficit deads, deads off boxes, deads against bands, deads against chains, reverse bands, etc.

    I wear a metal king pro and deadlift conventional.

    Gym lift- 738 @ 220 (2009)
    Meet- 727 @ 217 (2009)

    Raw: 690 @210 (2006)

    I compete single ply and pull sumo, so I love the old Titan Centurion Dual Quad. I can have it altered any way I want depending on body weight and make it feel like a brand new suit.

    Used to pull in an Inzer z-suit but grew out of it.

    500lbs deadlift raw without suit at 20lbs BW. This was in training. never used a suit and would never want to. Too much faffing around!

    Some very strong people in her definitely. Not only back strength, but grip strength too!

    Conventional (training only) - 545 Raw
    Sumo - 505 Raw, and 555 suit (in training)
    562 in suit (meet)

    Planning to work on my conventional DL and try to compete using that style to save my hips a little after squatting wide. Just need to work on getting down to the bar with gear on and my alligator arms.

    Best meet pulls:
    600 @ 220 w/ a single-ply Inzer Champion (a singlet basically lol)
    622.7 @ 220 (2 reds for windmill at top, but clean besides that)

    I'll be pulling in Metal Pro briefs my next meet, so we'll see if I can PR.

    Great thread, I've always wondered how much a DL suit really helps, it appears that for some people, they are getting a good 30-40 pounds out of their suit. Very interesting. Curious as to if that is the norm?

    My best pull ever was a stiff-legged (from the floor) totally (no belt, suit etc.) 685 lbs. I had an injury to my quad and had to train around it. I am just now starting to get quad drive back into the equation, so we shall see.

    Best raw pull was 460 @ 190 sumo, Currently 360 @ 220 :/

    I pulled 415 @ 190 in a Inzer Champion squat suit, which was a 10lbs PR at the time. I hadn't been using gear that long, and never re attempted.

    I tried pulling in a suit, but just didn't care for it, same with squatting in a suit. I used the suit 8-10 times and just didn't care for it.
    Any way, 660 no suit, belt only - in training at 255. I've never competed.

    Sorry, I lied - I don't pull with a belt, it's too uncomfortable.

    conventional puller
    600 raw - 10/25/08 @ 275lbs
    622.5 suited - 1/23/09 @ 275lbs
    used a 56 Viking metal deadlifter single ply.

    been playing around with different suits and haven't gotten much out of them, i tend not get a good fit in them.

    I bought a titan velocity but haven't pulled in it yet as I do 99% of my deadlift training raw.

    pulled like 615 or something raw in training conventional,so if I ever do get a deadlift suit that works....yay.

    god DAMN chris. From looking at a few of your pics I'm thinking its all the lat strength, or the RESULTS... XD

    551 in a meet a little while ago. that was a 20 lb all time PR. I'm going to try and beat this on monday... XD

    Never tried a suit. I'll get some gear one of these days, though not anytime soon.

    Pulled 685 @ 210 lbs last year, 2nd time in a Metal King Pro Deadlifter (conventional). This one was ugly with a grinding hitch.

    Belt and straps hit 655 x 2 @ 220 lbs in the gym and 600 lbs x 5 touch and go @ 225 lbs.
