    Top of the line? Really?

    I can't attest to the quality of this piece, but I know their other products are top notch.

    That is APT, I have attempted to do business with them, they don't answer their phone, they don't return calls, they do not respond to their forum, about the only partially reliable method of contact seems to be to a Debbie thru e-mail, but see seems to loose focus from one e-mail to the next

    Ahah WTF, my work blocks that site, and under reason it says: "pr0n" (the real spelling though).

    Our IT department is super petty, I really hope I don't get some notice about this.

    RichMcGuire, is it just a regular metal chain? I was thinking about doing the same thing.

    Are there any problems with it sliding or anything like that?

    Yep, just a metal chain with a hook on it. Theres no slippage at all. It can just hurt your skin if you arent careful. I swing it around my waist a couple times and then through the plates or around the dumbell and hook it together.

    I wouldn't worry about top of the line. I've had the same cheap belt for over a decade. Used it thousands of times. Still like new. Treat it well and it will treat you well.
