I have been mulling over a new deadlift suit for quite some time.
Saturday I finally made my final decision and based on how much I love my 2 ply Overkill shirt I decided to continue the trend and go with a 2ply Overkill deadlift.
Rudy is going to cut it for a conventional style and I also added the velcro straps to help with some weight fluctuation.
Very excited. Anyone who has any experience lifting in the Poly suits please chime in. Thanks
My wife, Kristin pulls 285(sumo) in her Overkill suit at 4:50, at 5:25 I pull 7 plates, and at 5:38 I hit a PR of 735(conventional).
All using Overkill 2-ply deadlift suits. I should add that my wife's is really loose as she just dropped a weight class.
Keep the straps LOOSE and drop your hips back and down to start the pull.
The suit has been great for me, I pull in it without briefs and I keep hitting PR's a year in to the life of the suit.
Meet PR's: 1008-750-750 - 2464
Gym PR's... don't count ... time to do another meet!
good call on having velcro straps. they are extremely helpful in every way you can imagine. you can read my reviews on all the PL gear I had in a thread I made in this PL section
Sounds good, a review would be cool when you get it
Squat briefs only 625 @ 210
Bench geared 525 @ 210
Deadlift geared 650 @ 220

Thanks for the Vid Bar
jtteg_x my last suit had sewn straps and due to my height and the fact that it was a stock size it developed some bad habits in my posture. Lifting raw has done a lot to correct that and I figured now with a customer suit and adjustable straps I can dial it in a bit more exact now.
Build time is approx 6 weeks but as soon as I get it and get some workouts in I will give a very in depth review
