I have so far been able to get 130 pounds on power clean, is this a good max? Or is it weak? Also, I can't seem to break the 130 barrier and get 135, any tips on how I can get it?
A good max is, "more than you did last time." Period.
As far as improving, it's heavily dependent on executing the movement properly. Look into getting a good coach to help. You can learn on your own, but it will take a lot longer and you'll probably develop bad habits along the way.

Yeah I'm in high school weight lifting, but I've heard using a 25 a 10 and a 5 instead of a 45 makes it easier because it disperses the weight, is this true?
^^^ i dont think that will make any difference.
Post up your stats: age, weight, height, goals
You can't argue with that logic.No, it makes it easier because 25+10+5 is only 40 pounds as opposed to 45.
Vertical 29" Running= 37" 40= 4.70
Big 3: Squat= 320
OL: .....Clean= 270 150%
...........Snatch= 200 111%
I would think using 25s etc etc instead of using 45s would make the power clean harder because it would start the bar closer to the ground. assuming the weight with 25 plates is equal to the one with 45s

Using more weights shifts the center of gravity out away from the bar. Harder maybe... Better balance probably.
You are lifting the same amount just with a different center of gravity.
Being closer to the ground would just help throw the entire balance off because how many people can keep form all the way to the ground?
